Forehead Lift Candidates Los Angeles

Do people think you’re frowning – when you’re not? Do you have an angry, tired or sad appearance? Do you have wrinkles across your forehead? Do the deep grooves between your eyebrows or heavy and drooping brows annoy you?

If so, you can achieve a more youthful, happy and rested appearance through a Forehead Lift or Brow Lift.

Sometimes, patients who think they need Eyelid Surgery discover that a Forehead Lift is better suited to their goals. In many men and women, the forehead and brow are the first features to show the inevitable signs of aging.

A Forehead Lift, also known as a Brow Lift, is a procedure that corrects drooping brows. It also corrects the lines and grooves that make a man or woman appear tired, angry or even sad. The end result is a smoother looking forehead, a refreshed appearance and the return of the eyebrows to a higher and more natural position.

Where do Forehead wrinkles or Frown Lines come from?

Hyperactivity of the forehead Frontalis Muscle (C) due to stress, prolonged reading, and sun damage results in the formation of forehead wrinkles.

Excessive squinting, stress, sun damage, aging, and chronic sinusitis can also attribute to the formation of deep frown lines by causing the Procerus (D) and Corrugator (E) muscles to stay tense and overly contracted.

Excessive squinting, stress, sun damage, aging, and chronic sinusitis can also attribute to the formation of deep frown lines by causing the Procerus (D) and Corrugator (E) muscles to stay tense and overly contracted.

Over activity of the Orbicularis Occuli Muscles (A & B) results in the formation of Crow’s feet at the sides of the eyes.

During a Forehead or Brow lift the all these muscles are weakened or disabled in order to smoothen the forehead and to allow the eyebrows to migrate to a higher normal position.

Who Is a Candidate for a Forehead Lift?

As with Eyelid Surgery, men and women who no longer wish to appear tired, older, angry or sad because of their aging features are Forehead Lift candidates.

Some of the features corrected by this procedure include wrinkle lines across the forehead, deep furrows between the eyebrows, deep frown lines, and sagging, heavy eyebrows. If necessary, the surgeon removes part of the muscle that causes vertical frown lines.

Generally, patients are between 40 to 60 years of age. However, men and women of any age who inherited the conditions mentioned above – such as a low, heavy brow or furrows above the nose — can benefit from the procedure. Wrinkling of the forehead and sagging of the eyebrows are part of the aging process.

Are There Non-Cosmetic Reasons for Forehead Lift?

Yes. Sometimes, trauma or nerve injuries can cause facial features to droop. Some patients concerned with extra skin of their upper eyelid actual have brows that are too low. The extra skin can fatigue the eyelids – sometimes to the point where patients tape their upper eyelid to their forehead in order to see. A Brow Lift can be corrective in these cases as well.

Where is the ideal brow position?

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Having said that, the ideal or the most aseptically pleasing position of the brows in women is at or just above the upper eye socket margin. Obviously, the brow is not a straight line, and it peaks at the outer margin of the Iris (point E). The medial and lateral edges of the brow (B & C) are at about the same level. If the medial part of the eyebrow is relatively too high it give an “exclamation or sad look.” On the other hand when the lateral edge of the brow is relatively too high it give the appearance of being mad or angry.
