The eyebrow and forehead area is one of the first parts of your face that may betray the passage of time. This is often where wrinkles become folds, skin begins to sag, and the face generally takes on a more wizened appearance. Even young people in the habit of using their eyebrows often may find themselves struggling to hide the creases that result from their expressive personalities. Your forehead ceases to become a reflection of your mood, and instead becomes an aesthetic burden that can interfere with your confidence and clarity of expression.
A forehead lift, or browlift, is the answer. A simple outpatient procedure can help you reclaim the smooth, supple appearance of your younger days and maintain the sort of unlined forehead that many people associate with vitality. Browlifts are safe, effective, and impressive, and the results can be significant. To see what a forehead lift can do for your face, put your hands above your brows and outside the edges of your eyes and gently raise the skin upwards.
Getting Started with a Browlift Procedure
Our process begins with a conversation about your goals. I take the time to understand precisely where you want improvement and how you would like the final result to appear. Even though this procedure is relatively straightforward, I make sure that we discuss every step of the process and what you can expect in the days and weeks following the procedure. If desired, I can also help you understand how eyelift surgery may be combined with a facelift to create a more youthful and balanced appearance overall.
The Forehead Lift Procedure
The majority of forehead lifts are performed via a minimally invasive surgical technique known as an endoscopic forehead lift, which involves tiny incisions that are hidden behind the hairline. The placement of incisions may change depending on your facial structures and the placement of creases, but I always ensure that you get the best results with the most invisible scars possible. Once the forehead is gently elevated into a more balanced position, small sutures are applied to promote speedy healing and the best possible outcome.
After Your Forehead Surgery
Some normal bruising and swelling will follow for about ten days following your browlift, so the use of cold compresses is recommended for faster healing. You may experience some numbness and itching in the days following your forehead lift as well, but this will go away over time. A wrap dressing is carefully removed the day after your procedure, and the sutures come out seven to ten days later. Patients can typically resume normal activities in about two weeks.
