Tell me about the small incision NON- endoscopic forehead lift that can frequently be done with same incisions as with endoscope but at a reduced cost?

Tell me about the small incision NON- endoscopic forehead lift that can frequently be done with same incisions as with endoscope but at a reduced cost?

Brow lift options: The lift you mention is often referred to as limited-incision foreheadplasty. It is essentially the same as an endoscopic lift but visualization is not done with the small camera. In my practice there is no difference in price if the endoscope is used. You should seek a surgeon who is experienced and trained in brow lift surgery and who you feel comfortable with. ...Read more

One can still frown,: One can still frown after healing for several weeks and healing process proceeds. However there are two types of browlift., open and closed.

I had a forehead lift out of the country and it turned out horrible. Who in us can fix it?

Med tourism fails: I would suggest that you call around. To the best of my knowledge, no one specializes in this and due to difficulty with obtaining your medical records as well as the possible use of non-fda approved technologies, devices or medications, it may be difficult to achieve a correction of your problem. Surgeons may also be somewhat reluctant to take on a more risky case due to liability concerns. ...Read more

What are the side effects of a forehead lift?

What are the side effects of a forehead lift?

More youthful look!: Getting the brows out of the eye socket reduces eyelid hooding and makes a more alert, youthful look, but will raise the hairline a bit, unless a hairline incision is used. But this leaves a scar near the front of the lowered hairline rather than the hidden scar in the hair for the type that raises the brow and hairline. Numbness resolves, paralysis is rare, and bad scar or hair loss is uncommon ...Read more

Is a brow lift the same thing as a forehead lift? I always thought they were the same, because the descriptions i've read have been similar for both. Recently i saw a description for a brow lift that seemed to be lifting only the brow area, not the whole

Depending : Depending on where the incisions are placed, scars may be more or less visible, and yield access and have effects upon different areas. For instance, a direct brow lift, either performed at the upper eyebrow hairline or within the supratarsal crease, essentially repositions just the brow to a higher level and takes up some of the excessive skin redundancy of the upper eyelid.This approach is often used in cases of facial paralysis as part of a treatment plan to restore facial symmetry. A mid-forehead lift has been used to raise both brows typically (can be done unilaterally), places the incision in an already existent crease for better camouflage, and exerts its effect on the brow and lower forehead. Endoscopic, pretrichial, and bicoronal approaches have their effects on the brow complex with increasing potential for scar visibility.Pretrichial and bicoronal approaches offer good control of brow position and can treat laxity/wrinkles of the forehead but typically require skin excision to get rid of redundant tissue.Endoscopic approaches are more minimally invasive with respect to scarring and typically are used for brow repositioning. ...Read more
