The effects of aging are unavoidable and very often, the area around the forehead and brow shows the initial signs of aging. The forehead or brow lift is a surgical treatment to revamp a more youthful look to your eyebrows. With the aging process, a loss of skin and the effects of gravity cause the eyebrows to droop.
Endoscopic Forehead Lift
This is a very popular treatment as it leaves no visible scars and requires 3-5 small incisions hidden in the hair. This treatment can lift everything from the eyebrows to the hairline. It smooths and tightens the whole forehead while lifting the eyebrow area. Asymmetry and eyebrow shape can be taken care of with this type of lift. There will be some swelling and bruising following the treatment. Usually, patients are quite comfortable getting back to their day-to-day activities in about 2-4 weeks.
