Topeka Forehead Lifts

What is a Forehead Lift?

A forehead lift, also known as a brow lift, focuses on the deep creases in the forehead sometimes known as “worry lines.” Over time, the muscles that keep the forehead smooth lose strength, allowing deep wrinkles to appear.

A Kansas forehead lift can also be used to raise the eyebrows, either for cosmetic reasons or because a drooping eyebrow may interfere with vision. In this case, the Topeka forehead lift may be combined with eyelid surgery to reduce sagging skin near the eyelid.

Is a Forehead Lift Right for Me?

Most forehead lifts in Topeka are performed on people between the ages of 40 and 60, when the natural aging process begins to etch visible lines on the face. However, forehead lifts can benefit people of any age who have deep frown lines as a result of muscle activity, stress or inherited conditions. Many Topeka brow lift patients report that their pre-surgery appearance made them look stern, angry, hostile or fatigued.

How is a Topeka Forehead Lift Performed?

Forehead lifts in Topeka are typically performed under general anesthesia or twilight sedation and take about two hours. There are several possible incision patterns, depending on the amount of change involved and the area requiring the most work. In general, there are two types of Topeka forehead lifts: open and endoscopic. An open, or classic, forehead lift requires a large, coronal incision that reaches from ear to ear, typically behind the hairline. In endoscopic surgery the surgeon removes tissue through a pencil-sized tube with the help of a tiny camera.

Whether it’s an open or endoscopic forehead lift, once the incision is made, the surgeon gently removes excess muscle, fat and skin, repositioning the remaining tissues for a smoother appearance. Some of the muscles that cause frown lines may be loosened, and the eyebrows may be repositioned at a higher level on the forehead. Finally, the incision is closed with stitches.

What is Recovery Like After a Forehead Lift?

Topeka forehead lift patients can expect the following short-term side effects after surgery:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Numbness, especially near the incision sites
  • Sun sensitivity in the treated area

These symptoms usually subside within a few weeks, but some side effects may persist for up to three months. You can wear camouflage makeup to cover any bruising or swelling. Most forehead lift patients return to work within two weeks, although those who undergo endoscopic forehead lifts may be able to return to work in as little as a week. You should avoid vigorous activity for four to six weeks and refrain from direct sunlight exposure for at least six months.
