A forehead lift or “brow lift” is a procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes. The procedure corrects drooping brows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a person appear angry, sad or tired.
What Happens During a Brow Lift?
In a forehead lift, the muscles and tissues that cause the furrowing or drooping are removed or altered to smooth the forehead, raise the eyebrows and minimize frown lines. Dr. Reichner may use the conventional surgical method, in which the incision is hidden just at or behind the hairline; or it may be performed with the use of an endoscope, a viewing instrument that allows the procedure to be performed with minimal incisions. Both techniques yield similar results — smoother forehead skin and a more animated appearance.
Dr. Reichner, Words can’t express my sincere thank you.
You are truly an artist and I could not be happier with the results. Thank you.

Am I a Good Candidate?
A forehead lift is most commonly performed in the 40-60 age range to minimize the visible effects of aging. However, it can also help people of any age who have developed furrows or frown lines due to stress or muscle activity. Individuals with inherited conditions, such as a low, heavy brow or furrowed lines above the nose can achieve a more alert and refreshed look with this procedure.
Forehead lift is often performed in conjunction with a facelift to provide a smoother overall look to the face. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) may also be performed at the same time as a forehead lift, especially if a patient has significant skin overhang in the upper eyelids. Sometimes, patients who believe they need upper-eyelid surgery find that a forehead lift better meets their surgical goals.
The best candidates for a brow lift are in good health and have a positive disposition, as well as realistic expectations. To help avoid complications and a prolonged recovery process, patients will need to quit smoking before the procedure.
Patients can learn more about what a brow lift involves when they schedule a consultation with Dr. Reichner. You and Dr. Reichner will discuss your expectations, as well as your health and complete medical history. He will examine your face, and photographs may be taken. If you have any questions about the procedure, this would be the best time to ask them.
Brow Lift Recovery and Healing
Following a brow lift, patients are advised to avoid drinking alcohol for at least 48 hours. Patients must avoid vigorous activities such as strenuous exercise, sports, or heavy lifting for the next two weeks. However, gentle exercises such as light strolls are recommended.
