Brow Lift

A brow lift is a surgical procedure that makes your forehead look youthful. Years of aging, repeated muscle contractions, and the loss of elasticity can make the brows descend lower on the face, leading to deeply-etched horizontal creases and frown lines that make you look tired and exhausted. An overly heavy or droopy brow can also make you look grumpy. A brow lift in Dallas trims away excess skin tissues, elevates the brows into a youthful position, and smoothes away the forehead lines, making you look refreshed.

Dr. Chiodo’s Endoscopic Brow Lift Technique

Dr. Chiodo performs a highly personalized brow lift surgery to revitalize your complexion. During your consultation, he will carefully examine your forehead and eyebrows to measure the degree of sagging and laxity. He will also discuss your goals and concerns, review your health history, and determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. After a thorough evaluation, he marks the treatment areas and curates a personalized brow lift treatment plan, which involves selecting the appropriate incision style and surgical technique.

Traditionally, a brow lift could only be performed via long incisions made along the hairline, which involved several weeks of downtime and a high risk of prominent scarring. But Dr. Chiodo specializes in the endoscopic brow lift technique, which allows him to make the necessary adjustments through an incision that measures one-eighth of an inch, making it barely perceptible after healing. Furthermore, the incision is made within the hairline, completely hidden from plain sight.

Your endoscopic brow lift in Dallas is performed under general anesthesia in our cutting-edge operating room. Dr. Chiodo makes an extremely small incision on the hairline, following which a tiny fiber-optic tube with a camera is driven through the incision, allowing the surgeon to view the internal structure of the forehead. Under endoscopic guidance, the surgeon repositions the skin, trims away excess skin tissues, and tightens the muscles, making your forehead look smooth and youthful. The procedure concludes within 2 hours.

Goals of Brow Lift Include:

  • Smoothen away horizontal forehead lines and frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Reduce sagging folds between the eyebrows and eyelids
  • Reduce the “heavy” appearance of the forehead
  • Make your eyebrows and forehead look more youthful
  • Elevate the position of the eyebrows

Candidates for Brow Lift:

  • Have severe and prominent forehead lines and frown lines
  • Are unhappy with the appearance of an overly heavy forehead
  • May have poor vision because of drooping eyebrows and eyelids
  • Want to make the forehead look smooth and youthful
  • Have sufficient skin elasticity
  • Are in good physical and mental health
  • Have realistic expectations from the procedure
  • Are nonsmokers or willing to stop smoking before and after the procedure
  • Can take around two weeks off work and other responsibilities to recover

Recovery After Brow Lift

Endoscopic brow lift ensures minimal swelling and bruising because the incision is extremely small. But you should still expect mild swelling, tenderness, numbness, and bruising around the forehead for a few days. The scar is virtually invisible because it’s hidden under the hairline. You can resume most of your daily activities and work after a week, but strenuous workouts should be avoided for 4 to 6 weeks, depending on the surgeon’s recommendation.

Brow Lift FAQs

Are there any potential risks or complications associated with brow lift surgery?

Like any surgical procedure, a brow lift carries some risks. Potential complications may include infection, scarring, numbness, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. Additionally, there’s a chance of asymmetry or undesirable changes in eyebrow shape. However, Dr. Chiodo takes all possible precautions and provides detailed aftercare guidelines to mitigate these risks.

Can a brow lift improve the appearance of forehead wrinkles and sagging brows?

Yes, a brow lift addresses both forehead wrinkles and sagging brows. By lifting the brow tissues and smoothing out forehead skin, this procedure can significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles and create a more youthful and refreshed look, enhancing overall facial harmony and symmetry.

How long do the results of a brow lift typically last?

The longevity of brow lift results varies from person to person, but on average, they can last between 5 to 10 years. As you grow older, you may again notice wrinkles and sagging skin on the forehead — a brow lift can’t stop the aging process. Furthermore, lifestyle factors and genetics also play a role in the longevity of the results.

Are there non-surgical alternatives to a brow lift?

Yes, non-surgical options to improve the appearance of the brow area can include Botox and dermal fillers. Botox injections can temporarily smooth the forehead and brow area by relaxing the muscles responsible for horizontal forehead lines and the frown lines between eyebrows. Dermal fillers can also add volume and support to the brows. However, non-surgical treatments produce temporary results for a few months.
