Brow Lift 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.
Brow Lift Reviews
"Hello everyone- I was reading a "few," and I mean "few," negative reviews about Dr. Mentz. I felt the need to share my thoughts. I have been seeing Dr. Mentz for years. He has absolutely transformed me from the inside out. I have had my breast fixed, liposuction, tummy tuck, eyebrow lift and reconstruction of my nose that two surgeons could not fix. These were done with about 3 surgeries over the years. I also see Renée for all my injection fillers. Dr Mentz is an artist!! He can look at you in about 1 minute and is confident in what you need done. I have been reading comments about people complaining they had to wait too long to see him or how he did not spend enough time with them. I would much rather wait two hours to see an impeccable TRIPLE board certified Doctor and have him know exactly what I need then five minutes to see someone who will mess me up forever. If Dr Mentz is busy, and you have to wait then that means everyone is seeing him to either fix something or have something done right the first time around. I have referred him several times to friends and the feedback is always amazing. Dr Mentz and his team are the best of the best! Thank you for making me beautiful Dr Mentz !! Thank you for giving me back my self-esteem ! I am 40 years old and I still get carded. "- H. / Demandforce / Sep 29, 2015
"I had a lower blepharoplasty, brow lift, breast lift, liposuction and had wonderful results and outcomes. These procedures were done over a course of several years and time. I can honestly tell you that I trust him and he is very knowledgeable and highly skilled with lots of experience. He is also easy to talk to and takes time to listen to my needs and concerns. I realize that everyone has a difference experience and outcome and I'm being honest when I say that I have had nothing but a positive experience with him and his staff. The facility is top notch and can't be matched by other places that I've seen. I highly recommend Dr. Mentz."- K.C. / Google / Mar 29, 2016
"I had brow lift, lower blepharaplasty and liposuction about nine months ago. The bleph and brow lift is very natural looking and turned out great. Did a great job on the lipo also. I have been very pleased with my results. My sister had procedures done by Dr. Mentz before in the past and we are both very pleased and happy patients."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Jun 25, 2010
"Several years ago (2009)I had several procedures performed: a brow lift, blepharoplasty and liposuction on my inner and outer thighs, and abdomen and was very pleased with my results. Just recently (March 2011) I went back in and had a breast reduction and additional liposuction on my arms and I'm very happy!!! Since choosing a surgeon is a personal one I can only comment on how the experience was for me. I chose Dr. Mentz also since he is triple board certified and I feel that he is a good listener and understands my needs. I would not go to anyone else."- Anonymous / Vitals / Mar 07, 2011
"Did an excellent job - I had surgery with Dr. Mentz 12 days ago and I am already extremely happy with the results. I had had a previous under eyelift with another doctor and I had a visible scar that I wanted corrected. After our consultation we decided on a browlift, under eye lift with a scar revision and fat grafting to add a little bit of fat under my eyes and on the outer portion of my face. I was really nervous about the fat grafting as I have great cheekbones and didn't want them altered. I was also scared that I would come out looking like a different person and I didn't want that at all. He did such a good job, I am so thrilled already. I look exactly like me except younger and better. The scar is gone from under my eye and the fat grafted from my abdomen helped with dark under eye circles. I love the brow lift also and he didn't do too much. He is gifted with the face. I am so happy that I chose him and didn't go to someone that would make me look like someone else. Yes, there is a wait"- S.J. / Judy's Book / Jul 23, 2012
Brow Lift 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.
Brow Lift 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.

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.
