Overview of Surgical and Non-Surgical Brow Procedures in the Los Angeles Area

The effects of aging are inevitable. The brow and forehead are usually the first areas that show the signs of aging. The skin loses its elasticity due to several factors. This can be because of the wind, sun, and pull of gravity– all of which can affect the face, and this leads to wrinkling across the forehead or frown lines. There can also be an increasing heaviness in their eyebrows. People in their early thirties can also have facial features that make them look years older than their real age. If you are a person who is mistaken as being angry, tired, or sad because of your appearance, you may want to consider a forehead lift.

How Brow Lifts Work

The main difference between the different options for forehead lifting is the placement of the incision. The newest approach known as the “endoscopic surgery,” requires several small incisions that are placed behind the hairline, and a scope is utilized to assist during the procedure. If done properly, there are fewer side effects experienced – this includes a smaller risk of numbness and a faster recovery time.

Another technique uses longer incisions. This is done to lift the eyebrow and the location is determined by the specialist after a thorough assessment and discussion with the patient.

Aside from the usual benefits of raising the brow and smoothing the forehead, this can also lower the hairline, while improving facial balance and harmony. This procedure usually takes between 1-2 hours, and it’s usually done under twilight anesthesia or IV sedation.

Who are good Candidates for a Brow Procedure?

Those who belong in these categories are ideal candidates for brow lift surgery:

– Those who are physically healthy.
– Those who don’t smoke.
– Those who have realistic goals and a positive outlook in life.

As we age, wrinkle lines may appear on the forehead, and frown lines between the brows could make a person look “too serious” or even angry when they’re not. Skin relaxation can also cause the brows to drop, or hood the upper eyelids making the person look tired. For these people, a brow lift procedure may be ideal.

Choose a Surgeon You Trust

Brow lift surgery comes with several choices, and because of that, it’s very important to choose a licensed plastic surgeon to ensure your safety during and after the procedure. Dr. Nguyen is one of the best surgeons in Beverly Hills, and with his skills and expertise, you’ll be able to have a younger-looking face.

“Dr. Nguyen is a very kind person; He has a lot of patience. I had four surgeries with him and each one of them came out better than the other. I feel that Dr. Nguyen became more than a doctor to me, he became a friend and that is what makes it easy on each procedure.” – Adi M.

What to Expect After Brow Lift Surgery

After a forehead lift surgery, bruising and swelling within a 10-day period is completely normal. For some patients, they also experience swelling, not only on their forehead, but also around the eye and cheek area. Following surgery, it’s important to keep the head well-elevated to reduce swelling. While the incisions heal, it’s common to experience some numbness and itchiness. Don’t worry; these side effects will diminish gradually.

After 10 days, the sutures will be removed. In situations where bandages have been used, these will be removed 1-3 days after the procedure. It’s very important to follow the advice of the medical practitioner closely to ensure a smooth recovery process. For most patients, the recovery time does not exceed two weeks, but it’s still recommended to stay away from strenuous activities during the recovery period. If you experience bruising, this can easily be concealed with the help of makeup.

Sometimes, a brow lift is combined with eyelid tucks (Blepharoplasty), or a facelift for a more harmonious rejuvenation.

Facial plastic surgery makes it possible to fix any facial flaw, as well as signs of premature aging. This can result in an increase in self-confidence and feeling of well-being.

Dr. Nguyen is truly an artist! I see him for injectables (as well as my husband) and get botox and fillers. It looks so natural that when I tell my close friends they're shocked and don't even believe I had anything done. He's very kind, patient and has such a beautiful fancy office and friendly staff. It truly is such a pleasure going to see him and always leave his chair feeling more youthful and confident. Highly recommend him for any surgical or non-surgical procedures!!

I was considering some top Beverly Hills plastic surgeons--and while they were all skilled, I wasn't confident until I met Dr. Nguyen. When I saw how artistic, meticulous and caring he is--he was my only choice. He is the perfect combination of brilliant surgeon, compassionate doctor and artist. Every single detail in his practice is like being in a 5 star hotel. Most importantly, every person who works with him is gracious, warm, and 5 steps ahead of anything you need. Dr. Natalie, Gaby, Van and Jessica are so lovely, gentle, positive and reassuring --they may be actual angels. As for the results, I look 10-20 years younger (depending on the day) and very natural. I am super open about telling my friends and clients what I've done, when they remark on how much better I look. Whenever I find someone or something amazing--it should be shared!! When people find out what I did, and how natural it looks---ALL of them want Dr. Nguyen's number. This is a complete rave review, and if you become one of Dr. Nguyen's lucky clients--you will be writing one too. I recommend Dr. Nguyen and everyone who works for him with unlimited gratitude and enthusiasm.

Our Philosophy

We feel that the approach to facial plastic surgery by both patient and doctor should be a conservative one, and the result should appear natural and balanced.

There are several core philosophical principles that drive our practice. We feel that the approach to facial plastic surgery by both patient and doctor should be a conservative one. We feel that results should appear natural and balanced so that a patient looks like the best version of his or herself, not a bizarre approximation of someone else. We believe that the best outcomes are achieved when a patient and surgeon share a common objective and when there is consensus regarding aesthetic taste. We encourage a holistic approach to anti-aging because true youthfulness requires a combination of attitude, physical well being, as well as appearance.

While facial plastic surgery is often pursued to restore a youthful appearance, its results are most effective when a patient is vigilant about preserving mind, body, and spirit alike. Last, and perhaps most importantly, we believe that each of our patient’s needs is unique and that their course of treatment should reflect that of uniqueness. We strive to give the utmost in personalized care and service. From your first phone call to our office through your final follow-up visit, you will be given the time and attention needed to help you realize your individual aesthetic goals.
