Aggressive Lateral Brow Lift

Dr. Freeman is Featured In

An aggressive lateral brow lift is a surgical technique that Dr. Freeman recommends depending on factors such as the position of the eyebrows,  the thickness of the patient’s skin, and the strength of their brow depressors. The amount of excess upper eyelid skin will be reduced by the endoscopic brow lift.

The Segmental Endoscopic Brow Lift was invented by Dr. Freeman and was published in 2021. The article summarizes his over 15 years of experience using this approach. With this approach each patient’s degree of aging of the brow is determined before surgery and they are put in one of five different degrees of aging of the forehead. Dr Freeman will then perform one of five different Endoscopic Brow Lifts based on the degree of aging of the forehead of each patient.

An aggressive lateral brow lift surgery is one of the brow lift choices. Dr. Freeman chooses between endoscopic brow lifts and uses a Segmental Endoscopic Brow Lift approach so that the results fit each person, individually.

The Segmental Endoscopic Brow Lift, invented by Dr. Freeman creates more predictable and natural-looking results with a high satisfaction rate.

Some patients elect to have a completion upper lid blepharoplasty several months after their brow lift. In Dr. Freeman’s experience, only 8% of brow patients elect to take this stop. Should you be one of those patients, a completion upper lid blepharoplasty is usually done under local anesthesia and bruising is minimal.

Excess height of the hairline can also be addressed during a segmental endoscopic brow lift. However, this would require a combination of a trichophilic incision combined with the endoscope. Should you feel that you would be interested in lowering your hairline, discuss it with Dr. Freeman during your consultation.  Hairline height will remain relatively unchanged otherwise. Aggressive lateral brow lift patients have thicker skin and are otherwise similar to lateral brow lift patients.
