The eyebrow/eyelid complex is responsible for a great deal of facial expression. Eyebrow position can suggest sadness, anger, confusion and alertness. If eyebrows droop, often a sad, angry or tired appearance occurs.
An endoscopic brow lift, also called a forehead lift, surgically corrects drooping eyebrows and softens worried or angry expressions that result from frown lines. During the procedure, commonly performed on men and women between the ages of 35 and 70, our surgeon will elevate the skin and underlying tissues of the upper face and may remove part of the muscle that causes frown lines between the brows. The result is a more youthful, relaxed and refreshed appearance.
How is an Endoscopic Brow Lift Performed?
Eyebrow lifts can be performed directly in the hairs of the brow if the brow is thick, indirectly through an eyelid incision when performing cosmetic eyelid surgery or at the hairline. Endoscopic eyebrow surgery is performed through a very small incision near the hairline and has the advantages of small incision sites, faster recovery and a more natural look. We often perform this procedure along with eyelid surgery to achieve a natural youthful appearance.
Who is a Brow Lift Candidate?
If you have sagging eyebrows that create a tired or sad appearance, deep horizontal creases across your forehead, or frown lines or furrows between your eyebrows, you may be a good endoscopic brow lift candidate. To get a glimpse of the potential results, you can try a simple test on your own. Place your fingertips at the outer edges of your eyebrows and gently raise the skin upwards. This will give you a good indication of what the procedure might do for your appearance. Of course the best way to determine if an endoscopic brow lift is right for you is by a thorough consultation with our doctor.
What Results Can I Expect?
If you’re like most brow lift patients, you will be very pleased with your refreshed appearance. The harsh lines between your brows that create an unpleasant and most likely misinterpreted facial expression will be softened. Although it may take several months to see the final results, you’ll probably agree that your new invigorated and inviting look was worth the wait.
