Brow Lift in West Hollywood, CA
Everyone wants to stay looking young for as long as they can. Cosmetic surgery can turn back the clock and make you look rejuvenated. If the area around your eyes or forehead is beginning to sag and wrinkle, consider having a brow lift performed at SoCal Aesthetic Surgery in West Hollywood, CA, with Dr. Homer Hojjat, MD.
What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift gives several benefits and can accomplish the following:
- Improves the appearance of the area around the brow (frown lines), making it look more youthful.
- Results that last for approximately ten years.
- Can be performed alongside other procedures like eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty).
- Improves poor vision due to sagging brows.
- Creates a pleasant resting facial expression for your upper face.
- Improves approachability.
- Increases self-confidence.
The surgeon can use the traditional (or “coronal”) technique or the endoscopic technique (a minimally invasive version of the procedure).
Candidates for Forehead Lift Surgery
If the area around your upper eyelids is sagging and creating wrinkles at the corners of your eyelids, you are a likely good candidate for this procedure. Not only is a brow lift surgery a good idea for cosmetic reasons, but sagging eyelids can impair your vision. Candidates should be in good health and must have realistic expectations.
Schedule a consultation
Your Brow Lift Surgery Consultation
You will consult with Dr. Hojjat and his highly skilled staff before scheduling your procedure. During this meeting, you can tell him what you would like to change about your brow and forehead area.
He will examine you and make suggestions for improving the look of your forehead. The two of you will work as a team to decide what procedure will best improve the appearance of your brow area.
Be sure to answer any questions the doctor has for you in an honest and straightforward way. Also, be sure that Dr. Hojjat has access to your medical history and a list of any medications you may be taking.
The consultation appointment is also a good time to voice any concerns you may have about the procedure. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Hojjat and his staff will honestly answer your questions and set your mind at ease about the plastic surgery.
Preparing for the Brow Lift Procedure
Dr. Hojjat’s office will give you instructions on how to prepare for your surgery. Please follow all instructions in the letter to ensure the best results.
Brow lift surgery is an outpatient procedure. You will be released from surgery the day your procedure is completed. A general anesthetic is typically used for the surgery (though local anesthesia and sedation can also be used), so you won’t feel anything and will be unconscious during the procedure itself.
The length of the surgery depends on the nature of your procedure and the techniques that will be used. Browlift by itself will generally take an hour. Some people choose to have other facial procedures done in conjunction with their brow lift, which adds time to the surgery. The staff will be able to give you an approximate time your surgery will be finished.
You will need to have someone come with you to the surgery. They may wait comfortably in the waiting area for your surgery to be completed. You will be groggy after your procedure, so you will need to have someone drive you home.
Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing to the office so you can easily get dressed after the surgery is completed.
The Forehead Reduction Procedure
Depending on the specific technique he plans to use (coronal or endoscopic brow lift), Dr. Hojjat will likely make a series of tiny incisions along the hairline. He will then move the skin and muscles during the lifting procedure to smooth the area out.
Excess skin and fat will be taken from your forehead in order to lift the brows, and the area will be sutured at or in the hairline where it will be unnoticeable. After this procedure is complete, you will be taken to the recovery area and later released to go home.
Recovering After a Brow Lift
Be sure to follow your physician’s instructions and get lots of rest after your procedure. During the first two days after the surgery, you will be allowed to shower and move around the house. Be extra careful around the surgical site when showering.
One week after surgery you may return to work with the doctor’s permission. You have just had surgery, so you may wish to return on a limited basis, as you may tire easily. If you still have bruises, you can use makeup to cover them up.
One to two weeks after surgery you shouldn’t need pain medication anymore. If this is the case, you will be allowed to drive again.
Between two and four weeks after surgery, your doctor may release you to engage in more physical activity and allow you to resume your exercise routine.
Frequently Asked Questions about Brow Lifts
There will be some discomfort following the surgical procedure. As long as you follow post-surgical instructions, your brow lift discomfort can be kept to a minimum. You will be prescribed medication to help you through the first few days after surgery.
You may feel like your skin is tighter around the area of the surgery due to swelling. But usually, brow lift patients don’t feel a large amount of pain. Soon you will no longer feel discomfort and will have a new and revitalized look for your efforts.
You will be able to work or return to school in between 7-10 days. Bruising and swelling should be minimal within 7-10 days. At that time your face will look mostly back to normal, but much more youthful.

Brow lift results are long-lasting, but they don’t last forever. To maintain your results, you should:
