Brow Lift Beverly Hills – Forehead Lift

Introduction

A large number of patients complain about their upper face. Friends and family members might tell them that they look tired, sad, or even angry. Rejuvenation of the upper face is a multifaceted problem that often requires improvement of the forehead and eyes.

As we age, the forehead and eyebrows begin to descend into the eyes. People often mistake this for extra upper eyelid skin, but it is actually the lateral (side) eyebrow that has fallen, creating a hood over the upper part of the eyes. This further worsens the excess skin on the upper eyelids. To overcome this, patients raise their eyebrows (without knowing it) and this worsens the transverse wrinkles on the forehead. They may also see worsening of the vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows. These patients are great candidates for a brow lift in Beverly Hills.

Surgery

Brow lift, or forehead lift, is a procedure to raise the eyebrows back to the normal position, improve the wrinkles on the forehead, and improve the wrinkles between the eyebrows. Brow lift is the facelift procedure for the upper third of the face. The surgery is classically done in conjunction with an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) for comprehensive eye rejuvenation.

There are many different techniques for performing a brow lift. The choice of technique is determined on a case by case basis. A coronal brow lift is done by hiding an incision in the scalp, behind the hairline, that extends from ear to ear. A hairline brow lift (trichial) may be advantageous in patients with very high foreheads, because the hairline will not be raised. Temporal brow lift can be performed if only a portion of the eyebrow needs to be raised. Endoscopic brow lifts are performed through 3-5 small incisions hidden in the scalp, and avoids the large scar in the scalp, while preserving scalp sensation. Surgery is done as an outpatient in our Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Center.
