You may be an ideal candidate for a brow lift if you have recently noticed vertical lines between your eyebrows or wrinkles across your forehead.

A dedicated surgeon will take care to provide you detailed and accurate answers to all your questions so that you can make a better decision. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides brow lift surgery to patients in Houston, Texas, and surrounding locations.
Are you experienced in performing forehead lift?
It is comforting to know that the cosmetic surgeon performing your procedure has vast experience. They should have done the procedure several times. Ask the surgeon for results on past patients. Also, ask the plastic surgeon the number of times they have performed this particular surgery. You should make sure that they are board certified and fully qualified for performing the surgery.
How will you perform the procedure?
You should know what the procedure entails before you decide to get it done. Forehead and brow lift plastic surgery procedure can be performed in several ways. It is usually performed in such a way that complements your forehead shape and hairline position.
Different methods will be reviewed by your plastic surgeon. Most patients make ideal candidates for endoscopic brow lift procedures. Small incisions are made in this procedure which gets hidden within the hair. Lines forming between the brows will start relaxing creating a gentle look.
What is the ideal recovery time?
Generally, patients get to resume work and other activities within a week of the procedure. Bruising and swelling associated with forehead and brow lifts is minimal. It should go away on its own within ten days.
What are common side effects?
There are potential side effects to a brow lift as with any other surgery. However, all patients don’t have the same experience. This makes it crucial to remember that side effects can vary from patient to patient. Some patients experience slight headaches after getting a forehead lift or brow lift. These can generally be controlled by OTC pain medications.
How long should I expect the results to last?
Results of a forehead or brow lift cosmetic surgery can last for years if the surgery is performed by an experienced surgeon. However, you won’t stop aging which may impact the results. You should consider leading a healthy lifestyle and wearing sunscreen if you want to extend the results. You should also eat a vitamin rich diet and quit smoking.
Can I see before and after images of brow lift procedure?
Patients may be unsure of the kind of outcomes to expect from a brow lift procedure. This is why you should ask your plastic surgeon to show you before and after images. This will give you a realistic idea of what to expect from the procedure.
Candidates should avoid smoking for a few weeks prior to and after the surgery. Female cosmetic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak receives patients from Houston, Texas, and nearby areas for brow lift surgery.
