Brow Lift: Forehead Lift Los Angeles
The Brow Lift procedure corrects drooping brows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a person appear angry, sad or tired. In a Brow Lift, the muscles and tissues that cause the furrowing or drooping are removed or altered to smooth the forehead, raise the eyebrows and minimize frown lines.
It is a procedure designed to elevate the brow to a more youthful position. Since most people focus on the area of the eyes when talking to you, it can make your face appear younger. Dr. Boris uses the newer minimally invasive techniques for brow lift.
Your surgeon may use the conventional surgical method, in which the incision is hidden just behind the hairline; or it may be performed with the use of an endoscope, a viewing instrument that allows the procedure to be performed with minimal incisions. Both techniques yield similar results — smoother forehead skin and a more animated appearance.
If you’re considering a forehead lift at our Los Angeles Surgical Center, this information will provide a basic understanding of the procedure — when it can help, how it’s performed and what results you can expect. It won’t answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on your individual circumstances.

Can you benefit from a brow lift?
A browlift, will make the eyes appear more open and sparkling .A person with lots of frown wrinkles, lines, or a ‘anxious look’, a ‘sad look’, or an ‘angry look’ may be treated with BOTOX, but the effects are only short-term, and the costs can add up after a few treatments. With botox, the forehead can at times look ‘frozen’. Different patients can have different results with Botox.
A modestly invasive brow lift works by weakening the muscles that work to pull down or crease collectively the brows. The muscles that elevate the brow continue to be fully active. As a result, the brow is elevated, the ‘worry lines’ and forehead wrinkles are greatly enhanced.
The effect of the browlift surgical procedure. sometimes also known as a forehead lift, is enduring and the brow does not look ‘frozen’ as it know how to with BOTOX. After a brow lift, the brow can convey emotions and looks naturaly. When combined with a mid facelift, the outcome is effective and long-term.
To get to the muscles which need lifting, a number of small incisions are made in the scalp. An endoscope is introduced through one of the miniature incisions and the operating instrument through the other. The brow muscles are surgically altered. The skin is closed after fixing it in position.
With the browlift method, there is no elongated scar, no cutting of skin, no ‘pulling back’ on the forehead skin, and no hair loss.
