Question: I feel like the forehead is the most expressive portion of my face. Will this be diminished at all following a brow lift?
Answer: Forehead expression may be effected by a browlift especially if the muscles are cut through to lessen the lines. This is part of the trade-off of a browlift which not only lifts but lessens the appearance of forehead creases.

Question: Is the endoscopic brow lift better than the regular one?
Answer: Each proceedure has its advantages and disadvantages. Endoscopic browlifts have very small and well hidden surgical scars. However the results are not as dramatic or as long lasting as the regular browlift. Both are excellent proceedures, you simply have to decide which is best for you with the help of your surgeon.
Question: Does a facelift include eyelid surgery and a browlift? If not, can I get those two procedures done at the same time as my facelift?
Answer: Eyelifts and brow lifts are done as separate procedures from a facelift, however they can be done at the same time and for many reasons I would suggest doing so. For starters the recovery is a one-step issue and the overall result is much nicer. In the end there will also be a dollar savings.

Question: Where exactly are the incisions made for a browlift? Are they visible after surgery? What if you have a receding hairline?
Answer: The incisions for a brow lift are hidden in the hair and for endoscopic work are very small. If you have a receding hairline the best approach is to make the incisions further back and then if needed add a few hair grafts to camouflage the scar.
Question: I'm debating between a browlift and Botox. Can you explain the difference between the two in terms of results?
Answer: The biggest difference is a brow lift will last years and Botox will last a few months. Also there is no comparison in the quality of results. A brow lift is much more dramatic and a better way to solve wrinkles and drooping (ptosis). However Botox is quick, easy, relatively cheap and a great early fix.
I am male, 52 years old, and interested in a procedure that may not have been invented yet. I definitely want upper eyelid surgery, as my eyes look half-closed most of the time. But I personally don’t see the point of making the eyelid changes without getting rid of deeper wrinkles on my forehead. So I would like a forehead lift at the same time. Now, do these two procedures treat my crow’s feet? If not, I would like to add that into the mix. Is this too much to get done at one time?
A browlift (forehead lift) and blepharoplasty will to some degree help your crows feet problem. After the procedures any residual crows feet will best be dealt with by either Erbium or CO 2 fraxel laser work. The lasering could certainly be done at the same time as the other surgery.
