As we age and our skin becomes slacker, the forces of gravity eventually pull everything down. Forehead lines and wrinkles appear and the brows lose their arch. This makes you look older, tired and sometimes even angry. In the worst cases, your vision can actually be affected if the loose skin falls too far over your eyes.
If any of these problems affect you, and you are in good health generally, a forehead lift may be suitable.

There are several techniques in use for forehead lifts which will be decided upon with your surgeon before you go for surgery.
The Open Brow lift uses a continuous incision in the hairline whereby the fat and loose skin is removed through the incision, the remaining skin pulled tight and stitched. The scar is hidden in the hairline.
The Endoscopic Lift uses a long, thin tube which has a light and camera attached. Small incisions are made in the scalp which allow the endoscope to be inserted under the skin without opening a large wound. The surgeon can see what he’s doing by means of a TV monitor.
The Limited Incision lift uses a combination of both, and is particularly good for crow’s feet which where the incision can be hidden in the hairline.
Surgery usually takes between 1 and 3 hours.
After the procedure you may feel numb and tight. You will be given painkillers for the discomfort. After a few days you should start to feel better. You can wash your hair the day after your procedure, providing you don’t get the wounds wet. Use the cool setting on the hairdryer if you are drying your hair.
You can return to work once the stitches have been removed – after a week, but you will need to take it easy and avoid vigorous exercise and heavy lifting for around a month.
In Tijuana, forehead lifts are, on average, around $2,000, compared to $5,000 in the United States.
