Brow Lift Surgery
Dr. Golshani and his team will make sure you're comfortable on the day of your surgery. You'll be given anesthesia to ensure you're not in any pain during your brow lift. Once you're under anesthesia and in the operating room, Dr. Golshani will start the procedure.
Brow lifts can be done endoscopically or through a coronal incision. During an endoscopic procedure, several small incisions will be made in your forehead and a small camera on a tube, called an endoscope, will be placed through the incisions so that the doctor can see the tissue and muscle in your forehead. A coronal incision brow lift is done by making a long incision that runs from ear-to-ear along your hairline. The incision will be made just behind your hairline so that your scar will be hidden. Your forehead skin will then be lifted. After either type of incision, the doctor will adjust the tissues and muscles in your forehead to lift your entire forehead and brow area. Your incision will be closed once the desired lift has been achieved.
