Excess skin on the forehead isn’t a condition that affects every adult, but those who do experience it become more self-conscious because it detracts from their appearance. Skin folds and creases on the forehead are generally caused by a loss of elasticity in the skin, less supportive subdermal tissues and the effects of gravity. These crease lines can make a person look angry or upset even though that isn’t the case. The problem can also affect the ability to see properly, especially if the folds are causing a lowering of the upper eyelids. To put it simply, forehead lifts were designed to correct these issues.
How a Forehead Lift Helps
There are different types of forehead lift procedures. Some use more traditional methods, while others use less invasive methods. With that being said, forehead lifts all have the same end goal, which is to lift the upper portion of the face. This is usually done by removing excess skin and tissue and then pulling the remaining skin upward.
The Consultation for Forehead Lifts
We always schedule a consultation with the client before agreeing to perform this surgical procedure. Since everyone’s condition and situation is different, a specialized and customized procedure must be planned out for each individual. During the consultation, X-rays or photos of the face may be taken so that we can decide exactly what needs to be done before, during and after the procedure.
The recovery time for forehead lifts varies from patient to patient. The most important thing to remember is to take it easy and follow our team’s instructions regarding healing. Once you have fully recovered from your procedure, you can enjoy a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
