Forehead Lift in San Diego
One of the most overlooked features on any face is the forehead and the area above the eyebrows.
This part of the body often displays the natural effects of aging as starkly as any other, and for many people this represents a real and daily challenge to their self worth. Fortunately, the world of cosmetic surgery now has an answer to this centuries-old problem.
This answer is a surgical procedure known as a forehead lift. Below you’ll find information regarding what a forehead lift is intended to correct, how these procedures are done and finally how you should proceed if you’d like to learn more about the benefits such an approach could provide for you from a San Diego forehead lift professional.
The Forehead Lift – What Does it Accomplish?
The forehead lift is intended to help those who suffer from either the effects of natural aging or even unfortunate genes in regards to an unshapely forehead. Foreheads can begin to droop over time and lead to the permanent appearance of ‘frown lines’ across the top or middle of the forehead.
In addition, aging and natural genetics can lead to a forehead dropping over the top of the eyes too far such that the person’s eyes seem sunken too far into their skull. This effect is generally the work of skin that grows loose and muscle development that leads to a permanent situation. These muscle contraction results can be spawned by constant stress and other daily difficulties.
How is a Forehead Lift Performed?
There are many different ways in which a forehead lift can be performed. The ‘traditional’ manner includes making incisions either at the hair line or even near the eye lids in order to remove the loose skin and tissue and to deal with the muscle tissue that’s in place that leads to the current undesirable look.
However, recent innovations with cosmetic surgery techniques in particular allow some patients to undergo an endoscopic procedure, whereby a small camera and small incision are made into the area that’s to be repaired such that the same process plays out without the invasiveness of the more traditional approach.
Overall, there are many different ways in which you could obtain the vast number of benefits from this procedure. If you’d like to learn more about whether you’re a good candidate for a forehead lift, what you can expect in terms of the specific benefits and the recovery period from such a procedure (depending on the technique used to complete it) or anything else, please feel free to contact a San Diego forehead lift specialist at the Sadrian Plastic Surgery Center today to schedule an initial consultation.
