BRIGHT, RADIANT EYES & BROWS BY DR. RICHLAND.
If your eyes are the windows to your soul, your brows are the frames to your emotions. A brow lift, also called a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure designed to lift and tighten the upper 1/3 of your face and rejuvenate your periorbital region. Additionally, a brow lift can help open up your eyes, restore the natural shape and position of your eyebrows and decrease the appearance of forehead wrinkles. Dr. Brandon Richland strives to deliver the best brow lift Newport Beach has to offer. There are several types of brow lifts, the most popular being the endoscopic brow lift or endobrow. Brow Lift surgery is closely related to and often combined with eyelid surgery and facelift surgery to rejuvenate the entire face.
Exploring Your Candidacy
As part of the natural aging process, forehead wrinkles begin to appear, and your eyebrows may begin to fall. This creates excess upper eyelid skin, which may fold down over your eyes, and also creates the illusion that your eyes aren’t open as wide anymore.
In some instances, you may be subconsciously raising your eyebrows in an attempt to open your eyes wider, which only exacerbates the forehead wrinkles further. If you have excess upper eyelid skin or lower eyelid bags, you may wish to combine the brow lift with eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty. If you have sagging tissues in the lower face and neck or “jowls”, you may wish to combine the brow lift with a facelift and neck lift.

BROW LIFT OPTIONS
In this procedure, an incision is made directly over the eyebrows to remove a crescent of skin and tissue. This technique works best for males with prominent eyebrows as the incision can be hidden between the upper eyebrows and the forehead skin.
In this technique, the incision is made between the upper forehead and hairline. This type of brow lift is best for females who have a long forehead (>6cm) and wish to advance their hairline forward.
This minimally invasive brow lift uses hidden incisions within the hair to restore the youthful shape, contour, and position of your eyebrows, as well as decrease forehead wrinkles. Dr. Richland additionally uses a specialized technique to internally weaken the muscles responsible for “frown lines” to soften these vertical lines between your eyebrows. The endoscopic brow lift is commonly paired with upper eyelid surgery to correct excess hooding of the upper eyelid skin and restore a rejuvenated appearance.
Since a brow lift is closely related to eyelid surgery and facelift, Dr. Richland will explain which procedure or combination of procedures may be best for your specific goals and develop a unique treatment plan based on this.

An endobrow, also known as an endoscopic brow lift, is a minimally invasive technique that utilizes a small internal endoscopic camera for precise visualization. The entire surgery is performed internally through several small incisions that are hidden in the hair. The eyebrows and forehead tissues are appropriately elevated, repositioned, and then held in place by various anchoring techniques. This is Dr. Richland’s favorite brow lift technique for patients who are a candidate.
Yes, a brow lift can help open your eyes more if the cause is from sagging eyebrows or hooded eyelid skin. If the cause is from a low eyelid, called eyelid ptosis, where the eyelash margin of your eyelid begins to fall down over your pupil, then you would additionally need an eyelid ptosis surgery.
Crow’s feet is a term given to the wrinkles on the sides of your eyes. Since the brow lift is designed to elevate your lateral eyebrows and lateral periorbital tissues, it will help soften crow’s feet. When combined with Botox, a powerful rejuvenating effect is achieved.
A brow lift can help alleviate hooded upper eyelid skin by elevating the eyebrow tissues above. However, a brow lift is usually combed with a blepharoplasty to achieve the desired result and fully rejuvenate the upper periorbital region.
If you have mild to moderate forehead wrinkles, the wrinkles may completely disappear after surgery. If you have thicker forehead lines, these will soften but not completely go away. Most patients get very good improvement and softening of the forehead wrinkles.
