Endoscopic brow lifts
The patterns of lines that form on much of our face — especially our foreheads — are shaped by how we have most often used our facial muscles, the cumulative effect of decades of smiling and frowning. Many people want them unshaped. Brow lifts are a form of plastic surgery particularly suited to this. Modern medicine has studied the patterns of aging on the human face and learned how to reverse them. In addition to sagging down, skin also migrates a little to the center, so making the forehead look younger involves moving the skin to the sides as well as up.
By inserting an apparatus called an endoscope with a tiny light and tiny camera through an incision, a surgeon can look under your skin and study the attachment of skin and muscle. What sort of brow lift you will get depends on where the sagging is. A lateral is appropriate when the skin is sagging more around the temples than in the center. An asymmetric brow lift is when the skin is sagging more on one side than on another, and a full or a three-quarter brow lift are used when all parts of the forehead need to be lifted. After the surgery, you will need pain medication for one to two days. Swelling and bruising should be gone in no more than two weeks.
