A forehead lift corrects sagging in the skin of the forehead, upper eyelids, and eyebrows. Some people get one at the same time they get a face lift or cosmetic surgery on their nose.
Two Types of Brow Lifts
There are two methods to lift your forehead and eyebrow areas:
• Classic lift
• Endoscopic lift
The classic Lift
Involves one continuous cut beginning at the level of your ears and going up around your hair line. Depending on where your hair line is, the surgeon will work to avoid a visible scar.
The endoscopic Lift
The surgeon makes a few shorter cuts in your scalp. He or she will insert a scope -- a small camera on the end of a thin tube -- into one of the cuts and use another device inserted in another cut to make the necessary changes.
In the endoscopic lift, the surgeon uses small anchors to secure the tissue. Because the cuts are smaller, this procedure is less invasive than the classic lift. You will have minimal scarring and a shorter recovery time.
