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:

There are a wide variety of “problem areas” for which Eyelid & Brow Lift surgery patients have been successfully treated. These areas can include (but are not limited to:

  • Sagging or drooping upper eyelids
  • Excess skin or puffiness in the upper eyelids
  • Hooding of the upper eyelids
  • Drooping eyebrows
  • Forehead wrinkles and furrows
  • Crow's feet around the eyes
  • Bags or puffiness under the eyes
  • Hollow or sunken appearance around the eyes
  • Uneven or asymmetrical eyebrows
  • Difficulty applying makeup due to hooded eyelids
  • Impaired peripheral vision due to sagging eyelid skin
  • Tired or aged appearance in the eye area

We believe in empowering individuals through transformative cosmetic enhancements that celebrate natural beauty and inspire confidence. Our eyelid surgery and brow lift procedures offer numerous benefits, helping you achieve a refreshed and revitalized appearance while addressing common signs of aging in the eye and brow area.

Improved Eye Appearance

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can rejuvenate your eyes by removing excess skin, reducing puffiness, and eliminating drooping eyelids. This results in a more awake and youthful appearance, enhancing the overall aesthetic of your eyes.

Rejuvenated Facial Expression

A brow lift, or forehead lift, helps lift sagging brows and smooth forehead wrinkles, creating a more youthful and refreshed facial expression. By addressing forehead lines and drooping brows, this procedure can restore a more vibrant and energetic look to your face.

Enhanced Vision

In some cases, sagging eyelid skin can obstruct vision, impairing peripheral vision and causing discomfort. Eyelid surgery can correct this issue, improving your field of vision and enhancing both your appearance and visual function.

Boosted Self-Confidence

By revitalizing your eye and brow area, eyelid surgery and brow lift procedures can significantly boost your self-confidence and improve your overall quality of life. Feeling more confident in your appearance can positively impact various aspects of your personal and professional life, allowing you to face each day with renewed assurance and positivity.

Deciding whether eyelid surgery or a brow lift is the right choice for you involves assessing several factors, including your aesthetic objectives, concerns regarding eyelid aging, and overall health. If you are bothered by drooping eyelids, excess skin on the upper eyelids, or puffiness around the eyes, eyelid surgery may offer a suitable solution. Similarly, individuals seeking to address sagging brows, forehead lines, or a tired appearance may find a brow lift beneficial.

During your consultation with Dr. Shabnam, she will carefully evaluate your specific concerns, discuss your desired outcomes, and determine your eligibility for either procedure. Together, you can explore the options available and decide on the best approach to help you achieve a refreshed and revitalized appearance.

The process of eyelid surgery and brow lift commences with a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Ghazizadeh, where your individual concerns and aesthetic goals will be thoroughly discussed. Following the determination that eyelid surgery or a brow lift is the ideal solution for you, a customized surgical plan will be meticulously crafted. On the day of the procedure, you will receive comfortable sedation or general anesthesia to ensure your utmost comfort throughout. Dr. Ghazizadeh will skillfully create carefully placed incisions, typically concealed within the natural contours of the eyes and brow region. Excess skin and fat will be delicately removed, and underlying muscles may be adjusted to achieve optimal results. Post-procedure, you can anticipate some swelling and bruising, gradually diminishing over the ensuing weeks. Dr. Ghazizadeh will furnish detailed post-operative instructions to facilitate your recovery and ensure the attainment of the best possible outcome.

If a sagging forehead or eyelids are giving you a sad, mad, tired, or angry appearance, you might benefit from blepharoplasty or a brow lift from Dr. Ghazizadeh MD in Newport Beach, CA. By correcting your drooping brow, you can revitalize your whole appearance and seem younger and more refreshed. Dr. Ghazizadeh strives for results that look natural; your procedure will have others saying you look younger instead of thinking you had 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.


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.


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.


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.


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).


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.

Can I have a brow lift if I already have a high hairline?

Yes, individuals with a high hairline can still undergo a brow lift to address concerns such as brow ptosis (drooping) or asymmetry. Dr. Ghazizadeh tailors the surgical approach to achieve optimal results while minimizing any potential changes to the hairline. By carefully planning incisions and adjusting tissue manipulation techniques, he can elevate and rejuvenate the brow without compromising aesthetic proportions or exacerbating existing hairline concerns.

How do I know if I need a brow lift, eyelift, or both?

The need for a brow lift, eyelift (blepharoplasty), or both depends on individual concerns, anatomical features, and aesthetic goals. Brow lift surgery primarily addresses eyebrow position and forehead wrinkles, while eyelift surgery targets excess skin, fat, and muscle laxity in the eyelid area. During the consultation, Dr. Ghazizadeh evaluates each patient's unique anatomy and aesthetic preferences to determine the most suitable treatment plan, which may involve a combination of brow lift and eyelift procedures for comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

Is it possible to have both an eyelift and a brow lift done at the same time?

Yes, it is possible to undergo both an eyelift and a brow lift during the same surgical session, known as a combined brow lift and blepharoplasty procedure. This approach allows for comprehensive rejuvenation of the upper face, addressing both eyebrow position and eyelid aesthetics simultaneously. Dr. Ghazizadeh assesses each patient's candidacy for combined surgery based on factors such as overall health, anatomical considerations, and surgical goals, ensuring safe and effective treatment with optimal outcomes.

What are the different brow lift techniques?

Brow lift techniques vary depending on factors such as the patient's anatomy, aesthetic goals, and surgeon preference. Common brow lift techniques include the traditional coronal brow lift, endoscopic brow lift, temporal or limited incision brow lift, and direct brow lift. Each technique offers unique advantages and limitations in terms of incision placement, tissue manipulation, and recovery time. Dr. Ghazizadeh discusses the available options during the consultation and recommends the most suitable technique based on individual needs and preferences.

What is the standard recovery time from brow lift surgery?

The standard recovery time from brow lift surgery varies depending on the technique used and individual healing factors. In general, patients can expect to resume normal activities within 1 to 2 weeks after surgery, with full recovery and optimal results becoming apparent over several weeks to months. Dr. Ghazizadeh provides detailed postoperative instructions to guide patients through each stage of the recovery process and monitors their progress during follow-up appointments.

When is the proper age to have a brow lift?

The proper age for a brow lift varies depending on individual factors such as skin elasticity, facial anatomy, and aesthetic concerns. While brow ptosis (drooping) can occur at any age due to genetic predisposition, environmental factors, or the natural aging process, most patients considering a brow lift are typically in their late 30s to 60s. However, age alone is not the sole determinant for candidacy. Dr. Ghazizadeh evaluates each patient's unique anatomy, concerns, and goals to determine the most appropriate timing for a brow lift. Patients should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of surgery.

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.
