A forehead lift, also called a browlift, may be a good option for you....

On days when you are feeling well-rested and content, does your facial expression tell a different story? Often, the forehead is the main culprit. A lined or furrowed brow can make a serene face appear upset or concerned. Frown lines between the eyebrows can produce an angry look. A drooping brow can create a perpetually tired or sad look.

If you believe that your forehead is preventing you from looking as good as you feel, a forehead lift, also called a browlift, may be a good option for you. A forehead lift corrects the sagging or low position of the eyebrows, softens horizontal creases across the forehead and erases the worried or angry expression that can result from frown lines. The outcome is a more relaxed and refreshed appearance.

Forehead lifts are most commonly performed on men and women in the 40-60 year old age range. However, there is no age limit to the procedure. It can also produce good results for younger adults who have inherited stress-related conditions, such as low eyebrows or furrows above the nose.

YOU MAY BE A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A FOREHEAD LIFT IF YOU HAVE ANY OF THE FOLLOWING TYPES OF CONDITIONS:
• sagging or low position of the eyebrows, creating a tired or sad appearance
• deep horizontal creases across the forehead
• frown lines, or furrows, between the eyebrows and sometimes across the tip of the nose.

BROWLIFT SURGERY NEEDS TO BE APPROACHED WITH EXTRA CAUTION IF YOU HAVE ANY OF THE FOLLOWING MEDICAL CONDITIONS:
• uncontrolled high blood pressure
• blood-clotting problems
• the tendency to form excessive scars.

Be sure to alert Dr. Gillian if you are affected by any of these problems.
