When it comes to communicating feelings and emotions, the eyes and forehead play a prominent role, as explained by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. Yet, for some individuals, aging and stress have resulted in a tired and lifeless appearance. Thus, to obtain a rested and refreshed look, many seek the latest advancements in brow lift surgery (also known as a forehead lift). As a dual board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Maurice Khosh uses a variety of intricate surgical and non-surgical techniques to help patients achieve a vibrant, youthful appearance.
Perhaps you can recall the position of your eyebrows when you were younger. With a gentle arch at the outer border, youthful eyebrows are naturally positioned above the orbital rim. With age, however, the eyebrow tends to drop and lose its arch. The result is a heavy, tired or even sad expression. Fortunately, leading-edge techniques in facial rejuvenation provide an array of options for patients of all ages.
To begin, brow lift surgery concentrates on the upper one-third of the face. Yet, there is not a one-size-fits-all approach. The most favorable results are achieved when a cosmetic surgeon rightfully considers a patient’s goals, unique anatomy and facial characteristics, along with the extent of corrections needed.
As a minimally invasive procedure, endoscopic brow lift surgery involves making several very small incisions behind the hairline. Underlying tissues of the forehead, along with its muscles, are gently lifted and repositioned. Excess fat is removed during this process. To ensure optimal results, a small camera and special instruments are used to guide the procedure.
Often performed with eyelid surgery, a temporal brow lift requires longer incisions, and these are behind the hairline above each temple. This allows for tissues of the outer brow area to be lifted safely and appropriately. In turn, a classic forehead lift is another option, though it is reserved for those with excessive forehead height.
In creating results that are fitting and natural, Dr. Khosh spends ample time with each patient. When discussing brow lift surgery, Dr. Khosh may also mention Botox injections or other non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures, as he always provides options for patients to achieve their desired result. In any case, however, brow lift surgery and repositioning is a highly individualized procedure that requires utmost skill and a consideration of every aesthetic detail.
