The skin on the forehead becomes loose over time due to age, stress, pollution, and environmental factors. A sagging forehead with loose skin and lots of lines, folds, and wrinkles can make you look very old, sad, or angry and can add many years to your face.

Lifting and removing the excess loose skin on the forehead can be done with the help of a forehead lift, also known as a brow lift. This procedure can take years off your face and make you look young and radiant.

A forehead lift is a good idea if you don’t want to go in for a full-on facelift and change too much about your face but instead want to just focus on the forehead and brow.


A forehead lift is a kind of plastic surgery that lifts the forehead and brow to eliminate wrinkles and raise sagging eyebrows. It helps to trim excess tissue from the forehead, removing lines, folds, and wrinkles.

This procedure can tighten the tissue on the forehead to make it look firmer and smoother. It can help correct drooping skin over the eyebrows and eyes and make the person look overall more attractive.

There are many different types of forehead lift techniques that can be performed, and your plastic surgeon will decide which is the best technique for you depending upon your aesthetic needs and requirements. One option that we offer is the coronal forehead lift.


The coronal forehead lift is also known as the traditional, classic, or open forehead lift. It can help you achieve amazing results and can help in the revival and rejuvenation of the forehead. It addresses sagging of the eyebrows, glabellar ptosis (drooping), and the problem of frontoglabellar rhytids (wrinkles).

The coronal forehead lift technique is a better choice than less invasive options for patients who have a lot of skin laxity and sagging in the forehead region. This option is the number-one choice for forehead lifts in female patients as well as many male patients.

First, the patient receives either local anesthesia with intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. These options are used to help avoid any sort of pain or discomfort for the patient during the surgery.

For the coronal forehead lift technique, the incision is made in or along the full hairline and ends at both temples. The exact position of the incision in relation to the hairline is determined by several factors. It can be made directly at it to avoid any pushing back of the hairline; this is best for patients who are already experiencing a receding hairline.

After the incision has been made, the excess tissue is removed from the forehead, making the area tight, smooth, and youthful. To end the procedure, the incision is closed using surgical sutures.
