Comprising the entire upper third of your face, your forehead is a very important part of the “you” that you present to the world. If you’re not happy with the way your forehead looks, now might be a good time to consider forehead surgery for a younger-looking, more beautiful, more confident you.
Your forehead is also a major focal point for expression on your face. It helps you show concern, surprise, curiosity, worry and many other emotions. Over time, those expressions etch lines and wrinkles across your forehead. In addition, aging and gravity cause the forehead muscles to weaken and the skin to loosen, also resulting in lines and wrinkles.
Although forehead wrinkles are a natural part of getting older, if you want to reduce—or eliminate—their appearance, I recommend a type of facial plastic surgery known as a forehead lift. There are many ways I can help you achieve a more beautiful face. To learn more, click here.
What is a forehead lift?
A forehead lift is a surgical procedure to correct sagging of the forehead skin, eyebrows and upper eyelids. It can also improve the look of lines and wrinkles in the forehead and between the eyes. This surgery may be done alone or with other procedures such as a facelift, eyelid surgery or nose reshaping.
A forehead lift will:
- remove or change the muscles and skin that cause signs of aging
- correct or improve facial wrinkles
- correct sagging eyebrows
- correct drooping or "hooding" eyelids, forehead furrows and frown lines
- help smooth forehead horizontal expression lines
- help flatten vertical frown lines between your eyebrows
What happens during a forehead lift
Unlike Botox®, a forehead lift is a more permanent approach to removing wrinkles in the forehead. The forehead lift (also known as a brow lift or browplasty) is a cosmetic surgery procedure which elevates drooping eyebrows and eyelids that obstruct vision and removes deep frown lines that run across the forehead (lines that may be too deep for Botox® to effectively treat).
This procedure requires several small incisions that are easily concealed within your hair. Cosmetic improvements are made beneath the skin and on the deep muscles of your forehead, then the skin and muscle are tightened to give you a fresher, more youthful appearance.
How much does forehead surgery cost?
Because the texture and appearance of every person’s facial skin is unique and the results they are seeking from forehead surgery are specific to them, the exact cost of this facial rejuvenation treatment is determined after I have met with the patient and together, we have decided what type of procedure will achieve the best possible results.
