Gravity and time work against us every single day, with the signs of ageing first revealing themselves on our faces. You may have looked at yourself in the mirror and noticed your facial skin sagging and the sides of your face drooping. You may be concerned about the noticeable change in the look and position of your facial features, such as your eyebrows. If your forehead and eyebrow area are sagging, a forehead lift in Houston may be exactly what you need to restore your youthful appearance and self-confidence.
A forehead lift is a facial plastic surgery procedure that carefully removes excess skin and fat from the forehead and eyebrow area, giving you a lifted, tightened, and more youthful appearance. If done correctly by our highly qualified and talented plastic surgeon, Dr. Olivier Deigni, the forehead lift can work wonders for you.
During the initial consultation, Dr. Deigni will carefully assess you to ensure that you are the right candidate for the forehead lift procedure. We will measure your face to determine the optimal treatment and may even recommend additional procedures such as a facelift, blepharoplasty, or skin resurfacing to help achieve facial harmony.
As with all consultations involving a medical procedure, Dr. Deigni will take your medical history. If necessary, he may recommend that you make appropriate lifestyle changes such as eliminating smoking and other nicotine products, alcohol, recreational drugs, medications such as aspirin, or blood thinners prior to the procedure, and to follow a healthy diet and lifestyle to ensure that your body heals itself properly.
If you are not a suitable candidate for the forehead lift in Houston, our expert medical team can recommend one of our many non-surgical treatment options to help smoothen and tighten your forehead. Sometimes a simple Botox (or other neuromodulator) treatment can get the job done by relaxing the wrinkles that have developed.
The precise forehead lift surgical technique will depend on the position of your eyebrows and the height of your hairline. If you choose to, we can also alter your hairline height during this process.
Dr. Deigni will make a primary incision across the top of the scalp, beginning right above the ears and concealed in the hair. Sometimes it may be placed at the front of the hairline or the middle of the scalp, but no matter where the incision is made, it is designed to heal without being noticed. Through the incision, our expert plastic surgery team can modify parts of the muscles that cause frown lines, remove excess, sagging skin, and raise your eyebrows to a more youthful position.
Immediately after getting a forehead lift in Houston, you will be monitored by our medical specialists for at least half an hour to ensure that there are no complications. Once you are cleared to leave, you are free to head home, though we recommend that you have a friend or family member drive you back.
Surgically lifting the skin on your forehead can revitalize your face, giving it a fresher and more youthful appearance. If you are uncertain if this is the correct choice for you, we can discuss further during a consultation.
