What Is A Brow Lift or Eyelid Surgery?

As they get older, many men and women start to notice changes in the shape and appearance of their eyes. These issues are commonly caused by sagging in the eyelids or brow, which can create a tired, aged look. For individuals dealing with hooded eyes in Newport Beach, CA, Dr. Ghazizadeh MD is thrilled to provide relief with a selection of eyelid surgeries (blepharoplasty) or brow lift techniques. Not only are these procedures effective for creating a more clear-eyed, alert appearance, but they also help to reduce the look of wrinkles and bags around the eyes. If you're ready to give your face a refresh, contact our office and schedule a cosmetic facial consultation with Dr. Shabnam Ghazizadeh.

How Does An Eyelid or Brow Lift Work?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Ghazizadeh will talk with you about your goals before examining your eyes and facial structure. With this information, she can construct a surgical plan to give your eyes a more open, energetic look. The exact technique used will depend on the degree of sagging that is being addressed. There are several possible approaches she may take, including:

  • Upper Eyelid Surgery
    This procedure involves making an incision within the fold of the eyelid and bringing it out wide. After making the incision, Dr. Ghazizadeh will remove excess skin and other tissues. The cut will be closed with absorbable sutures to create a natural appearance.
  • Lower Eyelid Surgery
    This technique is similar to upper eyelid surgery, but the incision is instead located along the bottom of the lash line. After removing excess fat and skin, Dr. Ghazizadeh may inject the area with filler to help alleviate bags or hollowness under the eyes.
  • Traditional Incision
    Also called the open lift incision, this brow lift technique puts the surgical incision at the top of the head behind the hairline. This incision not only masks scarring, but it also provides a certain degree of controlled lifting during the surgery. The open incision is good for those with both a sagging brow and frown lines. This is the better technique if you are at risk of having a receding hairline.
  • Trichophytic Incision
    In this procedure, an incision is made along the hairline, allowing for a more dramatic brow lift. This is a more suitable approach for patients who are not at risk of a receding hairline.
  • Lateral Brow Lift (Temporal Browplasty)
    By making an incision slightly above the temples and just inside the hairline, Dr. Ghazizadeh can correct sagging along the outer portions of the brow. This method is also effective for diminishing the appearance of fine lines around the eyes (Crow's feet).
  • Endoscopic Forehead Lift
    This is a more advanced endoscopic technique. After making a number of incisions in the hairline, Dr. Ghazizadeh inserts an endoscope, which is moved down to the brow. The endoscope is then used to move the brow tissue, stitching it into a better position to help address any sagging.

Your recovery following a brow or eyelid lift will vary, depending on the technique that was used. Generally, swelling and discomfort are the biggest side effects. Both can be relieved with cold compresses. Dr. Ghazizadeh recommends patients sleep upright for the first several nights following their surgery. It is critical to avoid any activities or movement that may place pressure on the face during this time. The typical recovery period from a brow lift is around 2 – 3 weeks. The results can often be seen immediately, resulting in a refreshed appearance that looks more alert, softer, and with a visible reduction in fine lines and sagging in the upper portion of the face.
