Forehead Lift - Brow Lift in Buffalo, NY

In Buffalo Forehead lift or Brow Lift is performed by Dr. Shatkin to treat conditions associated with aging.  If the brows have decended below the bony ridge above the eye, browlift may be right for you. It may be done in conjunction with eyelift surgery to achieve a more harmonious facial appearance. A forehead lift is also appropriate for treatment of certain inherited traits. Younger adults who have a low brow or who already have deep frown lines due to stress or overactivity of muscles may benefit from the procedure.

Doctor Shatkin uses the endoscopic approach to the browlift.  By making small incisions in the scalp, just behind the hairline, a fiberoptic camera is inserted into the forehead and the skin is released to be lifted to a higher position.  The elevation is then secured with anchors in the scalp.  There are no incisions in the forehead and the scars are well concealed.  The anchors are removed after about 2 to 3 weeks, when the forehead positioning is healed.

Most procedures are performed in his fully accredited office surgery suite as an outpatient procedure that allows the patient to go home the same day.
