A forehead lift or browlift is a procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes. The procedure corrects drooping brows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a person appear angry, sad or tired.
What is a Forehead Lift?
In a forehead lift, the muscles and tissues that cause the furrowing or drooping are removed or altered to smooth the forehead, raise the eyebrows and minimize frown lines. Dr. Lacerna may use the conventional surgical method, in which the incision is hidden just behind the hairline; or it may be performed with the use of an endoscope, a viewing instrument that allows the procedure to be performed with minimal incisions. Both techniques yield similar results – smoother forehead skin and a more animated appearance. If you’re considering a forehead lift, this page will provide a basic understanding of the procedure – when it can help, how it’s performed and what results you can expect. But it won’t answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on your individual circumstances. Be sure to ask Dr. Lacerna if there is anything you don’t understand about the procedure.
