I am 70-years-old and the wrinkles on my forehead are embarrassing. Would I be eligible for a mid-forehead lift? How does that differ from a standard forehead lift?
It is possible that you would be a candidate for a mid-forehead lift, but a forehead lift of any type is designed to elevate the eyebrows, not eliminate wrinkles. The type of forehead lift chosen depends on the height of the hairline and the level of the brow as well as other factors. A mid-forehead brow lift is more often performed on men, but can be performed on women with a high forehead and deep wrinkles. While a forehead lift is really performed to elevate the brow, it will improve wrinkles as well. If the brow does not need to be elevated then the treatment for forehead lines would consist of skin care, botox, and skin resurfacing.
