A brow lift, or forehead lift, can help rejuvenate the upper face by lifting the brow line to a higher, more youthful, position and reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles of the forehead. It is often performed in combination with a facelift and/or blepharoplasty for full facial rejuvenation.
The endoscopic browlift is a minimal access technique performed by using an endoscope and specialized instruments placed through small incisions made within the hairline. This allows repositioning of the underlying tissue and muscle and re-suspension of the brow to give a more youthful appearance.
- Recovery time will vary and may be anywhere from 5 days to 2 weeks based on the size of your incisions. Your incisions are stitched, and your forehead may be taped with your head wrapped in a loose bandage to minimize swelling and bruising.
- After the removal of your staples in scalp where scars are hiden, (7-14 days) you will be ready to return to most normal activities.
- There will be temporary bruising and numbness both at the site and also the surrounding area, which may last for up to two weeks. As with all other surgery, medication will be prescribed to help prevent any pain or discomfort and prevent any infection.
