Our board-certified plastic surgeons have more than 50 years of combined experience in all facets of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. As a qualified and compassionate team, they share a goal of providing a safe and rewarding plastic surgery experience while creating exceptional results worthy of your trust.
With a forehead lift, the patient leaves the recovery area with the head wrapped in dressings, which are usually removed on the first or second day after surgery. Initial discomfort is usually controlled with oral medication.
Sutures or staples are removed within 5 to 7 days. Most swelling and bruising are gone within 7 to 10 days but may last for several weeks. Camouflage makeup is available to temporarily conceal any redness or bruising once the sutures have been removed.

If a brow lift or forehead lift is being done to improve the field of vision, insurance may cover the surgery. Otherwise, the surgeries are considered cosmetic procedures and the patient is responsible for payment.
While we no longer participate with insurance, we do offer a self-pay option to give patients the opportunity to receive insurance benefits for medically necessary procedures. With the self-pay option, patients have their procedure performed in the hospital by our physicians. Patients pay upfront for physician fees and are responsible for initiating the reimbursement request with their insurance company. If you have questions or would like to explore this option, please call us at (734) 712-2323.
At Center for Plastic Surgery Ann Arbor, we look forward to helping you achieve your aesthetic goals. Please request your consultation with our easy-to-use online form or call our office at (734) 712-2323 to schedule your visit.
