Forehead Lifting Surgery

Forehead Lifting Surgery

Forehead Lifting Surgery

The forehead is a significant area of the face, and as people age, wrinkles and drooping brows may start to show. Patients over the age of 40 are typically candidates for cosmetic forehead surgery. However, a competent plastic surgeon’s evaluation of the situation is crucial.

By removing extra tissue, correcting the muscles, and tightening the skin, the forehead procedure enhances the form of the face and lifts the sagging eyebrows. With the procedure, people with inherited abnormalities like a small or wide forehead or wrinkles above the nose can achieve a stunning and uniform appearance. The conclusion of the surgery depends largely on the quality of the skin and the experience of the cosmetic surgeon. Continued results also depend on other signs of aging.

When Should a Forehead Lift Be Done?

People in their 40s and 60s frequently have this surgery to mask the signs of aging. Furthermore, it can benefit those who have inherited disorders like drooping eyebrows or wrinkles over the nose. When young, the process might increase the low eyebrows that might give the face a “sad” appearance. Additionally, the technique can be used on those with unattractive too-low brows.
Anyone can get a forehead lift if they suffer from one or more of the following conditions:
The lines between the eyes.
Frontal creases that run horizontally.
Eyebrows that have sagged.
