If you are one of many who wish to appear more alert, perky and even younger, I am pleased to relate new advances in Forehead lifts! Wrinkles, droopy brows and sagging skin usually become more concerning as people age, but even some pre-to-middle aged women and men experience these problems. A brow lift once meant getting slit from ear to ear across the top of your head, but not anymore. For example. the endoscopic brow lift—requires only a few small incisions and enjoys a shorter recovery time. In fact, our patients are benefiting from several advances which I customize to individual needs.
The endoscopic forehead lift is a minimally invasive technique; less invasive than the traditional forehead lift. This technique involves the use of an endoscope inserted through small incisions located behind the hairline. This variation improves wrinkles on the forehead and brow. My approach will lift the brows and may decrease the appearance of excess skin and fat of the upper eyelids. In addition, the muscles causing “11’s” found between the eyebrows, above the bridge of the nose can be permanently weakened eliminating the unwanted wrinkles and angry look.
The direct forehead lift serves to improve deep wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyebrows through inconspicuous incisions at the junction of the hairline and forehead or within and behind the hairline. In some cases, an incision is made in a forehead crease. My direct forehead lift is designed to improve eye brow asymmetry, misshapen brows and saggy puffy upper eyelids.
The temporal forehead lift is a less invasive method to modify the outer areas of the eyebrow by selectively addressing the outside of the eyebrow. My temporal forehead lift offers an alternative to refine the delicate areas of the upper face.
I wish to point out that some individuals interested in the forehead lift may be good candidates for eyelid enhancement surgery, a facelift, facial injectables, micro needling, and laser, or radio frequency (RF), forehead skin resurfacing for existing wrinkles.
The best way to determine exactly what you require in terms of facial rejuvenation is to visit us for a consultation. I spend a good deal of time with my patients during consultations in order to answer each and every question, as well as provide valuable information.
Note: If you mention this blog when contacting our office, your consultation will be free of charge!
