What exactly is an endoscopic browlift and how is it different from a regular brow lift or forehead lift?
An endoscopic browlift utilizes smaller incisions confined to the hair and specialized instruments to elevate the forehead through these small incisions. This results in a shorter recovery time, less numbness and less scarring. A “regular” or open browlift is performed by placing an incision either in the mid-forehead, at the hairline or behind the hairline. It is an effective procedure and can be appropriate in the right patient. We perform most of our browlifts endoscopically.
