Brow Lift in San Diego

You may be a candidate for a brow lift (forehead lift) if you have a sagging forehead or brows that hang too low and too close to the eyes. You may also desire a forehead lift if you have deep vertical furrows between the eyebrows (frown lines).

A forehead lift is intended to give a more youthful and rested appearance to the forehead and upper eyelids.

The brow lift procedure

A forehead lift in San Diego is done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia or monitored sedation. The incisions are usually made behind the hairline.

For patients with high foreheads, the incisions can be placed in front of the hairline. The operation is done by lifting and repositioning the forehead skin, during which time the muscles that cause frown lines are weakened.

Since 1988, more than 25,000 patients have had safe, successful procedures at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre.

Which “lift” is best for me?

It can be tricky to know exactly which procedure might give you the results you want when your eyes, forehead, and cheeks all work together to form your facial expressions. A common mistake is to assume that a “facelift” will improve all areas of the face, but that’s not actually the case. Here’s a nutshell version of what each procedure can improve:

  • Facelift: sagging, lax skin in the cheeks, jowls and neck
  • Brow lift: sagging, heavy, and wrinkled forehead tissue
  • Eyelid Lift: drooping, heavy upper or lower lids that cause a tired or sad appearance
