Forehead and eyebrows

Invisible lifting of the forehead, eyebrows and eyelids

Endoscopic video lifting of the forehead, eyebrows and eyelids.

The lowering of the eyebrows together with the frontal wrinkles, the eyebrows and crow's feet give the face the aspect of anger, sadness and old age. Invisible Lifting is a minimally invasive procedure whose purpose is to raise the eyebrows, remove excess skin from the upper eyelids and sometimes lift the nasal tip.

The Invisible Lifting rejuvenates the look and gives the face a more rested, happy and youthful expression. This procedure is done through a minimal hidden incision in the scalp.

Candidates for this procedure are women and men who have decreased eyebrows and excess skin on the upper eyelids. These patients generally have an expression of tiredness, sadness or anger in their eyes and the majority express that this expression does not coincide with their real state of mind.


Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra has developed a new procedure, the “Pivoting Brow Lift” or “Pivoting Eyebrow Lift”, which avoids the scars associated with conventional resective and endoscopic surgeries.

Procedure description

The Pivoting Forehead and Eyebrow Lift repositions the eyebrows, clears the look and reduces expression wrinkles, providing significant aesthetic and functional results.

Benefits for Patients

Many patients come to the procedure due to visual difficulties, accompanied by headaches and neck pain, symptoms that Dr. Hoogstra's technique helps to alleviate.

Process and Recovery

The procedure is carried out under local anesthesia and sedation, lasting approximately 30 minutes. After the intervention, patients generally remain in the clinic for about 4 hours, where they are cared for by specialized staff before leaving. During this time, your post-operative condition is monitored and the necessary care is provided to ensure proper recovery before returning home.

Follow-up and Recovery Time

The first checkup is scheduled 7 days after the procedure, at which time the patient's progress is evaluated and additional guidance is provided as needed. Additionally, patients have constant access to medical equipment throughout the recovery process, providing peace of mind and ongoing support.

In terms of recovery time, most patients can expect to return to normal activities within 3 to 7 days after the procedure. It is important to note that this period may vary slightly depending on the individual characteristics of each patient and the extent of the procedure performed. However, in general, recovery is expected to be rapid and with minimal bruising, allowing patients to return to their daily routine promptly and comfortably.

Logistics for Foreign Patients

Foreign patients must be in Buenos Aires the day before surgery, with operating days generally scheduled on Wednesdays at 6:30 AM. The length of stay in Buenos Aires is usually approximately 10 days, although some can return to their places of origin even 48 hours after the procedure.
