- People who say they look older than they feel or appear angry or tired.
- Patients who have wrinkle lines across the forehead from holding the eyebrows up to see better.
- Patients with deep furrow lines between the eyebrows.
- Patients with sagging or drooping eyebrows that create hooding on the upper eyelids.
The Result the Endoscopic (Minimal Incision) Procedure
- Three to four small incisions are made in the hairline. A camera (endoscope) is inserted that allows Dr. Sukkar to remove a portion of the muscle and to lift and tighten the forehead and brow.
