Brow lift or Browpexy
Conveniently located to serve Houston
In general, a youthful eyebrow rests above the orbital rim with a gradual arch laterally. The lateral end or “brow tail” is located higher than the medial, creating a feminine look. However, men tend to be more horizontally positioned. Brow lift refers to any procedure that lifts the eyebrows and may include a forehead lift to reverse the effects of gravity. The goal is to restore a more youthful contour to your eyebrows, upper lids, and upper third of your face.
Your Brow Lift Consultation
Before a date can be set for your brow lift, you will need to meet with Dr. Daisy Ayim for an informative consultation. This will include an examination, an in-depth discussion of the procedure and your aesthetic goals, and an evaluation of your overall health status.
The Browpexy Procedure
There are various brow lift methods which your cosmetic surgeon will discuss with you.. Browpexy is one innovative technique based on the approach that anchors the underlying brow soft tissue to the bone for stabilization. The Browpexy is done through an upper lid (BUL), which means it can be done simultaneously with an upper eyelid surgery using the same incision site. A Browpexy will return your brow to an anatomical, aesthetically- appealing location on the upper face. Browpexy provides an excellent outcome without a traditional coronal, scalp, or forehead incision.
This procedure is performed under anesthesia to ensure that the patient does not feel any pain or discomfort. Once the incisions have been made, Dr. Ayim addresses excess skin and sagging muscle tissue. Finally, the incisions are closed. Special clips, skin adhesives, or sutures (removable or absorbable) are used to close the incisions.
Brow Lift Recovery and Healing
Dr. Ayim will give you post-surgical care instructions that must be followed closely to ensure proper healing. During recovery, it’s best not to engage in any activity that may cause injury to the operative area. It will also be important to avoid physically taxing activities and to take time off from work until cleared to return.
You will be able to see the partial results of your forehead lift surgery immediately after the procedure is completed. However, swelling will be present for a time, so full results cannot be seen until all swelling has ameliorated. Keeping one’s head elevated above their heart at all times helps with this process, as does the use of cold compresses as recommended.
Inflammatory substances such as alcohol and tobacco can impair the immune system and make the recovery process slower than normal. Because of this, they must be avoided during the healing process.

Brow Lift Cost
When making a decision regarding whether or not to undergo a brow lift, cost is always a consideration. The price of your forehead lift procedure will be based on anesthesia fees, total surgical time, techniques employed, and many other factors.
