Housewife Danielle: Is It Botox Or Brow Lift??

People are always talking about the 48-year-old, controversial New
Jersey housewife, especially her eyebrows, and to what she has
admitted to—4 boob jobs.

take a closer look….Has Danielle Staub over-dosed on the Botox,
or are her very high eyebrows, the result of a brow lift?

knows for sure.

A brow lift is a plastic
surgery procedure designed to correct sagging in the forehead
skin, upper eyelids, and eyebrows. It is a common cosmetic
surgery done under local anesthesia with minimal discomfort.

procedure smooths the forehead, reduces frown lines, and elevates
the position of the eyebrow line. It gives back a more youthful
and relaxed appearance, when done right.
cosmetic can achieve a mini brow lift, temporarily, at least
for about 3 months. The number one injectable can work wonders
on the face, says Dr. Frederick Brandt, celebrity dermatologist.
cosmetic has revolutionized our field,” Dr. Brandt says. “Botox
is easy to administer, safe and effective.”
Brandt has been credited with creatively injecting Botox to
“lift” the face and make patients appear several years younger
and refreshed. “The Botox cosmetic is used to create a ‘face-lift” by
raising the eyebrows and tightening the neck platysmal bands and
diminishing the appearance of the horizontal lines of the neck. As
always, these procedures have to be performed by trained physicians.”
trouble occurs when Botox is placed inappropriately, and the
patient ends up with very raised brow ends like Danielle and, er,
Star Trek’s Dr. Spock.
Here’s how
one Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Alexander Rivkin explains
it at his website:
“When Dr. Rivkin teaches
doctors and nurses how to administer BOTOX®, he stresses the critical
importance of a natural result. The patient should be able to move their
face. Their forehead should not look too tight. Their smile should be
natural. Their eyebrows should not arch like Dr. Spock!

way to do it right is to always customize the dose of BOTOX® to the
individual. That means taking the time to watch them move their facial
muscles and knowing where and how much to inject.”
