One of the most noticeable differences in one’s appearance over time is lines, wrinkles, and an overall heaviness of the forehead and brow. This occurs as someone grows older because the skin naturally produces less and less elastin and collagen, which help keep the skin plump and supple, but also because the muscles of the forehead can become weak or stretched over time. Frown lines and wrinkles across the forehead can make a person look sad, tired, angry, or older, regardless of how they feel or their actual age. For a long-lasting solution, many people choose to undergo a procedure known as a forehead lift or brow life.
A forehead lift can successfully smooth our wrinkles and alleviate heaviness that may even push the brows lower, creating hooded upper eyelids.

Surgical Treatments for Forehead Wrinkles
The most effective and long-lasting solution for wrinkles across the forehead is to surgically lift the forehead. There are a number of techniques that may be used to achieve the best possible outcome depending on each patient’s needs. The various
Endoscopic Forehead Lift
The newest and most minimally-invasive forehead lift procedure involves only three to five small incisions in the scalp, through which small instruments are used to loosen the skin of the forehead. A small endoscopic camera is inserted to provide the surgeon with clear visuals of the surgical site. When the tissue is tightened, the incisions are sutured and concealed within the hair. This procedure can be used to lift the entire upper face, as well as contour the forehead and soften lines.
The Pretrichial Forehead Lift
This procedure involves only incisions along the hairline along the temples in order to life the outer half of each of the eyebrows. The pretrichial forehead lift is ideal for those who want to life the eyebrows while also shortening the forehead by lowering the hairline. The incisions are placed in such a way that once they heal, they are relatively undetectable.
