Forehead Lift (Browlift)
Forehead Lift (Browlift) Procedure
Minimizes fore­head creases, drooping eyebrows, hooding over eyes, furrowed forehead and frown lines by remov­ing excess tissue, altering muscles and tightening the forehead skin. May be done using the traditional tech­nique, with an incision across the top of the head just behind the hairline; or with the use of an endo­scope, which requires 3 to 5 short incisions. Most often done on people over 40.

Usually outpatient.
Temporary swelling, numbness, bruising.
Back to work: 7 to 10 days, usually sooner for endoscopic forehead lift.
More strenuous activity: several weeks.
Full recovery from bruising: 2 to 3 weeks.
Limit sun expo­sure for several months.
Duration of Results
Usually 5 to 10 years.
