For a full facial rejuvenation, ask Dr. Careaga or Dr. Durand about combining your forehead lift with a facelift (rhytidectomy) or eyelid (blepharoplasty) surgery.

Who Is a Candidate for a Forehead or Brow Lift?
Men and women who are looking to cosmetically remove the deep wrinkles on their forehead are excellent candidates for a brow lift. A brow lift is good for patients that are between the ages of 40 to 60 years. Also, Dr. Careaga and Dr. Durand advises that a brow lift works best on those patients that don’t need a full facelift. Be sure to discuss your aesthetic facial rejuvenation goals with Dr. Careaga or Dr. Durand so he can recommend the best surgical and non-surgical procedures that will accomplish your goals and provide you with natural looking results.
What Results Can I Expect From a Forehead or Brow Lift?
As we age, both men and women alike are basically fighting a losing battle with gravity and the loss of skin elasticity. Over time, the skin on the eyelids and forehead begins to sag and wrinkle. With an endoscopic brow lift, Dr. Daniel E. Careaga utilizes his plastic surgery training and skill to surgically lift the brow line.
By carefully and precisely lifting the forehead, his patients immediately notice that their forehead wrinkles and creases are gone, and as an added bonus, their eyes emerge as the eyelids are also lifted giving a more open and refreshed look.
Consultation Process With Daniel E. Careaga or Dr. Paul D. Durand
Your doctor can help you determine if you are a candidate for a brow lift and/or a combination of facial rejuvenation procedures. A forehead lift can be done as a solo procedure or, if advised, with other facial surgery procedures such as a partial or full facelift, or specialized laser resurfacing procedures.
Careaga Plastic Surgery’s Brow Lift Surgical Technique and Protocol
Dr. Careaga and Dr. Durand utilize an endoscopic surgical technique. With this approach he makes several tiny incisions within the scalp at the hairline. After which he gently inserts a small endoscope so that he can clearly see the forehead and eyebrows as the images are relayed to a television monitor. This precise surgical technique and your doctor’s plastic surgery training allows him to lift the skin and remove excess fat, muscles, or skin on the forehead and eyebrows.
The forehead lift is performed under general anesthesia in an accredited outpatient surgical center. As with most aesthetic procedures you must have someone take you home and assist in your care for a few days.
