All surgeries carry risk and every incision leaves a scar. With endoscopic surgery, we can minimise the amount of scarring*. An endoscopic forehead lift is when we use a video camera and special micro-instruments. The surgeon manipulates them in tandem through three or more small incisions. The endoscope helps guide the surgeon. Allowing him to remove the muscles that produce frown lines and repositions the eyebrows at a higher level.
For traditional forehead lift. The surgeon performs a coronal incision, starting at ear level, running across the top of forehead and down to the other ear. The surgeon will usually make the incision behind the hairline.
In some cases, a combination of endoscopic and traditional techniques may be used.
