A facelift, technically known as a rhytidectomy, (surgical removal of wrinkles), is a type of cosmetic surgery procedure that aims to create a more youthful facial appearance.
There are multiple surgical techniques. It usually involves the removal of excess facial skin, with or without the tightening of underlying tissues, and the redraping of the skin on the patient’s face and neck. Facelifts are often combined with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) and other facial procedures, and are typically performed under general anesthesia or deep twilight sleep.
A forehead lift, also known as a browlift or browplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to help elevate a drooping eyebrow that may obstruct vision and/or to reduce the deep “worry” lines that run across the forehead and may portray to others anger, sternness, hostility, fatigue or other unintended emotions.
In otherwords, browlift is a surgical procedure to shift the position of the soft tissues of the forehead and thereby the appearance of the upper face and also reduce sagging of skin in the eyebrows and above the nose.
Multiple surgical approaches have been developed, and more than one may be used in combination by surgeons wishing to elevate the forehead skin.
