Forehead wrinkles and increasing heaviness of the eyebrows are some of the unwelcome signs of aging that begin appearing on our faces in our late 30’s and early 40’s. These developments can make you appear tired, angry or sad to the outside world when this is not how you actually feel.
A well-executed brow lift can help Beverly Hills patients rejuvenate your forehead, brows and eyes so that you look younger and more refreshed without appearing as if you have had any surgery.
The Brow Lift Procedure With Dr. Nima
During your initial consultation, in addition to getting your medical history including any risk factors, Dr. Nima will take the time to discuss your issues, concerns and set reasonable expectations for any procedure. At this time, he will also examine your face with a keen, artful eye as well as take measurements. We will also take before photos for your records.
For your comfort, we perform a brow lift using IV sedation anesthesia. Dr. Nima commences the procedure by placing precise, small incisions in the scalp, just behind your hairline. He carefully inserts an endoscope (a thin tube with a camera) through the incisions, allowing him to see underneath the skin via video image. Dr. Nima then skillfully releases skin and soft tissue from the brow bone, gently lifting and securing them for long-lasting results.
A bandage may be applied to minimize post-surgical swelling and bruising. The less invasive form of lift combined with Dr. Nima’s surgical skill reduces your recovery time to about 1 week.
Non-surgical Brow lift
Of course, for a variety of reasons, not every Beverly Hills patient is a candidate for surgery. In such cases, Dr. Nima has mastered cutting-edge alternatives. By way of example, skillfully and carefully targeted botox and dermal filler injections have helped many. As always, though, not every individual is an optimal candidate for these procedures. One’s eligibility will be determined during the initial exams and consultations. Assuming, however, that Dr. Nima’s exam clears a patient for a non-surgical procedure and that a patient is comfortable with this alternative, the results they attain are not short lived. Improvements that last from six to twelve months are the norm.
Following your brow lift, maintaining great skin will highlight your results, and keep you looking refreshed and youthful. We highly encourage you to speak with our Aesthetician about the best products to keep your skin taught and moisturized. Also, we may recommend that you sustain your rejuvenated look with a program of periodic injectable treatments down the road.
Brow Lift Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best treatment option for Forehead Wrinkles?
Brow lift surgery is one of the most effective treatments for forehead wrinkles. When performed by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, brow lift surgery can reduce forehead wrinkles in a natural-looking way and produce long-lasting results that rival those produced by most non-surgical treatments. Brow lift surgery in Beverly Hills can be performed as a minimally-invasive procedure that results in smaller incisions, less scarring, and minimal downtime.
Forehead wrinkles can also be treated using one or more non-surgical cosmetic procedures. Those who do not qualify for brow lift surgery can consult with their plastic surgeons to choose non-surgical procedures like Botox®, dermal fillers, and microneedling that are nearly as effective at smoothing forehead wrinkles as brow lift surgery.
What are the cosmetic benefits of a Brow Lift versus other forehead treatments?
Brow lift surgery offers long-lasting cosmetic benefits that include reduced fine lines and wrinkles, a rejuvenated, youthful appearance, and a more relaxed expression. Brow lift surgery can also remove excess skin contributing to forehead wrinkles and elevate the brow line to help patients look more refreshed.
Brow lift surgery in Beverly Hills does far more than just smooth out forehead wrinkles and offers additional cosmetic benefits of improving the appearance of crow’s feet wrinkles, reducing the appearance of sagging upper eyelids, and restoring an arch and youthful shape to the eyebrows. This cosmetic procedure can be personalized for each individual patient to ensure results are natural and aesthetically pleasing.
What is the ideal age to get a Brow Lift?
Brow lift surgery is not a one-size-fits-all procedure—meaning anyone with forehead wrinkles, and heavy, drooping eyebrows or upper eyelids may be ideal candidates for this cosmetic procedure regardless of age. Ideal candidates for brow lift surgery are those who are in good physical health, don’t smoke, and who have a positive outlook and realistic goals about their physical appearance. People of any age who want to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on their foreheads and around their eyes can schedule a consultation to learn if they are ideal candidates for brow lift surgery.
What are the different types of Brow Lift procedures?
Forehead wrinkles can be effectively treated using brow lift surgery and non-surgical brow lift procedures, such as Botox®, Dysport®, and dermal filler injections. Botox® and Dysport® help smooth out horizontal forehead lines caused by lifting the eyebrows and other natural facial expressions. Restylane, Belotero, and Juvederm are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that can fill forehead wrinkles while also moisturizing the skin to create a more natural, youthful-looking appearance. Results from Botox® Xeomin® and Dysport® typically last about three months, while results from dermal fillers can last anywhere between six and 24 months.
Other effective treatments for forehead wrinkles in Beverly Hills include microneedling, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels. Microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production to smooth out forehead wrinkles, while microdermabrasion and chemical peels help remove outer layers of dead skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
How long will results of Brow Lift surgery last?
Brow lift surgery in Beverly Hills offers long-lasting results for forehead wrinkles and fine lines, while other forehead treatments like injectables and dermal fillers require patients to revisit the clinic one or more times per year to maintain their results. Results from brow lift surgery can last up to several years or a lifetime, as long as patients practice healthy lifestyle behaviors that help prolong and maintain results. Wearing sunscreen every day, eating highly nutritious foods, staying physically active, limiting alcohol intake, and avoiding tobacco are just some healthy practices that can prolong the results of brow lift surgery.
