Forehead Lift San Ramon, CA
The forehead lift or browlift is a procedure designed to rejuvenate the forehead and elevate drooping eyebrows. When the eyebrows drop low enough to cause a sad or tired look to the face, elevating the brows back to their correct position will rejuvenate and brighten the upper face.
Several procedures can be used depending on the amount of drooping a patient has. The minimally invasive or endoscopic forehead lift uses small incisions in the hair and a camera device to perform the surgery without large incisions. The brows can be lifted and the frown muscles diminished through these incisions with minimal downtime. Surgery time is about 2 hours under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. Depending on the amount of bruising and swelling, the average downtime is about a week. If there is a significant amount of loose skin or more extensive rejuvenation is needed an open forehead lift can be performed with an incision hidden in the hairline
