What is a Brow Lift?

Spread the love

What is a Brow Lift?Aging and other factors can cause the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead and between the brows. This condition can be corrected with a brow lift cosmetic surgery to rejuvenate the upper face and make the forehead appear more youthful. The procedure is also known as forehead lift, and is a less invasive option for people who may not be ready for a full facelift.

Sometimes brow lift may be combined with eyelid lift surgery to create more harmonious results. The surgeon will educate the patient about brow lift during the initial consultation and help them make the right decision. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim provides brow lift to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding communities and towns in this part of SoCal.

 

Candidacy

People who are unhappy with the emergence of conspicuous wrinkles and lines on the forehead and the area right between the eyes may benefit from a brow lift. If the stationary expression in this area makes a person look angry, tired or worried, brow lift can improve the expression.

Candidates who suffer from both furrowing brows and droopy eyelids may benefit more from a combination of brow lift and eyelid lift cosmetic surgery. On the other hand, if the candidate has only minor wrinkles and fine lines between the brows, they may sometimes choose only Botox as a temporary, non-surgical alternative to brow lift.

 

What does Brow Lift Achieve?

The brow lift surgery is different from an eyelid lift, which involves removal of excess skin from the eyelids. In case of brow lift, the goal is to reposition the brow in order to create a more youthful and alert upper face look and open the entire eye area.

With a brow lift, the surgeon will be able to subtly raise the forehead skin, effectively eliminating the horizontal creases and forehead sagging that may have occurred from years of facial expressions and aging. Just a simple reshaping of the brow skin can help achieve a more youthful look for the entire face. More dramatic results can be achieved when a brow lift is combined with an eyelid lift.

 

Procedure

Following anesthesia, Dr. Kim will place small incisions in the hairline to keep the subsequent scarring inconspicuous. He will then insert an endoscope through the incision to view the underlying structures on a screen. This will enable him to make the modifications in a minimally invasive way.

The remarkable and sagacious Dr. Kim will gently lift the drooping forehead muscles and tightens the muscles that are pulling the brow downward. Unlike a facelift, the brow lift will not involve pulling of the skin. However, if excess skin is present, Dr. Kim will excise it to create a smooth forehead and brow appearance.

Dr. Kim performs a brow lift procedure in a highly precise and customized manner. This will ensure that no over-tightening or lifting of the muscles takes place and the patient does not end up with a surprised look on the face. The reliable and prolific plastic surgeon Dr. Kim receives patients from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and nearby areas.
