In a forehead lift, the skin and tissues that cause the furrowing or sagging of the forehead and the eyebrows are removed or altered to smooth the forehead, raise the eyebrows and minimize frown lines.
Most effectiv and longlasting is the conventional surgical method, in which the incision is hidden just above the hairline. In this procedure the excess skin is removed and the forehead is tightened. This results in a lifting of the eyebrows and frownlines disapear. Another option is the endoscopic lift, a viewing instrument that allows the procedure to be performed with minimal incisions. Here no skin can be eliminated, the effect is not as big as in a open approach. But there are almost no scars. The open technioc is more effectiv, but a long scar in the scalp will remain. Since the scar lays in the hair it is not visible as well.
The forehead lift is performed under local anaesthesia. After surgery you may feel some tugging and mild discomfort, your forehead will be numb, it is a light feeling of pressure but not really painful.
