A brow lift is a surgical procedure to tighten loosened muscles in the brow, remove excess skin that leads to creases and lines and subtly lift the brows for a refreshed, more youthful look. The procedure can be performed endoscopically to avoid longer scars.

Is your brow appearing heavy and lined?

The forehead can be one of the first areas to wrinkle and show age over time, but a brow lift performed by Dr. Kim in The Woodlands can smooth out your forehead and raise your brows to bring attention away from your forehead and lead to a more balanced, youthful face.


What is a brow lift?

Natural, discreet anti-aging

Dr. Sugene Kim performs brow lift surgery at her practice in The Woodlands to gently raise the tissues of the forehead and give the area above the eyes a more refreshed look. Also called a forehead lift, this surgery can correct or reduce conditions such as sagging brows, forehead lines and furrows.

As a double board-certified plastic surgeon and one of the top facial rejuvenation surgeons in Conroe, Spring, and throughout the greater Houston area, Dr. Kim established SGK Plastic Surgery to specialize in face and body enhancements and is known as being among the finest plastic surgeons practicing in The Woodlands.

Who should consider a brow lift?

The best brow lift candidates are those in overall good health and are concerned with signs of aging in the upper face. While most people who have brow lift surgery are age forty or over, men and women of a younger age may also benefit from the procedure. Individuals with inherited conditions, such as a naturally low brow or furrowed lines above the nose, can look more engaged and alert with a brow lift.

How is a brow lift performed?

During a brow lift, the muscles and tissues in the forehead are removed or sculpted to smooth the area, raise the eyebrows, and minimize frown lines. Dr. Kim will help you decide which of the following approaches may be best to achieve your cosmetic goals.

Traditional brow lift

In a traditional brow lift, the incision starts at ear level and runs across the top of the forehead down to the other ear. The incision is usually hidden behind the hairline so that the scar should not be visible after healing. If your hairline is high or receding, the incision may be placed just at the hairline. For bald people, Dr. Kim may use a mid-scalp incision that follows the natural pattern of the skull bones.

Working through the incision, the skin of the forehead is carefully lifted so that the excess tissue can be removed, and the forehead muscles can be altered or released. The eyebrows may also be elevated, and excess skin will be trimmed away to help create a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Endoscopic brow lift

In an endoscopic forehead lift, Dr. Kim makes 3 to 5 short scalp incisions, each incision less than an inch in length. She then inserts an endoscope, a pencil-like camera device connected to a television monitor, through one of the incisions, allowing her to have a clear view of the muscles and tissues beneath the skin.

Another instrument is used to lift the forehead skin, muscles, and underlying tissues to produce a smoother appearance. The eyebrows may also be lifted and secured into their higher position by sutures beneath the skin’s surface or by temporary fixation screws placed behind the hairline.
