An eyebrow lift can revitalize drooping or lined foreheads, adjust the skin above the eyes to smooth the forehead, diminish frown lines, and elevate the eyebrows.
What is an eyebrow lift?
An eyebrow lift can revitalize drooping or lined foreheads, adjust the skin above the eyes to smooth the forehead, diminish frown lines, and elevate the eyebrows. Over time, the effects of age and gravity can pull your brow down heavily until it sags. With a brow lift, Dr. Natalia Tilki can restore the contours of your youth.
By repositioning the tissue in your forehead, eyelids, and eyebrows, the procedures can take years off of your appearance. Patients who are dissatisfied with deep creases in the forehead, frown lines between the brows, or excess fatty tissue over the eyes can also qualify for treatment.
How can an eyebrow lift help me?
This treatment is perfect for patients who are looking to correct:
- Frown lines (wrinkles on the forehead)
- Excessive skin above and around the eyebrows
- The effects of aging with inelastic skin
- A brow position that is too low
Why schedule at Emerald Aesthetics Center?
During your initial consultation, Dr. Tilki will discuss your options and alternatives to help you make an informed decision. In some cases, you may be able to avoid surgery. If surgery is the best option for you, Dr. Tilki will make incisions in inconspicuous spots so that your scars will be undetectable. Two weeks before your surgery, you will come in for a pre-op appointment to go over the full instructions for your brow lift.
What can I expect during surgery?
A brow lift is a standard, outpatient procedure performed at our aesthetic center in Encino. You will be under general or local anesthesia during the entirety of the process (approximately 2 hours). Dr. Tilki can utilize two techniques to perform this surgery: traditional or endoscopic (minimally invasive).
During the operation, Dr. Tilki will evaluate the skin above your brows to smooth your forehead, elevate your eyebrows, and diminish your frown lines for a symmetric and rejuvenated appearance.
Dr. Tilki will make a coronal incision behind your hairline, stretching between your ears and across the top of your forehead. If you have thinning hair, the incision can be placed further back or along the skull bone joints to minimize visibility. Next, your forehead skin will be lifted, the tissue will be removed, muscles will be adjusted, and your brows may be lifted. Any excess skin will be trimmed, and the incision will be closed up with stitches or staples. The site will be washed, and your incision will be protected with gauze.
During an endoscopic procedure, Dr. Tilki will make 3-5 short incisions behind your hairline. An endoscope (a thin tube with a powerful light and tiny camera at one end) will then be placed in one incision. The endoscope will allow her to see beneath your skin without having to make a larger incision. Dr. Tilki will then adjust your muscles and lift your skin through the other incisions.
What can I expect after the procedure?
After your operation, you will be able to return home. If surgical staples were used to close the incision, they would be removed one week after your surgery (along with your stitches).
Patients are usually able to return to work after 4-6 days. The majority of your swelling and bruising will fade after a week, and strenuous activities should be avoided during that time. Scars from an eyebrow lift typically disappear in a few months, but makeup can be used to minimize the effects of any bruising.
