Some people are dissatisfied with the appearance of lines or furrows on their forehead, but they don’t think they should go the route of the full facelift. The good news for these people is that they could have what’s called a brow or forehead lift. You do not have to be of a certain age to have a brow lift. You can have it done to correct wrinkles that are the result of stress or a heavy, sagging, unattractive brow that you were simply born with. A brow lift is often performed with other facial surgeries, such as an eyelid lift.
Before you get a brow lift, you’ll have a consultation with our plastic surgeon to make sure that you’re a good candidate for the procedure. You’ll discuss what you want from the surgery, and the doctor will tell you how the operation is done and what the likely outcome will be. We’ll also take a medical history and ask you if you take medications or have any other issue that can interfere with your healing after the surgery.
The exact details of the brow lift procedure vary from patient to patient. During the procedure, the surgeon may remove and/or tighten muscles that contribute to the wrinkles, furrows and frown lines in your forehead. He may remove excess skin and raise your eyebrows for a more attractive and youthful look.
The surgeon can also perform the procedure endoscopically. This means that a thin tube is used with a tiny light on the end that communicates with a video camera. The surgeon uses miniature tools to work on the muscles and tissue in your forehead. Sometimes, this procedure is used along with other procedures for the best results. It all depends on the unique case.
After the surgery, you can move forward with the recovery. After full healing, you can enjoy a smooth and more youthful forehead and a more rejuvenated look overall.
