Brow Lift Overview
At Moradi M.D. in San Diego, Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Amir Moradi, can perform an endoscopic brow lift procedure to restore a youthful look to the brow area. Interested patients are advised to contact Moradi M.D. to schedule a courtesy consultation. A brow lift, or forehead lift, is a surgical procedure that can restore a more youthful, refreshed appearance to the area above the eyes. A brow lift can also address a number of the signs of facial aging, such as vertical lines (frown lines) between the brows and creases or deep lines in the forehead. With brow lift surgery, Dr. Moradi can elevate drooping eyebrows to create a more youthful and alert appearance. Left untreated, a sagging brow line can impair vision and lead to a tired or annoyed appearance.
Brow Lift Reviews
"Aging gracefully with the help of this amazing man. I was referred to Dr. Moradi from a friend/client 5 years ago. I have had botox elsewhere and even lip injections. After getting my Botox and Restyline from Dr. Moradi, I see the difference between someone who just does Botox and someone who KNOWS Botox and Restyline. I love how Dr. Moradi tells me when he thinks I don't need something done that I'm asking for. I have never had someone spend so much time on my lips. He injects, manipulates with his hands, injects, manipulates...never giving me duck lips or lumpy lips. I'll be honest. I've had Botox affairs with other people recently that I was referred to cuz they were cheaper. But not the same. I don't get the smoooooth forehead and subtle brow lift with them. I'll gladly spend the money for the best. And after each appointment, he always says, "After 10 days if it's not perfect and you need any touch-ups, give us a call." I've only had to call and ask for a touch-up on a stubborn forehead line of mine a couple of times. Never a question. Happily makes it perfect for me. Love this man and his assistant Veronica! The entire staff's amazing!"- M.D. / Yelp / Dec 21, 2017
Open Brow Lift
Open brow lifts are typically performed with incisions that extend over the scalp. This can be cause for concern for some patients, as it may result in numbness behind the incisions. In some cases, this numbness can last up to one year. Additionally, there is a greater risk of visible scarring following treatment. However, many patients find that the advantages of this procedure outweigh the potential downsides, as the open incision technique allows for a predictable and consistent outcome in the forehead and frown lines.
Patients interested in brow lift surgery are encouraged to speak with our team regarding their options. At our San Diego practice, we pride ourselves on providing patients with the information they need to make informed decisions regarding their treatment. We recommend the endoscopic technique in nearly all cases, but an open brow lift may be a suitable alternative for some patients.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
At our state-of-the-art San Diego surgical facility, most of the brow lifts we perform are endoscopic. An endoscopic brow lift is the most current procedure to lift and reposition the eyebrows and forehead. During this treatment, tiny incisions are placed in the scalp. Through these incisions, a small endoscope (fiber optic camera) is placed. This camera is used to transmit images to a television screen, allowing for a clear view of the muscles and tissue beneath the skin.
Using another instrument, inserted through a separate incision, the forehead skin is lifted and the muscles and underlying tissues are altered to produce a smoother appearance. The eyebrows may also be lifted and secured into their higher position by sutures beneath the skin’s surface. Using the endoscopic camera in conjunction with surgical tools, Dr. Moradi is able to alter the brow line with unparalleled precision and control. The result is an improved appearance with less downtime following surgery.
Brow Lift During/After Surgery
A brow lift is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. It can last between 1 – 2 hours. Patients are sent home after surgery and advised to limit movement for up to 2 days. There will be some bruising and swelling that may be present on other areas of the face, such as the cheeks. Patients will be able to go back to a normal routine within a week. Strenuous activities must be avoided as it may affect healing. It is quite normal to feel as though the face is out of symmetry, but within 3 – 6 months, patients will see the optimized results, and look and feel younger with a rejuvenated outcome.
