A brow lift will transform your face. In addition, it can also dramatically improve your self esteem if performed by a leading Houston Plastic Surgeon like Dr. Sukkar who is always looking to give natural lasting results.
If an aging brow is causing you to look older far before your time, you may want to consider a brow lift with Dr. Sukkar. It tends to produce incredible results for patients who feature:
- A sagging brow
- A perpetually tired or angry appearance
- Droopy upper eyelids
- Deep forehead lines
- Brow furrows
In general, most of our Houston brow lift patients are in between 40 and 50 years of age, and possess noticeable signs of aging around the eyes and forehead. However, younger patients in their 20s and 30s may also be candidates, if genetic factors and other issues are causing them to age prematurely.
Before and After Photos
Dr. Sukkar performs endoscopic brow lifts for his Houston patients, which means the procedure is minimally-invasive and uses the smallest incisions possible. To begin your procedure for brow lift Houston plastic surgeon, Dr. Sukkar, will administer general anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety, before making three to four minute incisions well-hidden within the hairline. He will then insert an endoscope, or a tiny camera, through one of the incisions, so he can visualize your underlying structures on a large screen in the operating room. Using a series of tiny instruments, Dr. Sukkar will then elevate your forehead skin, shift your brows to a more youthful position and remove any muscles that are contributing to your lines and wrinkles. Once he’s successfully refreshed and rejuvenated your forehead, he will close the incisions, trim away excess skin and place bandages to protect the area.
Brow lift surgery addresses several aging-related concerns in the upper face. Patients can reverse brow sagging, deep lines on the forehead, drooping upper eyelids, and brow furrows simultaneously.
Not only will you look younger, but you will look friendlier and more energetic. As our Houston brow lift surgery offers significant facial rejuvenation, you can expect to experience a substantial increase in self-confidence and excitement for all that life has to offer.
Candidates for brow lift surgery are adults of either sex who would like to address skin laxity in the upper portion of the face.
Candidates should be generally healthy and have realistic expectations for their procedure, recovery, and results. It is also essential that patients considering a brow lift can take ample time off from work to recover from surgery. There is no strict rule regarding the ideal age to get a brow lift. While many patients are in their 40s and 50s, younger patients may also be candidates.
To provide the utmost comfort and safety during your surgery, your Houston plastic surgeon will first administer general anesthesia.
Once your anesthesia has taken effect, your surgeon will begin your brow lift procedure. Endoscopic brow lift surgery at The Clinic for Plastic Surgery allows for the smallest possible incisions. Your surgeon will make three to four of these tiny incisions along your hairline, where you will be able to conceal them easily after they heal. Then, via one of these incisions, your surgeon will insert an endoscope to view the treatment area’s underlying structures.
Your surgeon will meticulously lift and shift your skin to a more youthful position and may remove small muscles contributing to your concerns. Your surgeon will close your incisions, trimming away excess skin, and dress your incisions. As soon as you wake up from anesthesia, you will be able to head home to heal. Before your surgery, you will need to arrange for a close friend or relative to drive you home and provide care for 24 hours after your procedure.
After your endoscopic brow lift with Dr. Sukkar, you can look forward to a swift recovery with very minimal side effects.
You’ll be able to return home several hours after your procedure is complete, at which point you should plan to stay home from work for three to seven days. During this period, it’s normal to experience some pain, swelling and bruising – however these effects will all disappear very quickly. In the meantime, you can easily manage any discomfort with pain medication prescribed by Dr. Sukkar. Within three to four days, you’ll be able to apply makeup again, and you’ll likely begin feeling comfortable enough to be seen in public. After one week, you’ll return to the office to have your stitches removed, at which point Dr. Sukkar will evaluate your progress and provide you with personalized guidance regarding the next steps in your recovery process. In general, our Houston brow lift patients can expect to resume many of your daily activities at this time, with a full return to more strenuous exercise within three weeks.
You will realize the full extent of your results as soon as you heal. Your brow lift results are permanent. Although a brow lift cannot prevent you from aging, it can essentially reset the clock so that you will always appear younger than you would without a brow lift.

How can I prepare for my brow lift?
Two weeks before your surgery, you should avoid NSAIDs and other substances that may thin the blood. You may also pick up your prescribed pain medication before your surgery so that it will be available to you immediately after your procedure.
Can I combine my brow lift with other procedures?
Absolutely! While there are many procedures you can include in your surgery, one of the most common additions to brow lift surgery is blepharoplasty, which removes excess tissue from the upper eyelid to achieve a more youthful and wide-awake appearance.
