A forehead lift smooths the forehead and minimizes frown lines by removing or altering muscles that can give the face an old, tired look, while an eyebrow lift elevates the eyebrows back to a more youthful position to remove a common sign of aging from the face. This minimally invasive surgery is often done at the same time as eyelid surgery to give a more youthful look.
To perform this procedure, Dr. Eko of Eko Plastic Surgery uses minimally invasive, state-of-the-art techniques for a natural-looking, scarless result. Usually performed on an outpatient basis, this endoscopic procedure seldom has complications in the hands of an expert. Patients may experience hair loss along the scar edges and loss of sensation below the incision line; more serious complications that require open surgery occur in less than 1% of all forehead lift/eyebrow lift procedures.
The procedure requires a recovery period of up to 10 days, with up to three weeks of avoiding strenuous activity, but the results are long-lasting if you live a healthy lifestyle and avoid sun damage. You should start to see the full effects of your surgery within a few months.
