A Santa Ana Forehead and Brow Lift is a great option for those who feel that their overall image has been changed due to drooping eyebrows or a furrowed forehead. These changes can often occur with age as the elasticity and collagen content of skin decreases. This can leave an individual feeling less confident when out in public, less beautiful in general and with an overall look of stress, anger or fatigue. Santa Ana Forehead and Brow lifts can be combined with other cosmetic surgery procedures, such as a facelift of eyelid surgery, at our Orange County-based cosmetic surgery center.
Santa Ana Forehead lifts must be performed under general anesthesia because they are a surgical procedure. Our twice-board certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Tavoussi, uses the Pacifica Outpatient Surgery Center for forehead and brow lifts because it is located conveniently close to our Newport Beach location, provides a safe and secure experience, has state-of-the-art surgical suites and has a full staff of experienced anesthesiologists and registered nurses for surgical and post-operative care.
Following either type of surgery, the patient will be transferred to a post-operative area for a period of recovery from anesthesia. During this time, ACLS-trained nurses will monitor the patient for any complications and will provide instructions for at home. A Santa Ana Forehead lift is a same-day procedure, and patients will return home within the next couple of hours. Patients should plan to rest for the next two to three days with the head elevated.
