Eyebrow Cosmetic Procedure
Eyes | Endoscopic Browlift
A well done browlift should be subtle, natural and not overdone. In addition to elevating the brow it can soften forehead wrinkles and reduce or eliminate the frown lines between the eyebrows.
The sagging brow, another consequence of facial aging, substantially impacts on eye appeal. A low brow tends to create upper eyelids that appear heavy and look overhung. Repositioning the eyebrows upward to a natural position does much to correct and improve the appearance of the eyes. Wrinkles between the eyes and furrows on the forehead may be addressed through a browlift as well; often done alone, but more commonly in combination with a blepharoplasty, the browlift complements cosmetic eyelid surgery, to completely rejuvenate the upper third of the face.
The technique we prefer is called an endoscopic, or minimal incision browlift. It allows us to perform the restoration through three to five minimal incisions of one-half inch to an inch made in the scalp above the hairline. A thin endoscope about the size of a pencil inserted through these incisions allows us to elevate the sagging brow. Relying upon this state-of-the-art technology, forehead tissues are lifted and repositioned, remaining in place for years to come.
