Objectives: Upon completion of this course participants should be able to plan and perform a forehead lift.
Description: This course will be a practical, clinically oriented, step-by-step guide to planning and performing a forehead lift. (Please note: The course will focus on forehead lift surgery only. Separate courses on facelift, neck lift and facial fat grafting are offered and interested learners are encouraged to enroll in them.)

  • Discuss pre-operative analysis of the individual patient and the formulation of an appropriate surgical plan for neck lift surgery.
  • Discuss planning of incisions to minimize scars, hairline displacement and secondary deformities.
  • Discuss forehead lift techniques for bald men or men with shaved heads
  • Review clinically relevant anatomy important to surgical technique and avoiding complications
  • Discuss sequencing forehead lift with other procedures
  • Review anesthesia considerations if forehead lift surgery
  • Discuss patient safety issues in forehead lift surgery
  • Discuss peri-operative care of the forehead lift patient
