What is a Brow Lift?
Brow lift surgery, sometimes called a forehead lift, results in a younger and smoother brow appearance. There are several different types of brow lift surgeries you can discuss with Dr. Siegel to determine which option will achieve your desired results. Coronal or traditional brow lifts and endoscopic brow lifts are the most common techniques in brow lift procedures.
Coronal Brow Lift
The coronal brow lift is the classic version, drawing an incision along the hairline from ear to ear. These procedures may be appropriate for those with lower foreheads with the added benefit of lifting the hairline. Though it is the oldest brow lift procedure, it has fallen out of favor, replaced by the less invasive endoscopic brow lift.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
During this procedure, a small endoscope often attached to a camera is used so that the surgeon may closely monitor the tissue to remove and the location of nerves. An endoscopic brow lift involves several smaller incisions, and a shorter recovery time. This type of brow lift has become the “go-to” choice for many facial plastic surgeons who use advanced techniques, as does Dr. Siegel.

Dr. Siegel will take the time to listen to your needs and create a plan of action to help you achieve the results you desire. If you notice any of the following, you may be a candidate for a brow lift in Houston.
- Low, sagging brows that make you appear angry or tired
- Pronounced creases or folds horizontally in your forehead
- Frown line between your eyes and above your nose
- Extra skin or drooping tissue above your eyes
Recovery from a Brow Lift
Recovery from your Houston brow lift involves very little pain. However, you may experience the sensation of tightness and numbness in the early stages. After the surgery, your forehead will be wrapped in bandages that will be removed one to two days later. The stitches will be removed in one to two weeks.
You may experience bruising and swelling that may get worse in the first two days but will subside completely after two to three weeks. You will need to sleep face up with your head elevated for the first two days and you may need to use ice packs to help reduce the swelling.
