The inevitable effects of aging

The inevitable effects of aging may show up first in the brow, as deep furrows in the forehead and vertical frown lines between the eyes, even among people as young as the early thirties. Low, sagging eyebrows can cause the eyelids to droop, which can make a person appear tired, older, or present an angry appearance.

Dr. Alexander Sinclair at Sinclair Plastic Surgery can help correct these problems with any of several possible surgical techniques, depending on the extent of the excess skin and wrinkling in the brow. Dr. Sinclair is a board certified plastic surgeon, with a track record of surgical excellence and a focus upon patient care, who has been serving the greater Los Angeles area for more than three decades.

Types of Brow Lifts

Your first step toward a smoother brow and a more youthful facial appearance is to contact our office to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Sinclair. He will listen attentively to your treatment goals and concerns, carefully evaluate your facial structure, answer all your questions, and recommend the best surgical brow lift procedure for you.

Coronal Brow Lift

This safe and widely-used technique involves an incision that runs across the top of the forehead. This procedure is designed to target horizontal forehead wrinkles that make you appear as though you are scowling, when you are not. After the incision is made, the forehead skin is lifted and the surgeon can make any muscle adjustment needed under direct visualization. The scar resulting from this procedure will be well-concealed within the patient’s hair.

Endoscopic Brow Lift

In this technique, the surgeon uses an endoscope (a thin tube with a camera on the end) and special surgical instruments to adjust tissue under the skin through small incisions make in the hair line, correcting visible lines and wrinkles in the forehead. An advantage of this technique is that it requires only a few small incisions. A disadvantage is that the muscle cannot be altered, so scowl lines may return over time.

Temporal or Limited Incision Brow Lift

The temporal brow lift is a more minimal surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the outer one-third of the eyebrows and enlarge the eyes. It involves slightly longer incisions than the endoscopic brow lift. Incisions approximately one-inch in length are made behind the hairline above each temple. Through these incisions, the surgeon can lift and reposition tissue in the outer brow area. Temporal brow lift surgery is often performed in combination with eyelid surgery.

  • Fully training all staff members to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • Appointments will be staggered to avoid congestion in the waiting room.
  • Checking temperatures of every patient that comes into the office.
  • Asking all staff, vendors and ancillary personnel to refrain from coming to the office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Asking every patient to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms and inquiring about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing, as this continues to be the most important mode of prevention.
  • Although it is something that we have always constantly done, we are now doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • Constantly sanitizing all surfaces (which we have always done as an accredited facility).

However, we have now increased this routine and are wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities multiple times each day.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this country even better than it currently is. We are closely monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will update our practice’s guidelines as needed to protect our patients.
