Do your friends and loved ones comment that you look tired or grumpy, even when you feel happy and refreshed? This is something Dr. Bogdan hears during many consultations with patients who come in seeking facial rejuvenation. The upper face, which is so crucial to our facial expression, is one of the first areas to succumb to the signs of aging, but it is also an area that can be substantially improved through a procedure known as brow or forehead lift. Dallas-Fort Worth plastic surgeon Dr. Bogdan performs brow lifts to correct the deep, horizontal forehead lines, vertical frown lines, and drooping eyelids that contribute to a fatigued or even stern expression.
The brow lift is a procedure that is designed to raise the eyebrows into a more youthful position. This effectively "opens up" the eyes and relieves that fatigued, scowling look. Plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Bogdan specializes in facial procedures such as the brow lift, and also performs rejuvenation procedures such as rhinoplasty and face lift. He has trained extensively with some of the leaders in aesthetic plastic surgery, and he has acquired advanced techniques which he uses in all of his facial plastic surgery procedures.
If you are interested in undergoing a brow lift, request a consultation with Dr. Michael Bogdan, a plastic surgeon specializing in facial aesthetic surgery.

The purpose of a forehead or brow lift is to restore a more youthful appearance to the upper face, which is one of the first areas to succumb to the effects of aging. The brow lift does just what the name implies - it lifts the brow. Beyond that, the procedure effectively makes the forehead skin tighter, smoothing out horizontal lines, and reducing the droopiness of the upper eyelids. Furthermore, the vertical lines between the eyes, or "frown lines" are also diminished, resulting in an overall refreshed and rejuvenated appearance in the upper face. This procedure also creates some weakening of the muscles that cause frown lines, an effect similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, but far longer-lasting.

There are both traditional and endoscopic approaches to brow lift procedures, and each has pro’s and con’s. The brow lift can elevate the eyebrow position, reduce both horizontal and vertical forehead lines, and move the hairline forward if you have a high forehead. Some of the forehead muscles are weakened, which will cause them to contract less after surgery, eliminating the frowning or fatigued appearance. The procedure can be combined with other eyelid or facial procedures, such as eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). The outpatient procedure requires approximately 45 minutes to an hour and a half of surgical time.
