Forehead Lift

As we age, the forehead is often one of the first areas of the face to develop fine lines and wrinkles. Over time, these conditions tend to worsen. The eyebrows begin to sag, creating a tired and sometimes angry expression. These changes to the forehead can make individuals look older and more agitated than they truly are. To restore a rested and pleasing appearance to the upper face, men and women may decide to undergo a forehead lift, also known as a brow lift. This procedure involves lifting the eyebrows to a more youthful position and smoothing out wrinkles in the forehead area. Dr. George Alexander, M.D., F.A.C.S., offers forehead lift surgery to give his patients a rejuvenated and welcoming facial aesthetic that lasts for many years.

Forehead Lift Journey

  • Consultation

    During your initial consultation, Dr. Alexander will listen to your concerns, evaluate your condition, and then create the most appropriate surgical plan that fulfills your needs. You will be given an accurate cost estimate as well as detailed preparation and aftercare instructions tailored to your custom procedure.

  • Procedure

    Forehead lift surgery is performed in the safety of a fully accredited surgical center and under the care of a board-certified anesthesiologist. General anesthesia is administered to ensure patient comfort and maximize safety throughout the procedure, the steps of which are as follows:

    • An inconspicuous incision is created within the hair across the top of the head.
    • The eyebrows are placed in a more youthful position.
    • Dr. Alexander weakens the frown muscle and removes excess skin from the hairline area.
    • The incisions are closed with surgical clips.
  • Combinations

    For comprehensive facial rejuvenation and to create more facial harmony, brow lift surgery can be performed in conjunction with any of the following procedures:



Recovery after forehead lift surgery usually takes one week. Patients should rest at home during this time and follow all of Dr. Alexander’s aftercare instructions for the best results possible. Avoiding strenuous activity and exercise for at least four weeks after surgery ensures optimal healing and minimal risk of complications.


Any surgery results in scarring, but Dr. Alexander is meticulous and places all forehead lift incisions carefully to minimize the chance of developing noticeable scars. Any scarring is likely to fade over time.


Dr. Alexander possesses the skill, certifications, and extensive experience necessary to provide you with quality facial rejuvenation results. His highly trained staff will develop a price estimate for your procedure during your forehead lift consultation. The cost of forehead lift surgery depends on the techniques used, anesthesia fees, and the extent of correction required.


Long-lasting pain medication is administered during surgery to reduce postoperative discomfort. Any residual discomfort can be managed with prescription medication as recommended by Dr. Alexander. Patients typically experience tightness in the forehead area, but this side effect should subside within a couple of weeks.
