Brow Lift in Plano
The upper face is particularly vulnerable to the consequences of time, gravity, sun damage, and the cumulative effect of repeated facial expressions. As the years go on, the brow may begin to droop, while wrinkles commonly increase around the eyes and across the forehead. A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, can restore a youthful, revitalized look to this part of the face. At Brobst Facial Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics in Plano Brow Lift Surgery can be an exceptional way to revitalize a very visible part of the face with noticeably positive results.
A brow lift is a surgical procedure that rejuvenates the look of the forehead and eyebrows. This can diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, lift the eyebrows, and renew the face's overall appearance. Although infrequently identified as a problem, the effects of aging take their toll on the brow and forehead. The descent of these tissues can lead to deep forehead creases and crowding of the eyes, giving a tired and sometimes angry appearance. This can make applying makeup to the upper eyelids a challenge. Although neurotoxins (Botox cosmetic and Dysport) can improve dynamic forehead creases and minimally lift portions of the brow, limitations exist. In these select patients, true forehead and brow rejuvenation can be achieved using modern endoscopic techniques without the telltale “surprised look” of overcorrection.

Refresh And Renew

A brow lift can help to make a person look and feel more youthful and refreshed and can provide a wide range of benefits, both aesthetic and psychological. It is essential to discuss the potential risks and benefits of the procedure with your surgeon to make an informed decision about whether a brow lift is right for you. A good candidate for a brow lift is typically someone who is in good overall health and has realistic expectations about the potential outcomes of the procedure. They should also be willing to follow their surgeon's instructions for care and recovery and be in good emotional health. A consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon can help determine if a brow lift is the right choice for an individual.
Confidence in the process

It’s important to Dr. Brobst that you are knowledgeable and comfortable with any cosmetic decision.

The forethought to improve your forehead
At our practice in Plano Brow Lifts can be performed under local, sedation, or general anesthetic. Slight incisions are made in the hairline, and the forehead's skin, muscles, and tissues are repositioned. Several techniques are effective in improving brow position. In severe brow malposition, a direct method is occasionally utilized to open the eyes’ aperture and remove the hooding.
Alternatively, an endoscopic approach is utilized to correct a heavy brow using the most current techniques to create a natural position and shape. Through this approach, a few short vertical incisions are placed in the hairline, and visible scars are avoided. Using an endoscope (camera) and fine long instruments, the brow attachments are released, and the muscles are treated to achieve the desired effect. In patients with a high hairline, a modification is made to improve the position of the frontal hairline. Once the Brow Lift procedure is completed, the incisions are closed, and a dressing is applied. After awakening from anesthesia and confirming your comfort, you will be able to go home in the care of a responsible adult.

The morning after the Brow Lift procedure, the dressing is removed, and wound care is reviewed. Swelling is normal and responds well to a cool compress, head elevation, and light activity. A short period of tightness, headache, and nausea are common complaints but are actively treated when necessary with medications. Temporary alterations in sensation can occur but improve without intervention. After one week, all skin closures have been removed, and most bruising and swelling is gone from the upper face. With the exception of intense exercise and heavy lifting, normal activities can be restarted after two weeks. Hair coloring should be performed just before the operation or delayed for six weeks. Patients flying in for their operation should make arrangements to stay in town for a week. Swelling and the final brow position continue to improve during the first three to four weeks.
After having a brow lift Plano patients should know it is important to follow Dr. Brobst’s instructions for care and recovery to ensure the best possible results. This may include:
It is also important to attend follow-up appointments with Dr. Brobst to ensure that your incisions are healing properly and that you are satisfied with your results. If you have any concerns or questions, please reach out and ask us.
While some discomfort is to be expected, the degree of discomfort can vary depending on the individual and the specifics of the procedure. Most people report mild discomfort during the first few days after the surgery, but this can usually be managed with pain medication. Those that are prone to headaches usually have more discomfort. Using long-lasting local anesthesia during the procedure can help minimize discomfort, and the majority of people recover comfortably after a brow lift.
The cost of a brow lift can vary depending on several factors, including the procedure's complexity, the surgeon's experience, the practice's location, anesthesia fees, facility costs, and additional procedures. Lipoma removal and osteoma removal can frequently be combined with this procedure Similarly, forehead reduction is often incorporated to enhance the overall upper facial appearance. On average, a brow lift costs under 10,000, but the cost can range from $5,000 to $15,000. Revision brow lift procedures are always more costly. It is important to keep in mind that because a brow lift is considered a cosmetic procedure, it is typically not covered by health insurance. It is always a good idea to discuss the cost of the procedure with your surgeon before making a decision.
