A forehead lift surgery in Glendora or Los Angeles areas can rejuvenate the forehead area by gently lifting the facial tissues that have descended over time. There are several techniques (including the endoscopic forehead lift) that we can perform, depending on your unique conditions. Woodglen Aesthetics offers the forehead lift to our patients in Glendora, Arcadia and Azusa, along with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as the eyelid lift, facelift and neck lift.
Who Can Undergo a Forehead Lift?
If you are bothered by the following conditions, you may want to consider a forehead lift:
- Forehead lines
- Drooping brow
- Loose skin on upper eyelids
During a consultation at our Plastic Surgery Center of Glendora, Woodglen Aesthetics can help you determine if the forehead lift can provide a satisfactory improvement.
What Happens During a forehead Lift?
A forehead lift usually requires 1 – 2 hours to perform. Local anesthesia with sedation is a common choice, but general anesthesia may also be recommended. The incisions used will depend on our chosen technique. In the endoscopic forehead lift, several small incisions are made behind the hairline. Other techniques may involve a single incision that travels across the top of the head.
Our surgeon elevates the brow while removing and altering underlying tissues as necessary. The brow position is then fixated and the incisions are closed with clips or stitches. After your forehead lift, a soft absorbent dressing is applied. We will give you specific instructions for post-operative care, including steps for showering, applying shampoo and camouflage cosmetics. You should expect some numbness, nausea, swelling and discomfort after surgery. Medications can help you manage these effects. Many patients are back to their normal routine within 10 days. After a brow lift, you will need to limit sun exposure and rigorous activity for a several weeks.
