Procedure used to perform facial rejuvenation.
Frontoplasty or Facial Lifting. With the passage of time, genetic factors or repetitive gestures, the tissues of the frontal area tend to fall, causing an aged, tired, sad, angry or permanent temper.

The elevation of the forehead and eyebrows through endoscopic techniques significantly reduces these signs of aging and restores the fresh and youthful appearance.
