If you have been frustrated with the wrinkles on your forehead, you are not alone. Over time, the brows tend to shift downward as the soft tissues gradually lose elasticity and shorten the space between your eyebrows and eyelashes. The result? As the facial muscles and connective tissue controlling your facial expressions are affected, you can start to look like you are perpetually angry, tired, or sad.
Forehead Lift (Browplasty)
When this happens, many people choose to have a forehead lift (or browplasty) done. This outpatient cosmetic treatment has helped patients restore their youthful facial appearance and can be done alone or with other facial treatments, like eyelid surgery. Whether you opt for a standalone treatment or a combination, you can enjoy increased self-confidence with our youth-restoring options.
By having the soft tissue and skin on your forehead/brow area raised, you can look younger, more vibrant and even happier. Tightening loose or sagging skin not only makes you look more appealing again but also has the potential to boost your self-image.
Restoring a smoother, more youthful-looking brow line and forehead can yield beautiful results using dermal filler injections containing hyaluronic acid or BOTOX®. While the results are temporary, it may be all that you need and want for now. If you are seeking more long-term solutions, the forehead lift is your best choice.
This treatment can be done in one visit to our office on an outpatient basis. You will be made comfortable during treatment, whether by a local anesthetic or by sedation. Depending on the condition of your skin and needs, there are several incision options our doctor may choose to perform:
-Endoscopic forehead lift: Tiny incisions are made in the hairline of your scalp and are often chosen for those seeking a less dramatic effect.
-Coronal forehead lift: This involves a longer incision made right at the hairline. This option pulls back and tightens more forehead skin and has the effect of making one look more “alert”.
-Mid-forehead: This option requires tiny incisions right above your eyebrows following the natural forehead crease.
For those seeking to fix sloping skin on the forehead, our doctor can also place a forehead implant to add volume to the area, giving you a prominent forehead and brow line.
