There are a number of things that happen to our face as we age that give others an indication about how old we are. As an example, the older we get, the less facial volume we have. We start to develop wrinkles on our forehead and across our eyes. Over time, our eyebrows take on a position that make us look older. A forehead lift can go a long way in rejuvenating your appearance and making you look as young on the outside as you feel on the inside.
Reasons Why You Should Consider a Forehead Lift
The primary reason why you may consider a forehead lift is if you feel that your forehead is what is causing you to look prematurely older. You may notice that you have deeper forehead creases or that your forehead is causing eyelid hooding. If so, a forehead lift can help you. During this procedure, excess tissue is removed from your forehead area. Your skin is tightened with the goal of minimizing frown lines.
Basic Information about the Surgery
You can expect your forehead lift surgery to take somewhere between one and two hours, depending on the exact work that’s being done and the technique that is going to be used. If you are just going in for a brow lift and you are not adding on a facelift, you are usually able to go home the same day.
During the surgery our surgeon is able to reposition, alter, or remove skin and tissue as needed. This allows them to correct any visible creases and furrows in your forehead. With the goal of keeping you as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure, a brow lift is usually performed using general anesthesia. It is recommended that you stop using tobacco products six weeks before your surgery and six weeks after the surgery.
