Forehead Lifting – For Smoother, Younger Skin

Furrows on the forehead and frown lines between the eyebrows are signs of natural aging. The forehead skin loses elasticity over the years and frequently there is an excess of skin that develops on the upper eyelid. Often, the eyebrows also droop.
Why look tired, stressed or angry when this does not match your attitude towards life?
With a forehead lifting, the facial surgeons at Rosenpark Clinic smooth out the upper part of the face and give a natural-looking lift to the eyebrows – with visibly skin-rejuvenating effect.

How is it performed?

The plastic surgeon places the incision at the hairline in the upper half of the face. Then skin and fat tissue up the eyebrows are loosened and lifted from the muscle layer. Excess skin is removed before the surgeon closes the suture without any tension. After the procedure, the scar is covered by hair and is thus usually not visible to others.

What sort of anesthesia is required?

Forehead lifting is performed under general anesthesiaFor more information about your options for a comfortable, pain-free treatment see the anesthesia section.

When can I resume normal daily activities?

Following the surgery, we will keep you overnight here. We will provide wound care and cool down swelling around the eyes. The sutures will be removed eight to ten days after the procedure. Then you will be able to fully resume normal daily activities. You should only gradually increase physical exertion following the surgery.

What else you can do

  • Forehead lifting can be combined with additional lifting surgeries such as upper lid lifting or lower lid lifting – for an overall more alert, more friendly look.
  • Wrinkles can also be treated without incisions using hyaluronic acidlaser and Botox®.
  • Having a loss of fat in the lower eyelid region means having to deal with dark circles around the eyes. Here, an injection of hyaluronic acid or autologous fat  can not only eliminate a tired look but also the dark shadows under the eyes are significantly reduced – with a very natural, lasting result.
  • Radiofrequency (Thermage® or Fractora®) is a nonsurgical alternative to the forehead lift.
