How Does an Endoscopic Brow Lift Work?

Published on March 20, 2020 by

A minimally-invasive surgical procedure, the endoscopic brow lift (also known as an eyebrow lift or forehead lift), is performed under anesthesia. It is a cosmetic procedure to reduce wrinkles and frown lines caused by sagging of the skin in those areas. Generally, this approach involves a swifter healing process, and patients report less bruising than other traditional methods used. This could provide a long-lasting solution to the problems of a heavy, sagging brow.

How It Is Done and How It Works

The goal of the endoscopic brow lift is to rejuvenate the facial appearance of a person by restoring a fresher and more vibrant look. First, excess fat and skin on the forehead are taken out. Underlying muscles and tissues are positioned once more, so as not to affect parts of the face, other than the part being surgically worked on. As this is done by an endoscope, the procedure is less invasive, and consequently, less painful. The plastic/cosmetic surgeon will make very small incisions (around three-fourths of an inch) just behind the hairline first. Then, using a special instrument, called an endoscope, which has a minute camera at the end, the repositioning of underlying muscles and tissues will be done. Simultaneously, extra fat and skin tissue will be removed, creating a more youthful-looking forehead and brow area. The doctor will, naturally, show you some “before and after” photos of exactly how your brow will appear, so you won’t be in for a rude shock. The pros are evident as this procedure uses the latest and safest technology.
