When you ask a person how they feel about their appearance, there are going to be a lot of things they like and some things they just don’t like. Some things a person can do nothing about. For example, if a person is five feet tall and they want to be six feet tall, there is nothing they can do about it.
Other issues with appearance can be addressed and fixed. For example, if a person feels frustrated because the skin on their forehead is sagging, they may want to look into getting a forehead lift.
What is a Forehead Lift?
Forehead lifts are very popular cosmetic surgical procedures that reverse the aging process. The forehead develops deep creases and wrinkles as a result of facial expressions and as a result of the effects the environment has on a person. Interestingly, a forehead lift is not solely for patients who have deep creases or deep wrinkles across their forehead as a result of age. It is also perfect for people who have inherited traits like a lowbrow or other problems that affect their forehead.
How is a Forehead Lift Performed?
A forehead lift can be performed in a number of ways; however, all of these procedures are designed to correct sagging skin in the forehead, as well as address some issues affecting the upper eyelids and the eyebrows. During the procedure, Dr. Funcik, our board-certified cosmetic surgeon, will remove pieces of skin and/or muscle that cause wrinkles or that lead to deep frowns.
Another benefit of having a forehead lift performed is that it does not just affect the wrinkles in the forehead. A forehead lift can improve the appearance of multiple areas of the face, including but not limited to around and between the eyes, the bridge between the nose and the eyebrows.
Since a forehead lift is a surgical procedure, it will require extended downtime and extended recovery time. Our cosmetic surgeon will provide you with a list of things to do that will help you have a good recovery.
