Forehead Lift Surgery Before and After Photos

For patients desiring maximal improvement in the eyelid / brow area, Dr. Bresnick can perform both eyelid lifting and forehead / brow lifting together, to rejuvenate the entire upper face. In this procedure, the forehead is tightened, wrinkles are improved, the brows are elevated, and the upper eyelids are restored to a more youthful, attractive appearance.

A forehead lift, also known as browlift, is a cosmetic procedure which treats aging of the forehead and brow area. The procedure can help correct sagging or low position of the eyebrows, deep horizontal creases in the forehead, and frown lines between the eyebrows. Most patients find that the forehead lift improves the appearance of their upper eyelids as well. Dr. Bresnick’s unique methods and expertise for your forehead and brow will help your upper face appear more yourthful and rested, while maintaining a natural look.

At your consultation, Dr. Bresnick will review the forehead lift procedure, discuss the various options available, and devise a customized plan for forehead lifting and brow improvement. Patients are encouraged to bring to the consultation pictures of themselves from ten or more years ago so that the doctor can plan the forehead lift to restore your natural appearance in youth.

Types of Forehead Lifts or Browlifts

Dr. Bresnick offers three different techniques to correct the forehead area. He will help you select which technique will work best for you. The three techniques are:

1. Endoscopic Forehead Lift or Browlift: In this state of the art procedure, several small incisions in the scalp are used to elevate the forehead and brow area. A special camera and fiberoptic scope are used in this minimal-incision technique. This technique offers the smallest incisions and a nice correction of forehead and brow aging.

2. Classic Forehead Lift or Browlift: In this excellent procedure, the forehead lift is accomplished through an incision nicely concealed within the hair of the scalp. Through this incision, excess skin is removed, the brows are elevated, and the overactive frowning muscles are treated. The brows are lifted to a more pleasing, youthful level. This procedure gives dramatic improvement of brow position and forehead contour.

3. Forehead Lift or Browlift for the High Hairline: For patients with low brows and forehead aging with a high hairline, Dr. Bresnick offers a procedure which can keep the hairline in its current position or actually lower the hairline a bit. This procedure allows patients with thin hair or receded hairlines to benefit from a forehead lift.

What to Expect

The forehead lift procedure is performed in Dr. Bresnick’s fully accredited surgical center, Encino Surgicenter. Following the procedure, patients will relax in the recovery room for a short period of time. About an hour or so after surgery, a patient is permitted to go home. There is little discomfort after a forehead lift, and no nursing care is required. The day after surgery, Dr. Bresnick will change your dressing and several days later you may wash your hair and apply your normal makeup if you desire. There is little bruising after a forehead lift, but some swelling in the upper eyelid area is expected. Sunglasses nicely hide eyelid swelling. Most patients are able to return to work after a week, although many patients are able to work from home a few days after surgery.

Additional Procedures

Many patients who desire improvement of the forehead and brow area have the forehead lift performed at the same time as facelift surgery and other procedures. The advantage of combined procedures is that only one recovery time is needed and a more harmonious, youthful facial appearance can be achieved. Common procedures done at the same time as a browlift are:

Eyelid lift (blepharoplasty): This procedure makes the eyes appear more alert and youthful with removal of fatty bags and excess skin.

Facelift: This procedure restores youthful neck contour, an attractive jawline area, and more youthful cheeks.

Lip augmentation: This procedure restores the fuller lips of youth and improves vertical lines around the mouth.

Laser resurfacing or dermabrasion These procedures improve fine wrinkles around the eyelids, crows feet areas, mouth, and chin.
