forehead lift in Korea: Although forehead lift is known mainly as a cosmetic surgery performed on middle-aged and elderly people, recently, more people in their 20s and 30s consider it when receiving double eyelid surgery. A forehead lift can improve forehead wrinkles, glabellar lines, eye wrinkles, and eyebrow sagging caused by aging. In this article, we will introduce the method and effects of forehead lifting.
When forehead lift is necessary in Korea
When the skin begins to sag due to aging, opening the eyes becomes not as convenient as it used to be. As the upper eyelid droops, the upper part of the eye pupil gets covered resulting in a narrowed field of vision.
However, young people may experience similar symptoms caused by eyelid ptosis. Ptosis refers to a symptom in which the eyelid muscle loses its power to lift the eyelid. In this case, forehead muscle s are used to help lift the eyelids which results in forehead wrinkles, headaches, and vision decrease.
Various side effects may occur if people try to solve the above mentioned syptoms with eyelid surgery without knowing the cause. The eyelid skin gets thicker as it stretches up from the eyelashes to the eyebrows, and the higher the line is, the thicker the skin folds, resulting in awkward and unnatural results.
In the case of thick eyelids and short distance between them and eyebrows, double eyelids may look like sausages. Also, if you ignore your drooping eyebrows and undergo ptosis surgery, sagging eyebrows, less visible double eyelids, a rough impression, and thicker eyelid skin may occur. In other words, ptosis correction is suitable if the eyebrows don’t droop.
Therefore, even if you are in your 20s or 30s, if the distance between your eyes and eyebrows is too narrow, or if your eyelids are thick, getting forehead lift can solve aesthetic and functional problems.
