For many years, the face-lift has not been the only intervention for facial rejuvenation. It is necessary today to specify the type of face-lift, cervico-facial lifting, frontal lifting or facelift. We will consider in this article the frontal lift and centro-facial lift and its possible execution assisted by endoscopy with therefore minimal scars, hidden in the scalp. We will consider successively its technique, its indications and its results highlighting a very long hold over time.

Keywords: Endoscopie; Endoscopy; Face-lift; Facial rejuvenation; Frontal area; Lifting cervico-facial; Rajeunissement facial.
