Does a facelift improve the wrinkles on the forehead?

Question:

Does a facelift improve the wrinkles on the forehead? Most of the facelift photos I see online deal only with the lower half of the face.

Answer:

A facelift does not necessarily address the wrinkles of the forehead. Patients who have a very heavy forehead and brow region and wrinkles of the forehead are probably better candidates for an endoscopic browlift and mid-facelift procedure. This is done using a fiberoptic technique with no incision on the face and the incisions are actually placed behind the hairline. Essentially this is an upper facelift as compared with the lower facelift that you have visited while doing your homework on line. The procedure is performed as an outpatient and takes approximately two hours with a seven-ten day recovery period. Posted by Dr. Williams
