Definition - What does Forehead Lift mean?
A forehead lift is a cosmetic procedure that reduces the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead, restores saggy eyebrows to their proper position and improves frown lines that form from natural aging. A forehead lift is often performed in conjunction with other procedures such as an eyelid lift or face lift. While the results of a forehead lift are considered long-lasting, they are not permanent. Individuals will likely need to undergo another forehead lift as their face naturally ages.
TheConsultation explains Forehead Lift
There are three core methods used for a forehead lift:
- Endoscopic brow lift: Several small incisions will be made around the hairline. The surgeon will then place a small camera and light will be placed just inside one of the incisions so that the doctor can examine the current condition of the muscle and tissue in the face. Another instrument is used to shift the forehead tissue upward and then close the incisions.
- Hairline brow lift: The incisions in this method are placed between the top of the forehead and the hairline. Small amounts of skin and tissue are then removed from the forehead so that the hairline does not have to be pulled back. This method is particularly successful in remedying horizontal creases that appear on the forehead.
- Coronial brow lift: The incisions are made from the top of the hairline to the top of the head. The forehead is then lifted into place and the excess scalp is removed and the incisions are sewed shut. This method is not usually intended for people who have a high hairline or may have a high hairline in the future as the scarring would be very visible.
