How to Prepare for a Forehead Lift

Forehead Lift Guilford, CTIf you have noticed that you look sad and grumpy on the outside all of the time but you don’t feel that way on the inside, then it may be due to some sagging skin around your eyebrows. As you age, your skin starts to lose a lot of elasticity; especially around your eyes and forehead, which can make you look a lot more tired and less youthful. So, other than Botox, what are some other ways to help make you look more awake and alive? A forehead lift.

What Is a Forehead Lift?

Here at Dr. Gary J. Price’s office, we offer patients a variety of surgical procedures to help reverse signs of aging including a forehead lift. A forehead lift tightens the skin and soft tissues on the forehead to help counteract the effects of gravity and age; giving you a more youthful forehead, upper eyelids, and eyebrow line.

How to Prepare for a Forehead Lift

Just like with any sort of surgery that Dr. Price performs, we will send you home with everything that you need to know about preparing for your surgery. However, just to reiterate, let’s take a closer look at how you can prepare for your big surgery day.

  • Stop smoking at least six weeks before your surgery because it can increase your risk of surgical complications.
  • Avoid taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs, large doses of Vitamin C or Vitamin E, fish oil, and flaxseed oil. These types of medications can increase bleeding episodes during and after the procedure.
  • Arrange for someone to drive you to the clinic on the day of the surgery and to drive you home afterward. Additionally, someone should be with you during the first night following your procedure.
  • Prepare for your recovery by getting ice packs or frozen peas ready in the freezer to reduce swelling after surgery.

Preparing for a forehead lift doesn’t have to be hard and complicated but it can make your entire experience a lot more enjoyable. To learn more about surgery, preparation, or recovery, schedule an appointment at our Guilford office today and call us at (203) 453-6635.

How to Get Rid of Forehead Wrinkles

Forehead Lift Surgery Guilford, CT | New HavenAs you age, your skin starts to lose elasticity and collagen— leaving you with fine lines and wrinkles that can make you feel a bit older than you are— or care to admit. Luckily, there are a variety of both non-invasive and surgical procedures that can be done to help you get rid of your forehead wrinkles and enjoy life more fully. From facial creams to a forehead lift, this article will list a few of your options. Read on to learn more.

Facial Creams

Facial creams have come a long way— not only are they good at trapping moisture in your skin, but they can also help with things like combatting fine lines and wrinkles. When shopping for a facial cream, look for one that contains ingredients like Retinol. Derived from Vitamin A, Retinol is known to help smooth out the skin and treat fine lines and wrinkles from the inside, out.

Botox

One of the most popular ways that our patients like to get rid of forehead wrinkles is by temporarily softening them with Botox injections. By softening the muscles in the forehead, Botox works to temporarily alleviate fine lines and wrinkles and leave you with a smoother looking complexion.

Forehead Lift

Similar to a facelift, a forehead (brow lift) is a surgical procedure that is used to lift and tighten the skin around the forehead and eyebrows. There are several different types of forehead lifts that Dr. Gary J. Price can perform— all of which have a different incision size and location. During your initial consultation with Dr. Price, you will go over your options.

Depending on the severity of your forehead wrinkles, one of the above three options may be more beneficial to you. If you would like to learn more about how we can help soften your forehead wrinkles, call Dr. Gary J. Price’s office today at (203) 453-6635!
