A forehead lift, or browlift, restores a more youthful, revitalized appearance to the area above the eyes. The procedure corrects drooping of the eyebrows and improves forehead lines and wrinkles to help you look less tired, sad, or angry. In a forehead lift, the muscles and tissues that cause the wrinkles or drooping are removed or repositioned in order to smooth the forehead, elevate the eyebrows, and diminish frown lines.
There are several techniques available for performing a forehead lift. Which technique is most appropriate depends on how far the brows have fallen, your hair growth, and your forehead shape. In a minimally invasive, or endoscopic, browlift, small incisions are made in the hairline just above the ears. The skin is lifted and repositioned, and the muscles are then tightened. These surgeries can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia.
The forehead lift is typically associated with a very quick recovery and a natural, rested appearance after surgery
