A forehead lift or “browlift” is used to correct a drooping browline (eyebrow area) reducing the horizontal lines and furrows (worry lines) that often make a person appear angry, sad, or tired. The procedure typically creates a refreshed, youthful appearance to the forehead area above the eyes.
When performing a forehead lift procedure, muscles and tissue areas that droop or cause creases are removed or corrected to smooth the skin on the forehead to reduce frown lines and raise the eyebrows. There are two surgical methods, and during your initial consultation, the procedure that works best for you will be recommended. The first is the most conventional method where a surgical incision is hidden just above the hairline. Dr. DiBello specializes in a minimally invasive form of browlift using an endoscope which enables the procedure to be performed with a minimal number of incisions and a quicker recovery time. While the traditional method can sometimes attain more lift, both methods are designed to create smoother, flatter skin on the forehead.
A consultation with Dr. DiBello will help you determine if you are a candidate for browlift surgery. At that time, he will discuss what is involved in your personal surgical experience and the best technique for you to achieve a natural, more refreshed result.
