Forehead Lift (Brow Lift)
A forehead lift is a cosmetic procedure performed for the purpose of elevating the eyebrows and correcting wrinkles in the forehead area. The procedure is usually performed on women between the ages of 35 and 65. A forehead lift procedure will achieve a more youthful balance of the eyes, forehead and upper face. The eye area is “opened” by elevating the eyebrow. The aging of the upper third of the face is reversed by reducing frown lines, hooding over the eyes and forehead creases. A forehead lift is sometimes done in conjunction with an upper and/or lower eyelid blepharoplasty (a procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the upper and/or lower eyes) or a facelift (rhytidectomy).
Bruising and swelling from this procedure is generally limited and stitches are removed within 7 days of surgery. This procedure can also be done endoscopically.
