What Are Brow and Forehead Lift?

According to the most recent study, the most important features of your face are your eyebrows. They are critical in relaying your emotions and are vital in facial recognition.  As you age, your skin changes. It loses its elasticity causing wrinkles and sagging. Aging of your forehead causes eyebrows to descend which produces a tired and weighed down look. Brow lift procedure can help restore your younger appearance by removing years of forehead wrinkles and fine lines while revitalizing your eye to appear more open and refreshed.

What Can Brow Lift Accomplish?

  • Elevate sagging eyebrows, creating a more youthful and refreshed look.
  • Improve appearance of the upper eyes lids, making eyes appear more open.
  • Remove excess drooping skin from the forehead.
  • Reduce vertical worry lines between the eyebrows.
  • Reduce horizontal wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead.


Benefits of the brow lift procedure can boost you confidence and allow you to look as good as you feel.  Your transformation begins by visiting with Dr. Bachilo to discuss your personal aesthetic needs during your free consultation.


What to Expect During Your Brow or Forehead Lift Consultation?

Dr. Bachilo will listen to your concerns and your aesthetic goals. You will be asked about your medical and surgical history and any medications you are taking. Dr. Bachilo will then examine your skin and evaluate position of your brows. She will then be able to determine if you are a good candidate for brow lift surgery and describe your expected result from the procedure. Dr. Bachilo may offer several different options available for brow lift and explain any risks associated with them. Surgical options include an endoscopic brow lift and a traditional brow lift. The endoscopic procedure is less invasive and is ideal for patients who have minor cosmetic signs of aging.  The traditional brow lift is a more extensive procedure and allows for removal of excess forehead skin.  This procedure is best for patients who have significant sagging of the brow and show advanced signs of aging.

Once you decide that you are ready to schedule your surgery, you will be given detailed pre surgical instructions and will be asked to discontinue use of aspirin and other anti-inflammatory medications you may be taking as well as abstain from smoking for a month prior to your elective procedure.


How Is Brow Lift Procedure Performed?

Your procedure is performed in an outpatient surgery center or a hospital under general anesthesia and takes about an hour. Dr. Bachilo will design a surgical plan unique to your needs, and will generally utilize one of the two most common surgical techniques:  traditional brow lift procedure or the endoscopic brow lift procedure.

The traditional brow lift is ideal for patients who need skin excision and have advanced signs of aging.  The incision is designed along the hairline, so it is well hidden and leaves a barely perceptible scar.  Frown muscles that create wrinkles between the eyebrows are surgically weakened and the skin is lifted and tightened to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Eyebrows are thus elevated to produce a more youthful eyebrows and forehead.

The endoscopic brow lift utilizes a camera and is a minimally invasive procedure. Camera is inserted through a small incision in the scalp and another incision is used to dissect under the eyebrows and cut the muscles that cause frown lines. The skin of the forehead is elevated and suspended using sutures or screws to provide a youthful facial appearance.  Several small incisions are located in the hairline and are thus well hidden.  Endoscopic brow lift benefit is that it is minimally invasive and recovery is quick. However, it is only ideal for patients with short forehead and when forehead skin removal is not necessary.


What to Expect During Forehead or Brow Lift Recovery?

Discomfort is minimal after a brow lift procedure, but you can expect some bruising and swelling. You will receive detailed post-operative instructions and have a follow up scheduled with Dr. Bachilo. You should be able to return to work within a few days of your procedure.  You need to refrain from heavy lifting and strenuous physical activity for approximately four weeks after surgery.  Staples or sutures in your scalp will be removed 10 to 14 days after surgery. At one month, recovery is near complete and you will be able to enjoy the final results of your brow lift.  Scars, however, will continue to change and fade over time.


What Results Can I Expect?

Every patient is unique and results will vary. However, our patients are very pleased with their improvement in forehead wrinkles and eyebrow position and report long lasting results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who should consider a Brow Lift?

A brow lift is a surgical procedure designed for healthy adults who want to get rid of excess skin in the forehead that makes the eyebrows appear heavy and saggy.  An eyebrow lift also treats wrinkles and creases in the forehead. The procedure is especially suitable for individuals who wish to treat the following concerns:

1) Eyebrows that are thick and heavy and appear to sag or droop
2) Horizontal creases, lines, and wrinkles on the forehead
3) Vertical “worry lines” between the eyebrows

How should I prepare for a Brow Lift?

During your intake interview, Dr. Bachilo will ask key questions about your medical background, your history of cosmetic procedures and injectable treatments, and what drugs or medication you are taking.  You will be advised to quit smoking and drinking in preparation for your surgery, and you may also need to suspend certain blood-thinning medications in preparation for the procedure.

How is the Brow Lift procedure performed?

Brow lift surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia, and the surgery may be performed using the traditional surgical method or the newer endoscopic method, which is less invasive. In either case, the procedure will require a tiny incision, through which Dr. Bachilo will lift and tighten the skin and muscles of the forehead, eliminate excess fat, and trim away excess skin.  In many cases, the eyebrows may be pulled to a higher position on the face, which makes the face appear younger.

Can I combine a Brow Lift with another surgical procedure?

Patients often choose to combine a brow lift procedure with another surgical procedure, such as an eyelid lift to tighten sagging skin around the eyes, or a neck lift to tighten the skin of the lower face and neck.  You may choose to enhance the mid-face region with cheek implants, or enhance definition in your chin with a chin implant. During your initial consultation, Dr. Bachilo will recommend the best set of combined procedures to address all of your aesthetic concerns.

