Who Is a Candidate for an Endoscopic Brow Lift?
Patients who want to elevate the brow, smooth forehead wrinkles, and reshape the brows can be good candidates for this surgery. Candidates for the endoscopic brow lift must be in good health. Since smoking disrupts the body’s healing processes, candidates must also be non-smokers or willing to abstain from smoking as directed.
This procedure is not right for everyone. An endoscopic brow lift is not recommended for patients with high-set hairlines or patients affected by male pattern baldness. Patients with more advanced forehead aging may need a coronal brow lift to accomplish their desired outcome.
What to Expect During an Endoscopic Brow Lift Procedure
We perform endoscopic brow lifts on an outpatient basis, which means you will be cleared to go home within hours of your surgery. Every endoscopic brow lift is tailored to the patient’s treatment goals and unique anatomy, so the total surgery time varies. However, anesthesia is necessary for all endoscopic brow lift procedures.
An endoscopic brow lift requires multiple short incisions. The incisions can typically be placed discreetly behind the hairline.
An endoscope, which is a very small camera and light attached to a thin tube, will be inserted through one of the incisions. This tool allows the doctor to see the underlying forehead tissues and muscles without having to completely lift the skin.
The endoscope will stay in place while a surgical instrument is inserted through different incisions, so the brow muscles and tissue can be modified and excess fat can be removed. Small screws or sutures will be used to secure the elevated position of the brow. When this process has finished, the external incisions will be closed with sutures.
How Long Does It Take to Recover from an Endoscopic Brow Lift?
Endoscopic brow lift recovery is shorter and involves less discomfort than a more invasive, classic brow lift surgery. The average time for initial wound healing is about seven days.
Visible swelling and bruising are usually minor and can subside in less than a week for some patients. For others, these symptoms may take 10-14 days to fully dissipate.
Endoscopic Brow Lift Results
Endoscopic brow lift patients will notice results right away. The likelihood of conspicuous post-procedure marks is much lower with this surgery than with a classic brow lift.
In addition to more aesthetic brow contours, patients often report that their endoscopic brow lift resulted in a boost in self-confidence. Patients can also experience positive changes in their interactions with others due to their more pleasant resting facial expression.
The smoothing and lifting effects of an endoscopic brow lift are long-lasting. Dr. Emer can design an anti-aging protocol of periodic non-surgical cosmetic treatments to help you preserve your enhanced look as long as possible. Your personalized protocol may include:
- Energy-based skin tightening
- Laser skin resurfacing
- Chemical peels
- Medical-grade skincare products
