Brow Lifts in Beverly Hills: What You Need to Know

The forehead and eyebrows can have a dramatic influence on your appearance, and play an important role in the overall frame of the face. Drooping of the forehead and brows is common with age, and can affect how one is perceived, for attractiveness as well as level of alertness or vitality. The goal results differ for men versus women, and brow shape and position are tailored in the facial procedure accordingly. The position of the hairline is also an important consideration.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is My Forehead Too Big?

Typically the forehead and brows make up the upper 1/3 of the face in those whose features meet aesthetic ideal proportions. The distance from hairline to brow is usually 5-6 cm.

Can You Get Surgery to Make Your Forehead Smaller?

Yes, you can get a forehead reduction to reduce the size of the forehead. This involves advancing the hairline down.

What is an Eyebrow Lift?

An eyebrow lift involves raising the forehead and brows, and can be tailored to lift just the outer brow, inner brow, or both, and can also affect the shape of the brow.

How is a Brow Lift Done?

A brow lift can be done endoscopically (through ~ 5 small incisions typically hidden within hair), via limited incisions typically along the temporal hairline, or through a coronal incision (spanning ear to ear through the hair). Once the brow is lifted, it can be secured at the lifted position with absorbable posts or sutures.

When Do You Need a Brow Lift?

In women, a brow lift is typically indicated once the mid-outer third of the brow falls to less than 1 cm from the supraorbital rim. In men, it is indicated when the brow position begins to fall below the rim.

Are Brow Lifts Safe?

Brow lifts are generally safe. Risks include alopecia, paresthesias or numbness, and asymmetry.

How Long Does a Brow Lift Last?

The longevity of a brow lift depends on the technique used and also characteristics of the tissues, but typically lasts 3-7 years.

How Much is Brow Lift Surgery?
