Endoscopic vs. Traditional Brow Lift: What You Need to Know

Sagging brows and droopy eyelids are just some of the telltale signs of aging, and if you are starting to become self-conscious about those deeper lines or sagging skin along the forehead, consider the benefits of a brow lift. Brow lift surgery in LA is very effective for freshening up your look by lifting and tightening the skin around the forehead. We can perform an endoscopic or an open brow lift, depending on the extent of sagging and other factors. Here’s a closer look at these two anti-aging procedures:

The Endoscopic Brow Lift in LA

The endoscopic brow lift is a less-invasive technique than traditional brow lift surgery and involves making a series of small incisions along the hairline instead of one long incision. We use a small telescopic camera and a set of surgical instruments to address certain areas of the forehead and to manipulate the corrugator muscles that may be creating vertical lines between the brows.

Drs. Lee, Shifren and Ho use the ENDOTINE device to affix the forehead tissue to the bone so that we end up with a very natural-looking results. One of the biggest benefits of the endoscopic brow lift is that there is minimal scarring involved, and the procedure has a very fast recovery time. It is well-suited for patients that only need minor work done around the forehead and brow area.

Traditional Brow Lift Surgery

Traditional brow lift surgery, also known as an open Brow Lift in LA, may be your best option when there is excessive drooping of the brows and excess skin around the forehead and brows. In this procedure, the surgeon will make an incision all the way across the top of the head or just behind your hairline, and we can lengthen or shorten the forehead if necessary.

After repositioning the forehead and removing excess skin, the skin is stretched out to create a very smooth look. We do use the ENDOTINE device in this procedure to reposition the tissues effectively.

If you are concerned about those worry lines, deep lines along the forehead, and sagging or drooping brows, you may be a good candidate for a brow lift. Schedule your brow lift consultation with Dr. Lee today.
