Do you often appear more haggard or stressed than you feel? Do you look in the mirror and see an angry-looking face when you're actually feeling calm and serene? Often, issues in the forehead and eyebrow region can cause problems such as these. A furrowed brow, frown lines and drooping, sagging eyebrows can create a tired, angry or sad expression that doesn't represent your true mood. Dallas, TX plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven J. White, performs brow lift surgery to correct these common signs of aging. This surgery focuses on correcting lifting the eyebrow by repositioning the forehead skin to improve the appearance of low set eyebrows. This creates an instant improvement for patients, giving them a fresher, younger, more “awakened” look. Dr. White is a seasoned brow lift surgeon and offers numerous techniques depending on the patient’s aesthetic goals and skin condition.
The best candidates for those seeking brow lift surgery, include men and/or women who have:
· Low set eyebrows that produce a “tired” or “frowning” appearance
· Sagging eyelid that is caused by a droopy brow
· Forehead wrinkles that appear near the brow
· Overall good health; non-smokers
Brow Lift Reviews
"I am a health care practitioner, and understand what is involved in achieving excellent surgical outcomes. I chose Dr. Steven White to perform my own brow lift surgery because of his truly exceptional attention to detail, and because he explained in detail WHY he would perform the procedure in a certain manner for my particular case. It is now 8 weeks post-surgery, and I am completely delighted with the results! I have also been very impressed with the excellent care I've received from Dr. White and all his staff, both before and after the procedure. I would recommend Dr. Steven White without reservation to anyone contemplating facial plastic surgery."- T.K. / Healthgrades / Feb 23, 2020

"Excited about the fact of looking younger and being treated differently, I decided to go with the best of the best and that is Dr. Steven White. After stumbling across a magazine article and hours of research I felt very confident because he is so focused on keeping patients alive, he is prepared for any and every complication that could arise. This gave me more confidence and I was able to relax plus he makes you feel like you are his only patient. Dr. White is highly respected by the nurses at the hospital and the office staff is very welcoming. After three elective surgeries, I am more excited to see my reflection in the mirror and feeling younger. I am happy with the results."- G.R. / Google / Jun 11, 2020
"I've had the pleasure of having Dr. White as my surgeon 2x now (tummy tuck and 1st half of facial rejuvenation) and will have the second half of facial rejuvenation (lower face and neck) in June. He is the ONLY surgeon I would trust with my body and life. His motivation is to get the best possible outcome with every surgery. He is not only a fantastic surgeon but also a caring man with a great sense of humor and is a patient's biggest cheerleader.His positivity is infectious. My tummy is still flat after almost 2 yrs.Yes he is more expensive but worth the money.He is generous with his post-op follow ups and time.The ladies that run the office: Melanie, Jamie and Ashley and not only beautiful but intelligent, well-trained and compassionate.I now live in Colorado but he is my only choice for a plastic surgeon. His consultations alone are worth it because he explains so much about each procedure and has phenomenal videos."- C.W. / Healthgrades / May 02, 2022
"I had a breast augmentation done with Dr. White about 12 years ago and have been very happy with how natural feeling/looking my results have been for so many years. As I’ve gotten older and gratefully become a Mom, my body has changed so decided to pursue options for firming up other parts of my body. I work out daily (HIIT workouts) and have cleaned up my diet, but now well into my 40’s, still had parts of my body that wouldn’t firm up as preferred. I read and studied many cosmetic surgery articles about what I thought would fix my body problems, created a priority list, and then scheduled a consultation with Dr. White. Thankfully, I didn’t have to waste time researching other Plastic Surgeons because I have always known him to be “my guy” especially since I’m living proof of his superior artistic skills (per my breast augmentation 12 years ago). Dr. White attentively listened to “my plan” for tackling my concerns and we both got a good laugh because I was very prescriptive about what we were going to do and when. After the mini comedy, Dr. White shared his expert suggestions which made much more sense to me. He also explained the why’s behind my selected modifications so I understood how much more effective it would be to focus on my arms first then tackle the upper part of my face (instead of the entire face at once) then undergo a tummy tuck solo instead of including lower body lipo simultaneously. Although I wanted everything done at once to get it all over with, I understood Dr. White’s strategy and how critical the healing process is to gaining natural and long-lasting results (much like my breast augmentation). I am 5.5 weeks post my arm lipo procedure and extremely happy with the results! I have followed every bit of the post care recovery guidance provided by Dr. White & couldn’t have imagined a better outcome. I have had many questions leading up to the surgery and mostly as I was going thru the healing process…how extremely grateful I am to the beautiful support staff ladies at the office who have always answered my calls and responded to my emails in an expedient fashion to help me feel at ease. I am now a couple of weeks from my facial rejuvenation procedure (slight forehead reduction, eyebrow lift and upper/lower blepharoplasty) and know without a doubt that I will once again be in the best hands of Dr. White, Dr. Zipper (anesthesiologist) and their support staff. I will author another review 5.5 weeks after my upcoming procedure to share my results and will also do the same after my tummy tuck successfully concludes, scheduled for mid-October. If you are reading this review and are going back and forth about who you want to select as your surgeon, STOP! You’re wasting your time, energy and money quite frankly. Dr. White is the best in the nation and my results from 12 years ago and 5.5 weeks ago are proof!"- T.T. / Google / Aug 07, 2021
What to Expect
During the initial consultation, we will evaluate the overall health of the skin, which will include skin quality and looseness. He will also evaluate the folds and wrinkles of the forehead and hairline, as well as the position of the inner, middle and outer portions of the eyebrows and the upper eyelids. This evaluation will help him to determine if a brow lift is the best procedure, and eliminate if an eyelid lift is needed instead. During a brow lift, one of several possible surgical techniques will be used. Some common incision approaches include along the natural upper eyelid crease or the brow’s hairline. A slightly more invasive approach is a coronal incision, which runs from ear to ear underneath the patient’s hair. The endoscopic brow lift is most often used, which is the least invasive approach.
Brow Lift Recovery
Swelling and bruising are expected on the forehead and eyes after brow lift surgery, although this will vary between patients. This swelling subsides within the first 1-2 weeks. The forehead may have some decreased sensation that will improve over time. Most patients can resume modest activity in 7-10 days, with a complete recovery in about 3-4 weeks.
Although it is considered cosmetic in nature, in some cases where vision is affected because of sagging skin, insurance coverage may be a consideration. This is not guaranteed and varies by surgical case.
