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.
"Dr. Shenaq has been amazing with my reconstruction. I am so grateful for all he has done to help me. His staff is amazing as well. I can’t thank them enough, my life is forever changed."- L.P. / Google / Jan 17, 2022
"I am grateful to have Dr. Shenag on my care team. Before going into a bilateral mastectomy surgery, I thought I would need an additional surgery for the reconstruction, but Dr. Shenag was miraculously able to do immediate reconstruction to save me from having another surgery. Not only he saved me from going through another painful surgery, he again miraculously reconnected the damaged nerves for me to be able to feel sensation again, Unfortunately, pain is the first sensation I feel but I know it is only temporary since it takes time for nerves to heal. I can’t thank Dr. Shenag and his staffs ( Jessica & Desiree) enough for taking care of me…🙏🙏🙏"- N. / Google / Jan 22, 2022

His attention to detail is beyond measure.

What issues can a brow lift address?
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
how is brow lift surgery performed?
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.
how long is recovery from a brow lift?
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.
Brow Lift FAQ
How much does a brow lift cost?
It is more important to focus on finding a skilled surgeon, like Dr. Shenaq, who can give you the results you want rather than choosing the cheapest surgeon. Your costs for brow lift surgery will vary based on the technique used, the facility fee, anesthesia, and other factors. Once your treatment plan has been created in your consultation, an estimate of costs can be made. Dr. Shenaq will also explain payment methods we accept and how to find low-interest medical financing — so your surgery is easier to afford.
Do I need a brow lift or facelift?
Whether you should get a brow lift or full facelift will depend on your goals and where you have excess skin. You should openly discuss your concerns with Dr. Shenaq so he can help you decide which treatment is best. Some patients come in thinking they want a facelift to discover they only need a brow lift and vice versa. Using his experience, Dr. Shenaq can confidently help you create your treatment plan to give you the results you want.
What about nonsurgical treatments?
You may consider one of the many nonsurgical treatments, such as laser skin tightening and injectables (like BOTOX and JUVÉDERM®), that can give some improvements. However, brow lift surgery is better if you want longer-lasting results and significant improvements. During your consultation, Dr. Shenaq can go over both your surgical and nonsurgical options so you can decide which is best for your needs.
What technique should I choose?
Dr. Shenaq will explain brow lift techniques during your consultation to help you know the advantages of each. He will then help you select the best technique for your needs and goals. A few of the factors that might influence your technique choice are your hairline (taking into account both your current hairline as well as your risk of developing a receding hairline), the degree of skin sagging, and how much time you can devote to recovery.
Will my results look natural?
If you have an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Shenaq, your brow lift will look natural. He will create your treatment plan with the right technique for your needs and goals — so you appear refreshed and younger instead of tight or frozen. During your brow lift, Dr. Shenaq will concentrate on removing loose skin. The remaining tissue and skin will be smoothed — so your results don't lift your eyebrows too high or limit your facial expressions.
