Endoscopic Browlift in Sacramento
Aging can be particularly unpleasant for some individuals. Loose skin in the forehead and brow areas can make a person appear older than they are or even draw out a saddened or angered expression. A browlift, or browplasty, is achieved by lifting sagging or loose skin and eliminating fat deposits in the forehead to rejuvenate a more youthful and pleasant facial expression.
What causes sagging skin in the forehead?
As an individual ages, natural and environmental elements can cause the skin in the forehead and brow area to sag and create a sad or angry expression. Sun damage and natural aging cause collagen in the forehead to breakdown resulting in skin losing its structure and becoming more lax. Muscles within the forehead can become weakened, creating horizontal lines in the forehead and a vertical crease between eyebrows.
Do I need a browlift?

If you exhibit any of these characteristics and are interested in improving this appearance, you should contact Dr. Mabourakh for a consultation.