What is the Cost of a Brow Lift in the Houston area?

The cost for a brow lift will vary with each patient, depending in large part on the type of procedure that you have, whether it’s a traditional surgery or an endoscopic surgery.  General cost may vary from $4,500 to $7,000. You may also wish to combine the brow lift with other procedures as a package, which will help you save money on the combination of treatments.  During your intake consultation with Dr. Bachilo, you will be free to inquire about cost and payment plans so you can effectively plan ahead for your surgery.

Can I combine a Brow Lift with Botox or Dermal Filler Injections?

Yes. It is very common for patients to combine a surgical procedure such as a brow lift with Botox, Dysport or Xeomin injections, as well as dermal fillers such as Restylane, Radiesse and Juvederm, as well as many others. Ask Dr. Bachilo at your intake consultation what combination of treatments she recommends to help you look your best.

Will a Brow Lift eliminate sagging skin around my eyelids?

No. A brow lift will lift and tighten sagging skin in the eyebrows and forehead, but in order to tighten the skin around the eyes themselves, you will need a blepharoplasty or eyelid lift. Both procedures may be combined in a single surgical session.

Will a Brow Lift eliminate vertical worry lines between my eyebrows?

Yes. Many of our patients are concerned about thick, deep folds or furrows that form in the center of the eyebrows, at the top of the bridge of the nose. This is one of the many concerns that a brow lift can easily correct.

Does a Brow Lift require an extensive recovery period?

As with any surgical procedure, you should prepare in advance by planning to have someone drive you home after the surgery, and help out around the house while you recover.  Following the procedure, moderate swelling, numbness, and soreness around the incision site is normal, and swelling may extend into the area of the eyes, nose and cheeks, but these symptoms naturally resolve themselves within a week or so. You will have to keep your head elevated in a vertical position for the first 48 hours, so plan to sleep in a sitting position propped up by pillows.  In rare cases, patients may experience temporary hair loss around the incision area, but normal hair growth will resume within a few weeks. Patients who are candidates for the endoscopic brow lift will typically experience less swelling and discomfort, and often heal more quickly than those who undergo the traditional procedure.

Will a Brow Lift leave visible scars?

No.  A brow lift is performed in such a way that the hairline incisions are hidden within the natural hair line or it may be hidden in the hair like just above the eyebrow, so they will be virtually invisible.  Additionally, these scars fade gradually over time, becoming even less visible.

Brow or Forehead Lift Without Surgery

An array of changes affect our faces as we age, many of which diminish our attractiveness or make us look aged or tired. In particular, patients who complain of cosmetic concerns around the upper facial region often point at frown lines and furrows in the forehead and brow region that make us look worried or angry. Horizontal lines across the forehead may create a worried or sad appearance, while squint lines at the top of the nose may make one look eternally stressed.

You know the signs: your temples begin to hollow out, the brow area starts to look heavy, eyebrows lose their youthful shape and position. They start drooping, or become increasingly asymmetrical. Your eyelids look heavy and tired all the time.

These are all symptoms of flaccid skin in the upper facial region, and fortunately, at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, we can provide simple non-invasive solutions for this condition for our patients in the Houston metropolitan area.

Chemical Peels, Dermabrasion and Resurfacing

Chemical Peels, Dermabrasion, and Resurfacing to Treat Fine Lines

Chemical peels, dermabrasion, and skin resurfacing treatments all work by gently sloughing off the outermost layer of skin with all of its wrinkles and marks, and uncovering a fresh new layer of healthier, plumper skin cells. These treatments also trigger collagen production to improve the skin at the cellular level for weeks to come. They provide excellent temporary rejuvenation and should be repeated regularly to maintain results.


Injectables & Fillers for Added Smoothness and Volume

Neurotoxins such as Botox, Dysport or Xeomin may be used to temporarily relax muscles and prevent repetitive gestures from continuing to crease the skin in certain areas, such as laugh lines at the corners of the eyes, producing smoother, tighter skin in those areas. Injectable fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Sculptra may be also be used to add volume to sunken temples and cheekbones that have become flat or sunken.

Fat Transfer

Fat Grafting Increases Definition

Using unwanted fat harvested from such areas in your own body as the thighs, buttocks, or abdomen, fat grafting is a simple procedure that basically shifts your fat from places where you don’t want it to places where you do, such as to fill in the cheeks and hollowed out areas of the upper face, increasing tone and definition for a refreshed, younger-looking appearance. months following treatment.

Skin Tightening

Venus Viva and Venus Legacy Skin Tightening Treatments

If you have loose, sagging skin in the upper facial region, near the brow and forehead, or around the eyes, the Venus Viva or Venus Legacy skin tightening system can provide a non-invasive way to tighten the skin and increase production of collagen, to add thickness and firmness to the skin’s texture at the cellular level.

Dr. Bachilo is an incredible doctor and has a very friendly and kind personality. I had been to many plastic surgeons and none made me feel comfortable and respected the way she did when talking with her. I will continue to see her no matter where I am in the U.S. - Google

Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner.

Dr. Bachilo performed this procedure on me in March 2019. I am a 50-year-old female, 5‘4“, 170 pounds. Dr. Bachilo removed 10 L of fat, which is a very aggressive surgery. I felt comfortable with her, and asked her to push the limits, which she did. I spent the night in the hospital as a precaution as my blood pressure dropped and needed to be stabilized and monitored. Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner. She checked on me several times during the day and night before I left. I am now 8 days post-op and pleased with the results. - RealSelf
