Brow Lift - Process and Procedure

The Process

Modern browlift utilizes endoscopic technology. An endoscope (a surgical telescope) and other instruments are used to perform browlift surgery through tiny incisions hidden behind the hairline. During this surgery, the muscles pulling the brow down and causing brow and forehead wrinkles are treated. The brow is easily elevated, and the small incisions closed. Since these small incisions are used, bruising is minimal and healing is much more rapid. At times, the brow can be lifted through an incision in the upper eyelid.

The Procedure

The patient can usually return to work in a week with a more youthful, rested appearance. The brows no longer hang as a curtain over the eyes, and the forehead is much smoother. A browlift can be combined easily with a blepharoplasty, facelift, laser resurfacing or chemical peel, based on the patient's specific needs and goals.
