Benefits of a Forehead Lift

Benefits of a Forehead Lift

When it comes to making expressions, your whole face matters. However, certain parts of your face contribute more to expressing certain emotions like surprise, curiosity, and concern. When it comes to these expressions, your forehead and eyebrows convey subtlety and intensity and also contribute to the appearance of aging early on in life.

If you’re looking at pictures or in the mirror and realizing your forehead or brows are sagging and wrinkling, making you look older and more angry than you actually are, it could be time for a brow lift, also known as a forehead lift.

What is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift or forehead lift is a targeted plastic surgery procedure that focuses on elevating the skin and tissue of the eyebrows and forehead. It’s frequently combined with a facelift or other facial rejuvenation procedures (surgical and non-surgical) and can help take years off your appearance, or at least help you look more alert and correct a generally furrowed brow.

Benefits of Forehead Lift Surgery

With our endoscopic forehead lift procedure, we reposition skin of the forehead to help the eyebrows rest in a more naturally high position, creating a more youthful appearance for patients. The benefits our patients see after a brow lift, with or without additional procedures, include:

  • Reduction in an “angry-looking” resting facial expression
  • More youthful eyebrow arcs
  • Reduction of excessive forehead muscle movements and wrinkles

Brow lift surgery on its own requires minimal downtime; most patients spend only a few days off of sedentary work (especially work from home), and can return to more strenuous activities in  two weeks.

The Brow Lift Procedure

When performed by itself, as opposed to in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation surgeries, a brow lift begins with the administration of anesthesia, followed by the hairline incisions that Dr. Cote or Dr. Picerno will conceal surreptitiously so as never to be noticed by others. They will then use an endoscope to access the tissue beneath your forehead and eyebrows to remove and re-structure the underlying anatomy to lift the brows in a consistent and minimally invasive way.

With our technique, we’re able to minimize scarring to parts of the hairline that will be very easily concealable following the procedure, depending on your unique surgical plan for facial rejuvenation.

At the end of the day, our board-certified surgeons want to make you look like you, but revitalized. We want others to focus on you and your expressions, not the work done for you.
