While aging occurs throughout the body, signs of aging in the upper portion of the face can sometimes be the most noticeable. This portion of the face serves as the natural focal point when someone else looks at you. Furthermore, the brow area serves as a strong indicator of emotion. As the brows begin to droop and forehead and glabellar lines set in, these effects of aging can make the face appear angry when at rest. Brow lift surgery offers patients with such concerns the ability to effectively turn back the clock to a more youthful and approachable appearance. The board-certified surgeons at The Clinic for Plastic Surgery are here to help patients realize natural-looking facial rejuvenation by offering some of the best brow lifts Houston has to offer.
Brow lift surgery addresses several aging-related concerns in the upper face. Patients can reverse brow sagging, deep lines on the forehead, drooping upper eyelids, and brow furrows simultaneously.
Not only will you look younger, but you will look friendlier and more energetic. As our Houston brow lift surgery offers significant facial rejuvenation, you can expect to experience a substantial increase in self-confidence and excitement for all that life has to offer.
Candidates for brow lift surgery are adults of either sex who would like to address skin laxity in the upper portion of the face.
Candidates should be generally healthy and have realistic expectations for their procedure, recovery, and results. It is also essential that patients considering a brow lift can take ample time off from work to recover from surgery. There is no strict rule regarding the ideal age to get a brow lift. While many patients are in their 40s and 50s, younger patients may also be candidates.
To provide the utmost comfort and safety during your surgery, your Houston plastic surgeon will first administer general anesthesia.
Once your anesthesia has taken effect, your surgeon will begin your brow lift procedure. Endoscopic brow lift surgery at The Clinic for Plastic Surgery allows for the smallest possible incisions. Your surgeon will make three to four of these tiny incisions along your hairline, where you will be able to conceal them easily after they heal. Then, via one of these incisions, your surgeon will insert an endoscope to view the treatment area's underlying structures.
Your surgeon will meticulously lift and shift your skin to a more youthful position and may remove small muscles contributing to your concerns. Your surgeon will close your incisions, trimming away excess skin, and dress your incisions. As soon as you wake up from anesthesia, you will be able to head home to heal. Before your surgery, you will need to arrange for a close friend or relative to drive you home and provide care for 24 hours after your procedure.
Recovery from brow lift surgery is short and involves minimal side effects, with most patients returning to work within three to seven days. You are likely to experience bruising, swelling, and discomfort while you heal, but you can expect these minor side effects to resolve quickly.
Your surgeon will also prescribe medication to alleviate any pain while you are recovering. You will be able to apply makeup safely within three or four days of your surgery, and you will need revisit our office in one week to have your stitches removed. Your surgeon will also assess your progress at your appointment and advise you regarding your recovery steps going forward. Most patients can return to their regular activities at this time. You can expect to resume strenuous activities within three weeks of your procedure.
You will realize the full extent of your results as soon as you heal. Your brow lift results are permanent. Although a brow lift cannot prevent you from aging, it can essentially reset the clock so that you will always appear younger than you would without a brow lift.

Two weeks before your surgery, you should avoid NSAIDs and other substances that may thin the blood. You may also pick up your prescribed pain medication before your surgery so that it will be available to you immediately after your procedure.
Absolutely! While there are many procedures you can include in your surgery, one of the most common additions to brow lift surgery is blepharoplasty, which removes excess tissue from the upper eyelid to achieve a more youthful and wide-awake appearance.
