Candidates for Brow Lift

A brow lift can help patients of any age who suffer from a low or sagging brow. In some patients, a combination of drooping brows and excess upper eyelid skin causes a pronounced upper eyelid hooding. These patients will benefit most from undergoing both a brow lift and upper eyelid surgery. Many patients choose to combine a brow lift with a facelift at the same time. This a wonderful choice for those who want to restore their full face.

A brow lift enables you to enjoy a refreshed facial appearance. Dr. Foulad’s goal is to give your brow a naturally rejuvenated appearance. During your consultation, he will perform a thorough facial examination to determine your candidacy. Should you be a suitable candidate, he will determine which method will provide the best outcome for your condition. He will also discuss the potential results you can expect to attain and review all details of the procedure with you.

Types of Brow Lifts

A coronal brow lift is one of the oldest techniques of brow lifting and is performed using a long incision within the scalp. The incision extends from ear to ear. Considering the long incision, Dr. Foulad rarely performs this type of brow lift.

A trichophytic brow lift is performed using an incision near the hairline (at the junction between the forehead and scalp). In addition to raising the brow, this technique can also lower the hairline.

An endoscopic brow lift uses much smaller incisions. Usually 4 to 5 small incisions are made at the scalp, in regions that are hidden by hair. Because these incisions are small, a specialized camera on a thin rod is often placed through the incisions in order to aid with visualization during the procedure. Because the incisions are relatively small, Dr. Foulad typically recommends this type of brow lift for most patients.

A temporal brow lift focuses mainly on the outer one-third portion of the brows. This type of lift is also often referred to as a temple lift or lateral brow lift. It helps raise the outer tail of the brow and lift the heaviness at the outer corner of the eyelids. It involves a single small incision at or near the temple at each side of the scalp. This is one of Dr. Foulad’s favorite brow lift brow procedures.

How Brow Lift is Performed

 Temporal (Lateral) Brow Lift
This is the most common brow lift procedure that Dr. Foulad performs, which focuses on lifting the tail of the brows. An incision is made within the hair bearing scalp at or near the temples. The tissues along the temple, forehead, and lateral upper cheek are elevated and secured to a higher position. This is typically performed in a deep plane using an endoscopic camera.
Dr. Foulad usually performs the temporal brow lift under local anesthesia, but can be performed under twilight sedation or general anesthesia if deemed necessary or if the patient prefers.

Full Endoscopic Brow Lift
This is the next most common brow lift procedure performed by Dr. Foulad. This procedure is performed similarly to the temporal brow lift and utilizes the same incisions. However, additional small incisions are used at the scalp to be able to raise the entire length of the brows. Also, the full brow lift is often performed under twilight sedation.

How to Prepare for Brow Lift

In preparation for undergoing brow lift surgery, we need to ensure that you are healthy and optimized for the procedure. Depending on your age, medical history, and complexity of your case, medical evaluation by your primary care provider may be required. Certain medications and supplements might have to be stopped a specific time period prior to the procedure to reduce various risks. You will be provided more comprehensive pre-operative instructions specific to your individual case.

Schedule Your Consultation

Are you ready for a more refreshed and youthful version of yourself? Schedule your consultation with Dr. Foulad today. During this personalized session, you'll have the opportunity to discuss your appearance goals, ask any additional questions, and receive a comprehensive overview of the lateral brow lift process. 

Dr. Foulad and his team are committed to providing you with the information and guidance you need to make an informed decision about your lateral brow lift journey.

We are conveniently located to serve Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, & Los Angeles. However, we are available to help with coordinating your stay if you are an Out-of-Town Patient.

What to Expect After Brow Lift

A thick cotton dressing will be wrapped around your entire head after the procedure, but will be removed the day after. The sutures at the scalp incisions (which are usually not noticeable because they are covered by hair) are removed around 1 week after the procedure.

The duration and intensity of the recovery process varies from patient to patient and depends on the brow lift technique used. Bruising may occur, which typically increases during the first 3 to 4 days. Bruising may involve the lower eyelids. Swelling typically ranges from mild to moderate and is usually most noticeable at the region of the eyebrows and eyelids. By two weeks, sufficient swelling and bruising have reduced that most patients feel comfortable resuming social activities. Patients typically go back to work 1 to 2 weeks after the procedure. However, some patients will elect to go back to work several days after the procedure; this is typically OK for patients who are not worried about their appearance in the work environment and do not have to lift heavy objects.

