Also known as a brow lift, a forehead lift rejuvenates the upper third of the face by elevating and repositioning the brow and forehead. Like eyelid surgery, this procedure can improve the appearance around the eyes, helping to correct a tired or aged look. Forehead lift surgery also can improve deep forehead creases and hyperactive muscles.

Approaches to Forehead Lift

There are two major approaches for forehead lift surgery: endoscopic and open. The endoscopic approach uses short incisions that are placed behind the hairline to help elevate the brows, tighten the skin, and address muscle hyperactivity. This method has many advantages and can be used on a majority of patients.

The open forehead lift technique involves an incision that extends from ear to ear. This can be placed either completely within the scalp or partially along the hairline at the top of the forehead. In certain situations, this approach can provide a better outcome.

There are much less common techniques to a forehead lift that are reserved for specific situations. These include incisions placed through the upper eyelid when combined with eyelid surgery or placed in a forehead crease for men with advanced balding.

A forehead lift is usually performed as an outpatient procedure and is frequently combined with eyelid surgery and a facelift. Learn more about forehead lift surgery by contacting our practice today or by visiting our FAQs page.

A Message Regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19

In light of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to let you know of some of the major precautions we are taking in our office to maximize cleanliness and keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible. Our highest priority is always to ensure the safety of every individual who sees us and we are taking extreme infection-control measures to maintain cleanliness and “sterility” of surfaces and the overall environment.

We will be limiting dates and times for office appointments and consultations due to safety and other issues. Consequently, if you have already made an office appointment or consultation prior to March 18, 2020 to occur at a later time, this may need to be changed.

For anyone considering plastic surgery, we are now offering Virtual Consultations and Telemedicine through Skype. A great number of aesthetic or insurance-related issues can be evaluated via pictures and online video conferencing, making this an excellent way to find out more about particular procedures, determine candidacy for treatment, receive answers to questions and facilitate being able to move forward with care once the government lifts all restrictions.

In an abundance of caution, we are asking all current patients who are experiencing a fever, cough, chills, fatigue or any type of respiratory illness to please delay any upcoming appointments at our practice. We can talk with you by phone or email to establish a new date and time for the appointment.

We are all in this together. Our team urges everyone to follow the guidelines recommended by local health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which include frequent handwashing for a minimum of 20 seconds, social distancing, staying home if you are feeling sick, and contacting your healthcare provider if you feel you are experiencing symptoms.
