Forehead Lift

New York NY Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon

The human face gives away much more information about a person than many people realize. People will know (or assume) that you are tired if your eyebrows sag, will think you unhappy if your furrow your brows, will often think you older than you actually are by the lines across your forehead. You could be in your mid-thirties and the happiest person on earth, yet your face says something different.

A youthful appearance is generally associated with happiness and peace. Children and young people are often admired for their sense of wonder and awe about life. And then life happens to them – stress of paying bills, responsibilities of life, family demands, and other things weigh people down. While this is the natural rhythm of life, it does not have to write itself all over your face.

Over time, age and gravity cause the eyebrows to descend and the brow arch to become less defined. These changes often give a person’s face a tired, sad, or even perpetually mad appearance. A forehead lift (often referred to as a brow lift) is designed to elevate the brow and restore the natural contour of the eyebrow so that the restful and youthful appearance is reestablished to the face.

A brow lift is a procedure that works to reposition the sagging tissues and muscles beneath the forehead in order to restore a youthful appearance and position. There are different techniques used on a per-patient basis. Some brow lift techniques remove skin tissues while others simply “lift” the brow. Dr. Maurice Khosh of Manhattan, New York, meets with patients individually in a thorough consultation to listen to their concerns and to examine the upper face and brow. He will help patients determine the best approach for a forehead lift to specifically address their concerns and the framework of the individual face. Recovery time will depend upon the technique used, but generally requires 1-2 weeks of complete down time. After this time, patients are generally ready to return to work and normal activity after 10-14 days.

A forehead lift procedure requires the expertise of a gifted surgeon. While patients want to regain a youthful appearance, they do not want to end up with a permanent “deer in the headlights” look. Do not settle for a cosmetic surgeon who is close by or convenient. Choose a renowned and respected surgeon. Dr. Maurice Khosh utilizes artistry and precision in all cosmetic procedures.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 174 reviews

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Joann M.
After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
