Forehead Lift Surgery in Monterey

The everyday stresses of life—as well as the effects of age, gravity, and exposure to sunlight—take a toll on a person’s face. Muscles may droop, making the face look sad or tired. In some patients, the sagging brow skin can even obstruct vision. Monterey plastic surgeon Dr. Douglas Sunde understands that these unwelcome changes can harm a person’s confidence. A forehead lift can alleviate many of these symptoms.

Results of Forehead Lift Plastic Surgery

A forehead lift or brow lift can help restore youth and vibrancy to a person’s face, enhancing both physical appearance and self-confidence. Natural-looking results virtually undo the unwanted effects of time. Dr. Sunde accomplishes these effects by removing and tightening muscles and other tissues that cause skin to droop.

A Personal Approach

Each brow lift is an individualized procedure. During the initial consultation, Dr. Sunde discusses each patient’s goals realistically. Since forehead lifts are often performed in conjunction with other facial surgeries, Dr. Sunde along with his patient will decide which procedures he will perform in order to achieve the desired results. Once a date for surgery is set, our office will provide instructions about how to prepare.

“As I was aging, when I looked in the mirror, I no longer felt like I saw myself. After the operation, I now feel like I see myself in the mirror again.” – Actual Patient

Brow Lift Procedure Details

A forehead lift is performed with the patient under anesthesia. The duration of surgery depends on the extent and of procedures; for instance, if Dr. Sunde is performing an endoscopic brow lift alone, surgery will generally take less time than a brow lift as part of a full facelift.

Because each person’s anatomy is different, each forehead lift requires a customized approach. Dr. Sunde either uses the classic method or the endoscopic method to tighten the brow. Both procedures involve inconspicuous incisions in the hairline. Dr. Sunde tightens the brow skin, removes any excess tissue that causes drooping and then resets the brow line so it can heal.
