As we age, the forehead and eyebrows are particularly affected. The eyebrows can assume a lowered, angry look, while the forehead can be riddled with wrinkles. When this occurs, a brow lift is the procedure to restore smooth contours and raise the eyebrows. While this is a procedure that can easily be overdone to create a waxy, constantly surprised expression, Dr. Esmailian delivers it with taste and subtlety.
Brow Lift Procedure
A brow lift is done under local or general anesthetic to provide total comfort during the procedure. This decision will be made according to our board certified anesthesiologist, with your preference taken into account. The technique used in a brow lift can vary depending upon what needs to be handled. The technique used will dictate which incisions are used, which will in turn affect the resulting scars. Dr. Esmailian may use one of the following techniques to give the results you want:
Endoscopic Brow Lift
An endoscopic brow lift is minimally invasive. It is done through tiny incisions made behind the hairline. Through these incisions, Dr. Esmailian uses specialized instruments to tighten the underlying muscles and tissues.
Coronal Brow Lift
A coronal brow lift uses incisions made behind the hairline across the top of the head. Once the incision is made, Dr. Esmailian will pull the forehead skin upwards, overlapping the scalp behind the incision. He will then see how much excess skin needs to be removed. Once it has been removed, he repositions the remaining skin and closes the incision.
There are several other techniques that may be used to positively affect the appearance of the forehead and eyebrows. Upon your initial consultation, Dr. Esmailian will listen to your concerns and review all options. His passion for making patients happy is what motivates him to deliver the best brow lift Orange County has available. Please call us to ask any questions you like or to schedule a consultation.
