What is an Endoscopic Brow Lift and how can it refresh your appearance

Endoscopic Brow Lift

If you have deep forehead creases and furrows that are making you look old, or tired all the time, an endoscopic brow lift can dramatically improve your  appearance. But what is an endoscopic brow lift, and how can it rejuvenate your face. Let’s explain.

What is an endoscopic brow lift

An endoscopic brow lift raises the eyebrows by elevating the underlying tissues. There are different techniques that can be used to carry out brow lift surgery, but the endoscopic brow lift is the most advanced. The operation is done with the use of an endoscope, which is a surgical instrument that has been used in general surgery for many years.

The endoscope is a small a thin tube that has a tiny light and camera at the end of it. During the procedure the surgeon uses it to visualize the structures, enabling greater precision, and better outcomes.

Who can benefit from a brow lift

If you have deep furrows or wrinkles in the forehead, or sagging brows, then you can benefit from a brow lift. The procedure will open up the upper face, and make it appear brighter and younger.

The Endoscopic brow lift differs from the traditional techniques in several ways:
•    It is minimally invasive.
•    Smaller incisions are required. These are made behind the hairline, and are not easily visible.
•    There is no numbness of the scalp after the operation.
•    It produces a natural lift to the eyebrows.
•    A shorter recovery time is required.

Rejuvenate Your Face with a Miami Brow Lift

Miami has a large number of board certified plastic surgeons that can perform many types of cosmetic procedures, including a brow lift. A brow lift is often done to raise the eyebrows, rejuvenate the face, and give it a more youthful appearance. Skin laxity occurs due to the loss of the valuable proteins in the skin as you age. This tends to deflate facial features, and make you look older.

Fine lines and wrinkles are among the earliest signs of facial aging, and they often occur at the same time with the overall drooping or descent of facial features. Sagging skin creates a downward pull on the entire face, causing the eyes, nose, and mouth to droop. This, coupled with the deep furrows and lines that emerge across the forehead, conspire to make you look tired and angry all the time.

Is brow lift surgery right for you?

If the skin across your forehead has started to sag, causing the eyebrows to descend from their original position, then you are likely to be a good candidate for a brow lift.  When this happens the eyes appear smaller, but brow lift surgery can open up the eyes, and give you a  ‘doe-eyed’ look.

Also, if you have lines stretching across the forehead and between the eyebrows, which make you look older than you are, brow lift surgery can give your face a refreshed appearance.

What’s involved in Brow lift Surgery

Brow lift surgery is designed to elevate the brows, and reverse the descent of the upper portion of the face. The procedure is generally performed on an outpatient basis, under either local or general anesthesia.

The incisions for the brow lift can be made along the temples, above the forehead, or behind the hairline. The location of the incisions should be discussed with your plastic surgeon prior to surgery. After the incisions are made, the surgeon will then lift the skin upward. This will tighten the skin and also reduce sagging.

A brow lift can also be done using a device known as an endoscope.  An endoscopic brow lift utilizes state of the art technology, which reduces the need for incisions. This procedure has a shorter recovery time, and there are fewer risks associated with it. In addition, the incisions made in an endoscopic brow lift are fewer and smaller.   

In Miami, there are times when a brow lift is done in combination with an eyelid lift, or a facelift, to create an overall rejuvenated appearance.
