Brow Lift (Forehead Lift, Browplasty) - Houston, TX

44 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

A brow lift can provide a significantly more refreshed and youthful look to the face by correcting the characteristics that cause a tired and aged appearance. Due to a loss of skin elasticity, sun damage and repeated muscle contraction, the brow begins to descend lower on the face and creases become etched along the forehead and between the brows causing the face to have an aged, fatigued and worried appearance. Houston triple board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Henry Mentz of Houston uses an endoscopic technique, which allows him to reposition the skin and the underlying tissues and muscles of the forehead through tiny incisions made within the hairline so that scarring is minimal and well-concealed. He is an expert in the endoscopic brow lift technique, which allows him to restore a rejuvenated look to the face with the aid of a tiny fiber-optic tube that is attached to a camera.

Surgical Technique

In an endoscopic brow lift procedure, Dr. Mentz makes one-eighth of an inch incisions at or within the hairline. The endoscope’s small video camera allows him to view the internal structures of the forehead so that the long incision commonly used in other brow lift methods is unnecessary. He then repositions the skin and underlying tissues and muscles of the forehead to smooth away expression lines and gently elevate the brows to give the face a more youthful and refreshed appearance. The endoscopic brow lift procedure is completed in 1-2 hours under general anesthesia at Dr. Mentz’s private AAAASF-certified SurgiCentre in Houston, Texas under the supervision of a board-certified anesthesiologist. Patients typically are able to return to work in 7-10 days, and sutures are removed in 5-10 days.

Recovery

If you live within 30 miles of our facility, Dr. Mentz will offer a visit to your home by a plastic surgery nurse who is trained to assist you with your recovery. The nurse will monitor your recovery, change any dressings, assist you with your medication, and provide Dr. Mentz with an update on your condition. The endoscopic brow lift produces minimal bruising and swelling, and nearly undetectable scars. Stitches are removed in 7-10 days, and most patients can return to work and normal activities in a week, while exercise may be resumed in about four weeks. You may experience reduced sensation in your scalp which typically returns within the first few weeks as the nerves reawaken.

Brow Lift FAQs

Positive Results?

Brow lift surgery provides the following benefits:

  • Elevates the brows into a youthful position to give you a more refreshed and youthful look
  • Smoothes out the lines that stretch across the forehead and the vertical lines between the brows
  • Improves the appearance of sagging folds between the brows and lids

Combining Face Surgeries?

Though a brow lift alone can provide a significantly more refreshed and youthful look to the face, many patients choose to combine it with a facelift, neck lift, and/or eyelid surgery to create a youthful look that appears natural and balanced. During your consultation with Dr. Mentz, he will evaluate your facial characteristics and listen to your goals in order to provide you with the surgical and non-surgical recommendations that will give you the most naturally rejuvenated appearance.
