As we age, our forehead lengthens and our eyebrows descend. This causes
excess skin to build up on our upper eyelid and may result in unsightly
furrows in the forehead as a compensatory mechanism. This can make you
look angry or tired.
Fortunately, a brow lift or forehead
can give you a brand new, more youthful, and rested appearance. The
procedure changes the muscles and tissues that cause furrowing in the
forehead, creating a smoother forehead while elevating the eyebrows and
reducing the upper eyelid skin.
Endoscopic forehead brow lifts
improves the visible signs of the aging process and results in a younger
and happier appearance for years to come.
With traditional forehead surgery, a
large incision was made behind or in front of the hairline. With the
newer, state-of-the-art, endoscopic approach to forehead lifts, only a
few small incisions are used. This approach allows the cosmetic surgeon
to see under the skin with a special camera called an endoscope. There
is minimal scaring, and minimal pain and swelling to this approach.
Patients may be able to return to work in as little as four days.
Eyebrow (forehead) lifts are now most
commonly performed through an endoscopic approach. It is often combined
with cosmetic eye or eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or with procedures
on the lower face such as a midface lift, S lift, or lower face lift.
This revolutionary advance in
rejuvenating the upper face and forehead has resulted in greatly
reducing the size of the incisions and therefore, greatly reducing the
pain and postoperative swelling associated with earlier techniques. In
fact, the incisions used for endoscopic brow lifts are so small that Dr.
Kass does not hesitate to offer this procedure even to men with thinning

which demonstrate how well these tiny incisions heal.
When the endoscopic brow lift first
became popular, some surgeons used metal screws for fixation and these
were a problem for many patients. Even today, some cosmetic and facial
plastic surgeons use dissolving screws and plates which may be palpable
for months and which may have unpredictable results. From the beginning,
Dr. Kass has used a unique suture technique which he, himself,
developed, to bring lasting and predictable results to his patients.
Endoscopic brow lifts are most commonly performed by ophthalmic plastic,
oculofacial and facial plastic surgeons.
Dr. Kass has performed this procedure
on so many satisfied patients during his successful career. Why trust
your face to anyone else?
