What Is an Endoscopic Browlift?

What is an endoscopic brow lift?One of the most popular ways to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and drooping skin on the forehead, browlift surgery offers a number of anti-aging benefits for qualified candidates. If you’re considering this procedure to help you achieve your cosmetic goals, a less invasive endoscopic browlift from our extensively trained plastic surgeon, Dr. Samuel M. Sohn, may provide the same desirable results with less downtime and less noticeable incisions.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Sohn will discuss your desired aesthetic outcome and examine your anatomic indicators to determine if endoscopic browlift could help to achieve your goals. Endoscopic browlift differs from the traditional coronal or hairline browlift in several ways. This minimally invasive technique utilizes a specialized instrument combined with a camera to help visualize the brow lift while requiring only a few small incisions, which will be well concealed by the hairline. No skin will be removed during this process; instead, the skin, fat, and muscle tissues will be elevated to a more youthful level to reduce creases and skin laxity. If you have significant excess skin, a high forehead, or prefer more dramatic results, a coronal or hairline browlift technique may be a better option, also available from our practice.

In addition to requiring fewer incisions and thus resulting in less visible scars, the recovery period following endoscopic browlift surgery typically will be shorter. There are pros and cons to both types of browlift approaches, and it’s important to note that an endoscopic technique may be more expensive. Furthermore, certain conditions may restrict the type of procedure you should receive, such as a receding hairline or thinning hair or if you have a high forehead. Our board-certified plastic surgeons will recommend the best method for your unique needs and goals.
