Forehead Lift Surgery

During forehead lift surgery, Dr. Schulman well hidden incisions will be made in a variety of locations depending on the specific technique chosen. In the endoscopic technique, a small camera will be inserted through small incisions behind the hairline to weaken forehead muscles. He then will lift the eyebrow and forehead and secure it into this youthful position.  In the coronal approach, he will treat the forehead similarly without the use of the endoscope. This technique allows for removal of significant excess skin.  If a hairline incision is used, Dr. Schulman has the added ability to reduce the appearance of a long forehead and lower a receding hairline.

During recovery, Dr. Schulman will see you to guide you through the process. Most people return to work within a week. The results are fully apparent when swelling subsides and the improvement will commonly last upwards of ten to fifteen years.

The improvement in the appearance of the forehead and eyebrows results in a more youthful appearance to the entire face.  You will look younger and more rested.
