What is a forehead lift? 

The forehead lift procedure is a specialized method of treatment that allows patient to reduce wrinkles on the upper portion of the face while also restoring the position of the brows in a higher, more youthful position. When done by a skilled and experienced provider, patients will often find that they appear more well-rested and younger than they really are! 

What are the primary benefits of the forehead lift? 

Drs. William Reno III and Paul Talbot of the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg find that many patients are able to achieve the results they desire in relation to the third portion of the face. Below are the main benefits that this procedure can provide: 

  • Reduce sagging skin around the brows and forehead
  • Correct deep lines no longer responding to nonsurgical approaches such as Botox injections
  • Minimize dynamic lines and wrinkles caused by muscle contractions
  • Raise and reposition the brows and the brow ridge
  • Achieve a more natural and youthful arch to the brows
  • Minimize the appearance of crow’s feet
  • Removal of excess skin on the forehead
  • Eliminates the look of a furrowed brow that can cause a patient to look mad or tired

When should I get a forehead lift? 

Plastic surgery often isn’t the first step towards a more youthful appearance. Patients with mild to moderate forehead wrinkles and folds may instead consider minimally invasive options first, such as dermal fillers and Botox injections. Many of these can achieve results without the need for surgery. However, once these options no longer provide desirable results, patients may want to speak to a professional about surgical options.
