Endoscopic Forehead Lifting

Brighter impressions with de-aged upper face

Sagging forehead is a cause of overall upper face aging

The forehead is a facial area with the most noticeable wrinkles.
Deep lengthwise wrinkles, along with many fine lines, accentuate your age.
When the forehead loses its firmness and starts to droop, it accelerates aging in all over the upper face, including drooping and wrinkles in the brows and the eyes.

Therefore, even though you may be stressed about the wrinkles in your eyes or drooping eyelids, the cause may be in the forehead. If this is the case, it is better to consider an endoscopic forehead lifting that lifts the entire forehead, rather than procedures that only improve the eye area.

Correcting forehead sagging with a more direct approach

The principles behind endoscopic forehead lifting are simple.
It creates a relatively small incision window near the hairline, peeling the loose forehead skin, and then lifting the loose skin. The lifted skin is evenly fixed into place with Endotine* and stitched up.

This method tackles the forehead sagging in a more direct manner and is, therefore, more effective and shows quicker results. In addition, the procedure follows the plans made during consultation according to the forehead’s conditions and width: this makes the operation more precise and the results more satisfying.

    Endotine*

    Endotine is an US FDA-approved product made from bio-friendly material.
    Unlike simple stitching that focuses all the strength onto a single location, Endotine pulls the skin tissues with even pressure, preventing side effects or reoccurrences and allowing for a more natural-looking wrinkle removal. Moreover, because the material naturally dissolves within the body over time, providing a semi-permanent fixation, Endotine is used in various antiaging procedures.

BANOBAGI offers wider and more even peeling

The ideal way to correct forehead sagging is to make the smallest incision possible, evenly peeling the entire forehead down to the brows, and pulling back the skin. If the dermal layer in the forehead is unevenly peeled, the wrinkles are corrected unevenly, and the possibility of side effects (such as facial asymmetry or change in facial impressions) arises. However, if the skin is too widely peeled, the risk of damage to the underlying tissues (e.g., nerves, veins, etc.) increases as well: not to mention that wider peeling means wider incision. This simply means more risk for the patients.

BANOBAGI offers an endoscope-based forehead lifting to better improve your forehead and reduce the risk to you.

With our vast knowledge and experience, we can evenly peel a wider area, all the while monitoring the locations of nerves or blood vessels with endoscopy. Therefore, BANOBAGI’s endoscopic forehead lifting has a little risk of side-effects or scarring, offers quicker recovery, and more evenly corrects upper face drooping.
