eyebrow lift

In the past, most patients undergoing this type of procedure would undergo an “open” brow lift where long incisions across the scalp or at the hairline would be necessary. Nowadays, the vast majority of patients can be treated using endoscopic (keyhole) techniques where small incisions are made in the scalp above the hairline and special surgical telescopes are used to carry out the procedure, keeping the scars very well hidden inside the hair. This is sometimes called an "endobrow".

In men with receding hairlines or a family tendency to this, the procedure may not be suitable since the scars may become visible in areas where the hair is lost. Endoscopic brow lifting is frequently combined with other rejuvenating procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelids) and facelifting though it can be performed alone.The effects of aging are inevitable, and, often, the brow and forehead area show the first signs. The skin begins to lose its elasticity. Sun, wind, and the pull of gravity all affect the face, resulting in frown lines, wrinkling across the forehead, and an increasing heaviness of the eyebrows. Even people in their thirties may have faces that look older than their years. Others may mistake your appearance as tired, angry, or sad when this is not how you actually feel. As a result, many people have opted for a procedure known as the forehead lift. Based on variations in how men and women age and on new advances in medical technology, different methods are used to perform this procedure
