Brow lift surgery: Which approach is right for you?
Your custom brow lift at Houston Plastic Surgery Associates will be performed with advanced techniques.
Traditional brow lift surgery
This approach may be appropriate for people who need an extensive correction of the brow tissues. An incision is placed within the hairline, where the scar will be hidden once healed. The tissues are delicately raised by removing the excess skin and tissue while gently raising the area to create a refreshed, smooth look.
Endoscopic brow lift surgery
An advanced brow lift technique, the endoscopic approach involves placing smaller incisions in the hairline, with the excess skin and tissue removed and the underlying structure repositioned. The recovery time is shorter, and this approach may be ideal for you. The lifting effect smooths forehead lines, lifts the brows, and leaves you looking refreshed.
Temporal (lateral) brow lift surgery
This technique involves placing incisions about one inch long in the hairline, just above the forehead. One advantage is that this procedure requires only local anesthesia. The tissues of the forehead are delicately corrected and lifted to smooth the brow, lift the eyebrows, and smooth crow’s feet.
Trichophytic brow lift surgery
This technique, which is also termed a “hairline” brow lift, involves placing an uneven, wavy incision in the hairline, which leaves a less visible scar. The brows are gently elevated, and horizontal lines and creases are smoothed. This procedure is ideal for those who do not expect to experience natural balding later in life.
