Would you like to look younger, smoother, less tired? Do you feel the passage of time can be seen in your face, particularly in your forehead? Since your forehead makes up the entire upper third of your face, if you’re not happy with the way it looks, you might want to consider a type of facial procedure known as a forehead lift. This is just one of the ways I can help you achieve a more beautiful face. To learn more, click here.
What causes your forehead to wrinkle?
As a major focal point for facial expression, your forehead (along with your eyes and mouth) enables you to show concern, surprise, anger, worry and many other emotions, both positive and negative. Over time, those expressions form lines and wrinkles across your forehead. In addition, aging and gravity cause the forehead muscles to weaken and the skin in that area to loosen, also resulting in lines and wrinkles.
To dramatically reduce the appearance of these unwanted signs of aging, a forehead lift is a great solution.
A forehead lift will:
- 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 the eyebrows
What happens during a forehead lift?
Unlike Botox®, a forehead lift (also known as a brow lift or browplasty) is a more permanent approach to removing wrinkles in the forehead because it’s actually a cosmetic facial surgery procedure. It corrects drooping eyebrows and eyelids that obstruct a person’s vision, and also removes deep frown lines across the forehead and between the eyes (lines that may be too deep for Botox to treat effectively).
The procedure requires several small incisions that are easily concealed underneath your hair. Cosmetic improvements are made beneath the skin and on the deep muscles of your forehead, then the skin and muscles are tightened to give you a smoother, fresher, more youthful appearance.
A forehead lift can be done alone or with other procedures such as a facelift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping.
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.
