I am interested in getting a brow lift but there is one thing that is holding me back. I feel like I have a somewhat large forehead. It is not something that I feel like I need to fix, just something that I wouldn’t want to get any larger. I am convinced that getting a brow lift would make this worse because I assume the hairline is raised. Is there some way to avoid this?
Yes. One way to avoid this is to do a temple brow lift which does surgery mostly on the lateral aspects of the brow. The other thing is to do what is called a tricophitic brow where the incision is just at the edge of the hairline and this will not increase the size of the forehead itself. Another procedure is simply to have hair transplantation done to the anterior aspect of the hairline to help bring down the hairline to the appropriate size that you wish. Any of those three things can be done as a way of managing the problem of an increasing forehead.
