Is a brow lift the right surgery for me?

Over time, your eyebrows may have drifted below the bone brow ridge, giving your face an unfriendly, heavy, older look. Restoring the shape and position of the brows can significantly enhance your appearance, creating a refreshed, youthful look. As your skin and tissues age, the natural collagen and elastin fibers stretch, and less of these skin-firming fibers are produced, all of which lead to sagging skin and drooping of the brows.

If you have a creased, saggy brow and visible lines and wrinkles, a brow lift may be ideal for you. You may appear sad, concerned, or angry when your face is at rest. If this sounds like you, you may be a candidate for a custom brow lift from Dr. Edward Chamata. Every brow lift is customized for the individual, geared to restore a more refreshed, open, youthful facial look.

How is a brow

lift performed?

Every person is unique in their skin quality and how their brow position and shape changes with age. The first step in brow lift surgery involves a full evaluation of your brow position to identify the ideal surgical approach. You may be a candidate for minimal-incision approaches for brow elevation such as an endoscopic brow lift or a temporal brow lift. These techniques utilize tiny incisions concealed within the hair that are imperceptible once healed. Other brow lift techniques such as a pretrichial “hairline” brow lift or a coronal brow lift may alternatively be performed based on your anatomy and aesthetic goals. To Dr. Chamata of Houston, brow lifts are a simple procedure, yet the results are life-changing.

Healing after a brow lift

After your surgery, you can expect some swelling and bruising. You will need to keep your head elevated during the day and while sleeping. Avoid any alcohol or certain medications such as aspirin. You will need to avoid any heavy lifting or vigorous physical activities for several weeks but should take gentle walks to promote healthy circulation.

You will have medications prescribed by Dr. Chamata, which you must take as directed. A temporal brow lift or an endoscopic brow lift typically have a fast recovery, with many people returning to their usual activities within a week to ten days, and the final result is achieved within four to six weeks.

Facelift, brow lift, or eyelid lift?

Facial rejuvenation varies from person to person. You may be unsure if you need an eyelid lift, facelift, or brow lift, or a combination of surgeries. A brow lift has the advantage of subtly lifting the eyelids, but if you have a higher quantity of excess eyelid skin, you may need a combination of procedures. A facelift does not address the forehead, and you may choose to combine these procedures or add a neck lift, depending on your unique condition. You can be confident that Dr. Chamata will never pressure you to undergo a procedure you don’t need. He offers honest guidance in a private, no-cost consultation.
