Sagging of the forehead skin is noticeable in the form of horizontal crease lines. This skin drooping can also affect the balanced look of your eyebrows. Correcting this problem involves a procedure known as a brow lift or forehead lift.
Before you consider having a brow lift performed, you’ll want to schedule a consultation with us. Our surgeon will examine your forehead closely and let you know if the look you wish to achieve can be realized through cosmetic surgery. In some cases, a brow lift may not be the ideal treatment. Some individuals have problems with the condition of the skin itself. The forehead skin may be brittle because of a lack of moisture retention. Only after a consultation can we determine whether a forehead lift is right for you.
What a Brow Lift Does
A brow lift is performed much the same way as a facelift or neck lift. The skin is pulled upward so that it is smoother than before. A lift procedure doesn’t treat skin conditions, nor does it change the complexion of the skin.
Most individuals who choose to have a brow lift performed are experiencing an excess of fatty tissue beneath the skin. The folds and creases can cause sagging that affects the position and balance of the eyebrows.
Before and During the Surgery
Because anesthetics are used, you will need to have someone accompany you to the office or clinic. You won’t be able to drive home afterwards. We will give you advice on how to care for your forehead skin in the days leading up to the surgery.
During a typical brow lift, the skin is pulled up and away from the subdermal tissues. Excess fat is removed or repositioned. The skin is then pulled upward and draped back into place. If only a small portion of the forehead needs smoothing, we may perform an endoscopic lift. It all depends on the unique case.
Recovery From Surgery
A brow lift is a surgical procedure, and post-surgery home care is relatively simple. Most of our clients recover fully from the surgery sooner than they would have thought.
If your forehead is making you look older, tired, or stern, you might want to consider smoothing the forehead skin. A brow lift performed by Dr. Usal could drastically improve your overall appearance. Contact us today to schedule a consultation at one of our offices in Paramus or Istanbul.
