If you have a sagging forehead or brows that hang too low and too close to your eyes, then a forehead lift can help you look more alert and youthful. You may also consider a forehead or brow lift if you have deep vertical furrows between your eyebrows (frown lines).
A forehead lift can revitalize drooping or lined foreheads appearance and restores a more youthful, refreshed look. The procedure also corrects drooped brows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a person appear angry, sad or tired. In a forehead lift, the muscles and tissues that cause the furrowing or drooping are removed or altered to smooth out the forehead, raise the eyebrows, and minimize frown lines.
Orange County Plastic Surgery typically performs a forehead lift for those patients who require both a forehead and a brow lift. This is completed through minimal incisions with or without the use of an endoscope. In younger patients who desire a more elevated position of the brow tail, Orange County Plastic Surgery performs a temporal brow lift through small incisions in the hair bearing scalp.
Forehead lift is often performed in conjunction with a face lift to provide full facial rejuvenation. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) may also be performed at the same time as a forehead lift, especially if a patient has significant skin overhang in the upper eyelids.
