key points of endoscopic forehead lift:

Procedure: During the surgery, small incisions are made within the hairline. A tiny, thin tube with a camera (endoscope) is inserted through one of the incisions to visualize the underlying structures. Surgical instruments are passed through other incisions to lift the forehead tissues, reposition the brow, and smooth out any wrinkles or creases.
Minimally Invasive: Compared to traditional forehead lift techniques, the endoscopic approach is less invasive. It uses smaller incisions, resulting in reduced scarring, less tissue trauma, and a quicker recovery period.
Benefits: this procedure can provide several benefits, including a more youthful and refreshed appearance, elevation of sagging brows, smoothing out forehead wrinkles and frown lines, and improving overall facial symmetry.
Recovery: After the surgery, patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with pain medication. Most individuals can resume work and normal activities within a week or two, though the full recovery time may vary from person to person.
Results: The results of an endoscopic procedure are typically long-lasting. It can help restore a more rested and vibrant look by addressing the signs of aging in the forehead and brow area. However, it’s important to note that individual results may vary based on factors such as age, skin condition, and lifestyle.
If you’re considering an endoscopic forehead lift, it’s best to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon who can assess your specific needs and expectations. They will be able to provide personalized advice and guide you through the procedure

How long does endoscopic forehead lift last?

The longevity of the results from an endoscopic forehead lift can vary from person to person. While the procedure is designed to provide long-lasting improvement, it is important to keep in mind that individual factors and the natural aging process can impact the duration of results. Generally, the effects of lifting forehead can last for several years, with some patients experiencing results that can last up to a decade or more.
It’s important to note that the aging process will continue after the surgery, and factors such as genetics, lifestyle, and skincare routine can influence how long the results last. While the surgery can effectively address sagging brows, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines, the effects may gradually diminish over time due to the natural aging of tissues.
To maximize the longevity of your results, it is recommended to follow a healthy lifestyle, protect your skin from sun exposure, and maintain a consistent skincare regimen. Additionally, periodic non-surgical treatments like dermal fillers or botulinum toxin injections may be suggested by your plastic surgeon to complement and extend the results of an endoscopic forehead lift.
It’s always best to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon for an individual assessment and to discuss your specific expectations regarding the longevity of the procedure’s results.

best candidate for forehead lift - Dr. Farzan Rezaei

Who is a good candidate for lifting forehead?

A forehead lift is typically recommended for individuals who have one or more of the following concerns:
1. Sagging or drooping eyebrows: If your eyebrows have descended lower than they should be, giving you a tired, sad, or angry appearance, this procedure can raise and reposition them to a more youthful position.
2. Forehead wrinkles and furrows: Deep horizontal lines across the forehead or vertical lines between the eyebrows (also known as frown lines) can be smoothed out through this procedure.
3. Excess skin on the forehead: If you have loose or redundant skin on your forehead, a forehead lift can help eliminate the excess and create a tighter, smoother appearance.
4. Uneven or asymmetrical eyebrows: If your eyebrows are asymmetrical or have uneven heights, lifting forehead can provide symmetry and balance.
Generally, good candidates for this surgery are in good overall health, have realistic expectations, and are non-smokers or are willing to quit smoking prior to and following the procedure. Additionally, the specific technique used for lifting forehead , such as endoscopic, traditional, or temporal, may also depend on factors like age, degree of brow sagging, and individual anatomy.

simultaneous forehead lift and other cosmetic surgeries

yes, it is possible to undergo multiple cosmetic procedures in conjunction with a forehead lift. In fact, it is quite common for individuals to combine procedures to achieve more comprehensive facial rejuvenation or enhancement.

Some of the cosmetic procedures that are often performed simultaneously with a brow lift include:
1. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty): If you have droopy or puffy eyelids, undergoing eyelid surgery along with a brow lift can address both concerns and provide a refreshed, youthful appearance to the upper face.
2. Facelift or neck lift: If you have significant signs of aging in the lower face and neck, combining a brow lift with a facelift or neck lift can create overall harmony and balance in your facial rejuvenation goals.
3. Dermal fillers or injectables: Non-surgical options like dermal fillers (e.g., hyaluronic acid fillers, collagen stimulators) or injectables (e.g., Botox, Dysport) can be used alongside a brow lift to further enhance the results. Fillers can add volume to areas like the cheeks or lips, while injectables can help relax wrinkles and fine lines.
4. Rhinoplasty: If you are considering reshaping your nose, a brow lift can be performed concurrently with rhinoplasty to achieve a harmonious balance between the upper and middle facial features.

Combining procedures can reduce overall recovery time and provide more comprehensive results. However, it is crucial to discuss your specific goals and concerns with a qualified plastic surgeon who can assess your medical history, perform a thorough examination, and recommend the most appropriate combination of procedures for your individual case.

 Types of forehead lift procedures

There are several types of forehead lift procedures. The specific technique chosen depends on the individual’s needs, anatomy, and surgeon’s expertise. Here are the main types:
1. Traditional or Classic Brow Lift: This procedure involves creating an incision across the top of the scalp, typically hidden within the hairline. The surgeon lifts and re-positions the underlying tissues and muscles to elevate the brows, smooth forehead wrinkles, and restore a more youthful appearance. Excess skin may also be removed.
2. Endoscopic Brow Lift: This minimally invasive technique uses small incisions and an endoscope (a small, flexible tube with a camera) to visualize and adjust the underlying structures of the forehead and brows. The surgeon makes several small incisions within the hairline and inserts the endoscope to guide the procedure. This method typically results in less scarring, a faster recovery, and reduced post-operative discomfort.
3. Temporal or Limited Incision Brow Lift: This technique targets the outer corners of the brow and temples. The incisions are smaller and placed within the hairline or temporal region. The surgeon lifts and re-positions the outer brow while addressing crow’s feet wrinkles and forehead lines in the targeted area.
4. Direct Brow Lift: Recommended for specific cases, the direct brow lift involves removing a small strip of skin just above the eyebrows. This method is usually reserved for patients with significantly drooping brows, and the incisions are placed directly above the brow area in forehead lift procedure.
During a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon, they will evaluate your concerns, skin quality, and desired outcome to determine the most suitable procedure for you. Discussing the advantages, limitations, and potential risks of each technique will help you make an informed decision.
