This procedure will lift your entire face and change your expression, it will also create a brighter more youthful appearance. The skin on the forehead is tightened and smoothed out and the eyebrows are lifted so loose skin is eliminated and wrinkles are dramatically reduced.
The procedure is performed under local or general anaesthetic and usually takes between 1 to 3 hours. The surgeon will make an incision across the forehead around the hairline and then remove excess tissue before tightening the brow and repositioning the skin.
Will I lose my hair?
There is a very small chance that you may lose a tiny section from where the insertion is made, but the hair will grow back as normal.
Will the forehead drop again?
With the aging process it is possible that over time you will notice the appearance isn’t quite as tight. There is no lifetime guarantee.
Does the procedure hurt?
You may feel slightly headachy where the incision lines are, there may be some swelling and bruising which may cause a little discomfort. However, once the recovery period is underway this will subside.
How long is the recovery time?
Initially recovery is 2-3 weeks, full recovery is 4 – 6 months.
