The eyes and the forehead play such an important role in communicating your emotions and reflecting your true self. However, with time, the skin around the eyes and in the brow region start to sag, often making us look tired and unhappy, even when we are not.

If this is a problem that you deal with, you should consider undergoing a surgical procedure known as a brow lift. This treatment can help remove excess sagging skin on the forehead and reposition the underlying tissues and muscles to give you a rejuvenated and fresh look.

The brow lift is a great treatment if you have deep furrows, sagging skin in the brow area, and the early signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.

Understanding the Endoscopic Brow Lift Technique

There are different techniques used to perform the brow lift procedure. One of the most popular methods that many people choose is the endoscopic technique. This method is less invasive than the traditional brow lift, but just as effective in getting you the look you desire.

The endoscope your doctor uses plays a very important role in the surgical process. This device is a flexible tube with a camera attached at the end to give your doctor a better view of the treatment area without having to make large incisions. It helps to keep the surgery less invasive and as a result, you won’t have to go through a long period of downtime.

What to Expect During the Procedure

Your doctor will begin the procedure by putting you under an anesthetic to help make you more comfortable while he is performing the surgery. Next, he will make small incisions along the hairline. The endoscope is then inserted through the incisions to give your surgeon a better view of the treatment area by projecting video on a screen.

Using specialized surgical instruments, your doctor will lift the forehead skin, the brows are repositioned, and any muscle tissue responsible for the lines on the forehead is removed or tightened. Finally, any excess skin is removed. The remaining skin is stretched to fit your desired look and the incisions are closed.

Following the treatment, the surgical area will be bandaged. You may experience some post-surgical marks, but your doctor will hide them within your hairline so that they remain invisible. You may experience some discomfort after the surgery, but it will subside in time. You should follow any surgical instructions given to you in order to experience the best results possible.

The Best Candidates for an Endoscopic Brow Lift

Anyone who suffers from the following issues are good candidates:

• Deep furrows
• Heavy upper eyelids
• Drooping brows
• The persistent look of being tired, angry, or worried
• Horizontal lines on the forehead

In order to be considered for the surgery, you will have to schedule an initial consultation with an experience surgeon. During your consultation, your doctor will ask you about your medical history to make sure that you are a good fit. If you don’t have a history of medical problems and you’re in good general health, you will make a great candidate for the procedure.
