Beverly Hills Brow Lift & Eyelid Surgery with Dr. Gabrielle B. Davis

Eyes are important for multiple reasons. First, they function as our way of viewing the world. As the most noticeable focal point of the face, the eyes function in expressions and communications. As we age, eyebrows can begin to fall, making us appear sad, tired, or even angry. Loose and sagging skin in the eyelid area can make our faces look older and affect eyelid function, hindering vision. 

Fortunately, slowing the signs of aging is possible! Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Gabrielle B. Davis is looking to redefine the term age gracefully. With a safe, effective brow lift and eyelid surgery in Los Angeles, you can begin restoring your youthful appearance.

What is a Beverly Hills Brow Lift?

A brow lift is a facial cosmetic surgery procedure of the upper third of the face. With aging, gravity can cause the eyebrow to fall. In addition, repetitive contraction of the muscles of the upper face can cause wrinkles and fine lines. A brow lift elevates the brows and weakens muscles that lead to fine lines and wrinkles. 

Brow lifts can: 

  • Reduce wrinkles across the forehead, bridge of the nose, and between eyes
  • Improve frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Raise sagging brows that hood upper eyelids
  • Place the eyebrows in an alert and youthful position

What is Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)?

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, aims to eliminate excess eyelid skin and fatty tissue of the upper or lower eyelids. Aging causes the underlying structural tissue to lose its support, causing fat pockets to protrude, puffiness in the upper eyelids, and bags in the lower eyelids. Combined with increased skin laxity, the eyes can develop a tired or sad appearance. Blepharoplasty aims to rejuvenate eyes by repositioning or removing the fat pads and removing the excess skin.

Blepharoplasty creates a fold in the upper eyelid to form natural-looking eyelids. Eyelid surgery can make the eyes appear wider and more awake.

Blepharoplasty can treat:

  • Loose, sagging, upper eyelid skin that impairs vision
  • Fatty deposits that cause puffiness 
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Drooping lower eyelids
  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid
  • Double eyelids

What to Expect During a Brow Lift or Blepharoplasty Procedure

Dr. Davis’ expertise allows her to customize each brow lift and cosmetic eyelid surgery procedure for the patient’s needs. While each cosmetic surgery procedure will have unique details, there are some general steps you can expect during the process:

You will be greeted by the peri-operative team and check in. Dr. Davis will evaluate you, perform her surgical markings, and ensure you are relaxed and comfortable. Once you are safely sedated, Dr. Davis will begin your brow lift or blepharoplasty procedures as determined during your consultation. 

Dr. Davis will make incisions within the hair-bearing region of the head to conceal the scar. This technique is performed endoscopically with a camera and small instruments beneath the skin. Typically, the procedure takes 3 hours.

After surgery, a soft dressing is placed around your scalp. It will be removed 3-4 days after surgery. Bruising and swelling are common after this procedure but will improve gradually. Head elevation and icing the surgical area can help minimize swelling and bruising.

Depending on the severity of the bags or unwanted skin, this procedure may be performed under local or general anesthesia. Dr. Davis will make incisions that are well-concealed in the natural crease of the eyelid. Excess skin and fat are removed. Usually, the procedure takes 2 hours.

For 1 week following surgery, antibiotic ointment is applied to the incisions. The eyes will be bruised and swollen after surgery; however, this will gradually improve. Head elevation and icing the surgical area will help improve these symptoms.

When Will I See My Beverly Hills Brow Lift & Eyelid Surgery Results?

As the treatment site heals and incisions fade, your results will continue to improve. Over the next several months, your final results will appear, giving your forehead a smoother appearance.

Your blepharoplasty in Los Angeles results are long-lasting; however, there is often pain, swelling, and bruising following this surgery that obscure your results.
