Brow & Forehead Lift
The brow lift, also known as forehead lift, is an excellent procedure for rejuvenating the eye and forehead area and may be combined with other facial procedures. At his surgery center in La Jolla, San Diego, Dr. Singer offers several brow lift variations that can produce stunning results.
Indications for Brow Lift & Forehead Lift
As we age, the skin and soft tissue of our brows and foreheads tend to droop. Some patients inherit lower position of their brows. The position of the brows and accentuation of the furrows and creases may impart an angry appearance. This includes prominent transverse lines and vertical lines above the nose and between the eyebrows.
While certain frown lines may be corrected temporarily by injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic, a longer lasting improvement can be achieved through surgical procedures such as brow lift or endoscopic brow lift. These procedures can remove excess tissue and diminish contracting muscles that cause forehead creases.
Brow Lift Consultation
When you have a brow lift consultation at our office in La Jolla, San Diego, Dr. Singer personally listens to your desires and expectations for surgery and then evaluates your facial anatomy. Dr. Singer can then create a custom treatment plan that best suits your individual needs.
Dr. Singer offers many brow lift techniques that can be customized for each patient’s desired results. No matter which method is utilized, the result should look natural and not over-corrected.
Endoscopic Brow Lift / Forehead Surgery
Endoscopic forehead surgery (brow lift), which is minimally invasive, involves making several small incisions in inconspicuous areas on the scalp. During the procedure, an endoscope – a miniature pencil-like camera that is attached to a television monitor – is inserted through the incisions to view the tissues underneath the skin. Dr. Singer uses the endoscope when appropriate to visualize and modify the muscles and tissue beneath the skin. Results are predictably pleasing and the scars are small, inconspicuous, and hidden in the hairline. However, not everyone is a good candidate for this procedure.
Traditional Brow Lift
The traditional brow lift, an open approach with incisions behind or occasionally at the hairline, may be indicated in some patients. Incisions for a traditional lift must be individually tailored to accommodate the patient’s hairline. During this procedure, forehead size can be either reduced or increased. Once the location has been determined, the necessary incisions can be made. Dr. Singer then lifts the skin and removes and/or repositions excess tissue. The muscles that were causing the forehead to crease can be relaxed, and the skin is trimmed and redraped to smooth out major wrinkles and creases.
Eyelid Approach Brow Lift
In some patients, the central forehead frown lines can be improved through the same incision that is used to remove excess fat and skin from the upper eyelids during eyelid surgery. The muscles responsible for the frown lines are modified through the eyelid incision while avoiding any scalp incision.
