If you need an endoscopic forehead lift, find an experienced facial plastic surgeon to perform it.
If it seems like you look older and more serious than you used to, you may want to find out if you need an endoscopic forehead lift. A forehead lift, more often called a brow lift, is a surgical operation that moves the skin back where it was when you were younger, lifting it up and to each side. In order to do this, the surgeon inserts an endoscope (a surgeon’s tool with a long tube and a tiny light and a camera or a lens at the end) into an incision in the skin of the forehead to study the attachments of skin and muscle and develop a plan for action. It takes an experienced facial plastic surgeon to do this well.
Sometimes everything you need to do can be done using BOTOX. This is more likely to be the case if the wrinkles are dynamic wrinkles — formed by the action of your brow muscles, rather than the sagging of the skin. BOTOX limits the ability of these muscles to act, but it can’t do anything about sagging skin. Small wrinkles can be dealt with using hyaluronic acid fillers, but bigger ones may need an endoscopic forehead lift.
