Forehead lift is a procedure that addresses the heavy drooping brow in select patients. If the eyebrows sit below the eye socket bones, a forehead lift can elevate them be removing excess skin within the scalp, at the hairline, within forehead creases, or at the eyebrow upper margin.
It is important to evaluate this area carefully. A forehead lift is much less common than a eyelid lift (blepharoplasty). In most patients, elevating the forehead to address excess upper eyelid skin causes the “surprised look”. There issue is often the excess skin below the eyebrow. A eyelid lift addresses this skin by directly removing the excess upper eyelid skin without elevating the eyebrows.
Dr. Severinac will guide you through this distinction by evaluating your face and giving you a first hand look of the results you may encounter. This procedure can be performed in the office operators with local anesthesia and oral sedation.
