Forehead Lift in Dubai

The skin on your forehead is more likely to sag before the aging process affects any other body area. 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 popular cosmetic treatment that is used to fix saggy skin on the forehead.

Before and After Results

A forehead lift in Dubai results in a smooth forehead and lifted eyebrows which are free from any wrinkles or sagging skin. The results are permanent. Unfortunately, no guarantee is given as the results may vary from person to person.

Forehead Lift Goals

A forehead lift surgery aims to;

  • Eliminate the sagging skin from brows and forehead.
  • Remove the lines and wrinkles.
  • Improve the appearance of eyelids, eyebrows and forehead.

Forehead Lift Candidates

You can be an ideal candidate for a forehead lift in Dubai if;

  • You have sagging skin on the forehead.
  • Lines and wrinkles appear on your forehead.
  • There is excess fat on eyebrows which makes them appear droopy.
  • You are in good physical health.
  • You have realistic expectations from the surgery.

Initial Consultation

You can discuss all your concerns regarding this surgery with your plastic surgeon in an initial consultation. The treatment plan will be made by your surgeon after he/she examines your condition physically and understands your requirements regarding the treatment.

Pre-Op Preparation

Common pre-op instructions include;

  • Avoid using blood-thinning medications.
  • Follow prescribed medications.

Forehead Lift Procedure

  • The procedure is done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. Several short incisions are placed in the hairline. The operation is done using an endoscope (a narrow hollow instrument with a fiber optic light source and camera).
  • The forehead skin is lifted and re-positioned. The muscles that cause frown lines are weakened.
  • The re-positioned muscle and skin are then anchored to the skull bone, either with a screw or via a tunnel in the bone itself.
  • The small incisions in the skin are then closed.

Usually,  no dressing required.  Some swelling is expected in the forehead region and around the eyes, which usually subsides in about three to four days.

Forehead Lift Recovery

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

  • You will feel pain and discomfort in the initial days after the surgery which can be reduced with the pain medications.
  • Bandages will be applied to the treatment area which will be removed after two or three days.
  • Your forehead might be slightly swollen.
  • 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.
  • Try to keep your head elevated because it helps in controlling swelling.
  • You can apply ice packs to minimize the swelling.
  • Take medications prescribed by your surgeon regularly.
  • Don’t lift heavy objects or perform any vigorous tasks for a week or two.


You will be able to observe results right after getting the procedure. You will feel more confident because of the enhanced appearance obtained through the forehead lift. Also, you have to 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.
