Endoscopic Forehead & Browlift
We perform Brow and Forehead Lifts to raise eyebrows and reduce ridges and furrows on the forehead, thus creating a smoother, more youthful appearance. This procedure can be performed in conjunction with other surgeries.
Newer techniques now allow us to perform Forehead Lifting through small incisions in the scalp by using an Endoscope and specialized instruments. This accelerates the healing process.
ENDOSCOPIC BROW LIFT PROCEDURE
Done under local anaesthesia with sedatives or general anaesthesia. Through two small incisions within the hair line endoscope and instruments are inserted and the peristeum skipped. The forehead muscle insertions are separated and the brow suspended using sutures. Two sutures or staples are used to close incision.
RECOVERY: WHAT TO EXPECT
Antibiotics may be prescribed for several days following surgery. Sutures / staples are generally removed within one week. Swelling and some bruising may occur, they should subside within a few weeks. Our doctors will prescribe ice compresses and eye exercises to reduce swelling and regain mobility. Women will be allowed to use eye cosmetics two weeks after surgery. You can proceed with your normal daily activities within 1-2 weeks. A final evaluation may occur within several months from the initial surgical procedure.
