Dr. Stoker Explains
Also known as a forehead lift, a brow lift can help you project the youthful vitality you feel inside by improving the overall appearance of your forehead and eyelids. When performed by a highly skilled plastic surgeon, a brow lift can:
- Minimize creases on the forehead and the bridge of the nose
- Reduce frown lines between the eyebrows
- Reposition a sagging brow that droops over the upper eyelids
- Raise the eyebrows to give a more alert appearance to the eyes
Coronal brow lift:This technique is ideal for patients who want to raise the entire brow line. Also known as the "headband incision," it involves removing skin from the hair-covered portion of the scalp. I place an incision from ear to ear, lift the forehead and remove the excess skin from the scalp. A coronal brow lift is not as common as it used to be, but it still can be the most effective way to meet the needs of some patients.
Endoscopic brow lift:With this technique, I place small incisions behind the hairline. Using a tiny camera and special instruments, I remove or tighten the muscles that are responsible for wrinkles, frown lines and sagging eyebrows. Endoscopic brow lifts are particularly beneficial for younger patients who do not need removal of excess skin.
Lateral brow lift:A lateral brow lift addresses sagging on the outer portion of the eyebrow. With this technique, I place small incisions in the hairline at the temples to remove excess skin and lift the outer corners of the forehead. Unlike a coronal brow lift, a lateral brow lift does not raise the middle of the brow. It does, however, improve the appearance of crow's feet. A lateral brow lift may be the best option for patients who are mainly concerned with drooping at the sides of the eyebrows.
A board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience, Dr. Stoker achieves remarkable results in a caring, compassionate atmosphere.
If your friends often say you appear tired, older or even angry, you may benefit from a brow lift. Los Angeles patients are generally between the ages of 40 and 70. Patients who smoke should stop before surgery.
You may experience mild discomfort, but it is easily managed with mild pain medication. Improvement is seen immediately, but maximum results are visible several months after surgery when all of the swelling is resolved.
In my experience, risks from brow lift surgery have been extremely rare. Possible complications include bleeding, infection, nerve damage or hair changes.
