As you lose collagen and elastin in your skin, the forehead and brow area cannot resist the effects of gravity. The resultant sagging makes you look tired and angry. A brow lift tightens the forehead to give the upper area of your face a refreshed, young appearance. Dr. Balinger offers forehead lift procedures for men and women in Houston, Conroe, and the surrounding areas of Texas.
What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift is a cosmetic procedure that targets signs of aging in the forehead area. Dr. Balinger may recommend a forehead lift when injectables do not produce the desired anti-aging benefits. A forehead lift may be performed endoscopically if you have less severe sagging, or incisions may be need for moderate to severe sagging. The procedure may soften forehead wrinkles, or Dr. Balinger may recommend that you use injectables to further smooth out the skin.
How Much Does a Forehead Lift Cost?
The average cost of a forehead lift is $3,000 to $5,750. After your consultation with Dr. Balinger, we will review the cost of your brow lift. We offer free initial consultations at our offices in Houston and Conroe, as well as financing options for our patients.
What Are the Benefits of a Brow Lift?
- Raises eyebrows to the natural line along the brow bone
- May help with crow’s feet and horizontal forehead wrinkles
- Can be combined with blepharoplasty and injectables
How is a Forehead Lift Performed?
The incisions may be made:
- In the temple area
- Along the top of your face following the hairline
- From ear to ear along the hairline
The endoscopic technique requires several small incisions along the hairline.
After making the incisions, Dr. Balinger may tighten the muscles with sutures before pulling the skin taut over the forehead and brow area.
What is Recovery Like After a Brow Lift?
The top of your head and brow area are wrapped to reduce swelling and help manage any discomfort. You will need to rest at home with your head elevated and apply cold compresses as required by Dr. Balinger. As the area heals, you may notice some bruising, swelling, tingling, itching, numbness, and other symptoms. You will need to avoid getting the incision wet until it is healed, so you may not be able to wash your face or hair, and you should take baths instead of showers.
How Long Will Forehead Lift Results Last?
Brow lift surgery will not stop the aging process, but you should enjoy the results for many years. Dr. Balinger may recommend medical spa treatments to correct any minor wrinkles that develop on your forehead and around your eyes.
