to Provide You the Personal Care You Deserve
A lifetime of facial expressions and gravity can cause your eyebrows to sag and deep creases and frown lines to form across your forehead and between your eyebrows. Even when your face is at rest, you may start to look perpetually grouchy, somber and fatigued whether you feel that way or not. A brow lift, or forehead lift, raises the skin on your forehead, upper eyelids and eyebrows to restore your brow to a more youthful position and lessen the appearance of wrinkles.*
Dr. David Dellinger holds board certifications in both plastic/reconstructive and general surgery, and has extensive experience in performing facial plastic surgery procedures over his two decades in practice. At Elysian Plastic Surgery, Dr. Dellinger works with men and women in the Austin area and throughout Texas who are interested in looking naturally refreshed with the help of a brow lift.

The best candidates for a brow lift are healthy men and women who have realistic expectations and are bothered by droopy skin and wrinkles in the forehead. A brow lift may be right for you if any part of your brow is sagging, you have vertical wrinkles between your eyes or you dislike how the changes in your forehead may make you look angry or sad.
A brow lift can improve the position of your eyebrows but you won’t see a drastic improvement in your eyelids or crow’s feet. For this reason, Dr. Dellinger may recommend combining your brow lift with upper eyelid surgery to remove excess skin in your eyelids and BOTOX® to temporarily smooth away crow’s feet.*
Although a brow lift can be performed with conscious sedation, most people are under general anesthesia during the procedure. A brow lift can be performed using different techniques, though two common ways are the open brow and endoscopic lift:
For either type of forehead lift, your scars should be concealed in your hairline.*
You may have some swelling, bruising or temporary numbness after your brow lift but you should be able to go home the same day or the day after. You should plan to rest and recuperate for 10 to 14 days, though you may feel well enough to go back to work after a week. Keep your head elevated, go for gentle walks to encourage healing, avoid demanding physical activities and don’t apply ice or heat to your forehead. You may be able to resume all of your regular activities after about a month.*
You should notice a change in your forehead just after your brow lift, although seeing your final results takes more time. Your new look should be long-lasting and may continue to improve over the next 6 months as the swelling subsides and your incisions fade.*
