Houston Brow and Forehead Lift Surgery
Do you have a brow or forehead that makes you look “tired” or “angry” even when you aren’t? As we get older, loose, sagging skin can lead to drooping of the forehead and eyebrows. In addition to having a negative impact on a person’s appearance, the sagging skin can also result in blockage to the upper field of vision and excess tissue in the upper eyelids.

The good news is that Berkeley Eye Center oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Aida Bounama offers treatments and procedures that can tighten and lift the skin of the brow and forehead, giving our patients a more awake, alert and youthful appearance.

You’ll be pleasantly surprised at the natural look we can achieve.

And the results achieved by Dr. Bounama and her team will endure for years.
Our highly trained Houston oculoplastic surgeon will give each patient a personal evaluation, with recommendations based on their individual goals and needs.
Types of Brow and Forehead Lift Procedures
We offer several different brow/forehead lift procedures, including:
Endoscopic brow lift is a popular, minimally invasive procedure in which the oculoplastic surgeon uses an endoscope, or tiny camera, to view the underlying structures during surgery. Making 3 to 5 small, nearly invisible 1cm incisions behind the hairline, we elevate the entire forehead, shift the brows into a more youthful position and remove any muscles or other tissue contributing to your lines and wrinkles.
Trichophytic brow lift is a procedure in which a portion of the forehead skin is removed to elevate the eyebrows. A Trichophytic brow lift isi for patients with higher hairlines.
Lateral or temporal brow lift raises the brows to a more youthful position, giving the patient’s brow a more relaxed and refreshed look.
Coronal brow lift is one of the most permanent brow lift techniques; a single incision is placed on the scalp from one ear to the other, and the excess skin is marked and removed. This type of lift is ideal for individuals with smaller foreheads who are also interested in lifting their hairline.
Non-surgical brow lift raises the brows slightly using Botox, Dysport and other neurotoxin injection techniques. Best used for younger patients who are just beginning to show signs of eyelid descent or patients who are unable to undergo surgery. The effects are mild and temporary.
What to Know About Houston Brow and Forehead Lift Surgery
Brow and forehead procedures are performed as out surgery and typically take only a couple of hours to complete. Non-surgical techniques take even less time. Bruising and swelling are common, while serious complications are extremely rare. Depending on the procedure, recovery times can last from a few hours for non-surgical lifts to a month for surgical procedures.
Most insurance plans do not cover cosmetic surgery. However, in some cases your insurance company will pay for procedures to correct or improve sagging foreheads and brow which interfere with vision.
Dr. Bounama and the staff of the Berkeley Eye Center’s oculoplastics clinic are committed to delivering outstanding care to every patient they treat. If your brow or forehead is affecting your vision or your appearance, please call us to schedule an exam to discuss your options.
