A lot of my friends and family tell me that I look mad/sad all of the time. I attribute this to my sagging forehead. Will a forehead lift correct this; what can I expect from this surgery?


Forehead lifts are probably the most gratifying. They will give you the open eye, youthful look. There are many ways to do a forehead lift from endoscopic, to full bicoronal to temporal and pretrechal.

Every method has its own indications. Consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and discuss what you need, what is available to you and the results that you expect.

Have a consultation with a Plastic Surgeon where a lot of Botox is also administered. Surgery may be the best option for you, and if that is the case, you certainly don't want to waste your money on Botox, but if you have never tried Botox, or had a consultation for Botox, it might be worth a try. In my practice we always try to consider the least invasive and least expensive treatment that will get the job done. We also want to be sure that people don't spend money on non-surgical treatments when the only real answer is surgery.

In many instances your are correct. You should have an exam by a board Certified Plastic Surgeon to validate your brow position, upper and lower lids. Then you should understand what will help you the most.
