What is a forehead lift?
As middle age approaches, age related changes begin to appear in the brow and forehead. Repeated movement of facial muscles causes furrows to develop between the brows and horizontal lines to form on the forehead. Additionally, the long-term effects of gravity manifest as drooping eyebrows and a heavy, tired, or angry appearance around the eyes.
Botox® is an excellent treatment for the horizontal forehead and vertical frown lines. A more permanent solution to address both the lines as well as the drooping brow is a forehead lift (also called a brow lift). A forehead lift can restore the brows to a more youthful position, decrease excess upper lid skin slightly, and soften frown lines.
How is a forehead lift performed?
Drs. Thompson, Henstrom, and Manning perform forehead lift surgery in the operating room under a general anesthetic. The incisions are hidden in the hairline. This procedure is often combined with a temporal lift or midface lift, as the same incisions are used for all of these procedures. In addition, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is often performed with a forehead lift. The brow is restored to a more youthful position and the frowning muscles are weakened.

Reasons For Browlift or Forehead lift surgery
Aging or natural genetics can cause the brows to move downward over time. Skin and soft tissue lose strength and ability to snap back after muscles stretch over time with natural facial movement. This causes the brow to come down into the eyelid area, causing distance to shorten between the brows and eyelashes.
The lower position of the eyebrows can make one look tired, sad, or angry. You may consider a brow lift if you have a low brow line or sagging eyebrows that also contribute to heavy eyelids.
