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.

"My breast surgeon recommended that I consult multiple plastic surgeons for reconstruction following a bilateral mastectomy. After meeting Dr. Bidros, I canceled my other appointments. His combination of professionalism and compassion are outstanding; and his care for me did not end at reconstruction, as he was genuinely concerned with my overall well being. Mandy, Jackie, Connie and the entire staff made every visit and phone call a pleasure in an uncertain and scary period of my life. Dr. Bidros and his team not only made me look like my old self, they also helped me feel like my old self when I thought that simply was not possible. I cannot thank them enough."- R.F. / Google / May 21, 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.
