Dr. Anthony’s Surgical Technique
Our San Francisco forehead lift involves either IV sedation or general anesthesia, based on the complexity of the procedure. An incision site will be chosen depending on individual factors such as the degree of skin sag, whether or not the forehead is to be addressed, and the appearance of the patient’s hairline. Dr. Anthony utilizes a variety of cutting-edge techniques for his brow lift procedure, including the following.
Lateral Brow Lift
Also called a temporal browplasty, this method places the incision within the hairline, slightly above the temples. A temporal incision allows for the treatment of the outer sections of the brow and is best for visible sagging in the outer brow and the treatment of crow’s feet.
The trichophytic incision is made directly against the patient's hairline, permitting a more dramatic lift in the brow for patients with a lower risk for hairline recession.
Endoscopic Forehead Lift
The endoscopic lift is a brow lift method involving multiple small incisions beyond the hairline. An endoscope is inserted, then pushed to the eyebrow to release its attached tools. Dr. Anthony then repositions the brow tissue using the endoscope’s camera, with stitches ensuring a more optimal brow position.
