At The Larrabee Center for Plastic Surgery, Seattle, Washington area patients have access to surgical solutions for the face and body that can help them look younger and feel more confident in their own skin. One common complaint is the process of aging and the changes that it can cause in the facial area. Facial folds and imperfections, such as lines across the forehead and drooping brows can result in patients looking tired or angry. This is not the first impression patients want to give to others! With a plastic surgery procedure such as a forehead lift, these lines and sagging can be corrected to achieve a more pleasing appearance.
How does a forehead lift work?
The forehead lift, sometimes called a browlift, is a surgical procedure used to restore a youthful, refreshed appearance to the face by addressing concerns that impact the upper third portion. This includes lowered eyebrows, creases in the foreheads, and hooding that can increase over the eyes due to brow position. The procedure itself can be performed in such a way to reduce scarring and provide a less invasive technique, such as endoscopically. Incisions are often made behind the ears or in the hairline to disguise any scarring that might occur, and ensure a natural-looking improvement. The procedure itself often takes about an hour to complete, and recovery time is needed to allow for proper healing.
What are the risks of undergoing the forehead lift procedure?
All surgeries include some risks. When performed by a trained and experienced professional such as Dr. Wayne Larrabee, patients can rest easy knowing that complications are often rare, but may include facial numbness, cosmetic asymmetry, and risk of infection at the incision points.
