    Wide Nose BridgeWhat is Endotine Forehead lift?

    Endotine Forehead lift Surgery for younger and natural-looking distinctive eyes


    If you excessively and repeatedly use your forehead muscles, then deep wrinkles are created on your forehead. Those who have deep forehead wrinkles look older than their actual ages. Plus, if you have slanted eyebrows, you may look depressed. In addition to these, if you have distinctive glabellar frown lines, you could give off a menacing look to others.
    Endotine forehead lift Surgery is an operation that lifts your sagging forehead skin so that your forehead wrinkles are diminished effectively and fundamentally. 

    In particular, Endotine forehead lift Surgery that is operated by our special endoscope can minimize scarring, as our specialists assess every single part of a surgical area via an endoscope. Plus, we can conduct a safer operation through use of the endoscope as we can avoid facial paralysis or loss of sensation by neural damages. If a patient has an excessively broad forehead, we can perform a customized operation which can help to lower the patient’s hairline at the same time.

    JW performs a safer and more accurate operation through using our state-of-the-art and highly function Full-HD Endoscope system. We provide the optimum satisfaction to our customers with our long-lasting lift effects by using our specially designed absorption fixation device (Endotine).
