The forehead region, along with the eyelids and lower portions of the face, can experience skin wrinkling and a loss of tone as we age. In addition to worsening the issue of extra skin on the top eyelids, this might cause the brows to sag, giving one a fatigued or depressed appearance.
A brow lift, also known as forehead lift, also lessens wrinkle lines that appear between the eyes, across the bridge of the nose, and horizontally across the forehead. In addition to positioning the eyebrows in an alert and young position, it improves frown lines, the vertical wrinkles that form between the eyebrow, and drooping brows that hood the upper eyelids.
General anesthesia, local anesthesia, and sedation are used to accomplish this procedure. Incisions are made behind the hairline, above the ear, and over the top of the head. Incisions may occasionally be made forward of the hairline. Deep muscles and the skin's surface are improved; the skin and the muscle are then tightened to provide a younger-looking appearance.
The endoscopic forehead lift is a further development which replaces the typical forehead lift's larger incision with a series of extremely tiny ones at or near the hairline. The plastic surgeon can alter the muscles that generate frown lines and, if necessary, lift the brows using an endoscope. The forehead lift can be combined with other facial rejuvenation treatments.
After the surgery, there can be swelling and bruising that may involve the eyelids and lower portions of the face as well. There will also be some numbness in the portions of the scalp, which can take a while to recover.
Soon after the procedure, you will be able to wash your hair. One week following the procedure, the sutures will be taken out.
