If you happen to have a droopy forehead, and you’d like to change it, then a forehead lift may be the solution. A forehead lift (click here) or brow lift is generally done to correct sagging forehead skin,and remove creases and lines. The procedure firms the skin, making the upper portion of the face look more youthful
Over time, facial features tend to descend and undergo changes, and the forehead is not exempt. As the years advance, the forehead skin becomes slack. This loss of elasticity often results in the formation of frown lines and wrinkles. Since the skin moves downward, the sagginess is often most acute in the lowest region of the forehead, which happens to be the eyebrow area.
About a Forehead lift
A forehead lift can correct many of the signs of aging that often occur on the upper half of the face. This includes forehead furrows and frown lines, as well as hooding of the upper eyelids, and droopy eyebrows. After surgery patients also notice a marked improvement in the wrinkles between the eyes, as well as those on the forehead.
Types of Forehead lift
- Endoscopic Forehead Lift is performed using a medical device known as an endoscope. The procedure effectively tightens the skin, and also adjusts the underlying layer of the skin, to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and frown lines. Depending on the scope of surgery, the procedure can be done under local or general anesthesia.
- In a Coronal Forehead Lift, an incision is made at the top of the head, stretching from one ear to the other. After this the tissue is elevated, and any excess removed.
Having a forehead lift is a great way to rejuvenate the upper third of the face. It sufficiently elevates these facial features for a younger, revitalized appearance.
