One of the most common procedures performed for people who are unhappy with wrinkled, sagging skin on the forehead is a brow lift.

These procedures are ideal for people who want to soften a scowling expression and look more youthful and approachable. Your Los Angeles plastic surgeon at Marina Plastic Surgery will listen to your facial concerns, go over your possibilities, and come up with a custom treatment plan that satisfies your aesthetic goals during your consultation. Make an appointment consultation to learn more about Brow Lifts in Los Angeles and see if they are the appropriate procedure for you.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is an outpatient procedure that smooths the forehead, elevates your brows, and reduces forehead wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. Our Los Angeles Brow Lift procedure is frequently combined with other treatments, such as a facelift or eyelid surgery, for a completely refreshed appearance.
Every Brow Lift procedure is performed differently, on a case-by-case basis, to ensure that your results are characteristic of your aesthetic preferences and physical features. When you come in for your brow lift consult in Los Angeles, your surgeon will discuss your options with you. To find out how this procedure can take years off your appearance, receive a private consultation now during one of the select times our surgeons have set aside exclusively for Web visitors.
It used to be that cosmetic surgery was for the over 50 crowd. Patients waited until they looked awful and then asked for “the works.” Their results were dramatic, but, unfortunately, everyone could tell they just had surgery. Today, nearly one-third of those seeking facial rejuvenation surgery are between 35 and 50 years old. Modern surgical techniques can give them beautiful but natural-looking improvements.
Over the years, the brow area begins to sag, making you look tired, sad, or very angry all of the time. Minimal Incision Brow Lift is a quicker, less invasive way to erase years from your face with shorter incisions and less downtime than a Traditional Brow Lift.
Getting a brow lift can help in a lot of important ways. If you tighten the skin on your upper eyelids, your eyes will look bigger and younger. It can also get rid of the bags under your eyes, which can make you look older. The benefits of the minimal incision technique over traditional Brow Lift surgery include:
Overall, a traditional or mini brow lift may improve the balance of your face by improving your facial asymmetry.
The ideal patient for a brow lift at Marina Plastic Surgery should be smoke-free and in generally good health.
The majority of men and women who think about getting this surgery have deep horizontal lines on their foreheads, so-called "elevens" lines between their brows, or low-set brows that give them an angry or exhausted appearance. However, patients who have brows that sit high on their forehead might not be good candidates for a Brow Lift because the procedure could alter their ability to express themselves naturally. During your consultation, your doctor will evaluate your facial issues and decide what is ideal for your facial anatomy. Your procedure's objective is to make subtle changes and not have you seem windswept or astonished.
With the Brow Lift Los Angeles patients are getting an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia with deep sedation or general anesthesia. The procedure may take 1 to 2 hours. With the classical or “open” method, the incision is hidden just inside or by the hairline across the scalp and between the ears.
Your surgeon lessens the appearance of wrinkles by removing selected muscles and releasing tissues that cause the wrinkles. The eyebrows may also be elevated, and excess skin at the incision will be removed to allow a gentle redraping of your forehead skin. Wrinkles and frown lines often first appear in the brow and forehead area. A forehead lift or Brow Lift in Los Angeles can smooth out wrinkles and correct drooping brows and heavy lids to provide a younger, friendlier appearance. A brow lift can be performed alone or with other cosmetic procedures such as a facelift, eyelid surgery, or laser skin resurfacing.
A minimal incision, endoscopic Brow Lift is particularly effective for younger patients where the removal of excess skin is not required. This technique requires only a few tiny incisions that are concealed in the hairline and minimizes loss of sensation at the incision site. Since an endoscopic brow lift can significantly reduce the frown lines between the eyes, it is often performed in conjunction with upper eyelid surgery to achieve optimal results.
After Brow Lift surgery, it is recommended to take one to two weeks off from work to thoroughly recuperate and heal. Bruising and swelling are to be expected, but over-the-counter pain relievers can typically alleviate the discomfort. To prevent further swelling, you must refrain from intense exercise for around four weeks. In some cases, a surgical drain may be inserted at the incision site to remove excess fluid and blood, although the drain is normally removed at your next post-operative consultation. The sutures are removed one week after surgery unless your doctor utilized dissolvable stitches. For maximum healing, it is vital to adhere to all postoperative guidelines.
As soon as the bandages are removed, your forehead and brows will have a significantly more youthful appearance. Once edema and bruising have receded, complete effects are seen within six months. Your Brow Lift is permanent and typically lasts for up to ten years. However, your skin and forehead continue to age with time. With the aid of broad-spectrum sunscreen and medical-grade skincare, you can delay aging. Your experts at SJ Plastic Surgery can also educate you on dermal fillers and other anti-aging procedures.

While you're under anesthesia for your surgery, you won't feel any pain. Most people deal with any pain or discomfort during recovery by taking over-the-counter medicine.
Your procedure's price may differ from that of other patients depending on whether additional procedures are performed and the specifics of your treatment plan.
In comparison to other types of cosmetic surgery, a Brow Lift has no severe side effects or complications. However, certain risks include nausea, swelling, bruising, blood clots, and hair loss at the incision site.
Your doctor will discuss both surgical and non-surgical options for your brow lift surgery during your appointment. A surgical Brow Lift is invasive and requires up to two weeks of recovery time. However, it is the most effective method for altering the appearance of your forehead. Botox and dermal fillers are effective solutions for non-surgical brow lifts since they provide progressive improvement.
