Look Years Younger with a Forehead or Brow Lift
- Posted on: Feb 15 2018
Crow’s feet, vertical lines between the eyebrows, and heavy horizontal wrinkles on the forehead can give you an aged and even tired and angry appearance. A brow or forehead lift can elevate the brow and raise the forehead, leaving a more smooth and relaxed appearance. The latest achievements in endoscopic surgery have enabled doctors to enhance the forehead lifting surgery to diminish the appearance of scarring and tissue disruption.
It is common to combine a forehead or brow lift with another cosmetic procedure like blepharoplasty to create an overall revitalized look. If your goal is simply to elevate the brow to provide better vision, a brow lift may be all you need. During a brow lift, the contour of the brow can be changed by adjusting the amount of skin removed.
Are you a good candidate?
Are friends and family consistently asking you if you are tired or angry? This could mean that your forehead and brows are sagging to the extent that your appearance constantly gives off the vibe that you are displeased and annoyed. As we age and the muscles of our brows and forehead relax, a forehead/brow lift is an excellent way to reverse the effect. It is important to know that dermal fillers and Botox can also create the effect of a temporary brow lift. But if you want permanent results, surgery is necessary.
How do I prepare for a forehead/brow lift?
There is no special preparation required specifically for a forehead/brow lift, but there are precautions you can take. As with any surgery, it is important to avoid taking anti-inflammatory drugs or aspirin two weeks prior to your procedure. This will help diminish bruising post surgery. You will also need to stop smoking. Make sure you schedule with a friend to have them take you home after your procedure.
