If you want to smooth away a tense, angry, or furrowed brow, consider a forehead lift, in which the forehead skin and brows are lifted up. Forehead-lifts, also known as brow-lifts, are often paired with eyelid surgery to minimize wrinkles and to lift sagging skin in the upper face. A survey finds that most patients who underwent a brow or forehead lift said they'd definitely or probably undergo the surgery again when asked about it years later. Most also said they'd recommend it to others (1).

The best patients for a forehead lift are those who have a heavy low set brow, with over-developed forehead muscles and a tense and angry look. The endoscopic forehead lift is a suitable approach for treating the upper third of the face with hidden short scars in the hair-bearing scalp. (2).
A forehead lift can be combined with other procedures such as a facelift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping.
A Forehead Lift is usually done on an outpatient basis, without an overnight stay. It usually requires a few days to a week off from work.
Although heavy scarring, hair loss, and numbness of the forward portion of the scalp were common side effects in the past, modern endoscopic procedures have dramatically reduced the likelihood of each. Complication rates are now lower than 3 percent for forehead lifts.
