Through expert techniques and nearly undetectable incisions, endoscopic browlift can erase the furrows and frown lines that make you look tired, angry or confused, or reposition hooded, low brows for a more natural, youthful appearance. Browlift surgery, when performed with experience and vision, results in an appearance that looks vibrant, happy and youthful. Nothing looks pulled, artificial or overdone and your hairline remains unchanged. A browlift treats the upper portion of the face (above the eyes) and may be performed in conjunction with eyelid or facelift surgery or as a stand alone procedure.
