Forehead Lift


What is a forehead lift?

In a forehead lift, also referred to as a brow lift, the muscles and skin that cause the problems are altered to smooth the forehead, raise the eyebrows and upper eyelids and minimize frown lines.

Am I a good candidate for forehead lift plastic surgery?

The best candidates for forehead lifts are men or women who wish to have a smooth forehead appearance, or for those patients who have inherited conditions, such as droopy brow or furrowed lines above the nose.

What will be discussed during my consultation for a forehead lift?

In your initial consultation the plastic surgeon will evaluate your forehead, including the skin and underlying bone, and discuss your goals for surgery. He will explain the techniques and anesthesia he will use, and the risks and costs involved.

What is the recovery period for forehead lift surgery?

Most patients are back at work about two weeks after forehead lift surgery. You may experience some numbness and temporary discomfort around the incision, which can be controlled by medication prescribed by your surgeon. Swelling and bruising should disappear in a week or so. Your doctor will tell you to keep your head elevated for two or three days following the surgery to keep swelling down.
