What is a brow lift?

The skin and tissue on your forehead above your eyes are affected by many factors as you age: gravity, toxins in the air, your diet, and sun exposure, just to name a few. These factors cause the skin and tissue to droop, sag, and wrinkle. A brow lift is a surgical procedure to lift the brow area and create a more refreshed look by lifting the skin and underlying tissues higher on the forehead and removing excess skin.

Your brow lift procedure

At Face Austin, your brow lift will be fully customized to account for your unique physiology and goals. During your initial consultation, Dr. Antunes will determine which technique is right for you. Your procedure will likely involve one of the following brow lift methods:

Endoscopic brow lift

The most modern and least-invasive method of performing a brow lift is through advanced endoscopy. We will make a few small incisions and then use advanced microtools to pull, reshape, and anchor your tissue to the new, higher position. This method is ideal for those who have moderate signs of aging. This approach has a shorter recovery period than a traditional brow lift. 

Traditional brow lift

In a traditional brow lift, we make an incision that runs from the top of one ear around to the top of the other ear. This allows access to adjust, reshape, trim, and re-anchor the skin and tissue to a youthful location, thereby providing comprehensive, dramatic, and stunning results that appear entirely natural.

Recovery and results

You should plan for 10 to 14 days of rest and recovery after your brow lift. The recovery may be faster after an endoscopic brow lift. Your forehead may be slightly swollen or bruised, but it usually peaks within several days and then improves quickly as time passes.

The procedure has the added benefit of gently lifting sagging eyelid skin. The results of your brow lift in Austin will be visible immediately. Your final results will emerge over the following months as your skin heals, creating a refreshed, youthful look.

Can I combine a brow lift with a facelift?

A brow lift is often combined with other procedures such as eyelid surgery or a full facelift to achieve the most rejuvenating effects possible. Because a brow lift focuses on the forehead and eye area, to achieve a more comprehensive rejuvenating effect, a brow lift is commonly combined with a facelift. The facelift addresses the lower parts of the face, sculpting and defining the features. The muscles and skin of the face and neck are tightened and lifted. 

When a facelift and brow lift are combined, the effect is far more dramatic, turning back the clock as much as 15 years.
