What Does a Forehead Lift Do?
The effects of gravity eventually take its toll on your skin, including the soft tissues of the forehead. The result of gravity’s effects is a sagging brow, which can make you look like you are constantly tired or angry.
A forehead lift, or brow lift, reverses those effects of gravity by tightening the skin and underlying structures of the forehead. The result is a more youthful contour on the forehead, as well the upper eyelids and eyebrows. For a more dramatic effect, you can ask Dr. Burns whether you can combine a forehead lift with an eyelid surgery. There are a variety of forehead lift methods, some of which use an endoscope. This allows Dr. Burns to make modifications using a series of very small incisions.
The brow in a young person is usually positioned right above the orbital rim of the eye and the tail of the eyebrow arch is higher than the medial end. As the aging process occurs, the brow often becomes flatter, assuming a more horizontal position. This sagging brow can actually inhibit a person’s facial expressions. A forehead lift addresses the upper third of the face, giving it a much more youthful, expressive look.
When Should a Forehead Lift Be Considered?
Although the aging process itself is gradual, chances are you have looked in the mirror and realized that you have deep horizontal creases across your forehead that seem to have happened overnight. Maybe your sagging, low eyebrow position is making you look sad or angry all of the time. If you have frown lines between the eyebrows or above the top of your nose, those can also make you look grumpy. Excess skin or fatty tissue can hang over your eyes, underscoring an already tired look. All of these issues might make a forehead lift your best option.
A forehead lift will reposition your low, sagging brow so it is not hanging over the upper eyelid. It will raise your eyebrows back to their youthful position, making you look more alert. Overall, your entire face will look happier and friendlier.
