How is the surgery performed?
The endoscopic brow lift, involves the use of a surgical telescope to elevate the brows and smooth forehead wrinkles through small incisions made behind the hairline. Endoscopic surgery is less invasive than the traditional approach, and the scars are much smaller.
The endoscopic approach is typically best suited for patients who do not have deep horizontal lines across the forehead or a lot of loose skin on the forehead. A brow lift can be performed alone or with other cosmetic procedures such as a face lift or eye lid surgery.
