Are You Considering a Forehead Lift?
A forehead lift is a type of surgery that’s aimed at making the upper part of the face look younger and healthier, although in a few cases, it’s used for non-cosmetic purposes. It’s also known as “browlift” or “browplasty,” because it usually involves lifting the brow.
A forehead lift is often performed with other types of cosmetic surgery, the most common one being rhytidectomy. The benefits of having two or more facial surgeries at the same time is to limit the time spent at the hospital, to reduce the healing and recovery time, to take advantage of the anesthesia, to lower the cost of the stay at the hospital, and to achieve a natural facial look.
Since facial cosmetic surgery is as much about aesthetics as it is about technique and skill, having all surgeries by the same surgeon assures that the face will have a blended, effortless look. The skilled surgical team at Bahamas Medical Center offers prices that are so affordable that it’s possible to consider more than one procedure.
Benefits of a Forehead Lift
There are several benefits of a forehead lift:
- Reduces or eliminates the horizontal wrinkles that appear on the forehead and on the bridge of the nose.
- Reduces or eliminates the vertical lines above the eyebrows, commonly referred to as frown lines.
- Places the eyebrows in a higher position, giving the brow and the eyes a youthful look.
- With brows that have started to sag, a browlift positions them back into their more natural place. This specific procedure is needed in cases where age, a disease or trauma have dropped the brow to the point where it blocks the vision of the eye.
Since each face is different and there are several techniques that can be used during surgery, the patient and the surgeon will have to talk in advance about what procedures will be used and what the intended results will be.
Cost of a Forehead Lift in the United States
Because a forehead lift is a cosmetic procedure, it’s rare that an insurance company will cover the costs. A patient usually has to pay all fees out of his or her own pocket. When talking about the cost with your doctor, ask what the approximate total cost will be. Be aware that the price may not include medications and other items or services. You’ll also need to ask if the hospital and anesthesiologist’s fees are included.
The price will also vary greatly depending on your location. For example, while surgeons across the US may charge similar amounts for their services, the price for a forehead lift in New York City will be much higher because of increased hospitals and clinic fees.
An average price for a browlift in New York is around $10,000. Since many people will want to rejuvenate their entire face, it’s wise to consider the price of the complementary surgeries to complete the desired look. The cost of a rhytidectomy can add another $10,000 or more to the bill.
When you consider the total cost for one or more procedures including hospital fees, it’s worthwhile to consider scheduling a forehead lift and complementary surgeries in the Bahamas. Why? Even when including the costs for air travel, hotel and meals, the pricing at the Bahamas Medical Center will still afford substantial savings over the costs for the same procedures in the US and Canada. Additionally, the Bahamas Medical Center offers modern equipment and highly accomplished surgeons who receive ongoing training in the latest medical procedures. You can rest assured that you will receive the same level of quality service and care that you would receive at home. The VIP service available only at Bahamas Medical Center ensures that your care will always be attentive and personal.
It’s better in the Bahamas! While it’s true that you can get your forehead lift surgery anywhere, what could be better than to recover from your cosmetic surgery on the stunning white sand beaches of The Bahamas?
