Do you feel as though you always look angry, sad, or tired? Do your eyebrows ever feel heavy?
The eyebrow and forehead region is a tell tale way to determine age and emotion. If you feel as though your eyebrows are dropping and forehead wrinkles are prominent, a forehead lift may be the right procedure for you. Increased skin laxity causes the forehead to drop and wrinkles to form, resulting in an aged and tired appearance. After just one week following a forehead lift by Dr. Kassir, you can return to looking and feeling your best. A forehead lift restores the volume of the forehead to eradicate wrinkles, while tightening the lax skin, resulting in a younger appearance.
What is a Forehead lift?
A forehead lift, also known as a brow lift, is a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure in which small incisions are made behind the hairline, and the forehead skin is pulled upward. Because the incisions are hidden, the effects of the forhead lift are not evident. The forehead muscles and tissues are relocated upwards. This process eliminates forehead wrinkles by tightening the skin to produce a younger and rejuvenated appearance. Depending on the patient, excess fat tissue can be removed to balance the face. The eyebrows and forehead are lifted so the patient looks more youthful and happy.
A temporal brow lift is another option to produce a more rested appearance. This type of brow lift targets the lateral corners of the eyebrows. Dr. Kassir makes two longer incisions above the temples, which targets and lifts the tissue of the outer corners of the brows. Because each type of brow lift is a minimally invasive procedure, they can be done under local anesthetic. The healing process takes about 2 weeks, but patients are able to resume normal activity after about 1 week.
Surgical brow lifts have instant and permanent results. If you aren’t ready for a surgical approach, there are other ways to improve lax skin and eyebrow wrinkles through dermal fillers. Botox/Dysport fillers relax the forehead muscles so that they don’t appear to pull downwards, while also filling in fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers typically last 3-6 months and require no down time.
Dr. Kassir performs forehead lifts alone, as well as in conjunction with other procedures such as a facelift or a neck lift.
