How is a forehead lift/brow lift done?

An incision, from one to the other ear, is made, a little above the natural hair line. In case of a high forehead, the incision can be at the hair line to reduce the distance between eyebrows and the hair line. Soft tissue is carefully lifted up to the root of the nose. Now we can relax or remove the forehead muscle. Thereafter, we symmetrically rise the eyebrows, and excess skin gets removed.

A week later you have to come for a check up, and to remove sutures and metal clips in the hairline. In case of greater swelling, you generally undergo a lymph drainage and a gentle massage.
