The forehead lift cosmetic surgery is designed to enhance the position of the eyebrows and make them appear more youthful. The surgery tightens the sagging skin above the upper eyelids and creates an open and bright appearance for the eyes. It can also address frown and forehead wrinkles.
The pre-operative consultation is the key to the surgery as it will provide an opportunity to the patient to understand their options and make the right choice of a surgical technique. The surgeon will evaluate the patient’s various parameters during the consultation to determine a detailed surgical plan.

All these areas can be covered during the initial consultation. Therefore, the patient should be proactively involved and cooperate with the surgeon to achieve the best possible outcomes.
Aesthetic Objectives of the Patient
The surgeon will motivate the patient to be open regarding their specific aesthetic requirements and goals, especially about the upper face. When the patient’s cosmetic objectives are met, it provides the patient the most satisfaction from the surgical procedure.
The surgeon will individualize the forehead lift procedure to build in the patient’s personal aesthetic needs for more effective outcomes. The procedure can be made less invasive when the surgeon creates a forehead lift surgery plan that targets the patient’s goals in a precise way.
Current Health Status
The patient should ideally arrange their medical records for the surgeon’s review ahead of a forehead lift surgery consultation.
This will facilitate a more useful consultation and save time. The patient should present all information pertaining to their health, including any underlying medical conditions such as auto-immune disorders, hypertension, or any specific allergies to the surgeon in a transparent manner.
The patient should create a list of all medications (prescription and non-prescription), vitamins, and herbal supplements that they currently take. The patient should frankly let the surgeon know if they smoke. The surgeon will be able to offer the correct guidelines for pre and post-op phases depending on the patient’s responses.
In case the patient has any concerns or doubts regarding the surgery, the practice, or any other facet, they should freely seek answers during the consultation. It is also advisable to make a list of all questions on paper and take it along to the consultation.
