A forehead lift or brow lift can smooth the brow, raise the upper eyelids, and minimize the frown lines that come with aging. It also improves any crow’s feet that are around the outer aspects of the eyes. The forehead lift is the most effective means of eliminating frown lines and wrinkles of the upper face. Both women and men can benefit from the rejuvenating effects of brow lift surgery.
A smooth forehead raises the eyebrows and conveys a more youthful and alert you. The face you see in the mirror should reflect the vitality you feel inside. If you are disturbed by the aging “stranger in the mirror,” it may be time for a forehead lift and complementary procedures.
The forehead lift surgery can be done with virtually no visible scarring. Discreet incisions are placed in the scalp above or at the hairline. Scars are generally minimal and camouflaged in the hair.
Endoscopic Forehead Lift
The new endoscopic forehead lift is one of Dr Apesos’ favorite procedures. Small incisions are made in the scalp, just above the hairline. A surgical endoscope (small video camera) is used to raise the forehead tissue. The endoscope allows for complete visualization on the television monitors through the tiny incisions. After the lifting, the forehead is secured with permanent sutures and absorbable screws. This allows increased versatility for different hair types while not altering the hairline. The endoscopic procedure leaves minimal scarring.
A detailed discussion with Dr. Apesos and reviewing his photographic album of results is a good idea before undertaking this procedure. Dr. Apesos has the training and experience to advise on forehead lift surgery and other complementary procedures, such as facelift or eye lift.
