Los Angeles Brow Lift

The brow line and forehead is one of the most prominent features of the face. Over time the brow and forehead droops and lacks elasticity due to aging, sun damage and other environmental and dietary factors. Los Angeles Brow Lift Surgery can easily and effectively undo the early signs of aging and uncover a more youthful appearance.

The use of muscles of the forehead can also cause wrinkles to form. Together, this can give not only a tired, but also a more stern or saddened appearance.  The descent of the forehead can also cause excess skin in the upper eyelid to sag which can affect vision.

Los Angeles Brow Lift Surgery | Dr. Henry Chen, MD

A brow lift will raise the eyebrows back to their normal position and will also relieve deep creases that may have formed, resulting in a more youthful appearance.  The procedure is usually performed with small incisions hidden behind the hairline in a minimally invasive manner.  Brow lifts are commonly performed in conjunction with blepharoplasty as well as facelift.

Is a Brow Lift Right for You?

Los Angeles Brow LiftIs the appearance of your brow causing you to appear tired or unintentionally angry? If you answered ‘yes’ to this question you may be a good candidate for a Brow Lift in Los Angeles. It is important to point out that a brow lift will not address wrinkles or sagging in outer areas of the face, so a realistic outcome is needed, but a Brow Lift can help diminish the evidence of aging around the brow line.

Most brow lift patients range in age from their 40s to their 60s, though the procedure can be performed for those younger or older than this age range. Those who benefit from Dr. Chen’s Los Angeles Brow Lift are those in good physical and mental health that maintain realistic expectations.

What to Expect

There are three different approaches to Los Angeles Brow Lift Surgery. Dr. Chen will assess each patient’s individual needs and desired outcome before deciding how to proceed. Your Brow Lift Surgeon will take into consideration age, overall health, degree of vision obstruction (if any), as well as the structure of the forehead and the position of the natural hairline. There are three common techniques Dr. Henry Chen uses for his brow lifts at his clinic in Beverly Hills:

  • Endoscopic brow lift: An endoscopic brow lift is the most common for cosmetic purposes, requires Dr. Chen to place four small incisions in the hairline. An endoscope (small surgical camera) is inserted through the incisions and is used to release the brow from the underlying bone and suspend it with sutures. After the underlying tissue has been repositioned and trimmed, the four small incisions are then sutured or clamped closed.
  • Mid-forehead Brow Lift: Dr. Chen will remove a small area of excess skin on the forehead in order to realign the remaining skin. Incisions are hidden within existing forehead wrinkles, and designed to disappear after healing. This procedure works best on patients with a long brow line.
  • Pretrichial Brow Lift: This is when Brow Lift Surgeon, Dr. Chen, elevates the brow and forehead area through an incision which is placed just inside the hairline. The brow is suspended with internal sutures, and excess skin is removed for a smooth outer appearance.
Recovery and Results

After the surgery, a dressing will be applied to any larger incisions. Swelling and bruising are both very common following a brow lift. Using cold compresses and/or icepacks and keeping the head elevated in the evening while you sleep assist in the healing process. Healing times of your Brow Lift may vary depending on the patient. Endoscopic brow lift surgery in Los Angeles often has a faster healing time because it is less invasive.

Combine your Brow Lift with Other Procedures for Maximum Results

A brow lift may be combined with other procedures in order to achieve a more youthful appearance. Eyelid surgery may be included along with a brow lift to give the entire upper half of the face a refreshed look. To diminish signs of aging in the rest of the face and neck, a facelift also may be indicated. For less advanced aging treatment, laser skin resurfacing and other nonsurgical cosmetic procedures may be an option.
