Forehead lift (also known as brow lift) surgery is performed to give both men and women a younger, softer looking appearance. It decreases the frown lines that many people have on the forehead caused by tiredness, genetics or stress.
A forehead lift is often performed in combination with facial rejuvenation and you should speak to Dr. Viral Desai about all options available to you. Men and women of all ages can choose to have this kind of surgery.
Any one or combination of the following conditions may indicate that you are a good candidate for a forehead lift:
1. Sagging or low position of the eyebrows, creating a tired or sad appearance
2. Deep horizontal creases across the forehead
3. Frown lines, or furrows, between the eyebrows and sometimes across the top of the nose
Remember, with any facial surgery, you may feel and look better in a short period of time.
However, it may not be advisable to participate in certain activities, especially activities that may result in the face being jarred or bumped, for several weeks.
During your consultation, Dr. Viral Desai will ask you about the results you will expect from the surgery. He will inform you of the risks and complications as well as the benefits and whether or not your expectations are realistic.
