What is a forehead lift?

A forehead lift is a surgical procedure that lifts and smoothes a lined, sagging brow. A forehead lift is similar to a brow lift, but while a brow lift also addresses sagging eyebrows, a forehead lift primarily focuses on smoothing the forehead and achieving a youthful contour.

Benefits of a forehead lift

There are many benefits to a forehead lift because it takes years off of the appearance. Benefits include the following:

  • Smoothed frown lines
  • Freshens the appearances, taking away the tired lines
  • Rejuvenates the upper face
  • Alleviates tension in the forehead muscles
  • Minimal side effects
  • Short recovery period
  • Achieves long-lasting results
  • Results look natural and refined

Who is a candidate for a forehead lift?

Candidates for a forehead lift in Philadelphia would like to smooth a lined or furrowed brow. Ideal candidates should meet the following criteria:

  • Are in good physical health
  • Have no serious medical conditions
  • Do not smoke
  • Are not taking blood-thinning medications or can stop taking these before surgery
  • Have realistic goals for the results of their forehead lift procedure

What happens during a forehead lift?

A forehead lift is generally performed with local anesthesia. Once this takes effect, Dr. Pontell will make precise incisions around the forehead to ensure any scarring is nearly invisible. These incisions are used to gently release and elevate the brow tissues. Dr. Pontell will then lift the skin and settle it into a more youthful, firm contour. Once the skin and tissue are properly repositioned, the new shape is anchored in place with sutures or held firmly in place with small, absorbable tacks.


Expect surgical bruising and swelling that will last for up to two weeks. Elevate your head with pillows, stay hydrated and allow yourself to rest and heal.

Most patients are comfortable returning to work within a few days after their procedure. Avoid exercise or strenuous activity for at least 3-4 weeks.
