The human face gives away much more information about a person than many people realize. People will know (or assume) that you are tired if your eyebrows sag, will think you unhappy if your furrow your brows, will often think you older than you actually are by the lines across your forehead. You could be in your mid-thirties and the happiest person on earth, yet your face says something different.
A youthful appearance is generally associated with happiness and peace. Children and young people are often admired for their sense of wonder and awe about life. And then life happens to them – stress of paying bills, responsibilities of life, family demands, and other things weigh people down. While this is the natural rhythm of life, it does not have to write itself all over your face.
Over time, age and gravity cause the eyebrows to descend and the brow arch to become less defined. These changes often give a person’s face a tired, sad, or even perpetually mad appearance. A forehead lift (often referred to as a brow lift) is designed to elevate the brow and restore the natural contour of the eyebrow so that the restful and youthful appearance is reestablished to the face.
A brow lift is a procedure that works to reposition the sagging tissues and muscles beneath the forehead in order to restore a youthful appearance and position. There are different techniques used on a per-patient basis. Some brow lift techniques remove skin tissues while others simply “lift” the brow. Dr. Maurice Khosh of Manhattan, New York, meets with patients individually in a thorough consultation to listen to their concerns and to examine the upper face and brow. He will help patients determine the best approach for a forehead lift to specifically address their concerns and the framework of the individual face. Recovery time will depend upon the technique used, but generally requires 1-2 weeks of complete down time. After this time, patients are generally ready to return to work and normal activity after 10-14 days.
A forehead lift procedure requires the expertise of a gifted surgeon. While patients want to regain a youthful appearance, they do not want to end up with a permanent “deer in the headlights” look. Do not settle for a cosmetic surgeon who is close by or convenient. Choose a renowned and respected surgeon. Dr. Maurice Khosh utilizes artistry and precision in all cosmetic procedures.
