We all know that eyebrows can be key to changing the way your face looks, but it’s also true for your entire forehead. Eyebrow lifts are the term for the procedure where we remove excess skin that can form when your eyebrows droop with age. This sagging or droopiness can give you a tired, sad, or even an angry look. An eyebrow lift procedure will help rejuvenate your appearance by giving you a more youthful, opened up look in that area above your eyes. At The Plastic Surgery Group of Rochester, we perform endoscopic brow lifts, which are a less invasive form of brow lift.
What Is Endoscopic Brow Lift Surgery?
As mentioned before, a brow lift surgery helps to give you a younger, youthful appearance by removing excess skin and reshaping your forehead. During an endoscopic brow lift, your doctor will make four small incisions, each less than an inch long. After the incisions are made, 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, this lets your surgeon see what’s underneath your skin to perform the procedure while being minimally invasive. Working through the incision, your surgeon will lift the forehead skin and remove muscles, tissue, and fat to give you a youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
How To Prepare For A Brow Lift
The first step towards getting a brow lift is to meet with a plastic surgeon. During this initial visit, you and your surgeon will go over a number of things including:
- Your medical history. Be ready to answer questions about your current and past medical conditions. Make sure to mention any medications you’re taking or have taken recently, as well as any surgeries you’ve had. Tell your doctor if you are allergic to any medications.
- A physical exam. In order for your doctor to determine your treatment options, your doctor may want to take measurements of your face as well as take photographs for your medical record.
- Discuss your expectations. This is the part where you can go over your goals for your appearance after the procedure. We’ll also go over the benefits and risks involved.
