A brow lift or forehead lift reverses the effects of gravity and tightens the soft tissues of the forehead to restore a more youthful contour to your forehead and eyebrows. As one ages, it is common for the brow to take on a flat or horizontal position. Additionally, the skin in the forehead can become quite wrinkled after many years of expression. If a sagging brow or lined forehead inhibits your facial expression, a brow lift is a time-tested method for rejuvenating the upper third of your face.

- You have frown lines or furrows between the eyebrows or across the top of your nose
- You have excess skin or fatty tissue hanging over your eyes
- If you are unable to apply makeup on the upper eyelid because the surface area is concealed by drooping brows as you have aged.

Recovery and Healing:
Your recovery will vary depending on which brow lift procedure Dr. Marcus chooses for your tailored surgical plan. In either case, you will have stitches that will need to be removed in about a week after surgery.
If you have temporary fixation screws, your surgeon will remove them in about two weeks. These fixtures are installed behind the hairline to hold the elevated brow in place.
After a brow lift, it is quite normal to experience some swelling and bruising. Often the swelling and bruising can affect parts of your face that were not directly addressed, including your cheeks and eyes. The swelling should start to subside a few days after the procedure and be gone about a week or two after your surgery.
For at least two days after the surgery, Dr. Marcus advises his patients to keep their heads elevated and gently apply ice packs to help ease the bruising and swelling.
During your entire recovery period and beyond, Dr. Marcus and his staff are at your service. If you have any questions or concerns that arise, we will give you a rapid and effective solution. By caring for his patients long after surgery is over, Dr. Marcus delivers among the best brow lift Los Angeles has available.
After a few weeks, you will notice a significant decrease in swelling, bruising, or other visible side effects, causing your results to be much more apparent. Once you have completely healed, you will enjoy your new, revitalized, and youthful appearance.
Your forehead will look naturally smooth and wrinkle free, and the repositioned eyebrows will allow the face to appear brighter, refreshed and more appealing. Because the incisions are made behind the hairline, there will be no visible scarring once healed.
