With age, lines and wrinkles inevitably develop on the forehead and between the brows. A brow lift is designed to smooth these creases and restore a youthful, fresh-faced appearance.

What can a brow lift do for you?

  • Restore a pleasant + vibrant expression
  • Create a fresh and youthful overall look
  • Relieve forehead tension
  • Reposition drooping or uneven eyebrows
  • Produce minimal + well-hidden scars
  • Deliver natural-looking results that can endure up to 10 years

Candidates: Are you ready for a brow lift?

For a Houston patient to be considered a candidate for a brow lift, the following characteristics should generally apply:

  • Between 40 and 50 years of age
  • Prominent brow lines and wrinkles
  • Deep furrows between the brows
  • Noticeably drooping eyebrows
  • A perpetually tired, angry or sad expression

In some men and women, these cosmetic effects emerge in their 20s and 30s. In that case, it may be appropriate for a brow lift to be performed on a younger patient.

The Recovery What to expect after your brow lift

Dr. Wiener will take one of two brow lift techniques during surgery: traditional or endoscopic.

Traditional

The traditional brow lift is done under general anesthesia. It involves an incision across the forehead, hidden within the hair line. Through that opening, Dr. Wiener will lift the skin to smooth wrinkles and reposition the brows. To complete the procedure, he will trim away any excess tissue and close the incision with sutures.

Endoscopic

An endoscopic brow lift is also done using general anesthesia, but it involves several small cuts along the hairline rather than one lengthy one. An endoscope is then inserted so that he can visualize your internal structures on a television screen in the operating room. From there, Dr. Wiener will lift the forehead skin and reposition the brows using tiny surgical instruments.

The Recovery What to expect after your brow lift

Physical side effects

Some degree of swelling, bruising, numbness and discomfort are common after an endoscopic or traditional brow lift. You can minimize these effects by taking your pain medication as directed and applying ice packs regularly.

Get plenty of rest

Stay home from work for about 10 days after your brow lift. During that time, you should rest, keep your head elevated, and focus on healing.

Avoid strenuous activity

For optimal healing, it’s important to avoid strenuous activity and vigorous exercise for a full two weeks after surgery.

Gradual results

Your final results will appear gradually as your swelling and bruising subside. And, because all of the incisions were made in the hairline, they will not be visible once you have fully healed.
