Brow Lift Plastic Surgery Procedure StepsJanuary 2, 2018
As a person ages, the brows can create transverse lines on the forehead, vertical glabellar lines, and wrinkles at the top of the nose. The condition of sagging brows can be corrected with brow lift surgery. During the initial consultation, the surgeon will discuss various steps involved in brow lift surgery with the patient.
Once the patient is aware of what the procedure entails, they are likely to feel more reassured and make a better decision about brow lift surgery. Remarkable, prudent, and board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie MD provides brow lift surgery to appropriate candidates in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
A detailed consultation process is the first vital step in a brow lift surgery procedure. The surgeon will encourage the patient to ask questions and clarify all their doubts and concerns during the consultation. They may present brow lift before and after photos, testimonials of past patients, and help the patient make an informed decision.
The surgeon will review the patient’s medical history and examine their facial anatomy and condition of the brows and forehead skin as well as eyelids. The estimates costs and the potential risks will also be discussed with the patient during the consultation.
Customized Surgical Plan
Dr. Motykie will meticulously plan every step of the brow lift surgery procedure in order to customize the surgery according to the patient’s unique needs. He will discuss the benefits and limitations of advanced brow lift techniques such as the endoscopic brow lift, pre-hairline brow lift, lateral brow lift and coronal brow lift.
In close consultation with the patient, Dr. Motykie will determine the best technique to accomplish a brow lift in a less invasive and more targeted manner.
Dr. Motykie will usually perform a brow lift surgery using local anesthesia with mild sedation. If the procedure is combined with an eyelid lift or a facelift, general anesthesia may be used. The patient will remain completely comfortable throughout the procedure.
Following anesthesia, the first step will be placement of the incision. This will vary according to the choice of brow lift technique. In a coronal brow lift and the lateral brow lift, Dr. Motykie will place the incision behind the natural hairline in the scalp. The endoscopic technique will involve placing several small, one-half-inch to one-inch incisions just behind the hairline.
The pre-hairline technique will create an incision immediately in front of the hairline and is ideal for patients with long foreheads and receded hairlines. The goal of the surgery in each technique will be to raise the forehead. Through the incisions, Dr. Motykie will gently weaken the underlying brow muscles. This will reduce the impact of frown lines, leading to a rested and rejuvenated appearance of the forehead and brows.
Once the surgery is completed, Dr. Motykie will carefully close the incisions with removable or absorbable sutures. Experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie MD receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other cities and suburbs in this part of the country for brow lift.
