Brow & Forehead Lift
Beverly Hills & Los Angeles
Browlift procedures can revitalize drooping or lined foreheads, helping you to look less angry, sad or tired. Using either traditional or minimally invasive (endoscopic) methods, the muscles above the eyes are altered to smooth lines and raise the eyebrows for a more youthful appearance. Dr. Ghavami has helped further define these target muscles through extensive anatomical research that has earned him the prestigious Gaspar Anastasi Award at the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery meeting. A browlift is often combined with other operations such as blepharoplasty and facelifts to improve the look of the eyes and other areas of the face and restore aesthetic balance to the upper face. As in a facelift, it is very important to respect the hairline whether making tiny incisions behind the hairline or along the hairline.

Actual Patient Not a Model
Many women choose to get a brow lift in Beverly Hills & Los Angeles as they get older and lose some of the skin elasticity on their face. Decreased skin elasticity coupled with worn out collagen and muscle causes skin to droop and exaggerate wrinkles. In some cases this characteristic drooping gives the eyes a perpetual tired/sad look, which many consider unflattering. In addition, years and years of frowning or tensing of the muscles from stress or sunlight can create deep lined above and in between the brows. Through a forehead lift with Dr. Ghavami, women are able to undergo this procedure and make themselves look ten or sometimes twenty years younger without overcorrection.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
There are two methods for brow lift surgery. The endoscopic brow lift works by making tiny incisions near the hairline, inserting endoscopic instruments (including a tiny camera) and separating skin and its attached fat and muscles from the forehead area of the skull. Worn out or overactive muscles that pull down the brows and create frown lines, can then be removed, and the skin and ligaments can be pulled upwards via the small incisions near the hairline. The endoscopic or minimal incision browlift is the most commonly used, however some patients have very thick skin or deep wrinkled and a customized coronal or “open” technique may be best suited.
Coronary Brow Lift
The coronary brow lift (traditional) works by making a broad incision along the top of the head, from ear to ear. The pattern of the incision depends on your hair pattern and is customized for your needs. The incision is kept far from the hairline and hair often grows through the scar so that it is imperceptible in the future. Skin is then carefully separated from the skull, and the top of the face is folded downwards so that problematic worn muscle can be removed. The muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles and lines are removed or debulked. This gives your browlift longevity. Excess skin can then be cut out and the face can be re-sutured at the incision on the top of the head. In both the endoscopic and coronary brow lift methods, the result is a tightened, wrinkle-free skin surface with reduced droopiness of the brow. Many who undergo a brow lift also opt to get a face lift in Los Angeles in order to give a rejuvenated appearance to the whole face.
Brow Lift Surgeon Dr. Ghavami
As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Ghavami will ask to see pictures of your brow position when you were in your twenties or early thirties because often a browlift does not actually require the brows to be lifted very much and it is more of a forehead smoothing and brow shaping technique. The over-pulled or “too tight” look is avoided at all costs. The results are natural.
Patients who have gotten a brow lift with Dr. Ghavami are often surprised as to how young they look afterwards. Browlifts can also replace all those future Botox appointments as the muscles that are Botoxed are removed or smoothed away!
