The endoscopic brow lift is our preferred version of this procedure. It involves less scarring than the traditional brow lift, but still allows our surgeons to produce a dramatic aesthetic transformation.
An endoscopic brow lift is designed to elevate drooping tissue and smooth away wrinkles, fine lines and creases in the forehead area. Because a lowered brow can create a perpetually angry, tired or aged expression, the procedure can revitalize your face and take years off your appearance.
The endoscopic brow lift is performed through several tiny incisions, rather than a single lengthy one. A thin tube with a camera attached (an endoscope) is inserted beneath the skin. This tool allows our surgeons to view your underlying structures on a television screen in the operating room.
To be considered an ideal candidate for an endoscopic brow lift, you need to be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for what the procedure can accomplish. In addition, you should have forehead lines, wrinkles and drooping tissue that you’d like to address.
Immediately after surgery, some temporary swelling and bruising in the treatment area is to be expected. This can persist for a week or so. During the initial recovery period, it’s important to keep your head elevated at all times to control swelling and ensure an optimal healing process.
During your brow lift, we will remodel your underlying facial structure and the skin to ensure natural, long-lasting results. Once the swelling has disappeared, you will see a smoother forehead, elevated brows, and an overall more youthful appearance. To preserve these beautiful results, it’s important to stay out of the sun and have non-invasive maintenance enhancements as recommended, such as BOTOX or laser treatments.
An endoscopic brow lift offers a dramatic transformation with minimal scarring and a relatively quick recovery period. To begin planning for your procedure, please contact our Del Mar or Coronado office today and schedule a consultation.
