Endoscopic Brow Lift
The effects of aging are almost always noticeable on the forehead and brow areas. Creases in the forehead, crow’s feet around the eyes, and vertical lines between the eyes contribute to a perpetual look of anger or concern.
In the past, brow lifts were massive procedures involving an ear-to-ear incision along the hairline. The unfortunate side effects of this procedure were scarring, hair loss and constant numbness of the forehead.
At Austin Cosmetic Surgery, we use the more modern and minimally invasive endoscopic brow lift procedure to avoid these risks while giving you the results you desire.
You’ll say goodbye to those crow’s feet and enjoy a more youthful look in your forehead and around your eyes. And since all incisions are made behind the hairline, you won’t have to worry about unsightly scars.
Before the Surgery
Before undergoing your endoscopic brow lift, you’ll meet with one of our cosmetic surgeons for a complete medical history review and physical exam. Once we determine if you’re healthy enough for the procedure, we’ll create a plan that is specifically designed for you.
What is an Endoscopic Brow Lift?
Endoscopic brow lifts are minimally invasive. Using a small fiber optic camera known as an endoscope, we are able to perform your brow lift procedure while viewing the progress on a television screen. This allows us to make the smallest incisions, speeding up your recovery time and reducing the risk of scarring.
Endoscopic Brow Lift Procedure
During the endoscopic brow lift procedure, you’ll be unconscious under general anesthesia. We make four small incisions within your forehead and temple and two small incisions inside your mouth. Using the endoscope and a laser, we elevate and resuspend your forehead using materials that will eventually be absorbed and disappear completely.
Endoscopic Brow Lift Recovery
Since endoscopic brow lifts require such small incisions, the recovery period is brief. You may experience some bruising and swelling which will subside in around 10 days. Most patients are back to work within 1-2 weeks.
