What is an endoscopic brow lift?
We want to take this opportunity to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about endoscopic brow lifts. An endoscopic brow lift is a surgical procedure that can elevate and properly position the eyebrows in order to provide a younger, more refreshed appearance. Compared to other facial surgery procedures, the endoscopic brow lift is a minimally invasive procedure.
What should I look for in a surgeon to perform my endoscopic brow lift?
Choosing the surgeon to perform your endoscopic brow lift is your most important decision. First, make sure that the surgeon is certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, or the American Board of Otolaryngology. This will ensure that your doctor has completed the proper training to safely conduct your procedure.
Am I a candidate for an endoscopic brow lift?
The best candidate for an endoscopic brow lift should be a reasonably healthy man or woman who has realistic expectations from the procedure. Of course, their motivation should be in improving the appearance of drooping or overhanging brows, and furrowed lines above the nose.
Is an endoscopic brow lift painful?
Most patients report only minor discomfort. Of course, pain medication can be prescribed to help keep any discomfort to a minimum. It is crucial that patients who receive sedation for the procedure, arrange for someone to drive them home after their procedure.
What can I expect after an endoscopic brow lift?
As mentioned above, patients typically experience minimal discomfort. You can expect some swelling, which can be minimized by keeping your head elevated for the first few days after surgery. Bruising and swelling will usually have disappeared within a week or so. Occasionally, patients may experience some temporary numbness.
