What can Forehead Lift Do?

Forehead lift surgery can help to eliminate droopiness from the forehead skin and frown lines between the brows to create a refreshed appearance.

The cosmetic surgery procedure is relatively simple and can effectively remove signs of aging from the upper face, which also additionally tend to make patients look angry or tired, irrespective of how they actually feel. A youthful and energetic look overall, complete with raised eyelids and fading of lines on the forehead can be achieved with this surgery.

Stellar Candidates

People in the age group of 40 to 50, with wrinkles forming along the forehead and drooping eyelids usually choose forehead lift surgery. There are certain instances in which even people in their 20s and 30s may need a forehead lift because of the problems caused by hereditary factors.

Steps in a Traditional Forehead Lift

  • General anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation is administered to ensure that the patient remains comfortable and asleep during the surgery.
  • Just below the hairline an incision is made across the forehead.
  • The brows are repositioned by lifting the skin and smoothening out the wrinkles.
  • The next step involves removal of any excess skin.
  • The surgeon finally closes the incisions with sutures.

Steps in an Endoscopic Forehead Lift

  • General anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation is administered to ensure that the patient remains comfortable and asleep during the surgery.
  • Along the scalp several small incisions are made.
  • The surgeon is able to see the treatment area on a screen through an endoscope which is inserted through the incisions.
  • The forehead tissue is lifted and repositioned, along with the elimination of muscle tissue which is causing the horizontal aging lines.
  • Incisions are sutured after the removal of any excess skin.

Recovery

While sutures may be removed in a week or 10 days, bandages are removed after two days. Recovery time would vary between patients, but it usually takes a week to resume normal activities. Once the recovery is completed, the results will show a smoother and youthful looking forehead.

The patient will be informed about the aftercare instructions to be followed during the recovery period. They should apply icepacks to minimize swelling.
