As we age, it is unavoidable that the body begins to show signs of the passing years.
These symptoms often appear most prominently in the most exposed areas, such as the face and specifically the forehead. As the noticeable signs of aging begin to etch into our faces, we start to wonder how others see us.
We grow self-conscious about our appearance and wonder if there is a way to turn back the clock. Is it possible to achieve natural-looking results? We believe that with an expert brow lift in Beverly Hills years can be shed from your appearance.
Dr. Ritu Chopra and Dr. Andrew Ordon and their team of medical professionals are ready to leverage their years of experience and expertise to offer you a solution to the age-old challenge of growing older. For decades, we have developed a reputation for being among the country's most trusted plastic surgery practices. This reputation is particularly manifest with our work performing brow lifts.
The forehead's skin is often one of the first places that patients notice a decrease in volume and the effects of gravity, sunlight, and exposure. As we grow older and aging sets in, the brows start to travel down. The distance between the eyebrows and eyelashes often shortens when the skin and soft tissues lose elasticity. You can look tired, angry, or sad because of the lower position of the eyebrows. When you have observed a rise in fine lines and wrinkles across your forehead, a brow lift might be the right option for you.
If your upper eyelids' overhang or hooding reaches past the corner of your eyes, then you are probably a good candidate for a brow lift. The shape of your eyebrows is another indicator; a brow lift will help restore a youthful arch if they are flat or the tail is even lower than the central part of the brow. The eyebrows can be treated by a brow lift and a refreshed, youthful look can be restored. If the brow line itself has started to sag or the eyes look 'fatigued' due to puffy or heavy eyelids, it should also be a concern.
Many patients express how excess skin and wrinkles in the forehead not only make them look older than they feel but cause their expression to look angry, sad, or bitter. Patients worried about frown lines, furrowed brows, and wrinkles across the forehead often seek out the expert Beverly Hills brow lift surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Institute after trying numerous creams, diets, and vitamins to no avail.
The brow lift, sometimes also referred to as the forehead lift, is specifically designed to alter the brow's appearance by removing excess skin and tightening the brow to eliminate wrinkles and fine lines. A brow lift removes the excess skin and fat, raises up the brow and forehead, and softens the skin.
In some patients, the forehead's prominent lines may be the result of muscles in addition to excess skin. If this is the case, muscle groups can be addressed individually, and extra muscles can be trimmed to leave a smoother and more youthful forehead. While we encounter many patients seeking a brow lift from the Plastic Surgery Institute, it is not uncommon to encounter much younger patients as well as those well into life. We can safely perform the brow lift in most healthy individuals and strive to bring all of our patients the best results possible.
While many believe that dermal fillers and the brow lift create the same effect, a brow lift is the only long-term way to address the forehead's skin and muscles. Dermal fillers work by merely adding excess volume to mask the symptoms, while a brow lift literally removes the problem assuring patients that the problem will not return.
Dermal fillers are artificial, and because they are a foreign element, they are eliminated by the body's natural waste disposal system. This means that to maintain the results provided by dermal fillers, patients must return for treatments every several months and can expect further treatments for as long as they wish to maintain the effects on their forehead.

Dr. Ritu Chopra and Dr. Andrew Ordon, the talented and world-renowned cosmetic surgeons, are quickly making waves in the field of plastic surgery for their quality service and expertise. Contact us today for a consultation and one of the best brow lifts Beverly Hills has to offer.
The area of the face being operated on is the most significant difference between these two techniques. In the upper regions of the face, a brow raise focuses on the skin and places, while in the lower part of the face, a facelift focuses on the skin.
Facelifts involve your face and your neck's midsection. The goal of a facelift is to reduce wrinkles and tighten the skin. A brow lift is a way to go if you're trying to firm up the front and parts between your eyebrows. However, before having some sort of operation performed, you should always check with your doctor.
Most of our applicants for a brow lift are between the ages of 40 and 65. But younger patients who may have a hereditary propensity to a heavy brow or deep "worry lines" between the brows may consider undergoing the procedure.
It helps to be in good general health and a non-smoker beforehand, as with any form of surgery. If in doubt, please inform your surgeon well in advance of surgery regarding any pre-existing medical conditions-it that can make the difference between your ability to get a brow raise or opt for less invasive alternatives.
Because this procedure can be a minimally invasive surgery, there is not anything you have to do before your appointment. Our plastic surgeon will review with you your current drugs and decide whether before your operation you need to miss a particular pill or prescription.
You should expect to see results in a few weeks once your treatment is complete. Eventually, any swelling or bruising will subside to expose a tighter and more youthful-looking forehead. Immediately after the operation, the plastic surgeon will explain what you can do. Generally, for as long as your doctor suggests, you should stop heavy physical exercise.
The effects of a brow lift can last 10 to 12 years in several cases. For some patients, a brow lift can last longer, depending on the surgeon performing the procedure. Moreover, how long a patient enjoys the full benefits of a brow lift operation can be affected by the natural aging process, lifestyle, and other factors.
No matter what brought you here, a visit with our doctors will bring out the best in you. Call us today to schedule your initial consultation, either in person or online.
