The endoscopic brow lift is the preferred surgical procedure for rejuvenating the forehead and upper portions of the face. When the brow begins to descend and sag, a person can be left with an angry or tired appearance. This can occur in the mid 30s or as late as the 60s. Whenever it occurs, an endoscopic brow lift can gently lift the tissues of the brow to provide an effective, yet subtle renewal of the forehead and brow.
What Can the Endoscopic Brow Lift Achieve?
Several facial imperfections can be corrected through brow lift surgery. Below are a few of the common indications:
- A low or droopy brow
- Crow’s feet or deep furrows above or between the eyes
- Excess tissue on the upper eyelids
- Forehead lines
Who Should Consider an Endoscopic Brow Lift?
An endoscopic brow lift can be an excellent option for patients who are bothered by mild to moderate sagging skin on the brow or forehead. Those with more extensive sagging and excess brow skin may experience better results with a conventional brow lift. At your consultation, Dr. Branman will explain what each option might achieve for you, so you can make the best decision for your needs.
The Endoscopic Brow Lift Procedure
During surgery, incisions (usually 4) are made behind the hairline. A surgical endoscope (a tiny fiber optic camera) is used to aid the surgeon’s view of the underlying facial tissues. The skin and tissue of the brow is gently lifted, some excess skin is removed or sutured, and the incisions are closed.
The endoscopic brow lift is an advanced technique and a significant improvement over the traditional form of brow lift surgery. The incisions are smaller, postoperative pain is reduced, and patient recovery is quicker.
