Brow Lift

What is brow lift surgery?

Brow lift surgery (also known as a browplasty or forehead lift) is a popular cosmetic procedure that helps create a lifted brow appearance, which offers a more youthful look to the top portion of the face. A drooping brow can often lead to a tired or angry look. This procedure surgically lifts a sagging brow to create a rejuvenated appearance. Dr. Robert Schwartz is a plastic surgeon in Dallas, TX who

has performed brow lift surgery on both women and men to create a younger facial appearance. While a brow lift focuses on the brow itself, it may also have an effect on the upper eyelid, Crow’s feet, and some of the forehead. Injectable wrinkle treatments like BOTOX are often used in combination with a brow lift at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX for optimal results, creating a softer and smoother look.

Brow lift ideal candidates

As we age, skin laxity decreases and causes various aspects of the face to sag. This is especially true in the upper face region and usually affects both men and women. When looking in the mirror, do you feel

you look tired or angry, or notice frown lines between the brows, or are bothered by a drooping brow? A brow lift at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery may be the right cosmetic treatment for you.

Brow lift surgical technique

Prior to surgery, anesthesia will be administered. This can be done through general anesthesia or IV sedation depending on the nature of the surgery. The incision technique used during a brow lift is determined based on the severity of sag, whether or not the forehead is affected, and the position of the hairline. There are many approaches to consider:

Traditional Incision
This is the open brow lift incision, placing the incision at the top of the head behind the hairline. This incision not only hides scarring, it provides a certain degree of controlled lifting during the procedure.

This type of incision works well for those with both a sagging brow and frown lines. This is the preferred method if you are at risk for having a receding hairline.

Trichophytic Incision
This incision is placed right along the hairline. It allows significant lifting of the brow for men and women who have a strong hairline with little risk for recession.

Lateral Brow Lift
Also known as a temporal brow lift, this technique places the incision in the hairline just above the temples.

It allows the outer parts of the brow to be lifted and works well for sagging that is present in the outer brows. It also helps to smooth Crow’s feet.

Endoscopic Forehead Lift
This is one of the more modern techniques used in brow lift surgery. It places several tiny incisions in the hairline and inserts a tool known as an endoscope, which travels down to the area of the eyebrow to release its attachments. Through the camera of the endoscope, the brow tissue is suspended using stitches to keep the brow in its higher position.

What to expect after brow lift

Recovery following brow lift surgery varies, with more post-operative discomfort and swelling occurring with the open approach versus the endoscopic or temporal methods. Overall, there will be slight bruising and swelling in the upper face near the brows and possibly around the eyes. Cold compresses may help to diminish the swelling. Dr. Schwartz advises his patients to sleep upright for the first several nights following their surgery.

It is important to avoid any movement or activities that may place stress on the face. The average recovery time from this procedure is about 2 – 3 weeks. The outcome can usually be seen immediately, resulting in a rejuvenated appearance that looks softer, more alert, and with a noticeable reduction in fine lines and sagging in the upper face.

Most frequently asked questions

Can I donate blood before surgery?

Donating blood causes a temporary anemia. This usually corrects within 1-2 weeks. Nonetheless, we recommend that patients do not donate blood for at least one month before cosmetic surgery.

Some patients have expressed interest in donating blood for their own use, if needed. Since most cosmetic procedures are designed to produce minimal to moderate blood loss, transfusion is almost never needed. While you are, of course, free to self-donate blood, this would almost always be unnecessary.

Can you move a person's hairline forward?

A modified browlift can be used to lower the hairline. I make an incision at the hairline and then work toward the back of the head freeing the the scalp from the skull bone beneath it. The scalp (and the hair) is then slid forward. I remove a strip of excess skin at the top of the forehead and close the remaining forehead skin to the repositioned scalp. The result is a lower hairline. There is a permanent scar just at the hairline but with meticulous closure techniques, this is often difficult to see.

Is it normal to have a sore throat after surgery?

Sore throat can happen after surgery. It is usually caused by the endotracheal tube the anesthesiologist uses to help you breath. It is somewhat more common in women than in men. The soreness is usually mild and goes away within a few days. A severe sore throat or one that lasts for more than a few days should be reported to Dr. Schwartz.
