Is a brow lift right for me?

Those seeking facial rejuvenation can achieve a beautiful outcome with a brow lift in Oceanside. The surgery is often combined with a facelift to address both the upper and lower facial regions. The surgery treats any of the following cosmetic issues:

  • Deep, visible forehead creases
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Sagging eyelids
  • Heavy, fatty, or overhanging forehead skin
  • Eyebrows that have drifted downward due to age

Brow lift techniques

A brow lift is a custom procedure, and the approach selected by Dr. Moradi will reflect each patient’s condition. The options include:


This technique is often necessary for those with extensive sagging and can also be a positive approach for those with a lower natural hairline. The incision stretches from ear to ear within the hairline, and the tissues are lifted and tightened.


This approach is appropriate for patients with less extreme signs of aging on the forehead. It involves smaller incisions placed at the temples, with the advantage of treating the outer drooping of the eyelids. 


This approach can be highly successful for the right candidates. The benefits include smaller incisions to lift and reposition sagging tissues and skin. An endoscope (fiber optic camera) is inserted through the incision, transmitting real-time images of the muscles and tissues, which are then carefully and precisely lifted with another unique surgical instrument through another small incision. This approach allows for a faster recovery time than traditional, open brow lift surgery.

What can I expect from the procedure?

This procedure can be performed with local anesthesia and intravenous sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the work required. In either case, you will feel no pain or discomfort. The tissues are meticulously repaired and lifted, with excess skin tissues removed to create a natural, refreshed look. The procedure takes one to two hours to complete, after which the area is bandaged. When you become alert after surgery, you will be released to go home to rest and recover, driven by another adult. 

How long is the recovery?

Recovery time from our brow lift in Carlsbad can vary, depending on the surgical technique used. For most patients, the healing process takes about two weeks. You can expect to experience some bruising and swelling in the first stage of healing, which typically fades quickly. You will need to sleep on your back with your head elevated by extra pillows or a foam wedge. You must avoid vigorous physical activities for a few weeks, but you are encouraged to take gentle walks daily for circulation and faster healing. Any sutures are removed in one to two weeks. Your significantly refreshed look will be ready for a “reveal” in about ten days to two weeks, with any residual bruising hidden with makeup.
