Is a Forehead Lift Painful?

is a Forehead Lift Painful?

A forehead lift is performed under local anesthesia with sedation to prevent pain during the procedure. There is minimal pain afterward with possible swelling, bruising, and discomfort for the first few days. Patients should use ice packs and avoid heavy lifting for the first two days and can return to work after three to five days. Physicians will provide their patients with detailed post-surgical instructions and pain medication at the surgeon’s discretion. 

What is the Best Age For a Forehead Lift?

The best age for a patient to receive a forehead lift depends on various circumstances. Although most patients who receive them are between the ages of 40 and 60, some patients may require a forehead lift earlier, later, or never. When forehead skin, eyebrows, or upper eyelids begin to sag, a forehead lift can restore the original position of the face and tighten the skin to reduce wrinkles and frown lines, restore vision that is impaired by sagging eyelids, and provide a more youthful appearance.
