Generally, forehead lifts are performed after the age of 40 to offset obvious signs of aging, such as droopiness and pronounced horizontal lines and furrows. This procedure also helps anyone, who have deep frown lines and furrows due to stress or heavy physical exertion, or even in some cases where heredity plays a role. A forehead lift can be performed as a stand-alone procedure or in conjunction with eyelid surgery or a facelift. Sometimes a person chooses eyelid surgery only to learn a forehead lift would produce better overall results.
Patients who are bald or have a receding hairline or had previous upper eyelid surgery can still have a forehead lift. In every case, the goal of the plastic surgeon is to refresh the patient’s appearance and improve his self-confidence.
