what is 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.
"Hands down the best doctor, physician, surgeon and medical professional that I have ever had an experience with. Dr. Shenaq seamlessly balances bedside manner, a relentless pursuit for accomplishing the desired results all while setting realistic patient expectations and making you feel as though you are the only patient he is seeing. His attention to detail is beyond measure. The quality of his work is an art-form and he will take all the time in the world he needs and that you need from the moment you meet for a consultation to not giving up until he is satisfied in the operating room, and then any follow up consultations and appointments afterwards. He sees it through to the end and keeps the relationship going and is accessible. The most approachable Doctor I have ever met and although he does this work everyday...each patient, each approach is unique and tailormade. I was hopeless I could ever be confident again and Dr. Shenaq gave that back. I am forever grateful. Thank you!"- F.D. / Healthgrades / Jan 04, 2021

"Dr. Shenaq is an amazing Plastic Surgeon. From the very beginning he was very professional and knowledgeable. I had breast reconstruction with expanders and subsequently my implants placed in. I visited with him in his office for several months and he never once rushed the process. I am beyond pleased with my reconstructed breasts and his level of professionalism. He does amazing work! Additionally, his staff is awesome as well. Marcie at the front desk is always very pleasant and his support staff is always so attentive and helpful. I would definitely recommend Dr. Shenaq! Top quality work!"- J.J. / Google / Feb 03, 2020

"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

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.
