Frown lines are completely natural and begin to appear on the face because of aging. Frown lines usually appear in the form of lines or wrinkles, between the eyes. Surgical treatment of frown lines may diminish wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyes.
The surgery for frown lines is performed under local or general anesthesia. It is often performed in conjunction with a brow lift or blepharoplasty but may also be performed alone. During the procedure, the corrugators muscle and procerus muscles are removed to reduce frown lines. The forehead lift performed for frown lines and forehead wrinkles, also includes the cutting of corrugators muscle and procerus muscle by the surgeon.
The recovery time for surgical treatment of frown lines, generally takes 2 weeks. The patient may return home the same day following the procedure. The cost of surgical treatment is very high, when compared to non-surgical treatments.
