Forehead Lift in Dubai

The skin on your forehead is often among the first areas to show signs of aging. This sagging skin causes the appearance of lines and wrinkles which give an overall drooping appearance to the face. A forehead lift surgery in Dubai is a cosmetic procedure aimed at correcting sagging forehead skin and repositioning the eyebrows.

Forehead Lift Goals

A forehead lift surgery aims to;

  • Eliminate sagging skin from the brows and forehead.
  • Reduce the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles on the forehead, contributing to a more youthful look.
  • Enhance the appearance of the eyelids, eyebrows, and forehead by reducing sagging and wrinkles.

Forehead Lift Candidates

You can be an ideal candidate for a forehead lift if

  • You have sagging skin on the forehead.
  • Lines and wrinkles appear on your forehead.
  • There is excess skin or drooping of the eyebrows that may make them appear droopy.
  • You should be in overall good health with no underlying conditions that could impair healing or increase surgery risks.
  • You should have a clear understanding of what the surgery can and cannot achieve and maintain realistic expectations about the outcomes.

Initial Consultation

Discuss all your concerns and expectations about the surgery during the initial consultation with your plastic surgeon. The treatment plan will be created by your surgeon after a physical examination and understanding of your treatment goals.

Pre-Op Preparation

Common pre-op instructions include;

  • Avoid using blood-thinning medications without discussing with your surgeon, as some may need to be continued for medical reasons.
  • Continue taking any medications as prescribed by your doctor, and discuss any supplements or over-the-counter drugs you use.

Forehead Lift Procedure

  • The procedure is done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. Several short incisions are typically made within the hairline to minimize visible scarring. The operation is often performed using an endoscope, a tool that allows for a minimally invasive approach with a camera to guide the surgery.
  • The surgeon carefully lifts and repositions the forehead skin to achieve a more youthful contour and reduce sagging. Specific muscles causing frown lines may be altered or weakened to smooth out wrinkles.
  • The repositioned muscle and skin are then secured, often to the underlying bone structures, to maintain the lift.
  • The incisions are carefully closed with sutures, which may be removed after a certain period or may dissolve on their own, depending on the type used.

Usually,  no dressing required. Some swelling is expected in the forehead region and around the eyes, which typically begins to subside within a week, but individual recovery times may vary.

Forehead Lift Recovery

The recovery process may differ for every patient depending on their body’s healing capabilities.

  • You may experience pain and discomfort in the initial days after the surgery, which can be alleviated with pain medications.
  • Bandages will be applied to the treatment area which will be removed after two or three days.
  • Expect noticeable swelling and some bruising around the forehead and eyes, which is a normal part of the healing process.
  • You will be required to take rest for more than a week.

Post-Op Care

Your plastic surgeon will make a list of instructions that you must follow after the forehead lift surgery is completed.

  • Take good rest for 2 to 3 days.
  • Keep your head elevated, especially when sleeping, for the first few days to help reduce swelling.
  • You can apply ice packs to minimize the swelling.
  • Take all medications as prescribed by your surgeon, including pain relievers and any antibiotics, to manage discomfort and prevent infection.
  • Avoid lifting heavy objects or performing vigorous tasks for the specified period as advised by your surgeon.


While some results may be immediately noticeable, the full effects are typically seen once swelling and bruising subside. You will feel more confident because of the enhanced appearance obtained through the forehead lift. Additionally, you must follow preventive measures if you would like to maintain the results. Keep your skin safe from direct sun exposure and adopt a healthy lifestyle to look good and more confident.
