What is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift in Houston, also known as a forehead lift or browplasty, is a cosmetic surgery that can improve the appearance of the forehead, eyebrows, and upper eyelids. The goal of a brow lift is to create a more youthful appearance by correcting drooping skin and creating a more lifted, open, and alert look. Forehead wrinkles, drooping eyebrows, and hooding of the upper eyelids can make a person look tired, angry, or sad — browplasty can improve these signs of aging.

Goals of a Brow Lift:

  • Elevating the forehead and eyebrows to a more youthful position
  • Helping you achieve a more rested and youthful appearance
  • Reducing the horizontal forehead lines and vertical frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Improving the sagging facial creases and folds between the forehead and eyelids
  • Improving overall facial contours and youthfulness

Browplasty + Blepharoplasty

Brow lifts are often performed in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures, such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), rhytidectomy (facelift), and rhinoplasty (nose surgery). Sometimes, the cosmetic concerns you attribute to signs of aging on the forehead can be caused by heavy or drooping eyelids, necessitating eyelid surgery. Dr. Erickson carefully examines your forehead, discusses your goals, and selects the appropriate surgical treatments for your specific needs.

Dr. Erickson’s Browplasty Technique

Dr. Erickson performs a highly personalized brow lift in Houston surgery using a cutting-edge endoscopic technique, which involves reversing the signs of aging on the forehead via extremely small incisions. During your consultation, he carefully examines your forehead and brows, discusses your goals and concerns, reviews your medical history, and measures the degree of skin laxity. If you’re deemed a good candidate for blepharoplasty, he curates a personalized surgical plan and describes what you can expect.

Your endoscopic brow lift is performed under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation at our accredited facility. During surgery, small incisions are made in the hairline, and a thin, lighted tube called an endoscope is inserted. The endoscope transmits images of the underlying tissue to a video screen, allowing the surgeon to see the muscles and tissue that need to be repositioned. After making incisions, the surgeon separates the skin from the underlying tissues and muscles.

Dr. Erickson will use the endoscope for guidance while repositioning the muscles and tissue. He may also remove excess skin to eliminate wrinkles. Once the desired results are achieved, the incisions will be closed with stitches or staples. The entire procedure takes an hour or two. You will be taken to a recovery room, where you will be monitored for a few hours, following which you can return home. You can expect bruising and swelling for up to two weeks after your procedure.
