A Brow Lift (Forehead Lift) can:

  • Diminish "frown lines" and wrinkles on the forehead caused by repeated motion or changed skin quality
  • Lift up brows that have descended over time
  • Correct moderately loose eyelid tissues
  • Create a more positive, energetic, and youthful appearance

Planning Your Procedure

Customization is the key to excellent plastic surgery results. Raffi Hovsepian, M.D., will perform a detailed examination of your facial tissues and evaluate your desired facial goals thoroughly before he develops a surgical approach individualized to your physiology and desires.

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.

Brow Lift (Forehead Lift) Surgery

Prior to your procedure, Dr. Raffi Hovsepian and his skilled aesthetic team will meet with you to make sure you understand your procedure and recovery thoroughly, and to answer any questions you may have. Privacy, safety, comfort, and excellence in treatment with trusting compassionate care are the benefits of Dr. Hovsepian’s patient experience.

Before coming into the Beverly Hills surgery center, you will need to begin fasting 8 hours prior to your procedure, which means you cannot eat or drink anything at all during this period, including chewing gum or drinking water. If you have been instructed by Dr. Hovsepian to take any medications in the morning, this is permitted with a few sips of water.

Brow lift (forehead lift) surgery is performed under general anesthesia which means you will be completely asleep and feel nothing during surgery. The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, but some patients prefer an overnight stay. Out-of-town patients may stay in a near-by aftercare facility or hotel, where a "private duty" nurse is available. The surgery itself generally takes one hour, although you should expect to spend extra time in the operating room if your procedure will focus on multiple areas. Afterward, you will return to your home, aftercare facility, or hotel conveniently located a short distance from the surgical center.