Pain often ranges from mild to moderate, but can be more severe for some people during the first few days. The pain typically involves the region of the temples. If you develop pain, we provide information regarding the best techniques to alleviate the pain.

There aren’t enough stars for this review to tell you how pleased I am with Dr Foulad, Chelsea and the staff. It was so worth the miles traveled to have my facelift, neck and brow lift. Their attentiveness from the consult all the way through to the aftercare has been amazing. He continues to check in with me 2 months later. His attention to detail and his warm and caring personality made this such an enjoyable experience. I could not believe there was minimal pain and you cannot even see where the stitches were. I feel AND look like a new woman. Judge for yourself with my pictures!
Highly recommend Dr Foulad and his staff

Brow Lift faq

Do I need a brow lift or upper eyelid lift?

If your eyebrows are in the proper position and you just have upper eyelid hooding or excess upper eyelid skin, then an upper eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) would be recommended.

In certain situations, both a brow lift and upper eyelid lift may be recommended. Often times patients present with what they feel is simply extra upper eyelid skin. However, it may be that part of the problem is caused by sagging brows. In this case, an upper eyelid lift would be beneficial but would not achieve as good results as also performing a brow lift.

If I were going to perform a brow lift and upper blepharoplasty at different times, which should I have done first?

I would highly recommend having the brow lift performed first. This is because raising the brows will reduce the heaviness at the upper eyelids and less skin will need to be reduced during the upper blepharoplasty.

Dr.Foulad and his staff are amazing. The results speak for themselves. Dr. Foulad is meticulous. The experience was beyond great. I had a neck lift, a mid face lift and an upper eye lift. Dr. Foulad was very attentive. Chelsea, the practice manager, took care of every detail. I felt at ease and very taken care of. I had prepared myself for a painful surgery and recovery period but it was not like that at all. There was no pain and very little discomfort. It felt more like a well needed vacation. I had all my surgery on a Friday and I saw Dr. Foulad and Chelsea through the weekend. By the following Saturday I was at an important social function and with a little make up, no one could tell I was a week out from surgery. Some people would call this vanity. I disagree. I don’t feel 63. Why should I have to look 63.(or older!) It’s the best thing I ever did for myself. I can't thank Dr. Foulad enough. If you are considering doing this, I beg you to pull the rip cord, take the plunge, whatever you want to call it, but do it! It’s worth it. You’re worth it!

Dr. Foulad performed my facelift and neck lift a few months ago and my results are phenomenal! He is kind, talented, and did beautiful work on my face and neck. He is very honest and takes a lot into consideration when giving his recommendations. He takes so much time to answer your questions and explain everything to you. Everything about my experience was top notch. I have seen other doctors in my past and none of them followed up with me or spent the amount of time with me the way Dr. Foulad has. His staff was also incredibly pleasant and accommodating with me. I can’t recommend Dr. Foulad enough. He genuinely cares deeply about his patients and does excellent work!

Dr. Foulad loves what he does and it shows. He is professional, knowledgeable, skilled, and dedicated to his patients. His "bed manners" are without equal. He follows up on his patients for weeks after surgery, providing timely advice and encouragement. He is honest and upfront about what benefits surgery can provide and he refers to other surgeons procedures that he does not feel comfortable performing.

Dr Foulad is absolutely amazing! He is super patient, takes the time to thoroughly explain all your issues, thoughts, and goals and maps out all of your options without pushing anything whatsoever (if anything he does the opposite and explains everything in depth). He was completely attentive and super eloquent and smart when describing all of the ways he can help heal and preserve my skin and shared a wealth of knowledge. The practice manager Chelsea is patient, kind and super sweet and helpful. I'll definitely be telling my family and friends to become patients of Dr Foulad's practice. He is a perfectionist in the best way possible.

I went to Dr Foulad for Jowl liposuction. Dr Foulad is a very informed facial artist and a master of his craft. I appreciate how delicate he was with my face during the procedure. He paid close attention to every detail of my face, and his effort shows in my results! I highly recommend Dr Foulad for any facial procedure. It’s important to have someone who is invested in your vision as you are, and that is Dr Foulad.

Wow, I am so impressed! From the minute I walked into his office I was warmly greeted by his staff and ushered off for my consult with Dr. Foulad. He was extremely through (I ask a lot of questions) and he was very patient and did not rush me. I followed up the next week for my procedure which I’m thrilled with the outcome and feel so much confident! I’m looking forward to a long relationship with his office and it’s nice because he offers the entire package of treatments, products and procedures to cover all the bases! So no more running around to different offices!
