Andy Courson, M.D. of the Houston Center for Facial Plastic Surgery- Kingwood is pleased to offer his interested patients the brow or forehead lift. And though this kind of surgery may not be the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to anti-aging signs, it certainly offers plenty of aesthetic benefits! This surgical procedure has the capability of transforming the overall look of the eyebrows and forehead, to bring about a more youthful and alert appearance or to refresh a tired look.
This procedure can also minimize forehead creases that develop across the upper part of the bridge of the nose as we age. Further desired and achievable effects include improving “frown lines” or reposition a low and sagging brow line.
Facial plastic surgeons, like Dr. Courson, may use an endoscope or medical video device, and other surgical instruments to perform this surgery. During the process, Dr. Courson places small incisions within the hairline which enable him to reposition, alter, or remove the tissue and muscle beneath the skin. He is also able to correct the source of visible creases and furrows in the forehead. Incisions in the hairline help conceal minimal scarring. In many cases, an open brow lift is the better, longer lasting option for a patient. With this technique, incisions are placed above, or just at the hairline to achieve a more significant and more permanent lift. Incisions are still well camouflaged and are virtually invisible once healing has occurred. The decision between an open and endoscopic technique depends on the desires of the patient, degree of aging or descent of the brow, and the level of the hairline. Often the brow lift is done in conjunction with upper eyelid surgery to fully rejuvenate the brow-eyelid complex.
