What is a brow lift / forehead lift? 

Brow Lift Plastic Surgery

What is a brow lift / forehead lift? Brow lift is a time-tested cosmetic surgery procedure that aims to improve fine lines and wrinkles that develop naturally between the brows and on the forehead due to aging or other factors.  

You may look somewhat angry, stressed, or older than your actual age because of the presence of conspicuous horizontal lines on the forehead and small vertical lines between the brows.  

With a brow lift, your surgeon can reduce or remove deep creases and wrinkles between the brows and on the forehead, while repositioning the brow line. Oculoplastic & reconstructive surgeon Dr. Tanya Khan provides safe and proven eye care procedures to patients in Austin, Dallas, Texas, and surrounding communities.  

Candidates for Brow Lift 

Brow lift plastic surgery could be the right choice for you if are bothered by the appearance of droopy brows, a tired or angry look on the face, deep furrows between your brows, visible horizontal lines across your forehead, or heavy upper lids.  

You should not be suffering from an eye infection or another medical condition that could compromise your surgery or healing.  

Customized Surgical Plan 

Your surgeon will use the feedback you provide them during the consultation process to prepare a customized brow lift surgery plan that addresses your unique needs. They will also evaluate your overall health condition and past upper face surgery procedures if any.  

Surgical Procedure 

Brow lift be performed using a traditional surgery approach or as a less invasive endoscopic procedure. The time taken to complete the procedure is usually up to two hours.  

Traditional Brow Lift 

A traditional brow lift may require you to be placed under general anesthesia. Your surgeon will place an incision across the forehead beneath the hairline. They will use this incision to lift and reposition your sagging brows and smooth the lines and wrinkles.  

The surgeon will remove any excess skin to create a tighter upper face appearance. They will close the incision with sutures once the procedure is complete.  

Endoscopic Brow Lift  

This procedure involves the placement of several tiny incisions along your scalp. Your surgeon will insert an endoscope (a small camera) through these incisions to allow them to view the treatment area under the skin on a monitor. 

Thereafter, the surgeon will gently lift your loose forehead skin to eliminate excess muscle tissue that is causing the wrinkles. At this point, your brows will also be repositioned. The surgeon will excise the loose skin and close the incisions with sutures.  

Cosmetic Benefits  

  • Rejuvenated eye and facial appearance 
  • Reduction in the tension of the forehead muscles
  • Enhanced position and definition of the brows 
  • Improved outcomes when the procedure is performed in combination with a facelift or eyelid lift. 
  • Natural looking outcomes, low scarring, fewer risks, faster recovery with an endoscopic brow lift

Recovery  

Following the surgery, your incision sites will be wrapped in bandages. To obtain relief from the initial swelling and discomfort, you can use ice packs in the first 48 hours.  

Your surgeon may prescribe pain medications for the first few days. Ophthalmologist Dr. Tanya Khan receives patients from Austin, Dallas, Texas, and nearby areas for advanced and effective eye care procedures.
