A forehead lift, also referred to as a brow lift, can smooth out the wrinkles and furrows in the forehead, as well as corrects sagging or low positions of the eyebrows. The popularity and increased demand for cosmetic surgery procedures, including forehead lifts, have allowed great strides in a short amount of time to be made in surgical techniques.
Depending on the patient’s needs, as well as the surgeon’s preferences, the forehead lift can be performed in various ways. Commonly, the forehead lift will be performed by making an incision across the top of the scalp, beginning above the ears and hidden within the hair. Although people heal differently, within weeks the forehead lift patient will begin to see the puffiness and swelling subside, exposing a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Final forehead lift results can take months to appear, but patients often enjoy a more refreshed and attractive look. Depending on the severity of the wrinkles and skin prior to the forehead lift, the results can be pretty dramatic. As with any surgical procedure, a forehead lift has risks and should only be performed by a qualified and reputable plastic surgeons.
