When the upper portion of the face takes on an unfavorably
aged appearance, a brow lift (or “forehead lift”) can rejuvenate the
area to reverse the unpleasant effects. How does it work? First, patients
should know that these wrinkles and creases are caused by the forehead
and brow tissue, in the event that it sags over the upper eyelid to
the extent that the eyelashes and eyebrows meet.
These corrugations, along with frown lines between the eyes, become fixed over time. The result is a tired, sad, or angry-looking facial expression. With the help of our Los Angeles cosmetic surgery professional, Dr. Taylor, brow lift/forehead lift surgery can correct that.
In short, a brow lift can:
- Raise drooping eyebrows
- Diminish wrinkles
- Smooth out forehead creases
…To create a more pleasant, youthful appearance.
How is a brow lift performed?
As stated, a brow lift alters or removes the tissues that lead to an aged appearance on the top portion of the face. Normally, Dr. Taylor utilizes an endoscopic brow lifting method. This technique involves multiple, tiny incisions behind the hairline. The ear-to-ear incision method, which poses greater risks, is typically not used at our Los Angeles plastic surgery practice.
In most cases, the procedure lasts one to two hours, and is performed under twilight or general anesthesia on an outpatient basis.
