Brow Lift in San Diego, CA

Brow lift surgery (also called a forehead lift or browplasty) is a popular plastic procedure that helps create a higher brow appearance, which offers a more youthful look to the upper section of the face. A drooping brow can often cause an angry or tired appearance. A browplasty surgically improves a drooping brow to create a rejuvenated face by removing excess skin, while raising the eyebrows. Dr. Jose Rodriguez is a Board Eligible Plastic Surgeon in San Diego, CA who has completed brow lifts on both women and men to give them a younger look. Dermal fillers and BOTOX are frequently used in combination with brow lift surgery at Rodriguez Plastic Surgery for best results, creating a softer and smoother look.

Prior to surgery, anesthesia will be given to the patient. This may be done through IV sedation or general anesthesia depending on the complexity of the surgery. The incision used during a brow lift is determined based on the severity of skin sag, if the forehead is affected, and the position of the patient's hairline. Some of the many techniques to consider:

  • Traditional Incision
    Also called the open brow lift incision, this places the surgical incision at the top of the head behind the hairline. This incision not only conceals scarring, it provides a certain degree of controlled lifting during the surgery. The open incision is good for those with both a sagging brow and frown lines. This is the better technique for patients who are concerned about a receding hairline.
  • Trichophytic Incision
    The trichophytic incision is placed directly against the hairline. A trichophytic incision allows significant lift in the brow for men and women who have low risk for hairline recession.
  • Lateral Brow Lift
    Also known as a temporal brow lift, this method starts the incision in the hairline just above the temples. The lateral incision permits the outer parts of the brow to be lifted, and is best for sagging that is present in the outer brows. The lateral technique also helps to smooth Crow’s feet.
  • Endoscopic Forehead Lift
    The endoscopic lift is a more modern technique employed in browplasty surgery. It makes several tiny incisions in the hairline and inserts the endoscope, which moves to the area of the eyebrow to release its attached tools. Using the endoscope's camera, the brow tissue is suspended with stitches to lift the brow in its higher position.
