Why Get a Forehead Lift?
As we age, wrinkle lines may appear on our forehead. Frown lines between the eyebrows could make one appear too serious or angry. If the skin relaxes on the forehead, it may cause the eyebrows to drop, which can lead to hooding of the upper eyelids and make one look tired. If your goal is to place your eyebrows in an alert position, which may cause you to look more youthful, than a forehead lift would probably be ideal for you.
A forehead lift, also known as a brow lift, is used to reduce wrinkle lines that develop horizontally across the forehead, raise sagging brows and improve frown lines (the vertical creases that appear between eyebrows). Brow lifts can be performed in different ways. Your Florida plastic surgeon can perform a brow lift through an endoscopic or coronal incision.
During your brow lift recovery, your South Florida cosmetic surgeon may tape your forehead and loosely wrap your head to minimize bruising and swelling after the procedure. The patient will also be given specific instructions by their plastic surgeons to follow during recover as well as a follow-up appointment. These instructions will include how to care for the surgical site and drains as well as medication to take orally or apply topically in order to aid the healing process.
The initial healing of the wound may take 10 to 14 days. The patient should be able to resume normal activity and return to work after 2 weeks. As the bruising and swelling subside, smoother forehead skin will be revealed, and you may see the gradual results of a more youthful and rested appearance. What are you waiting for?
