Endoscopic Brow Lift
Endoscopic brow lift is another technique used for brow lift surgery. This method is effective not only for handling drooping eyebrows like direct brow lift surgery, but it can also correct forehead and glabella wrinkles, as well as putting the scars and marks hidden along the hairline.
Individuals whose eyebrows are considerably drooping, making their faces look tired
Individuals with eyelid ptosis from brow position being too low
Individuals with forehead wrinkles and glabella wrinkles
After applying general anaesthesia, the surgeon will inject tumescent fluid into the area to perform the operation. Afterwards, a total of five 1-cm-long cuts will be made along the hairline, in order to insert the camera and other surgical instruments. The first step is to remove the skin that is currently pulling down the eyebrow, and removing parts of the muscles that are causing forehead and glabella wrinkles. The surgeon will then stop the bleeding with an electrocautery, and finally lift the brows and fix them in place (using Endotine Forehead) and close the wound.
Apply some cold packs to the area during the first 3 days.
Clean the area daily, avoid contact with water until suture removal date.
Wear a face mask the day after for 1 month.
Remove the stitches on Day 7. Patient can wash his/her face and apply makeup afterwards.
Avoid sunlight exposure during the first 3 months.
The swelling will be less noticeable after 3-6 months.
Scars and marks may be visible during the first 3 months, and will gradually fade out within a year.
Endoscopic Brow Lift technique rarely comes with any side-effects. The patient may encounter temporary scalp numbness during the first 2-3 months.
How long will the change last?
The result will typically last 5-10 years, depending on the individual’s age, skin type, and lifestyle.
