Forehead / Browlift Surgery in Newport Beach California

Forehead lift surgery, also known as a brow lift, is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to improve the appearance of the forehead and eyebrows. It is often used to correct signs of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging skin, and can be used to address a variety of concerns, including a heavy or hooded brow, deep wrinkles across the forehead, and drooping eyebrows.

There are several different techniques that can be used for a forehead lift, and the specific approach will depend on the needs and goals of the patient. Some common techniques include the traditional forehead lift, which involves making an incision along the hairline and lifting the skin and underlying tissues to correct sagging and wrinkles; the endoscopic forehead lift, which involves making small incisions and using an endoscope to lift the skin and tissues; and the temporal lift, which focuses on the outer corners of the brow and can be done through small incisions in the hairline or through the temples.

Forehead lift surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and takes several hours to complete. During the procedure, the surgeon will make the necessary incisions and lift the skin and underlying tissues to achieve the desired result. The incisions are then closed with sutures or staples.

After the surgery, the patient will typically have a bandage in place to protect the incisions and support the forehead. There may be swelling and bruising around the eyes and forehead, and the patient may experience some discomfort and pain. Pain medication will be prescribed to help manage these symptoms. It is important for the patient to follow the surgeon’s instructions for caring for the incisions and protecting the forehead from injury during the recovery period.

While forehead lift surgery can produce dramatic improvements in the appearance of the forehead and eyebrows, it is important to note that it is a major surgical procedure and carries with it certain risks and complications. These may include infection, scarring, changes in skin sensation, and changes in the position of the eyebrows. It is also important to understand that forehead lift surgery does not stop the aging process and the effects of the procedure may eventually fade over time.

Overall, forehead lift surgery can be a useful tool for improving the appearance of the forehead and eyebrows and correcting signs of aging. However, it is not for everyone and it is important for patients to have realistic expectations about the results of the procedure. It is also important for patients to carefully consider their motivations for undergoing forehead lift surgery and to have a thorough understanding of the potential risks and complications.
