The formation of wrinkles are an inevitable part of life that becomes more prominent as you age. They are also a sign that the skin is aging and needs attention. There are several reasons why you may be experiencing the signs of aging. These factors include damage caused by the sun, pollution, smoking, improper skin care, genetics, and poor nutrition.

Wrinkles can be delayed by a proper skin care practices and a healthy lifestyle, but that can only do so much on its own. Fortunately, a forehead lift is here to help you out.

Types of Wrinkles

There are several types of facial wrinkles. Crow’s feet refers to the wrinkles that occur in the outer corners of the eyes. Marionette lines are the vertical lines that run down from the mouth to the chin and are a sign of advanced aging.

Nasolabial folds, also called smile lines, are the two skin folds running between the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Eye wrinkles are those seen under the eye. Frown lines are the vertical wrinkles that appear on the forehead and between the eyebrows. Forehead wrinkles, also called worry lines are creases or folds in the skin of the forehead.

Forehead lines occur naturally as part of the aging process. But sometimes, younger people can develop these lines early due to genetics, habitual facial expressions, and sun damage. A good skin care routine can help to delay these wrinkles from appearing. For wrinkles that are already in the brow region, forehead lift cosmetic surgery, also known as a brow lift, is a helpful solution.

Brow Lift Cosmetic Surgery

When the skin is left untreated with a proper skin care routine, wrinkles and fine lines are prone to appear earlier than expected. The problem with forehead wrinkles is that it affects our facial expressions.

Brow lift surgery helps get rid of uninvited wrinkles on the forehead. It rejuvenates the face above the eyes and restores a refreshed appearance. The brow lift surgery removes the excess sagging skin on the forehead and repositions the underlying muscles and tissues. A brow lift eliminates deep furrows, corrects heavy, sagging brows, and restores the smooth and youthful look of the forehead.

Coronal Brow Lift

There are three types of brow lift surgeries, namely Endoscopic brow lift, Temporal or limited incision brow lift, and the classic, coronal brow lift. A coronal brow lift is a surgical procedure that helps elevate and smoothen the forehead, lifts the drooping eyebrows and shifts a receding hairline forward.

A coronal incision is created from ear to ear across the top of the head. The incision is made within the hair bearing skin. The forehead skin is lifted and muscle adjustments are made. The scar from the incision is concealed within the hair.

The results of this cosmetic surgery can be seen within a few weeks, after the swelling and bruising subside. This technique is best suited for patients whose forehead skin is severely wrinkled.

It is also effective in bringing the hairline forward and elevating the eyebrows. A coronal brow lift reduces wrinkles on the forehead, improves frown lines, and places the eyebrows in a youthful position. It rejuvenates the face above the eyes to give it a more refreshed, youthful appearance.
