If you believe your forehead is preventing you from looking your best, a forehead lift (or brow lift) may offer you the refreshed look you seek.
A forehead lift can diminish horizontal creases across the forehead, correct sagging or low-positioned eyebrows, and erase angry-looking frown lines for a more relaxed look.

Frequently Asked Questions
A personal consultation with your surgeon is the first step for any patient considering cosmetic surgery. Dr McHugh will assess your physical and emotional health, discuss your aesthetic goals, and address any questions or concerns you may have.
Issues you should be prepared to discuss during consultation with Dr McHugh include:
– All medical conditions, both past and present
– Current medications, including nutritional supplements and herbal remedies
– Past surgeries
– Other treatments you have received
Your physical evaluation with Dr McHugh will include an assessment of your bone structure and underlying facial tissues as well as your skin thickness, elasticity and texture. He will also need to evaluate your forehead contour, the muscle activity in the area, and the brow position, as well as the amount of redundant eyelid skin and the position of your hairline.
For a more complete rejuvenation, Dr McHugh may discuss additional procedures that can be performed along with brow lift surgery. Patients frequently combine a brow lift with:
– Eyelid surgery to address upper eyelid droop or bags beneath the eyes
– Face lift to remove excess skin and tighten facial muscles
– Skin treatments such as chemical peels to improve skin tone and minimize fine wrinkles
It is important to follow Dr McHugh’s instructions when preparing for surgery to ensure the best possible results. Those instructions may include:
– Refraining from smoking for several weeks before and after surgery
– Avoiding certain medications
– Arranging for help following surgery, such as a ride home and in-home care for the first 24 hours
– Growing your hair to cover your incisions as they heal
