When you're young, you may take for granted your smooth forehead, arched brows, and beautifully shaped eyelids. Then along comes gravity — and, together with loss of skin elasticity, you develop forehead wrinkles, drooping eyebrows, and sagging skin over the eyelids. This can produce a "permanent frown" appearance, as some patients have described it. Dr. Bogdan can restore a more rested, alert, and youthful appearance to the upper face with brow lift at his Dallas practice.
Dr. Michael Bogdan has the knowledge, experience and skills needed to perform this procedure so that you look naturally refreshed. From exploring the best way to achieve your aesthetic goals to discussing complementary procedures, he will guide you through every step of your experience.

Your Brow Lift Procedure Options
Dr. Bogdan designs your brow lift procedure to achieve a comprehensive rejuvenation of the upper face. For example, Dr. Bogdan may complement your brow lift with BOTOX® Cosmetic to reduce forehead wrinkles or eyelid surgery to correct puffy, sagging, or wrinkled lids.
To minimize scarring and risks while and achieve the greatest benefits, Dr. Bogdan typically performs endoscopic brow lift rather than the older approach, which involves a long incision across the entire scalp. The endoscopic technique uses a tiny camera, inserted through short incisions hidden behind the hairline. Viewing the surgery on a video monitor, Dr. Bogdan moves the scalp tissue up and back to smooth forehead lines and restore a more youthful position to the brows. He also makes adjustments to the muscles, relaxing them to reduce frown lines. He then holds the scalp skin in place with tiny stitches or specialized absorbable anchoring devices.
This option is particularly effective if it is your first brow lift. If it is a secondary brow lift, Dr. Bogdan generally recommends a hairline brow lift, which involves smoothing your forehead skin and elevating your eyebrows while moving your hairline forward. This technique improves a high forehead and corrects a receding hairline.
Recovery and Results
After your brow lift, Dr. Bogdan recommends that you keep your head elevated to reduce swelling and facilitate healing. You will return to his office in about a week to check on your progress and have some stitches removed. You can also resume your regular routine at that point.
After they have healed, Dr. Bogdan's patients love the natural but noticeable results he achieves through brow lift. Many of them are pleasantly surprised to discover how these changes revitalize their entire appearance.
