Brow Lift Dallas, Texas

Over time deep creases, lines, wrinkles and sagging skin can worsen on our foreheads, causing many patients to lose confidence in their facial appearance.

Dr. Liland helps his Dallas Brow Lift patients to restore a younger-looking complexion by lifting and tightening the brow.

What is a Brow Lift?

A Brow Lift, corrects the sagging or low position of the eyebrows, softens horizontal creases across the forehead, and erases the expression of worry and anger that can result from frown lines. Brow lifts have a 85% worth-it rating on realself.

During a brow lift procedure, the muscles and tissues that cause the drooping are removed or altered to smooth the forehead, raise the eyebrows, and minimize frown lines. Dr. Liland uses the conventional surgical method in which minimal incisions are hidden just behind the hairline giving a more relaxed and refreshed appearance.

There is no age limit for a brow lift. However, it is most commonly performed on men and women in the 40-60 year age range. A brow lift can be performed in conjunction with other cosmetic surgery procedures such as a Facelift, Neck Lift, and/or Eyelid Surgery.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Brow Lift?

If considering a brow lift procedure, you could be a good candidate if you:

  • Have realistic expectations about the brow lift procedure
  • Are in good health, emotionally stable, and do not have any pre-existing medical conditions
  • Have sagging or low position of the eyebrows
  • Dislike the appearance of deep horizontal creases on the forehead
  • Wish to address frown lines
  • Fully understand the brow lift procedure

Preparing For The Procedure

Before the Consultation

Before your consultation, we recommend that our Dallas Brow Lift patients research the procedure so they are clear on their aims for the surgery. Having photos of your ideal outcome to show Dr. Liland during the consultation is beneficial so he can clearly understand your ideal outcome. Any questions or concerns should also be written down so you remember to discuss them during the consultation.


During the consultation, Dr. David Liland will assess physical and emotional health, discuss expectations regarding the brow lift, examine the bone structure, the underlying tissues of the face, skin elasticity, tone, and the muscle activity of the entire forehead. You will be able to discuss the brow lift procedure, the incisions, and the risks involved with the procedure. Additionally, Dr. Liland will show several pre and post-op pictures of the brow lift procedure.

Before the Procedure

It is important that our Dallas Brow Lift patients do not smoke for at least six weeks prior to their procedure to reduce the risk of complications occurring from the surgery. Additionally, patients should not take any medication that contains aspirin, vitamin E, weight loss medication, or Chinese herbs for two weeks before the procedure. A complete drug list will be provided on your pre-op appointment date.

Recovery From a Brow Lift

Immediately following your surgery an adult should drive you home and stay with you for the first couple of days. You will initially have bandages across your face and an appointment will be made with Dr. Liland to remove these dressings and any drains if they were used.

You may find that a headband has been placed around the forehead and scalp to minimize swelling. Discomfort is usually minimal and can be controlled with pain medication. Within a week the stitches or clips will be removed, most of the bruising will disappear, and the swelling will continue to subside. Within three weeks, numbness and itching will start to diminish as the nerves continue to heal. Additionally, Dallas Brow Lift patients should avoid exposure to direct sunlight and consider using sunblock.
