Browlift [ Forehead lift ]
Also known as a forehead lift, a browlift is a surefire way to elevate the eyebrows to a more youthful position. The procedure can also decrease forehead lines and crow’s-feet and may diminish any hooding that might be occurring in the upper lid area.
In most cases, a browlift is performed using an endoscope—a special surgical tool that has a video camera at the end. When an endoscope is used the incision is made in the hairline so that any scars will be almost undetectable once you are fully healed. The advantage of using an endoscope is that it allows your surgeon to manipulate the tissue and muscle without having to make large incisions.
Another benefit to the endoscopic browlift is the need for only local anesthesia with sedation.
If you have a low forehead or deep sagging that cannot be corrected without reducing excess skin, a traditional browlift, which uses a full or partial coronal incision across the crown of the head, within or at the hairline, may be in order.
