Brow lift surgery is used to lift the sagging eyebrows that appear as you age, and which give you a tired, sad, or angry look. This surgical procedure gives a more youthful look to the area above your eyes.
Brow lift surgery raises the eyebrows to their normal, youthful appearance. This will also lift some of the excess skin on the upper lid that causes a tired look. At The Plastic Surgery Group of Rochester, we use minimally invasive techniques to perform an endoscopic brow lift.
What is Endoscopic Brow Lift Surgery?
Endoscopic Brow Lift Surgery only requires four small incisions, less than an inch long each. Your surgeon will insert a pencil-shaped instrument called an endoscope into one of the openings. At the end of the endoscope is a small camera connected to a television monitor. This allows your surgeon to see the underlying muscles and tissues without having to make large incisions. Working through another of the incisions, your surgeon uses a different instrument to lift the forehead skin and alter or remove muscles and tissue in much the same manner as a traditional brow lift, resulting in the same smooth, youthful appearance.
