A 3/4 Brow Lift Surgery

A ¾ brow lift surgery is a surgical technique Dr. Freeman may recommend. It is based on such factors 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.

A ¾ 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 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 about 8% of brow patients choose this additional step.   Should you be one of those patients, the completion upper lid blepharoplasty is usually done under local anesthesia and bruising is minimal.

Excess height of the hairline can also be addressed during an endoscopic brow lift. This would require a combination of a trichophilic incision combined with the endoscope. Should you be interested in lowering your hairline, discuss it with Dr. Freeman during your consultation. Hairline height will remain relatively unchanged otherwise.

A 3/4 brow lift surgery is performed in patients with sagging of the lateral brow as well as significant medical rotation of the brow. Assuming that they also have normal skin thickness and not unusually strong brow depressors.
