Brow Lift FAQ’s

Posted On 09/18/2017 by Dr. Christopher Zoumalan

Brow Lift

Plastic surgery is more accessible now than it ever was. Women and men alike are considering various procedures to help them achieve and keep their youthful glow. One of the most popular is a brow lift, also known as a forehead lift. A brow lift surgery in Beverly Hills continues to set the standard for cosmetic facial surgery around the world.

What does a brow lift accomplish?

Dr. Zoumalan’s brow lift accomplishes four major goals, all of which promote a refreshed appearance and improved self-confidence:

● Reduces the wrinkles that develop across the forehead, as well as the wrinkles that happen on the bridge of the nose and between the eyes.
● Improves what are known as the frown lines that happen in between the eye brows.
● Raises sagging brows.
● Puts the eyebrows in a more youthful position.
● Can help improve the excess upper eyelid skin that occurs as a result of sagging brows

Who is a suitable candidate for a brow lift?

Some of the most common complaints for those seeking this type of procedure include:

● Significant sagging of the outside of the eyebrows.
● The center of the eyebrow hangs down over the eye.
● Noticeable frown lines between the eyes.
● Inability to apply makeup to the upper eyelid because the surface area is obscured by drooping tissue because of sagging brows.
● Excess skin above the upper eyelid.

What types of brow lifts are available to me?

If you suffer from brow ptosis, otherwise known as “droopy brows,” there are several brow lift options to consider depending on the severity. Some patients only require a lift of 1-2 mm, while others require a bit more work and might even combine the brow lift with another procedure, such as an upper eyelid blepharoplasty.

One of the most common procedures is the endoscopic brow lift. With an endoscopic lift, Dr. Zoumalan will make a few small incisions in the scalp, and then using a camera to make the right adjustments, elevate the brow to a higher position, anywhere from 3-5mm. Because the incisions are small, this procedure is considered less invasive and the recovery time is shorter.

Another type of lift is the temporal or lateral brow lift. This procedure is ideal for patients who don’t want their entire forehead and brows lifted but just the lateral portion of the brow to allow for a more natural brow contour. The brow contour can change with age and is typically great for patients who only want a lift of a few millimeters.

For those only looking for a lift of 1-2 millimeters, a brow pexy may be desirable. However, for those with severe brow ptosis, a direct brow lift may be necessary. Dr. Zoumalan performs a minimally invasive direct brow lift to help improve the brow position. The incision is carefully placed just above the eyebrow hair so that the scar heals very well and appears like a fine wrinkle.
