I am 61 years old, male and in very good health. I have used Botox for almost 5 years to erase the wrinkles on my forehead. It works wonderfully but I think I am ready for a more permanent solution. My hair is receding and I wonder if the endoscopic browlift will leave a noticeable scar because of the hair loss in this area.
An endoscopic browlift is an excellent procedure even for men with receding hairline. The incisions can be sutured to produce a nearly invisible scar. Having said that, a mid-forehead brow lift is also an excellent option in men with horizontal forehead wrinkling. The procedure is performed by using a horizontal wrinkle to place an incision and remove skin to elevate the brow. A browlift is not to solution for forehead wrinkling however, it is the solution for depressed brows. If however the brows are low and wrinkling his present you may see some improvement in wrinkling as a side effect of browlift. A doesn’t necessarily mean that youe will not still require Botox to relieve the expressive nature of the forehead muscles.
