Will a Brow Lift Help me Look More Awake?

Featured Image

Sagging brows can not only make you look grumpy but also make you appear tired. Luckily, a brow lift can make you look more awake and younger. Repetitive facial expressions lead to deep wrinkles across the forehead. Eyebrows start to droop and push your eyelids downward, which can give you an unpleasant, angry expression.

Double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony E. Brissett offers brow lift surgery, called a browplasty or forehead lift, to his patients at Brissett Plastic Surgery. Dr. Brissett is a Houston brow lift specialist who utilizes several different brow lift techniques, such as the endoscopic brow lift. He will meet with you during a consultation to develop a treatment plan that will best fit your unique goals and needs.

With a brow lift surgery, you can look more awake with a younger, refreshed appearance, and less tired and angry. The brow lift can also brighten your face and the region around your eyes.

A brow lift surgery might be a good choice if you have:

  • Creases or excessive folds of skin

  • Droopy eyebrows and eyelids

  • Forehead wrinkles and lines

Patients often choose a bow lift in Houston because it provides a longer solution compared to other treatments, such as BOTOX®.

All about brow lift surgery

Dr. Brissett will perform a brow lift while you are under general anesthesia. The procedure is carried out as an outpatient surgery at a surgical center or hospital. During brow lift surgery, Dr. Brissett will make small incisions behind the eyebrows or hairline.

Common brow lift techniques include the:

  • Open brow lift

  • Endoscopic brow lift

  • Limited incision brow lift

During your consultation, Dr. Brissett will determine which one will best meet your particular needs.

After making the incisions, Dr. Brissett will remove the unwanted, excess skin and then reposition the muscles to create a smoother appearance. The repositioned muscles help smooth away the wrinkles and elevate the eyebrows.

Typically, brow lift surgery takes only around two hours. Following surgery, you can go home to recover. Recovery takes 1 – 3 weeks, but you can return to work and normal life in about two weeks.

Following brow surgery, you may experience bruising, numbness, tightness, and some discomfort. After surgery, Dr. Brissett and his team will discuss recovery with you. You should return for a follow-up visit in a week to have your sutures removed, and we will evaluate the brow lift healing process.

Visible improvements are not always immediate. It will usually take from 4 – 6 months to notice optimal results.

Brow lifts are often ideal for people in their 50s or 60s. Both men and women favor this cosmetic procedure. You can undergo a brow lift at a younger age if you suffer from deep forehand wrinkles or a heavy brow. It is not uncommon for individuals in their 40s to opt for a brow lift. Dr. Brissett will use visual simulation technology to help you decide if brow lift surgery is the right choice for your needs.
