Do people often ask you if you are tired, angry, or upset — even when you are happy and rested? Has age caused the skin on your forehead to droop or furrow together? If these situations describe you, you may be presenting an appearance to others that doesn’t accurately represent the way you feel. A brow lift from the San Francisco-area office of Dr. Behmand may be able to correct deep frown lines, horizontal forehead creases, and droopy eyebrows, helping to match your expression to your mood.
Because the face is a complex interconnection of muscles, a consultation is especially important before undergoing a brow lift.
San Francisco plastic surgeon Ramin Behmand can examine the underlying cause of your wrinkles and determine whether a brow lift or another form of cosmetic treatment is right for you. In certain cases, the effect of a brow lift can be magnified by combining it with other procedures, such as a facelift, eyelid surgery, or laser resurfacing.
The Brow Lift Procedure
There are two commonly used methods of performing a brow lift. These include the traditional open incision brow lift, which uses an incision across the scalp, and the newer endoscopic brow lift. Today, the latter technique has been refined and produces excellent and predictable results, and is considered the procedure of choice. Therefore, most patients seeking a brow lift at our San Francisco-area facility will be evaluated for the endoscopic brow lift first.
First, your hair will be tied back and five small incisions will be made at intervals along the hairline. Then, using an endoscope, or
small camera, and other surgical instruments, Dr. Behmand will lift and alter the tissues beneath the skin of the forehead. Sutures may be used to secure the eyebrows into a higher position.
After your brow lift is complete, you will find that your face has a naturally rested, refreshed look. To find out if brow lift is the
right choice for you, contact the office of San Francisco plastic surgeon Ramin Behmand today to schedule a consultation.
