A traditional or mini facelift addresses aging in the mid to lower areas of the face. However, many individuals are troubled by upper facial aging, specifically in the forehead region. A forehead lift, also known as a brow lift, is a surgical procedure that tightens tissues and corrects sagging in this area. The incision is generally camouflaged in the hairline. This procedure may be performed alone, or in conjunction with procedures such as a facelift and eyelid surgery, for full facial rejuvenation.
This outpatient procedure is performed under general anesthesia, administered by an experienced, board-certified anesthesiologist. There are two methods of performing a forehead lift, depending on the extent of sagging, and your desired result.
The traditional forehead lift involves an incision located beyond the hairline. Your surgeon works through this incision to reposition your eyebrows, and tighten the muscles in the area. Excess skin is then removed, and the incision is sutured.
The endoscopic brow lift is a minimally invasive procedure. Several (usually three to five) very short incisions are created. The surgeon uses specialized tools and a camera-guided technique to reach through these incisions, and tighten and reposition tissues as needed. This technique does not remove excess skin; therefore, it is appropriate when there is a lesser degree of sagging.
Patients are generally very pleased with their rejuvenated, youthful appearances. Others are not likely to notice that you've had cosmetic surgery; however, they are likely to comment on how fresh, youthful, rested, happy, and healthy you appear. It is important to understand that the natural aging process will continue, but you will be starting from a more youthful appearance. You will be able to enjoy your young, attractive appearance for many, many years.
