Brow Lift Procedures Help Alleviates 92% of Migraines

May 28, 2012 - By Dr. Jules Feledy

Using brow lifts to handle migraines

A plastic surgery report on The Wall Street Journal’s MarketWatch explains how forehead lifts have been wildly successful in treating migraine pain. This gives these popular procedures another wide-reaching benefit in addition to their youthful and energetic aesthetic results.

This information was released in the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal, and announced the incredible success rate for handling migraines among the forehead lift patients involved as 92%. These patients received a standard forehead lift with a focus on the removal of muscle or nerve tissue that could lead to migraines.

Cosmetic Procedures Provide Dramatic Benefits to Appearance and Migraine Pain

The forehead lift is quickly becoming a popular alternative to the traditional and historically popular facelift procedure. A few facts about the forehead lift, also known as the brow lift:

  • 28,200 people received a forehead lift in 2011, according to the ASAPS
  • Ideal patient age for the procedure is 40-60, though it may be useful for those beyond that range in either direction
  • Generally more affordable than facelifts, with a shorter recovery time

Forehead lifts come in two basic types, including the endoscopic forehead lift and the coronal forehead lift. The endoscopic procedure uses four small vertical incisions hidden within the hairline, through which an endoscope is passed to complete the surgery. This offers patients a very minimal recovery time with excellent results.

For greater effect, the traditional coronal forehead lift may be a better option. This procedure uses an ear to ear incision that extends along the hairline. The skin and underlying tissue are stretched and wrinkles and facial lines are reduced.

These popular procedures are often performed in conjunction with other procedures, such as eyelid surgery, skin rejuvenation procedures or injectable facial fillers to provide the best overall facial result. Now these results can be combined with a decrease in migraine pain.
