Brow lift surgery can rejuvenate your facial appearance by releasing forehead wrinkles and lifting sagging eyebrows. These common signs of aging often cause patients to appear tired, angry, or worried. To find out if a brow lift in San Diego can help you regain a more alert and youthful countenance, schedule a consultation with double-board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Balikian.
Types of Brow Lift Surgery
Dr. Balikian is experienced in multiple brow lift techniques. He will choose the optimal approach for achieving your treatment goals. Common brow lift types include:
- Endoscopic Brow Lift – This popular type of brow lift is minimally invasive. Dr. Balikian will first make several small incisions under your hair. He will then insert a small endoscope with a camera in one of the incisions. The camera view helps him locate the tissues and muscles he will alter. A second tool will then be inserted into a separate incision and is used to reposition the brow tissues.
- Temporal Brow Lift – The temporal brow lift is a good option for patients who are primarily concerned with correcting heavy upper eyelids, especially out to the sides. It is often paired with an upper blepharoplasty. Results will be noticeable, though more subtle than with other brow lift types.
- Trichophytic Brow Lift – This brow lift can dramatically improve the appearance of the upper face. Long incisions will be made just behind the hairline above the forehead. The skin of the forehead can then be lifted, so excess skin can be trimmed away. Dr. Balikian will remove enough skin to raise the eyebrows into a more youthful position while still preserving your natural look.
Candidacy for a Brow Lift
Dr. Balikian considers many factors when determining if you are a good candidate for a brow lift. To start, you will want to schedule a consultation, so he can examine your upper face and speak with you about your goals for treatment.
In some cases, non-surgical treatments, such as Botox, may be sufficient to address creases and furrows in the upper face. In other cases, a brow lift may be combined with a blepharoplasty or facelift to achieve your desired look.
As an experienced facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Balikian knows the range and limitations of numerous facial procedures, including brow lifts. The more candid you are about your expectations and the look you want to achieve, the more precise he can be with your treatment plan and results.
Brow Lift Recovery
The length of your recovery period following your brow lift in San Diego will depend on several factors like the type of brow lift procedure performed. Swelling, bruising, and some discomfort are to be expected. These issues will subside over the next few days. Patients can resume most of their normal activities after a week or so of recovery.

He was nice and competent
I have been seeing Dr. Balikian for over 12 years. His results are always “natural” and not “pulled” or “exaggerated” like many other plastic surgeons mistakenly do to their patients. He has the skill and the aesthetic eye for beautiful results every single time. His office staff is friendly and helpful.
