Facial wrinkles are bound to appear as one gets older. Vertical lines between the brows and horizontal lines on the forehead can even begin to appear when you are in your 30s. These lines form as a result of repeated muscle movements. Forehead creases can also appear sooner than you expect as a result of poor lifestyle and excessive smoking.

Sagging eyebrows are another aesthetic facial issue that can appear with age. Drooping eyebrows and wrinkles can add years to your face and make you look constantly tired or stressed.

The good news is that you’re not stuck with these signs of the aging process. You can choose advanced surgical options such as the endoscopic brow lift to address these issues, leaving you with rejuvenated brows and a more youthful-looking forehead.

The Endoscopic Brow Lift Technique

The brow lift, or forehead lift, is a procedure that can smooth out forehead creases and correct sagging eyebrows. The endoscopic brow lift is an advanced technique used more and more frequently to perform this surgery.

The endoscopic brow lift technique involves use of an endoscope, a small surgical tool with a light and a camera. It is connected to a monitor, and using this monitor, Dr. Enzer can view the tissues of the forehead in greater detail.

Dr. Enzer will insert the endoscope through very tiny incisions in the hairline, which are less than an inch. He will then use other small surgical instruments to adjust muscles and lift the brows. Through this process, the wrinkles are corrected and the skin is tightened. The eyebrows are repositioned for a more natural and youthful look. Once Dr. Enzer has corrected all wrinkles and the skin is taut again, the incisions are closed.

Why Choose Endoscopic Instead of Traditional?

Dr. Enzer helped to pioneer the endoscopic brow lift technique and is a well-regarded authority on the subject. He is an ideal choice for the procedure. He can also tell you if your particular aesthetic goals can be achieved using this technique.

Endoscopic procedures are less invasive than traditional surgical methods while still providing effective results. Not only are the incisions required for endoscopic procedures smaller than those of traditional procedures, less tissue is typically removed during the procedures.

Because the endoscopic technique is less invasive, it allows patients to heal and recover faster after the surgery. You may be able to resume your normal routine within a few days without experiencing any major discomfort.

After any oculofacial plastic surgery, some degree of swelling is common. Any swelling you may experience after your brow surgery will subside as your forehead heals. With an endoscopic procedure, there will be less swelling than there would be with a traditional procedure. The same is true for bruising and itching.

If you are in good health, there is no reason why you can’t opt for an endoscopic procedure for your brow lift. The shape of your forehead and the position of your hairline can make a difference when considering the right technique to use, so these factors may come into play.
