What is a Brow Lift?
Surgery to lift the brow is a popular treatment that helps create a lifted brow position, which provides a refreshed look to the upper portion of the face. A droopy brow can frequently create an angry or tired appearance, leading many to feel self-conscious or embarrassed. This procedure surgically improves the brow to create a rejuvenated face by removing excess skin and raising the eyebrows. Dr. Kevin Hanz is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Dallas, TX who has performed brow lifts on both men and women to create a more youthful look. Dermal fillers and BOTOX are commonly performed along with brow lift surgery at Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery for optimal results, creating a softer and smoother appearance.

"AirSculpt Waist, Flanks, Hips Was Lifechanging! - I've always struggled with losing unwanted fat and weight in my love handles, hips, and sides. I had researched so many procedure options and by far Airsculpt had the best results for the price+safety. My overall procedure and post care went great! I had very minimal swelling and I am over the moon with my results! I would recommend to anyone searching for permanent results and next to no down time involved. Also, Dr. Hanz was the best! I was pretty nervous going in, and they calmed me down and explained in detail everything the procedure entailed."- N. / RealSelf / Dec 29, 2021
"I recently started Sciton Halo and Sciton BBL treatments with Amy Sanders. Amy took the time to explain each of the treatments and what to expect before, during and after treatments. Amy’s post care attention went above and beyond making herself available by phone for any and all questions and concerns. On my follow-up appointment, I was so encouraged when I realized the entire office staff was almost as excited for my results as I was. After just one treatment of both, I have already seen such a positive improvement to my face and chest areas. I live in the San Antonio area and feel my trips up to Dr. Hanz’s office for my aesthetic procedures are 100% worth it. Dr. Hanz and his staff are wonderful and I highly recommend!"- TS / Office Visit / Apr 03, 2022
"Dr. Hanz is Amazing...straight forward, exactly what we were looking for in a surgeon. His staff was pleasant and very helpful. Would go a back for any future procedures. Thank you Dr. Hanz for your help."- K.C. / Google / Jan 27, 2022
"I had gained a lot of weight during covid and with a full time job and kids I found it hard to manage healthy eating and frequent exercise. I went to Dr. Kevin Hanz and met with his amazing staff. They recommended a weight loss drug called ozempic or semiglutide. I have been taking one dose a week at home and have lost 20 pounds in 19 weeks! Nothing else has changed in my daily routine. All of my cravings for wine and snacks has completely gone away. When I do have a meal I find I only eat about half. I have had no side effects other than a little exhaustion the day after I take it. Kevin's office staff has been amazing and I would recommend this 10/10! I had tried lipo and cool sculpting in the past and lost no where near as much weight as I have on ozempic!"- L.I. / Google / Jan 26, 2023
"Shocked at Amazing Results - removed 90-95% of the sun spots and freckles - I had laser resurfacing (using Cartessa Tetra CO2 laser) to my face and chest with Dr Hanz. I owned a tanning salon for years and my sun damage was horrible. I thought this could help. I was shocked at how it removed 90-95% of the sun spots and freckles. Also diminished the “leathery” looking skin on my chest. My friends are all in disbelief of how good I look now!"- P. / RealSelf / Jan 25, 2023
Can I Get a Brow Lift?
As you age, your skin laxity diminishes and causes several areas of your face to droop. This typically impacts women and men as they'll see a drooping in their upper face. When looking at yourself in the mirror, you may want to consider a brow lift if you:
- Appear angry or tired
- Notice deep lines between your eyebrows or across the top of your nose
- Are bothered by a drooping brow
- Have excess skin hanging over your eyes
Brow lift surgery at Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery can be the right aesthetic procedure for your needs. Contact board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Hanz today for a consultation.
How Will You Perform My Brow Lift?
Prior to surgery, anesthesia will be used to provide you with comfort during your surgery. This can be done through general anesthesia or IV sedation, depending on the extent of the procedure. The incision technique used will depend on the severity of sag, if the forehead is affected, and the appearance of the patient's hairline. When deciding on which technique to use, Dr. Hanz will consider all of your concerns and aesthetic goals. After the incision, he will lift and gently pull your skin off of muscles and fat and upward, removing excess skin as needed to smooth out any sagging.
What Should I Expect After My Brow Lift?
In general, patients feel slight swelling and bruising in the upper portion of the face around the eyebrows and eyes. Cold compresses can help to diminish the inflammation. Dr. Hanz advises patients to sleep with pillows propped under their head for the first several nights after their surgery. It is critical to avoid any movement or activities that can put stress on your face. You can expect a recovery period of about 2 – 3 weeks for your brow lift. The outcome can usually be seen immediately with a refreshed appearance that looks softer, more alert, and with a visible improvement in sagging skin and fine lines in the upper half of the face.
Frequently Asked Questions about Brow Lifts
How much will a brow lift cost me?
It is better to focus on finding an experienced surgeon, like Dr. Hanz, who can give you the best results rather than go with the cheapest surgeon. The cost of brow lift surgery will vary based on the technique chosen, anesthesia, facility fees, and other factors. When your treatment plan has been created in your consultation, an estimate of costs can be made. Dr. Hanz will also go over payment methods and where to find low-interest financing to make your surgery more affordable for you.
Do I need a brow lift or facelift?
Whether you should get a facelift or brow lift will depend on your goals and where you have excess skin. You should openly talk about your goals with Dr. Hanz so he can help you choose which treatment will help you best reach those goals. Many patients who come in thinking they want a full facelift discover they would be better with a brow lift and vice versa. Using his years of experience, Dr. Hanz will confidently help you develop a treatment plan that gets you your best results.
What about nonsurgical treatments?
You may consider one of the many nonsurgical treatments, including laser skin tightening and injectables (like JUVÉDERM and BOTOX), that can give short-term improvements. However, a surgical brow lift is better if you want significant improvements and longer-lasting results. During your consultation, Dr. Hanz can go over both options so you can decide which is best for you.
What technique should I choose?
Dr. Hanz will go over surgical techniques in your consultation to help you understand the advantages. He will then help you decide on the best technique for your needs and goals. A few of the factors that may influence your technique choice are your hairline (factoring in both your current hairline, as well as your risk of developing a receding hairline), the amount of loose skin you have, and recovery time.
Will my results look natural?
If you choose an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Hanz, your brow lift will appear natural. He will create your treatment plan for your needs and goals to help you look refreshed, not tight or frozen. When performing your surgery, Dr. Hanz will focus on removing excess skin and the remaining skin and tissue will be smoothed so your results don't limit your facial expressions or lift your eyebrows too high.
