He has dedicated his career to helping his patients look as good as they feel, and always strives for the most natural results.

Forehead Lift

A forehead lift lifts the brows, rejuvenating the area and tightening the skin in the forehead and around the upper eyes. Prior to Botox, a forehead lift was one of the only ways to improve forehead wrinkles. Now that Botox effectively improves fine lines and wrinkles, forehead lifts are performed less frequently. 

Forehead Lift Goals

A forehead lift can significantly help improve deep forehead wrinkles and rejuvenate the entire area. By lifting the brows, the facial structure appeals more youthful.

Forehead Lift Candidates

If you have deep set forehead wrinkles you may be a candidate for a foreHead lift. During your consultation with Dr. Imber, he will assess the area to determine if results can be achieved using Botox or a forehead lift.

Words From Dr Imber!

“I perform a forehead lift only to elevate or equalize the height of the eyebrows. I do not think it is as effective as treating horizontal lines as Botox.”

– Gerald Imber, M.D.


What Type Of Anesthesia Will I Receive?

Sedation with local anesthesia.

Are There Any Non-Invasive Alternatives?

Botox is an amazing option to improve forehead lines quickly and I rarely perform forehead lifts to correct just wrinkles.

Will There Be Any Scarring?

Yes, there is scarring of a fine line within the hair.

How Much Does A Forehead Lift Cost?

Any questions you have regarding procedure costs can be discussed during your consultation at Dr. Imber’s office.
