Smooth Results, Every Time.
Dr. Janet Turkle performs brow lift or forehead lift surgery in Indianapolis and Carmel Indiana and has beautiful results. A browlift, or forehead lift, is a surgical procedure that smooths out the forehead, while raising the eyebrows and reducing frown lines. The procedure is one of the least complicated and least painful of all cosmetic surgeries. A forehead lift erases many of the effects of aging, leaving you with a smoother, more youthful looking appearance.
This surgery can be performed with a variety of techniques. The endoscopic technique, which Dr. Turkle utilizes most often, requires small incisions placed within the hairline. The operating endoscope is then used to allow the surgeon to elevate the brow area which is then secured in the desired position. .

In the endoscopic approach, small incisions are hidden within the frontal hairline. In rare instances, larger incisions may need to be made in order to optimize or tailor your results. If necessary, this would be discussed at your consultation.
