Brow Lift in Fredericksburg, VA

What is a Brow Lift?

Surgery to lift the brow (also called a forehead lift or browplasty) is a popular aesthetic treatment that helps create a higher brow appearance, which provides a refreshed look to the upper portion of the face. A sagging brow can often create a tired or angry appearance. A brow lift surgically corrects a drooping brow to give patients a rejuvenated face by removing excess skin from the forehead while raising the eyebrows. Dr. Howard Heppe, Dr. Harold Bautista, and Dr. Pejman Aflaki are plastic surgeons in Fredericksburg, VA who have completed brow lift surgery on both women and men to give them a younger appearance. Wrinkle fillers and relaxers are frequently performed in conjunction with a forehead lift at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg for ideal results, producing a softer and smoother appearance.

How Is a Brow Lift Performed?

Prior to surgery, anesthesia will be administered. This may be done under anesthesia on the extent of the procedure. The incision used during a browplasty is determined, depending on the degree of skin sag, whether the forehead is addressed, and the appearance of the patient's hairline. Some of the different techniques to consider:

  • Traditional Incision
    Also known as the open lift incision, this places the surgical incision at the top of the head behind the hairline. This incision not only masks scarring but also provides a certain amount of lift control during the surgery. The traditional incision suits those with both a sagging brow and frown lines. The traditional brow lift is the preferred technique for patients at risk of a receding hairline.
  • Trichophytic Incision
    The trichophytic incision is placed right along the hairline. A trichophytic incision permits a more dramatic lift in the brow for men and women who have a low risk for hairline recession.
  • Lateral Brow Lift
    Also known as a temporal brow lift, the lateral method places the incision inside the hairline slightly above the temples. The lateral incision allows the outer sections of the brow to be treated and is best for sagging that is visible in the outer brow. A temporal brow lift also helps to correct Crow’s feet.
  • Endoscopic Forehead Lift
    The endoscopic lift is a more modern method used in a brow lift. It makes multiple small incisions in the hairline and inserts a tool known as an endoscope, which moves to the eyebrow to release its attachments. Using the endoscope's camera, the brow tissue is repositioned with stitches to lift the brow to a better position.

Saw Dr. Bautista for breast augmentation and extremely pleased with my experience. He was patient with my questions and educated me on realistic results. I’m overwhelmingly happy with the outcome and without hesitation recommend him!

I had such a great experience here. Everyone in the office is so helpful and professional. I’ve had 5 large babies and had quite the muffin top situation going on. I can’t believe the difference the tummy tuck made. I’ve heard of other people traveling far away to get procedures done, but I’m super grateful we have such a high caliber plastic surgery office here in Fredericksburg!

I had a breast augmentation done in May and I could not be happier. Dr Heppe and his staff were very professional, helpful and supportive in making sure that what I wanted is what I got. I’ve waited my entire adult life for this surgery and would do it again with this team in a second. A+ all the way around!

The whole staff was amazing. I had a breast lift with augmentation and I love the results. I am no longer embarrassed about my chest. I also had filler under my eyes and everyone at work has commented on how rested I look. My only regret is I wish I would have done this procedure years ago.
