A youthful eyebrow frames your eyes and face in an ideal way. It creates the foundation of a strong facial structure and gives you a more vibrant appearance. Have you examined your eyes lately? Have you taken a look at your facial shape? A forehead lift is a procedure that can address these concerns.

A youthful eyebrow has fullness under the skin along the upper rim, and arcs above the rim towards the sides. But with age, the eyebrow and lid can look a bit deflated and have a hollowed appearance. Is your brow drooping? Is it lacking that feminine arch? Are “worry lines” troubling you? A forehead lift may help! Schedule a consultation by calling 303.744.2300.

What is a Forehead Lift?

At FacesFirst, an endoscopic forehead lift is one of our most popular ways to address drooping brows. This cosmetic procedure uses an endoscope to reposition or remove underlying muscle and tissue, is done using smaller incisions in the hairline. The forehead lift procedure repositions the eyebrows and relaxes the frowning muscle, creating a younger and smoother look. The advantage of this surgery is that small incisions allow you to heal very quickly with a minimal amount of discomfort.

Dr. Picerno and Dr. Cote are experts in facial cosmetic surgery and they hide incisions well in the hair, so incisions are not detectable. No hair has to be cut or shaved. After all, we want people to notice you, not the work you have had done. With over 30 years of combined experience, FacesFirst surgeons know how to provide you with natural-looking, lasting results.

Look like you, but rejuvenated.

Forehead Lift Effects

A forehead lift done at FacesFirst, at either of our Denver or Lone Tree locations, helps decrease the excessive muscle movement in the forehead as well as reposition the eyebrows into a more natural position. In some cases, laser resurfacing may be performed simultaneously, or at a later date, to help further rejuvenate the forehead tissues and remove wrinkling.

Kinds of Forehead Lifts

FacesFirst offers other variations of forehead lifting, including the coronal forehead lift, the trichophytic forehead lift, and the midforehead lift. Schedule your initial consultation and Dr. Picerno or Dr. Cote will help you to decide which technique is best for you. With years of experience, you wouldn’t want to trust your eyebrows to just anyone.

Frame your face and make your facial features stand out for all the right reasons. Call us today at 303.744.2300.
