New York Forehead & Eyebrow Lift

It's hard to think of any facial expression that doesn't involve the forehead. Whether you're laughing, crying or just talking, your forehead is constantly moving: wrinkling, stretching, expanding and contracting. And the more your eyebrows begin to droop, the more you contract your forehead muscles to elevate them!

Unfortunately, all of this activity leaves its mark. Deep forehead winkling, descending eyebrows, as well as horizontal and vertical frown and worry lines, are a common problem -- and on that can be nicely corrected with a forehead lift. Every forehead lift also provides an eyebrow lift.

There are many surgical approaches to the forehead lift; at New York Plastic Surgery, P.C. customize the approach to suit the needs of each patient. Incisions are always positioned for maximum camouflage and can be placed in the hair — behind the hairline or right at the hairline, depending on how you wear you hair — inside a deep forehead crease, or just above the eyebrows.

In some cases, the brow alone can even be elevated during upper eyelid surgery through the same upper eyelid incision. The newest technological advance for forehead -brow lifting is the endoscopic approach, which was described earlier. In all forehead-brow procedures, the muscles that cause frown and worry lines are disrupted since these muscles serve no other function. This disruption allows results to last for many years, if not permanently.

This surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia with sedation. It takes about an hour to perform, and you will be up and around a day or two after surgery. Any pain or discomfort following surgery is easily controlled by medications we provide. Sutures are usually removed within one week — after which you may return to work. Most of our forehead lift procedures are performed at our New York plastic surgery facilities, but for your convenience, you can choose to visit our Connecticut cosmetic surgery office for your browlift consultation and after care appointments.

When the eyebrows and forehead are elevated, the tired, sad and prematurely aged look will improve remarkably — opening up and brightening the entire face.
