Forehead lift is a generic term describing the area to be lifted. Endoscopic forehead lift describes the specific technique. In general a forehead lift can be performed via an open technique or endoscopically. The open technique can be performed through incisions above the brow, in the mid-forehead, at the hairline or behind the hairline. The latter three are all good techniques in the right patient, however the latter two have the disadvantage of creating more numbness and possibility for visible scarring. (In the right hands however they work great) We prefer an endoscopic technique for most of our female patients however because the technique offers the advantage of less scarring, less numbness and great results. The endoscopic technique involves making small incisions in the hair that are remote from each other. Through the incisions special curved instruments are passed that allow the brow to be elevated and held in position. There are examples of many endoscopic browlifts as well as some other techniques (in men) on the website.
