Im interested in a forehead lift…

Question: How long does a forehead lift take to perform?

Answer: That really depends on the method for the procedure and the experience and speed of the surgeon.  There are two major methods for forehead lifting:  open (coronal, pretrichial) and closed (endoscopic, limited incision).  The open method obviously takes more time to perform than the endoscopic but in experienced hands oftentimes not that much more time.  I personally no longer perform browlifts due to my belief that fat transfer to the brow works well enough to rejuvenate the brow.  However, an endoscopic browlift can oftentimes be perfomed in an hour or two, and an open approach would probably take about double that time.
