Rejuvenate Your Upper Facial Appearance With a Brow Lift in Thousand Oaks

Getting older comes with many frustrating changes, many of which will affect your facial appearance. One common example is the sagging of the brow, which can be caused by genetics, gravity, and weakening facial muscles. When your brow starts to sag, it can disrupt your facial balance and cause you to look perpetually tired or angry. At Elevate Plastic Surgery, we offer a procedure called a brow lift that can reduce these issues and revitalize your upper face.

What Is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to lift and rejuvenate the forehead, eyebrows, and upper eyelids. The procedure involves the removal of excess skin and tissue from the forehead and the lifting of the eyebrows to a more youthful, symmetrical position.

A brow lift can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead, improve the position of the eyebrows, and create a more youthful and refreshed appearance. It can also help to improve vision by lifting sagging eyebrows that may be obstructing the upper eyelids.

Benefits of a Brow Lift

A brow lift performed by Dr. Rahgozar is a powerful procedure that can provide all of the following benefits:

  • More youthful brow position
  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improved eyebrow symmetry
  • Improved field of vision
  • Improved facial harmony
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Long-lasting, natural-looking results

What to Expect During Your Brow Lift Surgery

The first step of the brow lift process will be to sit down for a consultation with Dr. Rahgozar to discuss your goals and expectations as well as any concerns you may have regarding the procedure. Dr. Rahgozar will also examine your upper face to determine the best approach for your brow lift and curate a personalized treatment plan. Your brow lift procedure will likely be performed as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia, which will keep you peacefully asleep throughout the surgery.

Dr. Rahgozar will make incisions either at or behind your hairline, depending on the technique being used. The skin of your forehead will be lifted and tightened, and any excess skin will be removed. The doctor will then close the incision(s) with sutures and bandage the treatment area.

Before you head home after the procedure, you’ll need to be monitored for a couple of hours in the recovery room. You can then have a friend or family member drive you home.

Recovery After a Brow Lift Procedure

After a brow lift, you may have mild discomfort, swelling, or bruising in the treated area. However, most patients find that these symptoms are mild and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

You can also reduce your swelling by sleeping with your head elevated for a week or two after the procedure. You can expect to need approximately one to two weeks of rest at home before returning to work and getting back to your normal routine. During this period, you can help the healing process along by staying hydrated, getting plenty of sleep, and taking light walks around the house. You’ll also want to refrain from strenuous physical activity for at least three to four weeks.

To be an ideal candidate for a brow lift, it’s important that you’re in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the procedure. Additionally, you should be a non-smoker and not be currently pregnant or breastfeeding.

What are the different brow lift techniques?

There are three main brow lift techniques available: endoscopic brow lift, coronal brow lift, and temporal brow lift. The endoscopic brow lift involves making small incisions in the scalp and using a tiny camera called an endoscope to lift and reposition the brow. The coronal brow lift involves making an incision across the scalp from ear to ear and lifting the brow through that incision. The temporal brow lift involves making an incision in the temple area and lifting the outer part of the brow. During your consultation with Dr. Rahgozar, he will evaluate your situation to help you determine which brow lift method will be best suited to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

How long will the results of a brow lift last?

On average, the results of a brow lift can last anywhere from five to 10 years, depending on the type of surgery performed and the individual patient. Factors such as aging, sun exposure, and smoking can all affect the longevity of your results.

How long does a brow lift take?

The length of time it takes to perform a brow lift can vary depending on which technique is used. An endoscopic brow lift typically takes one to two hours, while coronal and temporal brow lifts can take up to three hours.
