Brow Lift

Your forehead and eyebrows are expressive facets of your face. They convey various emotions. The raising of your eyebrows conveys curiosity or even frightfulness. Furrowed brows are an obvious sign of worry. When the forehead pushes back, it creates deep lines during a laugh, for some. Essentially, the forehead and eyebrows move a lot for the purpose of displaying how you are feeling at any given moment. Unfortunately, over time, your forehead and eyebrows’ expressive nature can result in lines and wrinkles becoming permanently imprinted. This cosmetic concern can be particularly disheartening for some because it can make the dynamic force of your eyebrows and forehead singular, creating an appearance defined by tiredness or even worry. Correct your forehead and eyebrows and regain their expressive nature by having a brow lift.

A brow lift is a surgical procedure that can rejuvenate the appearance of your eyebrows and forehead, creating an image that is more alert, excited and fresh with vitality. Residents of Texas, New Mexico and Mexico have the opportunity to correct worn-looking eyebrows under the surgical expertise of Dr. Mark A. Jabor or Dr. Dale Reynolds of Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Centers of El Paso, conveniently located in El Paso.

What Is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift procedure, also known as a forehead lift, is used to treat deep furrows on the forehead, frown lines over the eyes, drooping eyebrows or a hood-like sag over the eyes, all conditions that can make you look or feel older than you are. Dr. Jabor and Dr. Reynolds treat these symptoms with a brow lift or a forehead lift at their local offices in El Paso, TX. A forehead lift can rejuvenate the face, giving patients a youthful, animated and alert appearance.

A brow lift is usually performed under local anesthesia, supplemented by a mild sedative to keep patients awake and relaxed. Your doctor will make an incision across the top of the head, just above the hairline. Excess skin and portions of the muscle are then removed through the incision, which is closed with clips or sutures. A brow lift may be performed alone or in tandem with other procedures, such as facelift surgery or eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty).

What Is the Difference Between a Brow Lift and Blepharoplasty?

Brow lift and blepharoplasty are surgical procedures that address cosmetic concerns located near the eyes. Many considering the procedures get them confused because they both correct drooping eyelids. However, blepharoplasty focuses exclusively on the eyelids while a brow lift does not. Eyelid corrections associated with a brow lift is an indirect result of lifting the brows, which helps tighten the upper eyelid skin. There is no trimming of excess skin or significant correction of the eyelids during a brow lift. In comparison, blepharoplasty involves correcting the upper and lower eyelids’ sagging skin by removing excess skin, tightening muscles, and repositioning fat pads located near the eyes. 

The two treatments are exceptional and come with their own unique benefits. If you are more concerned about your eyelids’ cosmetic appearance due to sagging, then blepharoplasty is an excellent choice of a surgical procedure. While a brow lift will relieve some signs of age associated with the eyelids, it will not be a significant correction if blepharoplasty were performed. Both procedures may be performed in conjunction to achieve comprehensive results by rejuvenating your eyes and forehead.

Who Is the Ideal Brow Lift Candidate?

You are an excellent candidate for a brow lift if you have signs of age around your forehead, upper eyelids and between your brows. Concerns that a brow lift can address includes:

  • Drooping eyebrows
  • Sagging upper eyelids
  • Deep creases across the forehead
  • Frown lines between the brows, or the ’11’
  • An image that makes you constantly appear tired or worried

During an initial consultation with either Dr. Jabor or Dr. Reynolds, your cosmetic concerns will be reviewed, and a brow lift may be recommended. A combination of other treatments, including a facelift or blepharoplasty, may also be considered. Your health history and currently prescribed medications will also be reviewed to ensure candidacy. 

What to Expect During Your Brow Lift

Your brow lift may be treated as an outpatient procedure in the El Paso office. Our practice utilizes the temporal brow lift technique, which is less invasive than other techniques. Your brow lift procedure begins with making an incision along your hairline. A surgical telescope (known as an endoscope) is then used to lift the brow and forehead. After lifting the skin of your forehead, your brow lift provider will remove excess skin and muscle and reposition them if necessary. Your forehead skin is pulled taut, relieving your forehead, brow and upper eyelids of creases and sagging skin. When your provider believes your skin is in a flattering position, the incision made along your hairline is sutured shut. Your brow lift will take approximately two hours to complete. 

What to Expect After Your Brow Lift

After your brow lift, your provider will provide you with thorough post-operative instructions to ensure a healthy recovery. You may experience bruising, swelling and mild discomfort in the treated area. These are normal side effects that should go away after several days. Downtime for a brow lift is approximately one to two weeks, after which you will be able to return to work and other daily activities. After a brow lift, you should avoid strenuous exercise, which increases your blood pressure, along with prolonged exposure to heat or the sun.

Brow lift results are long-lasting. Depending on your health habits and if you maintain a daily skincare regimen, your results can last as long as 10 years. As mentioned, the forehead is an expressive facet of your body. Because of this, it’s natural for wrinkles and creases to reappear, albeit not as severe as they would have been if you never had a brow lift. Your brow lift results will revive your image, making you appear more alert and youthful.
