Forehead Lift (Browlift)

Dr. Rizk performs many types of partial browlifts to lift droopy eyebrows, which can enhance the youthful appearance of the eyes. Browlifts can revitalize drooping or lined foreheads, helping you to look less angry, sad or tired. His advanced techniques include the Endoscopic approach, where small incisions are made and an endoscope is used to visualize the forehead. Using either traditional or minimally invasive (endoscopic) methods, the muscles above the eyes are altered to smooth lines and raise the eyebrows for a more youthful appearance. The procedure is often combined with other operations such as blepharoplasty and facelifts to improve the look of the eyes and other areas of the face.

In a traditional browlift, the surgeon makes a coronal (headphone-shaped) incision behind the hairline, stretching between the ears and across the top of the forehead. In a minimally invasive (endoscopic) browlift the surgeon makes three to five short incisions; then an endoscope -- a slim instrument with a camera on the end -- is placed in one incision while the surgeon works through the other incisions.

He also favors state-of-the-art absorbable Endotine devices to secure the brow into a higher position, which represents a significant improvement over traditional "open" methods because of the smaller scar and more rapid recovery. Additionally, this technique replaces the use of a stitch and lifts the entire brow region as needed, rather than just a single point, which adds longevity to the procedure. Tissue glue expedites recovery.
