With age, the skin of the face slowly loses elasticity, causing wrinkles and a mildly drooping brow. The accompanying creases and lines can present a sad, old or tired appearance. Other factors can help intensify those negative effects, including sun exposure, weight fluctuations and heredity. With a forehead lift, these problems may be resolved by surgically altering the muscles and tissues that cause wrinkling and/or drooping in the area above the eyes. For patients over 40, an endoscopic forehead lift is most commonly used to minimize the appearance of aging. People of any age who have developed furrows or frown lines due to stress or muscle activity may also benefit. During the procedure, the surgeon elevates the skin and underlying tissues of the upper face, and may then remove part of the muscle between the brows that causes frown lines. The result of an endoscopic forehead lift is a more youthful, relaxed, and refreshed appearance.Request a Consultation
