Forehead lift - series

Indications

Indications

Overview

Forehead lifts are most commonly done for people in their 40s to 60s to slow the visible effects of aging.

In younger people, a forehead lift can raise congenitally low eyebrows that give the face a sad expression. In people whose brows are so low that they interfere with the upper field of vision, the forehead lift can be performed as a reconstructive procedure.

A good forehead lift candidate is someone who has one or more of these facial characteristics: sagging brows, tissue that hangs down at the outer part of the eyelids, horizontal wrinkling on the forehead, or a dysfunctional nose. Deep furrows between the eyes also can be reduced through a forehead lift.
