The incisions are designed to be discreet and hidden within the scalp. Through cutting brow lift, you can modify or remove parts of the muscles that cause wrinkles and frown lines form; also remove excess skin and raising eyebrows.

The endoscope is inserted through several tiny incisions in the scalp allowing the plastic surgeon to see and work several structures of the forehead.
