Brow Lifts: Treatment Options and Procedures

Offered at Our Houston Office By Doctor Cara Downey

Brow Lift - Downey Plastic SurgeryTo eliminate wrinkles, creases, and lines on your forehead and elevate the position of your brow, you might consider getting a brow lift. A brow lift, also called a forehead lift, tightens and lifts these parts of the body, making a person appear younger. There are several methods depending on the degree of deformity. Options include endoscopic brow lift, direct brow lift (in conjunction with an upper eyelid surgery), temporal brow lift or pretrichial (along the hairline).

Am I a Candidate for a Brow Lift?

Candidates for such operations should be in good health and should be nonsmokers. They must be able to afford the considerable costs, too, which include surgical fees, anesthesia fees, and the price of medications and medical tests. After all, it’s unlikely that your health insurance company will cover any of these fees.

What Happens During a Brow Lift?

A brow lift begins with a consultation, during which you’ll discuss with a surgeon your past surgeries, current medical conditions, allergies, and medications, and your reasons for wanting a lift. Your surgeon will then measure and photograph your face extensively, review your options, and notify you of risks. Those risks include blood clots, infections, bleeding, scarring, loss of skin, nerve damage, numbness, itching, dry eyes, pain, swelling, and loose eyelids. Ask any questions that you may have about these risks, as you’ll be required to sign consent forms.

Brow Lifts Generally Proceed as Follows:

First, a doctor administers either a general anesthetic or an intravenous sedative. If brow position and forehead deformity is minimal to moderate, a direct brow lift (using an incision in the upper lid) or an endoscopic brow lift (4 cm incisions behind the hairline in the temle region of the scalp) may be performed. More severe deformities may necessitate larger incision either along the hairline or within the scalp. In addition, your surgeon might tape or wrap your forehead in order to suppress bruising and swelling.

Is There a Long Recovery?

If performed alone in a healthy patient, you may be able to go home that same day. Bruising and swelling can be expected for up to several weeks to months following the procedure. Temporary numbness and tingling in the area is common and in rare occasions can be permanent.
