Brow Lift

Enhance the Upper Face

Aging is a frustrating, yet inevitable process that causes many physical changes. As we get older, the skin loses elasticity, often causing the eyebrows to move downward, closer to the eyes. As well, the distance between the eyebrows and the eyelashes tends to become shorter. The Zelken Institute in Newport Beach (near Orange County) offers brow lifts to improve signs of aging in the face.

What Is A Brow Lift?

A brow lift is a type of cosmetic procedure that increases the elasticity in the upper facial region. This will cause the forehead and brow tissue to be raised. As a final result, the forehead, eyebrows and areas surrounding the eyes will be lifted and raised back to their original position. In addition to this, frown lines and wrinkles will be significantly improved.

The Procedure

First, the patient meets with Dr. Zelken to discuss the details of the procedure and to go over his or her medical history and any additional questions that might arise. Dr. Zelken will then confirm that the patient is in fact an ideal candidate for a brow lift.

During the brow lift, anesthetic is used to ensure no pain is felt. The hair is then parted and several small incisions are made along the hairline. At this point, a very small endoscope is inserted gently into one of the incisions. This is done so that the surgeon is able to see the muscles and tissue cells that are beneath the surface of the skin. The forehead skin is then carefully lifted, as Dr. Zelken repairs the muscles and tissues. This is when the eyebrows are lifted higher onto the forehead, producing a more relaxed and comfortable look for the patient. After the brow lift is finished, Dr. Zelken closes with stitches and washes the area. The stitches are not noticeable from underneath the hairline.

Who is a good candidate for a brow lift?

Age is not a factor in regards to being a good candidate. The best candidates have facial features such as heavy frown lines, or low hanging eyebrows. Patients with these types of cosmetic concerns will see the biggest difference after the procedure.

When can I return to work following a brow lift?

The most important thing following a procedure like this is to take it easy. Do not exert yourself unnecessarily. Many patients will return to work approximately 10-14 days after the procedure has been completed.

Will a brow lift reduce wrinkles?

A brow lift will not only raise your eyebrows but it will also smooth the skin on your forehead and improve lines as well. This will enhance your overall look by rejuvenating your skin and your appearance.
