Brow + Forehead Lift
- With age, the eyebrow shape, position, and tilt slope downward giving the eyes a fatigued or sad appearance. Very low positioned eyebrows contribute to vision obstruction.
- Brow lift is a permanent solution to open the eyes, to eliminate the appearance of sadness or fatigue, and to reduce frown lines permanently.
- Dr. Rad performs eyebrow lifts using 3 different approaches depending on the resting position of the brows: Endoscopic, Short Incision, and Coronal.
- If the brow is in good position, then an Upper Blepharoplasty can add balance and harmony of the eye area.
- Botox can give the illusion of a brow lift by weakening adjacent areas of the forehead.
- Professional Makeup Artistry involves brow shaping techniques to accentuate brow contour.
How It’s Done
- The Endoscopic approach involves small incisions in the hair and, with the guidance of a camera inserted beneath the brow tissue, the forehead and brows are elevated and secured to a new position.
- The Short Incision approach involves 3 to 5 inch incisions along the hairline through which the skin is elevated and the lateral eyebrows are lifted.
- The Coronal approach involves a long incision from temple to temple through which the entire forehead is elevated.
- In Dr. Rad’s hands, brow lift surgery is very safe and is done under light general anesthesia delivered by a Board Certified Anesthesiologist in an accredited surgery center.
- Medical clearance by your Primary Care Physician prior to surgery is needed.
What to Expect
- Recovery involves minor bruising and swelling and lasts 1 to 2 weeks, depending on the extent of surgery.
- Return back to work in 1-3 weeks, depending on the speed of healing, is normal.
