What is a surgical forehead lift?
A surgical forehead lift is a cosmetic procedure used to improve the appearance of the forehead by raising and tightening the skin. This can help reduce wrinkles and creases in the forehead, as well as make the face appear more youthful. The surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, and typically takes around two hours to complete.
Who is a good candidate for the forehead lift procedure?
Adult men and women with significant folds on the forehead and sagging brows may find themselves to be the ideal candidate for this procedure. Patients will talk about their medical history and their goals with our doctor to determine if they are a good fit for a forehead lift or a better candidate for other procedure offered.

Recovery time varies, but most people are able to return to work within a week. During your initial consultation and planning appointment, Dr. Wayne Larrabee will provide more in-depth information about what to expect and how to care for yourself with post-operative recommendations.
