An Endoscopic Brow lift is a procedure done to raise a drooping or heavy brow. This procedure reduces wrinkles on the forehead and heaviness in the glabella. The brow line can be repositioned which can lessen or eliminate sagging upper eyelids. Overall, an Endoscopic Brow lift will create a lighter and more youthful appearance. The use of endsoscopes greatly reduces recovery time and is less invasive requiring smaller inscisions.
The procedure takes approximately 90 minutes and takes place in the operating room. In most cases, we utilize IV sedation or “twilight” sleep anesthesia. The Surgeon makes a series of small incisions that are hidden within the hairline. After the incisions are made, the surgeon, with the help of special equipment, gently releases and raises the brow tissue utilizing endoscopes to guide the procedure.
Due to Dr. Adler’s endoscopic technique, recovery is quicker than older and more invasive procedures. After the surgery, the patients have a head dressing which is removed the following morning. There is no need for drains or tubes. The incision lines are placed behind the hairline and the sutures are removed in 7 days. Minimal bruising is sometimes seen after the procedure and most swelling resolves in the first 2 weeks. In most cases, patients are usually able to return to the public in about 7 to 10 days.
After the initial healing period and you return to work, you will continue to heal and see the final results in a few months and up to a year. The healing process is relatively easy, the results are long lasting and you will look renewed and more youthful.
