Aging is a natural process, and the earliest signs of aging often show up where most of our facial expressions occur: on the forehead and around the eyes. A brow lift is a procedure that reduces horizontal wrinkling along the forehead, wrinkles between the eyes, frown lines, and sagging brows. Los Angeles surgeon Dr. Kerendian can use this procedure to give you a more youthful, wide-awake appearance and reduce many of the most common signs of early aging.
Dr. Kerendian can use a brow lift to tighten the soft tissues of the upper third of your face, give you a more youthful appearance, and reverse the effects of gravity. Several methods are available, and he will take the time to ensure the incisions are placed in a discreet location for the most attractive results possible.
You might be a candidate for a brow lift if you have:
• A sad, tired, or angry appearance regardless of your actual mood due to sagging or drooping eyebrows
• Deep creases across your forehead
• Frown lines between your eyebrows
• Furrows along the bridge of your nose
• Fatty tissue or extra skin that droops over your eyes
• Obscured eyelids due to excess tissues that make it difficult or impossible to apply makeup
The procedure can reposition the sagging tissues and raise them to a more youthful position. With your brow lifted, you can look more awake, happier, open and approachable. The procedure can be performed alone, or in conjunction with blepharoplasty or other cosmetic procedures. Open and endoscopic procedures are available and are typically chosen based on the degree of drooping and which will yield the most desirable cosmetic results.
A brow lift can take about two hours, and you will usually be able to go home after the procedure. Swelling and bruising can occur after the procedure, but these are self-limiting and should resolve quickly. You will need to keep your head elevated for a period. Dr. Kerendian will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to help you recover comfortably and heal with less risk of complications.
