About Brow Lift Surgery
Over time, natural aging can change the appearance of your face. A browlift also called a forehead lift or browplasty is a cosmetic procedure at Plastic Surgery of Houston that addresses signs of aging, such as creases, expression lines, and wrinkles in the forehead and eyebrows. Houston, TX board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jay Shenaq, can lift the brows and smooth forehead wrinkles with an incision within your hairline, and this surgery can give you a more youthful and energetic appearance. We offer advanced, minimally invasive techniques to help you achieve your aesthetic goals, boost your self-esteem, and make you look more like you feel. Depending on the extent of the lift needed, this procedure can be done in conjunction with a facelift or eyelid lift.
"I met Dr Shenaq when my best friend had breast cancer. He took so much time to carefully explain the procedure to her. I was so impressed with this surgeon that when I came down with breast cancer in my left breast I immediately made my appointment with Dr. Shenaq. I had a double skin sparing mastectomy with reconstruction, and yes this plastic surgeon did a phenomenal job! Dr. Shenaq and his staff took such good care of me, they are very understanding, and really care about you. I could not be happier with the outcome of my surgery. Westside surgical center is where my surgery took place. If you want phenomenal patient care, this is the place to be. Dr. Shenaq with his particular care, really made me look and feel good about myself quickly."- L.M. / Yelp / Nov 03, 2015
"I was introduced to Dr. Shenaq after being diagnosed w/ breast cancer. I had a unilateral mastectomy & my remaining 'good' breast was equipped with a 23 year old implant. Dr. Shenaq definitely had his work cut out for him to fix me up & make me look symmetrical again. Not only did he replace what the cancer had taken, he fixed the good breast with a new implant. This man is a genius and an absolute perfectionist! His caring nature is unmatched. I look better now than before my diagnosis!"- S. / Healthgrades / May 29, 2018
"I had my Breast Cancer in 2011 Dr.Shenaq was the one who helped me with all my fears he said “your going to be just fine” he reconstructed me by taking my belly fat and used that to reconstruct my breast. I had a double mastectomy and people are still amazed at his excellent work. Thank you so much Dr.Shenaq.?"- M.F. / Facebook / Feb 27, 2018

"Dr. Shenaq and his staff have been a Godsend! Dr. Shenaq is doing my reconstruction surgery after a cancer diagnosis. He has been awesome! On my first visit he consulted with my husband and I until we had no more questions or concerns. He made sure I understood what was being done throughout the entire process. He answered all of my questions. He has been comforting, professional, extremely competent and the reconstruction looks fantastic! It is a work of art! It is more than I ever expected!His staff is so warm, caring and kind as well as professional! These ladies rock!I came here very frightened and insecure and now I am confident and very grateful because of the experience I have had. I am so happy I came here and I would encourage anyone who needs reconstruction to come to Dr. Shenaq! You will not be disappointed."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Dec 13, 2017
The best candidates for brow lift surgery are men and women who have:
- Overall good health
- Noticeable forehead wrinkles
- Droopy eyelids or brows
- Low eyebrows that look tired or unhappy
What to Expect
During your initial consultation, the doctor will examine the overall health of your skin and examine the wrinkles, creases, and folds in your forehead. During the procedure, the surgeon will use one of many techniques that best fits the patient’s cosmetic needs. The most common approach uses a small incision made along the hairline or the brow line. A local anesthetic will be used to reduce discomfort and pain during the surgery. While there are more invasive approaches to this procedure, the surgeon will decide if they are needed to achieve the patient’s desired outcome.
Following brow lift surgery, swelling and bruising are expected on and around the forehead and eyes. You can expect this to subside after 1 – 2 weeks. It may take 3 – 4 weeks following the procedure before you can see signs of improvement.
