During the natural aging process, the muscles beneath our skin relax. This reduces the tautness of our skin and causes sagging. The degree of sagging skin varies from person to person, but one common area is the forehead. Your eyebrows may appear lower or your forehead longer. Additionally, you may find your eyelids appear heavy or droopy as the eyebrows lower over your orbital bones. A brow lift can restore the placement of your eyebrows and provide a youthful, open-eyed appearance.
What Is an Endoscopic Brow Lift?
A brow lift repositions the eyebrows and shortens the forehead. There are many ways to perform a brow lift, and one common method is the endoscopic lift. Three to five small incisions are made, and the surgeon places thin cameras and tools in the incisions. These tiny tools allow your surgeon to carefully lift the forehead and brow and anchor it at a higher point. This creates a permanent lift, and for some patients, can also lessen the vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows (also known as the “11 lines”).
The incisions for the endoscopic brow lift are smaller and well-hidden in the hair. It can be combined with another type of lift which raises the corners of the brows in an angular configuration. As with all surgical procedures, this can result is significant changes in appearance if done improperly. Only a skilled plastic surgeon should perform endoscopic brow lifts, so that you achieve a natural, comfortable appearance.
