As we age, the forehead can begin to droop, forming deep creases between the brows, which can lead to an angry or tired looking appearance. Dr. David M. Mosier and Dr. Steven Holzman can perform forehead lift surgery, also called brow lift, that can raise the forehead to a more youthful position and reduce heaviness in the upper eye area.
The Brow Lift Procedure
Brow lift surgery can be performed using one of two possible techniques. Depending on the case, our plastic surgeon will either complete the brow lift utilizing orthoscopic implements or traditional brow lift techniques. Orthoscopic brow lift requires only a few tiny incisions along the hairline through which specialized tools are inserted to carry out the surgical enhancements, eliminating the need for the traditional continuous incision along the hairline. In both versions of the procedure, dense muscle and connective tissue that have built up between the brows are removed to smooth and relax tight furrows. The forehead skin is also drawn upwards and excess is removed to restore youthful contours to the brow line.
Results of Forehead Lift – Refreshed and Relaxed
Our forehead lift patients often look years younger after surgery. The procedure can effectively release tension between the brows, alleviate drooping of the eyebrows and forehead skin, and dramatically reduce the appearance of both vertical and horizontal wrinkles in the region. In many cases, brow lift is performed in conjunction with other facial procedures such as eyelid surgery or facelift.
