A forehead lift, also called a brow lift, works to correct the effects of gravity by tightening the tissues of the forehead. The incision for a brow lift goes across the top of your scalp beginning above your ears. It may be placed behind or at the hairline, depending upon your particular anatomy. Through the created incision, the muscle that causes wrinkling and frown lines is modified or even removed, having an effect similar to that of a continual Botox injection in the frown muscle area, or removed. In addition, excess skin is removed, restoring the eyebrows to a natural, more youthful position.
