Brow Lift

A brow lift, or a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure to rejuvenate the upper face by addressing sagging or drooping eyebrows and forehead skin. This can provide a more youthful appearance by lifting and tightening the brow area, resulting in a refreshed look.

Revitalize The Upper Face & Forehead

A brow lift, or forehead lift, is a cosmetic surgery to revitalize the upper face. It addresses common signs of aging, like sagging eyebrows and forehead wrinkles. During the surgery, Dr. Fahradyan carefully lifts and tightens the forehead skin and underlying tissues to create a more youthful, refreshed look. Brow lifts can be performed using various techniques, including traditional open surgery or minimally invasive endoscopic methods — Dr. Fahradyan will determine the appropriate approach after an evaluation.

Brow Lift FAQs

How does a brow lift work?

A brow lift reverses the effects of aging on the upper face. During the procedure, Dr. Fahradyan makes incisions, typically hidden within the hairline or along natural creases of the forehead, to access the underlying tissues. He carefully repositions and lifts the forehead skin and muscles to correct sagging eyebrows and minimize forehead wrinkles.

What are the brow lift techniques?

Brow lift techniques generally fall into two categories: traditional and minimally invasive. Traditional techniques involve longer incisions for direct tissue manipulation, while minimally invasive methods, often using an endoscope, require smaller incisions and result in quicker recovery. Dr. Fahradyan will select the technique based on your specific needs and goals.

How long is the recovery period for a brow lift?

Recovery times can vary but typically range from one to two weeks for most patients. Swelling and bruising may persist for several weeks and subside gradually.

Will I have visible scars after a brow lift?

Scarring is usually minimal and strategically placed within the hairline or along the natural creases of the forehead. Over time, the scars become less noticeable.

Is a brow lift permanent?

While a brow lift provides long-lasting results, the natural aging process continues. The effects can last for years, but some degree of gradual aging may eventually reoccur.

Can a brow lift be combined with other cosmetic procedures?

Yes, many patients combine a brow lift with procedures like eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or facelifts for comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
