5 Benefits of Getting a Forehead Lift You Shouldn’t Overlook

Unhappy,Young,Woman,Looking,In,Mirror,And,Touching,Wrinkles,Onforehead lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can significantly improve the appearance of the forehead, brows, and eyelids. It is also called a “brow lift”, although not all brow lifts address the whole forehead.

While some turn to temporary solutions like BOTOX to paralyze facial muscles, others want a longer-lasting solution to their forehead complaints. This is when the benefits of a forehead lift shine through.

1. Eliminate Noticeable Creases

A forehead lift raises the skin on the forehead and brows. This pull removes creases from the face for a smoother, more refreshed look above and between the brows.

2. Take Years Off Your Appearance

As skin loses its elasticity as you age, gravity pulls tissues down and out. The person you see in the mirror can reflect the youthfulness you feel inside with a forehead lift.

3. Restore a More Rested Look

Humans rely on facial expressions as social cues to how others are feeling. A sagging forehead can give people the impression that you’re tired, angry, bored, or disappointed. Have you been hearing “you look tired” more often? A forehead lift may be the solution you’re looking for.

4. Tighten Skin Around the Eyes

The results go beyond the forehead to reposition the brows and lift the eyes. You may not need a blepharoplasty (eye lift) because this procedure can address multiple facial areas simultaneously.

5. The Results Are Lasting

This is a same-day outpatient procedure that typically takes one to two hours. However, results can last for years and rarely require revision.

How the forehead lift can eliminate wrinkles and folds on the upper third of the face

Do you find you have significant wrinkles and folds on the forehead? Are you worried about the fine lines around your eyes that are contributing to an aged appearance? You are not alone, and the team at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg can help you determine if you are a good candidate for plastic surgery procedures such as the forehead lift.

What is the forehead lift procedure like?

Forehead lift procedures performed by Drs. William Reno III and Paul Talbot of the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg take place in an outpatient setting, meaning that you are free to go home the same day as their surgery. The procedure itself usually takes between one and two hours, during which the surgeon will make incisions in the hairline and forehead before repositioning the skin and tissues. In some cases, the surgeon may also need to use bone grafts or artificial implants to achieve the desired results. Afterward, the incisions will be closed with stitches, and you will be given a bandage to help support their healing forehead.

What can I expect during recovery after the forehead lift procedure?

The recovery process after a forehead lift is usually pretty straightforward. You will need to keep your head elevated for the first few days and nights to reduce swelling, and you will also need to apply ice packs periodically. Pain medication can help manage any discomfort, and most people feel well enough to return to work or school within a week or two. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least six weeks and only returned to after doctor approval. It is important to note that you will experience some swelling and bruising after surgery, but this should subside within a week or two. Most of our patients are able to return to their normal activities within two to three weeks.

What is the forehead lift?

Adult men and women with deep creases that reside across the forehead may find that there are different approaches that can be taken to smooth these lines and wrinkles. Many turn to neuromodulators, which are medications that can be injected into the muscles of the face to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. However, there comes a point where injectables are no longer sufficient. In situations such as this, adult patients may consider talking to a professional about plastic surgery procedures like the forehead lift. Drs. William Reno III and Paul Talbot of the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg in Hattiesburg, MS may recommend the forehead lift for patients with moderate to severe forehead folds.

What is the forehead lift?

Also known as a brow lift, the forehead lift focuses on the upper portion of the face. It can be used to address the following issues:

  • Wrinkles across the forehead
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines)
  • Drooping eyebrows
  • Drooping skin between the brows and eyes
  • Fine lines and wrinkles around the upper third of the face

What occurs during the forehead lift?

During the forehead lift, the plastic surgeon will make an incision behind the hairline to reduce the appearance of scarring. Excess skin is removed from the upper third of the face before the area is sutured back in place. Removing this excess skin will tighten and firm the forehead while bringing the eyebrows up to a more youthful position on the face. This allows men and women to look more youthful while smoothing problem areas.

Can the procedure be completed with another?

Some patients have the forehead lift performed alone, while others might combine this treatment with other facial procedures such as eyelid surgery or a facelift. Speaking with the doctor before scheduling an appointment for surgery is the best way to find out if you can rejuvenate other areas of the face by combining services.
