Today’s endoscopic plastic surgery provides a natural method of lifting the brow with only a few short incisions. The brow has become recognized as a critical aspect to overall facial rejuvenation. Often, the tired expression is a result of a descended brow rather than only excess eyelid skin or fat. Cosmetic eyelid surgery alone may not always be the right option. Brow lift surgery has reached a very advanced state so that the brow can be restored in a natural pleasing way without significant downtime. A “startled” look after a brow lift reflects inferior results and will not occur with Dr. LaPatka’s technique that emphasizes a natural rejuvenation. And, you will be less likely to develop new lines.
