COSMETIC FACIAL PLASTIC SURGERY
One of the main characteristics of facial aging is the sagging of the frontalis muscle with an evident formation of wrinkles and change of the arch (fall) of supercilium (eyebrows).
This operation is performed using a special endoscope with optical fibers wherein real unseen incisions inside the scalp, the frontal muscle is repositioned and restructured achieving a more restful and a far less wrinkly forehead.
