Orange County plastic surgeon describes the forehead lift procedure

Patients in the Orange County area who have been using Botox for forehead wrinkles and folds may find over time that the signs of aging become too severe for Botox to correct. While Botox injections are perfect for men and women with mild to moderate signs of aging, it may be not be appropriate for significant cases of skin laxity and folds on the upper portion of the head. Because of this, Dr. Thuan Nguyen of The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery offers procedures such as the forehead lift for individuals ready to address severe facial wrinkles on the upper third of their face.

The forehead lift is a surgical cosmetic procedure that is done to help rejuvenate the face and give patients the opportunity to turn back the hands of time and improve skin laxity. It can be done in conjunction with other facial surgeries but even when it is done on its own, it can greatly improve the way one looks.

Dr. Thuan Nguyen is a plastic surgeon who consults with his patients before providing them with the surgical procedures necessary to help reduce the signs of aging. Patients can discuss how the procedure is done so there are no surprises and they know exactly what they can expect in regards to the results achieved.

A forehead lift is an outpatient procedure. It is done under general anesthesia administered and monitored by our board-certified anesthesiologist. Patients will have one of two types of forehead lifts done, depending on the severity of their sagging and their desired results. The traditional lift uses incisions past the hairline to reposition the eyebrows and remove excess skin. The incision is sutured with stitches. The alternative is the endoscopic brow lift, which is less invasive. It typically uses three very small incisions to tighten and reposition the tissues underneath. It is considered less invasive because it does not remove excess skin, so this is more appropriate for patients with less severe skin laxity and sagging.

Patients who are interested in achieving a more beautiful appearance are welcome to contact the practice of Dr. Thuan Nguyen and schedule a consultation appointment to find out if a forehead lift is appropriate for their specific needs and desires. Our team is here to help patients achieve a more attractive look to improve their self-confidence and quality of life.
