When to Consider a Forehead lift
This procedure is an option for men and women who are bothered by the drooping of their forehead over their eyes. Characteristics a forehead lift can improve:
- Horizontal lines on forehead, also called “worry lines”
- Heavy, drooping appearance of skin on forehead
- Thickened appearance of brow due to age
If you suffer from any of these complaints and have a realistic view of the results you can achieve with surgery, you are a great candidate for a forehead lift procedure. For long-lasting, healthy results, it is best if you do not smoke, because habitual use of tobacco is bad for your skin, and can affect your recovery. Once you have determined a forehead lift as an option for you, the next step is to consult with Dr. Bared, a South Miami, FL expert in facial plastic surgery.

Dr. Bared’s Approach to a Surgical and Non-surgical Forehead lift
Dr. Bared is highly experienced with forehead lift procedures, and you can expect the utmost safety and efficiency. There are surgical and non-surgical options when fixing lines and creases on the forehead:
Non-surgical Forehead lift Option
Botox can be used to give temporary smoothing results for your forehead. Often, patients are pleased with the open and more youthful appearance they can achieve with injectables. Using Botox around the eyes and forehead works to weaken specific muscles, which causes other muscles in the area to work against gravity and reduce lines and drooping.
Surgical Forehead lift Option
For longer lasting results, some patients prefer to have a surgical forehead lift procedure, called a browlift. These can be performed as an isolated procedure, or in conjunction with other procedures, such as a facelift or eyelid surgery. The doctor creates small incisions in the skin at your hairline, where the scars can be concealed. Then a special instrument is used to alter, reposition, or remove skin from the forehead to correct lines and creases. Then the incisions are closed, and you are on your way to recovery.
Recovery and Results from a Forehead lift
Dr. Bared will provide you with detailed instructions to care for your surgical site. You may be prescribed medication to aid the healing process and lower your risk for infection. Bandages may also be necessary. There may be mild swelling and bruising after the surgery, which will fade as you recover. When your recovery is finished, you will have a smoother, more youthful forehead.
