what is a forehead lift?
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.
Am I A Candidate For A Forehead Lift?
When you age, skin laxity diminishes and causes many areas of the face to sag. This is especially true in the upper face and commonly impacts women and men. When looking in a mirror, do you appear angry or tired, notice frown wrinkles in between your brows, or are bothered by a sagging brow? A surgical forehead (or brow) lift at MyBodyMD can be the ideal aesthetic procedure for you.

how is a forehead lift performed?
A forehead (or brow) lift can be performed using several different methods depending on your hairline, 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.
how long is recovery after a forehead lift?
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.

what kind of forehead lifts are there?
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.
