FOREHEAD LIFT CANDIDATES
A forehead lift is appropriate for the treatment of certain inherited traits. Younger adults who have a low brow or who already have deep frown lines due to stress or overactivity of muscles may benefit from this procedure. The tired, worried, or angry expression is often caused by low eyebrow position and deep forehead furrows are eliminated by a forehead lift.
Any one or combination of the following conditions may indicate that you are a good candidate for a forehead lift:
- Sagging or low position of the eyebrows, creating a tired or sad appearance
- Deep horizontal creases across the forehead
- Frown lines, or furrows, between the eyebrows and across the top of the nose
A forehead lift may also be performed at the same time as a facelift which removes excess skin and tightens muscles in the mid and lower face. If there is a significant skin overhang in the upper eyelids or puffy bags beneath your eyes, eyelid surgery may be recommended in addition to a forehead lift.
Patients for Life
“I was not happy with the way I had aged. There were no cons, only great results!! Dr Lopes is an artist. The staff was wonderful. I had no reservations because I knew I had chosen the best plastic surgeon. I had a neck and brow lift and I am so happy with the results. Don’t hesitate; make an appointment now and you will be amazed what any plastic surgery you choose does for your self esteem.”
Post-operative Procedures & Recovery
It is important to realize that the amount of time it takes for recovery varies greatly. Initially, you may experience some mild discomfort that can be controlled with medication. You will notice some temporary puffiness and discoloration that may involve the eyelid and cheek areas as well. Typically, swelling and bruising will be almost totally resolved within a couple of weeks.
FOREHEAD LIFT RESULTS
Since the healing process is gradual, you should expect to wait at least several weeks to get an accurate picture of how you look.How long the results of your forehead lift will last depends on many variables including your heredity and lifestyle factors. Some patients find that they want to make additional improvements at a later time. Even though the aging process continues, patients are usually happy with their appearance for many years following a forehead lift.
