Botox, Facelifts, Brow & Forehead Lifts

In Salt Lake City, Dr. J. Dayne Petersen performs brow and forehead lifts to raise eyebrows and reduce ridges and furrows on the forehead with Botox injections and other facelift procedures. These procedures create a smoother, more youthful appearance and can be performed in conjunction with other surgeries.

During a brow lift, an incision is generally made across the top of the head from the front of one ear to the front of the other ear. The forehead and brows are elevated and excess skin is removed. Newer techniques now allow us to perform forehead lifting through small incisions in the scalp by using an endoscope and specialized instruments. This minimizes scarring and accelerates the healing process.

Post-Operative Information

Antibiotics may be prescribed for several days following surgery. Sutures are generally removed within one week. Swelling and some bruising may occur and should subside within a few weeks. Dr. Petersen will prescribe ice compresses and eye exercises to reduce swelling and regain mobility. Women will be allowed to use eye cosmetics up to two weeks after surgery. You can proceed with your normal daily activities within 1-2 weeks. A final evaluation may occur within several months of the initial surgical procedure.


Your insurance company may pay for part or all of the cost of surgery if the procedure is performed as a result of visual impairment. Because every insurance carrier is different, we recommend checking with your own insurance company to determine the level of coverage.
