Facial Rejuvenation >> Forehead Lift
Forehead lift, also known as brow lift, can give the upper third of the face the same youthful appearance that facelift gives the lower two-thirds. A sagging forehead with deep horizontal lines can make a person look angry or tired. Smoothing the forehead restores a rested, relaxed appearance.
Most patients may be candidates for endoscopic forehead lift. To perform this procedure, the surgeon places a camera on the end of a narrow tube and inserts the tube into one of four small incisions above the hairline. Then, special instruments are used to tighten tissue and hold it in place. This procedure is less invasive and results in no hair loss and much quicker healing than the standard procedure.
Your surgeon may make an incision across the top of the forehead at, or behind, the hairline to lift and remove excess skin and tighten muscles. The placement of the incision will minimize visible scarring.
Forehead lifts are often performed in conjunction with lower face and neck lifting, eyelid surgery, Botox cosmetic, and injectable fillers.
