Facial surgery Forhead lift (Frontoplasty)

There are natural changes in the face that come with aging. Genetics plays a role in the skin’s aging; Sun exposure is also a factor. Gravity also comes into play. The result can be unsightly wrinkles and creases in the forehead. Fortunately, the field of cosmetic plastic surgery can restore a more youthful facial appearance. A forhed lift can give your face a fresh and much more relaxed appearance.

Why consider a forhead lift?

Sometimes, the fall of the upper eyelids is related to a fall in the position of the eyebrow over time. Depending on your particular concerns, either upper eyelid surgery or an eyebrow lift may be the most appropriate procedure for you. This can be discussed at the time of your inquiry.

How does it work?

One of the two possible methods will be used to perform the forhead lift. In the classic method, the doctor makes an incision along your natural hair to begin the process. This will be a long, continuous incision along the hairline that runs from the tip of the upper ear to the opposite tip. The existing skin will be lifted and the excess will be trimmed. In addition, you may need to trim the muscle below the forehead to give it a more natural appearance. Then, the doctor closes the incision with the sutures. The placement of the incision may vary if you use the brow lift procedure to achieve other goals, such as treating hair loss.

Advances in technology allow the doctor to use endoscopy to perform brow lift, a less invasive form of surgery. In this type of surgery, several small incisions will be made inside the hairline. Often, the amount of bruising and swelling is reduced, and this procedure requires less recovery time and avoids the risks of general anesthesia.

FAQ

How do I know if I need a forehead lift or an eyelid lift?

The individual results can change. Sometimes, the fall of the upper eyelids is related to a fall in the position of the eyebrow over time. Depending on your particular concerns, either upper eyelid surgery or an eyebrow lift may be the most appropriate procedure for you. This can be discussed with your surgeon at the time of your consultation.

How long do the results of a forehead lift last?

The benefits of an eyebrow lift can last for many years. Although the tissues of the face continue to age, it is likely that the new eyebrow placement will not change.

Will there be scars?

There are always scars when the skin is cut. On the scalp, hair does not grow inside a scar. If the hair is thick, it will not be seen. If the hair is thin, the scar itself is not visible, but the absence of hair on the scar may be visible. Usually, the scar can be moved again to the area where the hair is thicker so the scar is an uncommon problem.
