A forehead lift or “brow lift” is a procedure, performed on an outpatient basis, that restores a more youthful, refreshed, and cheery look to the forehead, eyebrows and upper eyelid areas. By removing excess skin, the procedure corrects drooping brows, improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make you look angry, sad or tired, and tightens the skin of the upper eyelid. The incisions are well hidden along the frontal hairline or in the hair. A limited incision browlift is another alternative. This type of browlift uses a short scar and is perfect for patients needing rejuvenation along the lateral brow.
The particular type of incision to be used is dependent on your goals and desires. Also, a forehead lift is often performed in conjunction with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or a facelift to provide a smoother, overall balanced look to the eyes and face.
