There are natural changes to the face that come with aging. Genetics plays a role in how the skin ages; sun exposure is also a factor. Gravity comes into play as well. The result can be unsightly wrinkles and creases on the forehead. Fortunately, the field of cosmetic plastic surgery can restore a more youthful facial appearance. Our Beverly Hills brow lift can bring your face a far more relaxed fresh appearance.
The Browlift Procedure
The night before surgery, you must not eat or drink after midnight and will be asked to bathe with an anti-microbial soap the evening before as well as the morning of your procedure. Dr. Nassif will use one of two possible methods of performing your brow lift in Beverly Hills. In the classic method, the doctor will make an incision along your natural hairline to begin the process. This will be one long, continuous incision along your hairline that goes from the tip of the upper ear to the opposing tip of the ear.
Dr. Nassif will lift up the existing skin and trim away the excess. Furthermore, the doctor may need to trim the muscle beneath the forehead to give you a more natural appearance. Afterwards the physician closes the incision with the sutures. The placement of the incision can vary if you use the brow lift procedure to achieve other goals, such as addressing hair loss.
Advances in technology allow the physician to use endoscopy to perform the brow lift – a less invasive form of surgery. In this type of surgery, several small incisions will be made within the hairline. Often, the amount of bruising and swelling is reduced, and this procedure requires less recovery time and avoids the risks of general anesthesia.
