Endoscopic Brow Lift
Forehead creases, frown lines, and drooping brows are common conditions that can make people appear old, tired, or angry. Endoscopic brow lift surgery can minimize the appearance of lines and sagging skin with a uniquely gentle technique that results in less downtime than the conventional brow lift.
What is Endoscopic Brow Lift Surgery?
The endoscopic brow lift is a surgical technique that makes use of an endoscope, or small camera, to help make changes to a patient’s forehead without the need for longer incisions. This technique is often combined with eyelid surgery, facelift, and skin resurfacing therapies to provide the best possible facial results.
Reasons for Endoscopic Brow Lift Surgery
Many patients consider endoscopic brow lift surgery to resolve forehead lines, creases, and other signs of aging. The surgery can target the following conditions:
- Horizontal creases across the forehead
- Creases high on the bridge of the nose (between the eyes)
- A sagging brow that hoods the upper eyelids
- Drooping eyebrows that produce the illusion of tiredness or old age
What Happens During Surgery?
After you receive anesthesia, Dr. Lee B. Daniel makes several incisions, each less than an inch in length. A long, slender camera device called an endoscope is inserted through one of the incisions. This allows Dr. Daniel to view the underlying muscles and tissues on a television monitor. Another instrument, inserted through a different incision, is used to either alter or remove underlying tissues to smooth the skin’s appearance. The incisions are then closed with sutures.
After Endoscopic Brow Lift Surgery
Swelling and bruising after endoscopic brow lift surgery tend to be minimal. You may receive a compressive dressing for 1–2 days. The incision lines will fade over time but will not completely disappear. During your recovery period, be sure to advise your doctor or plastic surgeon immediately if you experience any shortness of breath, chest pains, or unusual heartbeats. To maximize your long-term results, you should protect yourself from the sun and pursue a healthy lifestyle.
