A brow or forehead lift can be performed as an isolated procedure for the upper face, or as an adjunctive procedure to complement total facial rejuvenation. Horizontal lines on the forehead and vertical creases between the eyebrows (frown lines) can contribute toward a tired, sad, and angry appearance. Additionally, hooding of the brow over the eye can block off parts of the eye itself. These factors contribute toward accentuating a much older appearance than your actual age. A forehead lift can revitalize the entire face and make your face appear years younger by tightening and elevating forehead skin, creating a more well-defined shape to the eyebrows, softening lines, and opening up the eyes. The end result is a more revitalized and youthful you.
Reasons for Considering
Generally, post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and recovery time. Keeping the head elevated during the initial recovery phase is also important. Patients sometimes report minor pain associated with surgery, which can usually be treated effectively with oral medication. Patients may experience some swelling and bruising of the face which can be eased by using cold compresses. While complications are rare, patients can minimize potential problems by carefully following post-operative directions given by Dr Goh.
