What does a brow lift do?
Brow lift surgery, sometimes referred to as browplasty or forehead lift, is a popular facial rejuvenation procedure that aims to lift and smooth the brow by removing excess, wrinkled skin. In addition to creating a smoother forehead, brow lift surgery can greatly enhance a patient’s overall facial appearance by raising the eyebrows, lightening a heavy brow, and opening up the eyes for a more awake, refreshed, and happier look. Some of the most common concerns that can be improved or corrected with Houston, TX brow lift surgery include:
- Wrinkled forehead
- Folds and creases on forehead
- Droopy eyelids and eyebrows
- Downturned eyebrows
- Dynamic forehead wrinkles
- Naturally heavy brow
- Descending brow
- Tired or angry appearance
How is a brow lift performed?
There are several brow lift techniques possible today, including the traditional brow lift, endoscopic brow lift, and others. To determine which one may be most appropriate and effective for you, Dr. Brissett will carefully evaluate your anatomy and skin elasticity, discuss your specific concerns and goals, and answer any questions you may have. Generally speaking, brow lift surgery involves making discreet incisions — within the hairline, for example — removing excess skin, and lifting the tissues and features to create a more youthful, natural look.
What’s the best age for a brow lift?
Brow lift surgery is most often performed on patients starting in their 50s and 60s, but it is certainly possible to perform brow lift on younger patients, particularly those who have naturally heavy brows or droopy eyelids and/or those patients in their 30s and 40s who are hoping to “get ahead” of the aging process and slow the progression of a drooping brow.
Will I look fake after brow lift surgery?
It is understandable for patients considering facial plastic surgery to be nervous about how their results will appear. When performed by a highly experienced facial cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Brissett, however, brow lift surgery results can be exceptionally natural-looking and discreet, giving patients a subtle and gorgeous new appearance that keeps them looking like themselves. Using advanced simulation technology, Dr. Brissett can give patients an idea of how their brow lift results may look prior to surgery.
