Why Do People Get Forehead Lift Surgery?

Brow lift New York, NY

When your brow drops and the arch flattens with age and gravity, it can make you look melancholy or exhausted. Usually, the youthful eyebrow sits above the orbital rim and has a soft arch at its outer border. Thus, the goal of a brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is to restore the eyebrow’s natural contour, leaving you with a refreshed and youthful appearance again.

If your brow is sagging or your eyebrows are not evenly spaced, you may want to consider getting forehead lift surgery. It is an elective cosmetic procedure that can be performed independently or in conjunction with other facial surgeries. In addition, it can boost your self-confidence and make you look years younger.

What Does Forehead Lift Surgery Entail?

The forehead, brow and eye area can all benefit from a brow lift to make you look younger and more refreshed. The surgery involves lifting the soft tissue and skin of the brow and forehead.

The brows tend to droop as people become older. This happens because skin and other soft tissues no longer return to their original shape as quickly when stretched. As a result, the space between your brows and eyelashes shrinks. Different methods of brow lifting are used to achieve various effects. Your desired outcome will determine the appropriate plan for you.

All forehead lift procedures take between one to two hours. Afterward, you will be given instructions on how to care for the incisions. You will also have to stop smoking before and after to ensure optimal healing. Dr. Khosh will review all the requirements with you during your consultation.

The Various Brow Procedures Performed by Dr. Khosh

Dr. Khosh uses several techniques for the brows and eyes to rejuvenate the face. Endoscopic and temporal brow lifts are two standard methods for restoring a younger appearance to the forehead; the results are permanent and dramatic.

A second option is the open forehead lift. Only people with unusually high foreheads should consider having this traditional surgery done.

Another option is the direct brow lift. People with facial nerve paralysis or men with severe frown lines on their foreheads are ideal candidates for this procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Khosh will discuss the various treatment choices with you and explain the advantages of each method in detail.

Dr. Khosh may also discuss non-surgical treatments, like® Botox injections, or complementing facial rejuvenation surgeries like blepharoplasty and a facelift. He always strives for results that look natural and harmonious. You can learn more about your options when you visit our office. Get in touch with us to set up a consultation or ask any questions.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
