What Is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure that rejuvenates the forehead and brow area by addressing sagging brows, deep forehead lines, and wrinkles. Through carefully placed incisions, excess skin is removed, and the underlying muscles are tightened to elevate the brows and restore a more youthful appearance to the upper face. This procedure can also correct asymmetry and create a smoother, more refreshed forehead contour, helping patients achieve a naturally rejuvenated look.

Is a Brow Lift Right for Me?

A brow lift may suit individuals experiencing sagging brows, deep forehead wrinkles, or asymmetry in the brow area, leading to a tired or aged appearance. Ideal candidates often seek to rejuvenate their upper face, enhance facial symmetry, and achieve a more youthful, refreshed look. A brow lift could benefit you if you're seeking a lasting solution beyond what dermal fillers can offer. If you're considering a brow lift in the Pasadena & Glendale, CA area, please consult Dr. Panossian. During your consultation, he will assess your facial anatomy, discuss your aesthetic goals, and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan tailored to your needs. You can expect a thorough evaluation, an opportunity to ask questions, and a personalized approach to address your concerns and achieve optimal results.

What to Expect The Brow Lift Procedure

During a brow lift procedure with Dr. Panossian, anesthesia is administered to ensure your comfort throughout the surgery. The technique employed may vary depending on your unique facial anatomy and desired outcome. Typically, discreet incisions are made either along the hairline or within the natural creases of the forehead to access the underlying tissues. Dr. Panossian then carefully lifts and repositions the skin and underlying tissues of the forehead and brow area to address concerns such as drooping brows, forehead wrinkles, and asymmetry. He restores a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance to the upper face by tightening the muscles and removing excess skin.

Additionally, Dr. Panossian pays special attention to preserving the integrity of facial nerves, ensuring facial expressions and sensations remain intact. The duration of the procedure can vary based on the extent of correction needed, but it typically takes several hours to complete. Throughout the surgery, Dr. Panossian utilizes advanced techniques and his expertise in facial anatomy to achieve natural-looking and long-lasting results tailored to your aesthetic goals. Depending on individual needs, Dr. Panossian may employ various advanced brow lift techniques, such as the endoscopic brow lift or the coronal brow lift, chosen based on factors like skin type, degree of lift required, and individual facial structure, ensuring optimal results that enhance the patient's natural beauty.

Brow Lift Recovery

Following a brow lift procedure with Dr. Panossian, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area, which is normal and typically resolves within a few weeks. To assist with the healing process, Dr. Panossian may utilize a light head wrap post-surgery, and in some cases, a small, thin drain tube may be used to remove fluid that might accumulate. Dr. Panossian typically removes any drain tubes within 24 hours in the office, allowing patients to shower with shampoo and water. Care should be taken not to rub on the forehead or the areas of the incisions within the scalp during this time. Regarding activity restrictions, patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities, exercise, and heavy lifting during the initial recovery period, similar to the precautions taken after a facelift. The swelling usually subsides within 10-14 days, and most patients can return to work within 7-10 days following surgery. Dr. Panossian may prescribe pain medications ahead of time, and sometimes antibiotics, to manage any discomfort and minimize the risk of infection. If bruising persists, patients may use makeup to conceal it. While initial results may be visible shortly after the procedure, the full effects of the brow lift will become more apparent as swelling subsides and the tissues settle into their new position. Patients should continue to follow postoperative instructions provided by Dr. Panossian, including caring for the incision sites and attending follow-up appointments as scheduled. It's important to note that the incisions may sometimes be numb or sensitive for several weeks post-surgery. Still, with proper care and adherence to post-procedure guidance, patients can enjoy a smoother, more youthful appearance and long-lasting results.
