Your upper face communicates much of your emotion and vitality, which is why even moderate sagging or wrinkles can convey an impression of tiredness, sadness or stress. Brow lift (forehead lift) surgery can help reverse this problem and restore a more energetic appearance.
Typically, a brow lift involves three components
Restoring the Position of Descended Brows
In the process of correcting the position of the forehead tissues, Dr. Raffi Hovsepian can also correct the position of brows that have descended over time. This adjustment may also improve the appearance of loose upper eyelid tissues. For extensive upper eyelid sagginess, Dr. Hovsepian will generally recommend combining blepharoplasty with your brow lift.
Tightening Loose Muscles
Sagging skin, wrinkles, age spots, and other factors play a role in facial aging; but many of the most frustrating "frown lines" and wrinkles result from changes to the position of the forehead muscles over time. An intimate understanding of minimally invasive surgical approaches allows Dr. Hovsepian to correct and restore the muscle’s position through a small incision hidden behind the hairline.
Smoothing Out Lines and Wrinkles
After adjusting the facial muscles, Dr. Hovsepian will gently pull the upper-forehead tissues upward and remove excess skin; paying special attention to maintain a natural angle of tension that will prevent a "pulled" look.
Technology has created a trend for less invasive procedures in all surgical specialties. The endoscope, with its’ accompanying instrumentation, has been the key development supporting this trend. The endoscope is now used in a variety of reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery applications, with the endoscopic brow lift, the first procedure to gain widespread acceptance. Raffi Hovsepian, M.D., has dedicated himself to achieving aesthetically exceptional results. His brow lift procedures utilize up-to-date, innovative technology designed to create minimal incisions and a natural appearance.
