As you age, your skin loses laxity and slows its collagen production, resulting in loose, sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. For some, significant skin laxity on the upper face, specifically the forehead, could result in sagging or asymmetrical eyebrows. In that case, a brow lift in West Hills is a good option for long-term improvement of aging signs and cosmetic concerns on the forehead.
After undergoing the procedure from skilled facial plastic surgeon Dr. Yaghoubian, eyebrows in a higher position can make your facial appearance look more youthful and alert. In addition, a brow lift may be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as a facelift or eyelid surgery. Schedule a brow lift consultation at AESTHETICA LA to hear more about the benefits and whether you are an ideal candidate.
Primarily, brow lift procedures in West Hills aim to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin on the upper face. For example, the surgery could reduce wrinkles between the eyes and around the bridge of the nose. In addition, horizontal lines across the forehead and wrinkles between the eyebrows, known as frown lines, could be reduced after surgery.
Another popular reason for brow lift surgery is to reduce eyebrow sagging, mainly if the eyebrows or skin affects the upper eyelids. In addition, for some individuals, raising their eyebrow placement with a brow lift may relieve vision impairments that occur due to excess skin.
Furthermore, since lower eyebrows can make someone look tired, sad, or angry, the surgery could reduce this concern. After making necessary corrections, the goal of a brow lift is to place the eyebrows in a higher position to rejuvenate a patient’s facial appearance.
There are three approaches to removing excess, sagging skin, and lifting the eyebrows placement as part of brow lift surgery: the coronal lift, the hairline lift, and the endoscopic lift.
A coronal brow lift approach uses an incision from ear to ear behind the hairline to lift the forehead into a higher position. Since this approach overlaps with scalp tissue, the excess part is removed before attaching the remaining scalp in its new placement. However, patients at higher risk for hair loss or who have high hairlines are not ideal for this kind of approach.
For patients with higher or receding hairlines, a hairline brow lift is the best choice as the surgery removes skin from the forehead instead of the scalp. This approach to a brow lift in West Hills uses an incision between the start of the hairline and the top of the forehead, ensuring that the hairline does not pull back.
Endoscopic brow lifts use several tiny incisions behind a patient’s hairline to insert thin tubes, allowing Dr. Yaghoubian to look at underlying tissue and muscle. From there, forehead tissue undergoes repositioning in order to raise eyebrow placement. Afterward, the sutures secure the facial muscles into their new positions and close the incisions within the hairline.
Although you might expect to see more wrinkles as you grow older, sagging eyebrows may be a surprising and unwelcome additional change. If you would like to reverse this development, a brow lift in West Hills that uses any of the three approaches is the ideal choice for higher eyebrow placement, wrinkle reduction, and possible vision improvements. After several weeks of recovery, the skin around your eyes, eyebrows, and forehead could look lifted, tighter, and smoother.
