Forehead Lift or Brow Ridge Contouring

A forehead lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that involves lifting the skin in the forehead and possibly removing some of the tissue and muscle underneath in order to improve the overall appearance of the face and give a more youthful appearance. This procedure helps correct drooping eyebrows, to remove facial lines or to tighten loose skin.


About four incisions behind the patient's hairline less than one inch long is made, which is large enough for the surgeon to insert an endoscope. This allows the surgeon to view and determine tissues and muscles that need to be removed to lift the brows. Once the tissues and muscles are removed, the incisions are closed in a horizontal fashion in order to reduce scarring and for improved results.

The brow lift procedure generally takes one to two hours to complete. Most patients remain in the hospital for a night after the procedure is complete.

Although a brow lift procedure can provide very pleasing results, there are some potential risks associated with the procedure. Some of the side effects that are associated with any type of surgical procedure include bleeding, infection and swelling.


Certain risks that are specifically associated with the brow lift include:

  • Alteration of the hairline may be necessary to conceal the scars
  • An asymmetrical facial appearance that may require a corrective surgery.
  • Altered facial expressions because of the repositioning of the eyebrows and forehead
  • Inability to close the eyes completely (Lagophthalamos)
  • Temporary or permanent loss of hair
  • Temporary or permanent loss of sensation on the forehead
  • Numbness in the area where the operation was performed, which should subside within a few weeks following the procedure.
