Forehead lift is performed to reduce horizontal forehead lines or lift the eyebrows. Sometimes, it is a means of lifting the upper lids as well. The procedure is most often performed from within the hairline, sometimes at the very border of the hairline.
Dr. Imber’s Tips!
I perform 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, MD
The procedure has in my practice, been largely been supplanted by Botox, which does a better job of smoothing out forehead lines. I usually reserve the procedure for lifting the eyebrows back to their youthful position.

Forehead Lift FAQ’s
What is a Forehead Lift?
A Forehead Lift is performed to reduce horizontal forehead lines or lift the eyebrows. Sometimes, it is a means of lifting the upper lids as well. The procedure is most often performed from within the hairline, sometimes at the very border of the hairline.
Who is the right candidate for a Forehead Lift?
I usually reserve the procedure for lifting the eyebrows back to their youthful position. If you have just horizontal forehead lines, Botox is a better option to smooth out the wrinkles.
What type of anesthesia will I receive?
Sedation with local anesthesia.
How long will recovery take?
Recovery varies for each patient and our staff will assess progress during your post-operative appointment.
Are there any non-invasive alternatives?
Botox is an amazing option to improve forehead lines quickly and I rarely perform Forehead lifts to just correct wrinkles.
Why do I need a board certified plastic surgeon?
A board certified plastic surgeon holds the highest levels of education and training needed to deliver the best results. This qualification is not easy to achieve, so by using a board-certified plastic surgeon, you also know they meet the standards of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Will there be any scarring?
Yes, there is scarring a fine line within the hair.
How much does a Forehead Lift cost?
Any question you have regarding procedure costs can be discussed during your consultation at Dr. Imber’s office.
He is very thorough, meticulous, detail oriented and you cannot negotiate services or anything with him. It’s his way or the highway. I had a lot of work done years ago long before plastic surgery was so common. My daughter went to him last year for lipo and he is exactly as thorough and precise as he was then. If you are a Botox junkie looking for quick fixes on the cheap, he probably won’t be right for you. His work is very subtle, understated, natural and undetectable.
