Forehead Lift

The most common sign of aging in the forehead is that of eyebrow descent. The outer 1/3 to ½ of the eyebrow is most commonly affected.

Procedure
Although several techniques, including the coronal (long incision) approach and the endoscopic approach have been described, I currently favor the limited incision approach. This approach allows stable elevation of the outer 1/3 to ½ of the eyebrow with no visible scarring providing a natural and youthful appearing brow. Forehead wrinkles also usually improve after the lift.

Operative Time
1 to 1 1/2 hour

Anesthesia
Usually local with IV sedation, General optional.

Risks
Although extremely rare, there have been reports of nerve injury resulting in decreased sensation or movement of the brow and slight hair loss.

Recovery
Generally 3 to 7 days for acceptable appearance at social distances.
