Brighten Up Your Face with a Brow Lift

As we age, we undergo many changes, including those that are visible on the face. One such change is the development of wrinkles and creases between the eyes and across the forehead. Additionally, gravity causes the skin on the forehead to sag, pulling down on the brow area and potentially impacting vision. These changes can make some look older and less energetic. A brow lift can correct these changes by smoothing, tightening, and lifting the skin on the forehead. This can brighten up your face, improve your vision, and give you a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

At Privé Beverly Hills, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Catherine Chang, is a brow lift specialist. With her extensive knowledge of facial anatomy and her keen eye for aesthetics, she will create a personalized treatment plan tailored for your aesthetic goals.

What is a brow lift?

A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that aims to raise and reshape the eyebrows and forehead area. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, leading to the formation of wrinkles, frown lines, and drooping eyebrows. A brow lift can effectively reduce the appearance of these signs of aging, resulting in a more youthful and alert appearance. The brow lift procedure involves removing excess skin and reshaping the muscles and tissues of the forehead and eyebrow area, resulting in a more refreshed and youthful appearance.

Benefits of undergoing a Brow Lift:

Patients who undergo a brow lift experience numerous benefits, including a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, lifted eyebrows, and a boost in self-confidence.

  • Reduced appearance of wrinkles: As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, leading to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. A brow lift can smooth out these wrinkles and provide a more youthful appearance.
  • Lifted eyebrows: Drooping eyebrows can make you look tired and angry, even when you’re not. A brow lift can lift and reshape the eyebrows, giving you a refreshed and alert look.
  • Improved vision: Sagging skin around the forehead and eyebrows can obstruct your vision. A brow lift can remove excess skin and open up your eye area, improving your vision and making you look more alert.
  • Boost in self-confidence: A brow lift can give you a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance, boosting your self-confidence and making you feel more comfortable in your own skin.

Brow Lift Recovery

After your brow lift surgery, your forehead may be swollen and bruised for several days, so it’s important to prepare by having painkillers and ice packs on hand. Typically, any bandages can be removed within two to three days, and sutures will be taken out after about a week. As your incisions heal, any scars will be concealed behind your hairline. While complete recovery from brow lift surgery can take a few weeks, most patients are able to return to their normal activities within 7-10 days.
