The benefits of an endoscopic brow lift

The endoscopic browlift has many benefits

If your face is starting to show its age or you have wrinkles or a sagging brow, Dr. M. Sean Freeman, Charlotte’s top facial plastic surgeon can perform an endoscopic browlift to help improve your appearance.   The endoscopic browlift is a procedure perfected by Dr. Freeman and which does not leave you with that look of surprise which can happen with a classic brow lift.  Most plastic surgeons are trained to perform the classic browlift where they make an ear-to-ear incision and then pull the brow up and back.  This procedure can often result in the patient looking artificially surprised.  The classic browlift also requires more healing time than the endoscopic browlift and may leave more scarring.

When you are considering a browlift, it is a good idea to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Freeman at his Charlotte NC clinic, The Center for Facial and Plastic Laser Surgery.  During your consultation appointment, Dr. Freeman will evaluate your skin and facial structure and recommend the right procedure for you.  Dr. Freeman will also discuss your goals for this procedure and your medical history.   Dr. Freeman may recommend additional procedures, depending upon your situation.  These may include an eyelid lift or SOOF lift blepharoplasty.  Dr. Freeman may also suggest certain lifestyle changes as your prepare for your browlift.  This is especially true if you smoke.
