Achieve a More Refreshed, Energetic Facial Appearance With a Brow Lift in Houston

As we age, it’s natural for our bodies to begin producing less collagen and elastin, both of which are important proteins for our skin's health, structure, and complexion. Eventually, this can lead to loose, sagging skin, which often shows up around the forehead and eyebrows. Unfortunately, developing skin laxity in these areas can make us look perpetually tired and significantly older than we actually are. If you’re dealing with these issues and would like to refresh the appearance of your upper face, a brow lift in Houston performed by Dr. Angela Sturm could be the answer.

What Is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift in Houston, also known as a forehead lift, is a cosmetic surgical procedure performed to improve the eyebrows' symmetry, contour, and position. The surgery also rejuvenates the skin of the upper face, greatly reducing the appearance of forehead wrinkles and frown lines.

During the procedure, Dr. Sturm’s general aim is to ensure that the eyebrows are lifted to a youthful position and kept symmetrical. Using small, inconspicuous incisions made behind the hairline, she is able to pull the facial skin upward, which lifts the brows and creates a smoother, firmer texture. This also allows her to eliminate any fine lines and wrinkles around the forehead and between the eyebrows.

Depending on the needs and preferences of the patient, there are three different surgical brow lift techniques that Dr. Sturm can perform:

Endoscopic Brow Lift

During an endoscopic brow lift, Dr. Sturm makes tiny incisions beneath the hairline and inserts a tiny tubular camera known as an endoscope. This allows her to make precise adjustments to the facial skin while avoiding the nerves of the eyebrows, which allows for exceptionally natural-looking results.

Coronal Brow Lift

The coronal brow lift, which is the more conventional brow lift technique, requires an incision that stretches all the way across the scalp from ear to ear. This gives Dr. Sturm increased access to the facial skin and tissue, allowing for more dramatic results. The coronal brow lift is a good choice if you’re looking to lift the position of your hairline as well as your brows. This brow lift technique is the most invasive of the procedures and requires the longest recovery period.

Temporal Brow Lift

If you’re seeking only subtle enhancements to the position of your eyebrows, the temporal brow lift may be your best option. During this procedure, Dr. Sturm uses the same small incisions that she’d use for the endoscopic brow lift to elevate the lateral portions of the eyebrows. This results in gentle, natural-looking improvements to the contours of the brows but does not focus on the forehead.
