Get a More Youthful Appearance with a Forehead Lift
Sagging skin is one of the most annoying detriments to an individual’s appearance. In the facial area, drooping eyelids, horizontal lines, and bulging eyebrows give the impression of advanced aging. Fortunately, a more youthful appearance can be attained with the aid of a plastic surgeon. A restorative forehead lift is often the best course of action to correct the problem of sagging facial skin.
A forehead lift is an outpatient surgical procedure that involves minimal invasive cutting. The small scars that result from the surgery heal very quickly, and within weeks of the lift procedure, no visible signs remain. For those whose skin has suffered the effects of sun, wind, and aging, renewed skin elasticity is just a single step away.
The Forehead Lift Surgical Procedure
The main difference between a high forehead lift and a cheek lift is the placement of the incision points. Typically, the surgeon makes small cuts across the center of the forehead. Most often, the widest cut is on top, with smaller horizontal incisions just above the eyes. Some patients with excessive drooping of the forehead skin are advised to undergo a coronal lift. This involves horizontal incisions at a higher level, above the front hairline.
Coronal endoscopic surgery results in less visible scars immediately after the procedure. It corrects the look of the entire forehead because excess fat and tissue is removed and the cut closed tightly with an upper pressure applied to the forehead skin.
Combined with Other Rejuvenation Techniques
It is also common to combine an eyebrow lift or eyelid tuck in combination with the forehead lift. This is to create a more natural, harmonious appearance. Because of the effects of aging and the ever-changing shape of the patient’s head through the years, a forehead lift alone may actually cause a deformed look and stretching of other areas of the epidermis. Therefore, raising the eyelids or brow area is often the best way to keep the face looking the same as it did when the patient was younger.
Are You A Candidate For A Forehead Lift?
If your forehead is filled with wide, horizontal lines that sag, cosmetic surgery to raise the level of the forehead is the most preferred treatment option. The effects are long lasting, and you will not experience undue tightening of the facial skin. In fact, your skin will look smoother and suppler after the procedure.
