BROW LIFT (FOREHEAD LIFT)
Two of the most unwelcome aspects of the natural aging process are the deepening of lines across the forehead and between the eyes, and the loss of facial skin elasticity, which can cause an individual to appear tired, aged, or chronically unhappy. These issues are magnified by the formation of lateral hooding (folds) of skin between the eyelid and eyebrow, near the outer corners of the eyes. Fortunately, brow lift surgery can correct these aesthetic problems, and has a rejuvenating impact on the appearance of the entire face.
Brow lift surgery can effectively minimize the appearance of frown lines, diminish forehead creases, correct any upper eyelid hooding, and raise the eyebrows to a more youthful position. For a full facial rejuvenation, browlift surgery can be performed in conjunction with other cosmetic facial procedures, such as eyelid surgery, facelift surgery, and skin resurfacing treatments. Because of the high level of precision and expertise brow lift surgery requires, it should be performed by a skillful, board certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. J. Timothy Katzen. Dr. Katzen takes pride in keeping abreast of the latest advances in the field of cosmetic facial surgery, and has helped many patients revitalize their facial appearance with brow lift surgery at his private practice in Beverly Hills, California.
BROW LIFT PROCEDURE AND RECOVERY
Dr. Katzen is pleased to offer three different options for browlift procedures:
- Temporal Brow Lift
- Coronal Brow Lift
- Endoscopic Brow Lift
During your initial consultation, Dr. Katzen will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each brow lift option, and will help you to choose the procedure that will produce optimal results and will best help you to achieve your surgical goals. After your browlift surgery, you will wear a soft wrap around your head for 2-4 days, and your surgical staples or sutures will be removed approximately seven days later. Coronal browlifts generally cause more post-surgical swelling and bruising, and necessitate longer recover periods than the endoscopic and temporal procedures. You may also experience temporary post-surgical numbness or itching following a coronal brow lift. Elevating your head will help to reduce any bruising or swelling, and you will be able to gradually resume physical activity 2-3 weeks after surgery.
Dr. Katzen’s practice is built on the foundational principle of surgical customization, meaning that as a patient, you will receive a unique treatment plan, tailored to reflect your specific aesthetic preferences, and designed to bring your surgical goals to fruition. Dr. Katzen and his professional staff have created a warm, welcoming office environment, where you will feel secure and comfortable throughout your brow lift experience.
Dr. Katzen and his professional team understand the importance of well-informed patients, and will take the time to thoroughly explain your brow lift surgery procedural details and options.
