Plastic Surgery Questions Answered by Dr. Chernoff in Our Plastic Surgery FAQ
Q: A friend of mine recently had an endoscopic forehead lift. What can you tell me about this technique?
A: A relatively new technique, endoscopic browlift is useful in younger patients with brow wrinkles. Several half-inch incisions are made in the scalp, and a tiny video camera and other specially designed instruments are introduced and used to lift the skin and tighten the muscles. Tiny screws, electrocautery, or lasers may be used to fix tissue in its new position. A tight headband is worn for several days to hold the skin in place while it heals. Because it does not permit the removal of excess skin, endoscopic browlift is recommended only for patients with good skin tone and little sagging. Other browlift techniques may give better results in some patients.
Q: I’m convinced my sagging jowls are damaging my credibility with clients, but what can I do? Men don’t get facelifts, do they?
A: In today’s competitive job market, sagging jowls, tired eyes, and drooping foreheads are liabilities for men as well as women. Many men today seek facial rejuvenation surgery to maintain the healthy, robust appearance that reflects the way they feel inside. A facelift can remove those sagging jowls and restore your jawline. Bagginess around the eyes and deep brow lines that project an angry or worried look are also common in men. These problems are improved by eyelid or forehead surgery. If your face doesn’t project your true image, a facial plastic surgeon can help- men as well as women
