A forehead lift can minimize the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin in the eyebrow area. This procedure can give you a more youthful, attentive look. But are you wondering whether you’re at the right age to get this procedure? The experts at Adoro Medical Spa in Severna Park, MD recommend that you get this procedure if you want to minimize the signs of aging that develop in your 40s.
What Is the Best Age for Getting a Forehead Lift?
Getting a forehead lift (more commonly known as a brow lift) can significantly improve the appearance of men and women who are bothered by facial skin laxity. We usually recommend this procedure to those who are over the age of 45. If you are in your 20s and 30s and would like to tighten the skin in your forehead area, you may be more suited to non-invasive skin tightening treatment, such as laser therapy.
Before scheduling your procedure, our team will ensure that you’re in good overall health and have just the right skin quality to achieve your desired results. For this reason, the best age to get this cosmetic surgery is anywhere between your 40s to 60s. If you are planning to get cosmetic surgery in your 70s, we will need to carefully consider your health status and make sure that there isn’t too much risk involved.
Assess Your Skin Condition
Due to aging and collagen loss, our skin eventually loses elasticity and begins to sag. This causes the skin around our eyes and forehead to sag downwards. Horizontal forehead wrinkles and lines begin to appear, and fatty tissues may gather above or below the eyes.
If you are bothered by these issues, you can benefit from a forehead lift. The procedure can get rid of excess skin and fat, lift your forehead and brows, and smooth away your wrinkles. However, if you also have sagging eyelids and wrinkles in the eye area, we may recommend cosmetic eyelid surgery in addition to a brow lift.
Ensure You’re in Good Health
Before recommending cosmetic surgery, we’ll ensure that you’re in good overall health. Our team will ask about any preexisting medical conditions, your general health history, and whether you’re a smoker or not. By being in good health for this surgical procedure, you can be more confident about recovering successfully and achieving your ideal results.
In general, most patients need to set aside two to four weeks to heal and recover from a brow lift. The complexity and extent of your procedure will determine how long your healing period will be. And by being in good health before the procedure, you can expect to have a smooth and swift recovery period.
Consider the Extent of Your Concerns
Visible signs of aging can appear at different ages for many people. For example, you may notice significant signs of skin laxity in your 30s, while others may have relatively smooth, tight skin until their 40s or 50s. We recommend that you seek surgical intervention as soon as you notice bothersome fine lines and forehead wrinkles that affect your self-confidence.
By getting a forehead lift at the right age, it’s possible to preserve your youthful appearance for much longer. You may also eliminate the need for other skin-tightening procedures that aim to minimize forehead wrinkles.
How Is a Forehead Lift Performed?
The procedure is performed with anesthesia. To start, we will make small incisions within the hairline. Your skin and forehead muscles are then tightened to minimize sagging and wrinkles. We will also remove excess fat and skin for a smoother, younger-looking appearance.
The technique we’ll use to perform your brow lift will depend on your facial structure, the extent of skin laxity, and facial volume. During your consultation with our team, we will discuss and recommend the best type of surgical technique for you.
A traditional or classic brow lift involves making an incision across the top of the forehead. This incision extends from just above one ear to about one ear level across. We may also create an incision next to your hairline.
Through this incision, we will eliminate excess tissue and fat from the forehead area, improve the alignment of facial muscles, and lift the skin. We may also raise your eyebrows to a higher position that gives you a more youthful look. If you are expecting more dramatic, profound results from your lift, this technique may be perfect for you.
An endoscopic lift is a minimally invasive procedure that involves making small, hidden incisions within the scalp. We will then use a fiber optic device to move your facial tissues. Excess fat and skin are also removed. Your lifted skin and facial tissues are fixed in place with sutures.
If you are more concerned with the correction of the outer portion of your eyebrows, we can recommend an endoscopic lift to you. This technique can also provide you with a more dramatic, elegant-looking brow arch.
The least invasive technique is the temporal lift. This procedure doesn’t require an overnight hospital stay, and you’ll be able to resume your normal activities within a week. Using small incisions behind the hairline, we will elevate your eyebrow and forehead area. This technique allows us to reposition your eyebrows to a more desirable level without making an incision across your forehead.
If you’d like to enjoy a faster recovery period, getting a temporal lift may be right for you. This procedure can help you achieve beautiful and natural-looking results without the longer downtime associated with other types of forehead lifts.
Why Should You Consider Getting a Forehead Lift?
As you approach your 50s and 60s, the skin on your face tends to sag with age. One way to minimize skin laxity and other signs of aging is to get a forehead or brow lift. Our team can perform this procedure to correct your flaws and blemishes, helping you stay ahead of the aging process.
You Seek Permanent, Long-Term Results
Getting cosmetic injections and laser treatments can improve the appearance of your skin, but if you’re looking for a more permanent option, getting a brow lift may be more suitable for you. Injections and laser treatments may require ongoing, repeated treatments to give you significant results. However, if you’d like to save time and money in the long term, you might find cosmetic surgery to be a more preferable option.
A surgical lift offers more permanent and long-lasting improvements than superficial treatments. By choosing to get a forehead or brow lift, you may only need to visit us for a few times to get your desired results. Additionally, you can expect the result of your procedure to last for years.
