When the upper face ages, the eyebrows may begin to sag into a lower position, which creates a tired or sad appearance, deep horizontal creases across the forehead and frown lines, or furrows between the eyebrows and across the top of the nose. A forehead lift, also known as a brow lift or browplasty, can improve all of these problems. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Rafi Bidros, will assess your needs and advise you on the best options at his office in Houston. Results of a brow lift may be enhanced by adding nonsurgical treatments, like laser resurfacing or a chemical peel to further improve skin tone and surface appearance. A brow lift can also be included with a full facelift for greater improvements. If you have significant skin overhang in the upper eyelids or puffy bags beneath your eyes, Dr. Bidros may recommend adding eyelid surgery to your forehead lift.

"Dr. Bidros and his staff were very friendly and professional from the start. They all treated me with utmost respect and gave me their honest opinions while I was going through my planning for my procedure. When I was doing my research on finding the right surgeon for me, I saw great reviews and pictures of his work. When I went in for my consultation, I saw albums of his many travels to perform procedures for children with cleft palates etc. which melted my heart and showed me that Dr. Bidros is a selfless man that cares for others and does this line of work for all the right reasons. I literally had no pain or bruising after my surgery and my results are phenomenal! Healing time was also minimal! Dr. Bidros is very talented and I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family and will go to him for any future procedures! Thank you Dr. Bidros & staff!"- J.B. / Google / Dec 31, 2017

"I agree with a previous review, being referred to Dr. Bidros and his staff was a true blessing. I absolutely love Dr. Bidros, Mandy, Jackie and Connie. I was referred to him by my breast surgeon. He and his staff are so caring, kind, educational and compassionate. My personal experience was one of breast cancer reconstruction. I have been exceptionally pleased. When asked about breast cancer; I say the best thing that came out of a really horrible, frightening situation, are the highly skilled and talented surgeons and people that I have met along the way. He and his girls are at the top of that list. I am very grateful and extremely blessed to have been directed to his office and highly recommend him."- M.B. / Google / Dec 31, 2017
Brow lifts can be performed using several different methods depending on your hair line, hair density, the severity of your sagging, and the shape of your brow. Dr. Bidros takes current styles into consideration, plus your preference to achieve your best shape. Dr. Bidros will modify his technique to avoid the “surprised look” that makes it obvious the patient has had plastic surgery. Asymmetry in brow position can also be improved with some of the techniques that Dr. Bidros utilizes.
Dr. Bidros typically performs this operation under general anesthesia, but it may also be performed with the patient under intravenous sedation. Dr. Bidros will discuss all forehead lift technique options with you during the consultation and use the technique chosen by the patient during their surgery. Swelling should subside in 1-2 weeks and final results may appear within a couple of weeks. Incision lines will continue to refine and fade for up to 1 year.

Forehead Lift OPTIONS
A coronal, or endoscopic, brow lift is typically for people who still have a youthful, low hairline but have drooping brow and heavy horizontal lines.
Lateral Brow Lift
The lateral brow lift is an excellent option for asymmetrical brows and limited horizontal lines. Dr. Bidros has made national presentations of his subcutaneous temporal brow lift for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Hair Line Brow Lift
A hair line brow lift is typically for people with a receding hairline. This procedure can also improve and lower the hairline.
Endotine Brow Lift
An endotine, or transbleph, brow lift is good for people having an upper eyelid surgery or to improve the appearance of bald men.
