Brow Lift Plastic Surgery in Riverside, California

Many people seek brow lift surgery to correct the appearance of frown lines, which are deep vertical furrows between the eyebrows that cause us to look worried or stressed out. Another common reason for brow lift surgery is to correct a sagging forehead or brows that hang too low and too close to the eyes, creating an overly tired appearance.

By surgically lifting the brow or forehead, Riverside plastic surgeon Dr. Childers can create a more youthful and rested appearance to the upper face, helping you to look years younger.

Brow Lift Plastic Surgery Procedure Information

Brow lift surgery is done on an outpatient basis either under general anesthesia or monitored sedation. The incisions are usually made behind the hairline. For patients with high foreheads, the incisions can be placed in front of the hairline. The operation is done using an endoscope (a narrow hollow instrument with a fiber optic light source and camera, through which the procedure is done with small special instruments.) The forehead skin is lifted and repositioned and muscles that cause frown lines are weakened. Patients return home with dressings that are usually removed on the first or second day after surgery.

After Brow Lift Plastic Surgery

Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. Sutures are removed within 10 days, and most swelling and bruising is gone in 7 to 10 days.

Complementary Plastic Surgery Procedures

Additional procedures that may enhance the result of a forehead lift are Lower and/or Upper Eyelid Lift, Facelift, or other facial procedures or implants.

Browlift surgery is considered cosmetic and is therefore not covered by insurance.

The specific risks and the suitability of the forehead lift procedure can be determined only during your free consultation with Inland Empire plastic surgeon Dr. Childers. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk, but major complications are unusual.
