Have the emotions of years gone by left lines on your forehead? Do your eyebrows no longer have that youthful arch? The forehead and eyebrows tend to show the signs of aging quickly, which can make you look older than you may feel. To refresh the brow area, Dr. Harry Salinas at HMS Plastic Surgery offers forehead/brow lift surgery at our plastic surgery center in Miami, FL.
The horizontal lines on the forehead and glabellar (11s) lines between the brows are some of the most common wrinkles on the upper face. While Botox® injections are known to help smooth these lines, the result is temporary, and it does not address the descending eyebrows. A brow lift procedure is used to remove excess skin and lift the forehead skin to a more youthful position. This can smooth worry and frown lines and bring the eyebrows back up into the desired arch.
Traditional brow lift surgery required an incision all the way across the crown of the head, which can leave a more noticeable scar. A more discreet option is an endoscopic brow lift that hides small incisions above the hairline. Dr. Harry Salinas offers this minimally invasive procedure to rejuvenate the brow while using smaller incisions for improved appearance and recovery.
Endoscopic Brow Lift Surgery
During an endoscopic brow lift, the forehead and scalp are numbed, and small incisions are created above the hairline in the scalp. Endoscopic instruments are used to access the skin and tissue on the forehead, removing excess skin while lifting, tightening and smoothing the brow. The elevation of the tissue can bring the eyebrows up, opening the appearance of the eyes, while minimizing the lines on the forehead.
There are various methods that can be used to rejuvenate the forehead. For some patients, the traditional brow lift may be a better option for extensive skin removal, but many patients can achieve the desired results with the endoscopic option.
A forehead lift can give you a more rested, youthful appearance while opening the eyes and arching the eyebrows. To learn more about endoscopic brow lift surgery, contact us at HMS Plastic Surgery. Call our Fort Lauderdale/Miami, FL, center to schedule your brow lift consultation with Dr. Salinas.
