As told by Dr Vipul Nanda to Arjun Bisht
What is a forehead lift?
The forehead lift, also known as a brow lift, is a procedure designed to improve the appearance of the forehead area by minimizing forehead creases, drooping eyebrows, frown lines, forehead furrows, and hooding over the eyes. By removing excess tissue, altering muscles, and tightening the forehead skin, the result is a more youthful and refreshed appearance with a smoother forehead and elevated eyebrows.
What is the difference between a Forehead Lift and a Face Lift?
A face lift addresses the lower portion of the face, not the area around and above the eyes.
Where are the incisions located for a forehead lift?
For a traditional forehead lift, an incision is made across the top of the forehead at or behind the hairline. For an endoscopic forehead lift, several smaller incisions are made within the hairline
How long is the surgery for a forehead lift?
The average surgery time for a forehead lift is about one to two hours.
When will the stitches be removed after my forehead lift?
The stitches may be removed in about two weeks for the traditional approach and in about one week for the endoscopic approach.
Will a Forehead Lift leave scars?
All surgeries leave some scarring. The crucial question is whether those scars will be visible. During a forehead lift the incisions are made within the hairline, so scars are not visible.
What should I expect post-operatively?
Expect to be swollen and possibly bruised. This is very normal so do not be alarmed. Do not forget to take your antibiotics and pain medication. You may also experience some numbness which will go away gradually. You can resume normal, light activity at this point, but should avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for three to four weeks.
