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

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?

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

What is the typical cost of endoscopic forehead lift surgery?

What is the typical cost of endoscopic forehead lift surgery?

Not for everyone: Aka browlift: as low as $4000 ranging to $6000 & up depending on where you live. I think it is an overly performed procedure which either doesn't appear to have actually lifted the eyebrows in some cases, and in other cases, the eyebrows are lifted too high. Look at the relaxed flat brow of the young woman here. Raising the eyebrows too high can show too much upper eyelid => "surprised look.". ...Read more
