The Forehead Lift resets the upper third of the facial soft tissue to the ideal position, thus eliminating the tired, sad or angry look.WHAT IS A FOREHEAD LIFT?
As a person ages, inevitably the soft tissue on the face descends. When the upper third of the face descends, the brows drop as well, producing a tired, sad or even angry look, even if the person is well rested and feels great. In some patients there are also deep horizontal furrow that gives an “old” and serious look. The Forehead Lift corrects this drooping, reversing the appearance of age.PROCEDURE
The Forehead Lift resets the upper third of the facial soft tissue to the ideal position, thus eliminating the tired, sad or angry look. It also smoothes the horizontal forehead furrows, resulting in a more relaxed and youthful look. Three small incisions are made on the scalp behind the hairline in order to raise the forehead soft tissue from the inside (endoscopically). Several anchor screws are placed temporarily and will be removed between day 4-7. The scars are strategically placed behind the hairlines so they are basically unobservable.
The forehead lift procedure takes 3 hours to complete.RECOVERY
The anchor screws will be removed between day 4-7 postoperatively. Bruising will take 5-10 days to dissipate. Most of the swelling will take about 2 weeks to settle, although the residual swelling will take 2-3 months to settle. By about one-month time, the scar and the swelling will be quite inconspicuous. However, patients should be aware that some persistent numbness of the forehead can last for months.BENEFITS
By resetting the forehead soft tissue, endoscopic forehead lift produces a more relaxed and youthful look with minimal scars.
The endoscopic brow lift procedure has two important advantages over other brow lift procedures: firstly, the surgical incisions are made behind the hairline so the scars are well-hidden in most cases. Secondly, forehead numbness is less and lasts a shorter time.NEXT STEPS
