Forehead Wrinkles: Before And After

Forehead Wrinkles: Before And After

We all rely on our face to convey certain emotions, however, some signs of aging can give people the wrong message.  Vertical lines between our eyebrows can give us an upset look even though being angry is furthest from our minds. After the age of 40, visible signs of aging appear on the face. One of the places where this is prominent is the forehead. Horizontal lines manifest on the forehead due to constant muscle movement. Vertical lines between the brows also appear. But these forehead wrinkles can be erased through forehead lift surgery. VIP’s forehead lift surgery will restore your youthful appearance and give you a natural, beautiful result.


Only an extremely talented plastic surgeon who performs forehead lift surgery will be able to remove forehead wrinkles. At VIP, this is one of our signature surgeries. There are two surgical options to remove forehead wrinkles: traditional forehead lift or endoscopic forehead lift. In a traditional forehead lift, there are effective results however it requires a long recovery time, leaves a long scar on the scalp, and causes hair loss around the incision area.

An Endoscopic forehead & brows lift is the 2.0 version of the traditional forehead lift. It elevates the eyebrows, smoothes the forehead and reduces the effect of muscle contraction on the area between the eyebrows. It is innovative because it achieves similar results to the traditional forehead lift as it only requires a tiny 1 to 2 cm incisions and an endoscope. The surgeon uses an endoscope which is inserted through the incisions to see the treatment area on a television screen. The surgeon uses an instrument to lift the forehead skin, reposition the eyebrows and remove the muscle tissues that have caused the lines on the forehead.

Sometimes a surgeon will combine other procedures along with the endoscopic forehead & brows lift. The surgeon may recommend a forehead lift in combination with eyelid surgery in order to restore the eye area. Alternatively, the surgeon may combine the forehead lift with a facelift or neck lift to completely rejuvenate the face.


The ideal forehead lift candidate is someone who wants to attain a youthful look and get rid of frown lines, forehead wrinkles and droopy eyelids. Generally, patients who opt for forehead lift surgery are between the ages of 40 and 50 years old. You should be in good overall health and not suffer from any conditions that can be deemed unhealthy while undergoing surgery.



Generally, the recovery from the endoscopic forehead lift is not too long. You should expect to be out of commission for approximately a week. This doesn’t mean that you will be bedridden, it just means that you should take it easy and relax.  After a couple of weeks, the swelling and bruising from the surgery will subside.  In order to alleviate the swelling, you should apply cold compresses.  In addition, the doctor will recommend that you sleep upright with pillows.  

As always, in order to keep the swelling down, you should move around so that you keep your blood flowing. However, strenuous exercise is not recommended. Consequently, lifting heavy items and bending is prohibited. 

In order to achieve the best results, a patient needs to understand about the surgery and what are the risks and the benefits. The best way to learn if you are an ideal candidate for a forehead lift is to contact us for a consultation and/or to send a picture.  We will be able to discuss with you all the options in great detail.
