Forehead Lift for Younger Looking Skin
A forehead lift, or brow lift, works to reverse the effects of gravity and aging as well as tighten up the forehead’s soft tissues to bring back a more youthful appearance to the forehead, eyebrows, and eyelids. There are different forehead lift techniques, some of which include various length incisions and sometimes involve the use of an endoscope.
If a droopy or sagging brow hinders facial expressions or prematurely ages you, a forehead lift may be the perfect solution for revitalizing the upper part of the face. Each year, many individuals undergo forehead lift surgery for a younger, refreshed look.
When to Consider Getting a Forehead Lift
- Fatty tissue or excess skin is hanging over your eyes
- Drooping or lower positioned eyebrows create a look that is sad, angry, or tired
- Visible furrows or frown lines between the eyebrows and/or along the top of the nose
- Deep creases that run horizontally along the forehead
Benefits of a Forehead Lift
- The eyebrows are raised and repositioned to a more youthful and alert position
- A sagging or low brow that visibly hangs over the upper eyelid is repositioned
- Self-confidence is increased
Who is a Good Candidate for a Forehead Lift?
For individuals who have excess or drooping skin in the forehead and eye areas, a forehead lift may be an appropriate procedure. Those who are in good health, do not smoke or are willing to quit, do not have any major health conditions or medications that could impair surgery and who have realistic expectations are typically approved for surgery.
During your consultation, our medical team will help you determine whether forehead lift surgery is right for you.
The Results of a Forehead Lift
You should expect to notice the full results of this procedure after approximately six months, when the hairline and scalp incisions are completely healed and swelling has subsided. The aging process cannot be prevented completely, but wrinkles and lines in the frown line and brow area will likely never be as visible again and may only slightly return over the following years. A healthy lifestyle and sensible sun protection will help prolong the results of your lift for a more youthful look over the long term.
