As we age, the eyebrows tend to sag and start pushing down our upper eyelid skin. This can give a tired look to the eyes, as well as an angry or scowled look to the face. Although Botox® can often soften this scowl, and help lift the brows up, some patients need surgical correction to lift the brows higher. For years, brow lifts, also known as forehead lifts, were being performed too aggressively and patients were getting a surprised or overdone look. Today, brow lifts are done more conservatively and are focused on lifting the outer edges of the brows.
Options for a brow lift include an endoscopic brow lift, a temporal brow lift, a trichophytic brow lift, a mid-forehead brow lift and a direct brow lift. Dr. Balikian is very conservative with his brow lifts and will go over which options he thinks will work best for you after performing a thorough examination. He will always give an honest assessment and individualize his surgical recommendation for you.
