The fixation method of endoscopic forehead lift can be divided into 3 types.

The first type is to use the screw used by the dentist for orthodontics to enable fixation.
In the second type, the fixed implant called endotine, which is a bio-absorbable soft tissue, can be used for fixation.
The third type is to drill a hole directly on the skull for fixation.

The type can be determined under sufficient amount of consultation with the doctor according to the peripheral condition of the individual patient (occupation, living abroad, etc.) depending on the recovery process of the patient after the surgery.
