Forehead Lift/Brow Lift
Brow lift (Forehead lift) entails restoring or raising your eyebrows to its original position. It is also used to minimize horizontal lines of your forehead as well as to improve the lines between your eyebrows and possibly the extra skin at the corner of your eyes.
At Dr. Amy Anti-Aging and Cosmetic Surgery Center, certified expert doctors uses the Anterior Hairline Subcutaneous Approach thereby preserving the original hairline and reducing the high forehead. This technique also avoids the feeling of numbness over the scalp. The scars will improve over time and penetration of the scar with new hair serves as a camouflage. If you do not want to have scars in the hairline certified expert doctors also performs the coronal approach to brow lifting.
