Endoscopic Brow / Forehead Lift
A forehead lift can be a great option for patients battling sagging eyebrows or deep furrows between the eyes. This procedure is frequently performed in association with an upper eyelid blepharoplasty to elevate the eyebrows and reduce the amount of skin that needs to be removed from the upper eyelids. Several small incisions are made behind the hairline and an endoscope (small camera) is used for visualization while repositioning the muscles that produce the frown lines and shifting the eyebrows to a higher level. This particular procedure is elective and not typically covered by insurance. To see before and after photos, please visit our Before & After Photo Gallery.
Before & After: Endoscopic Brow Lift & Upper Lid Blepharoplasty
Direct Brow Lift
A direct brow lift is a procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes. The procedure corrects drooping or sagging eyebrows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a person appear angry, sad or tired. Brow lift surgery works by removing tissue that causes the brow to droop, allowing the brow lift to create a smoother looking forehead. This is accomplished by making a small incision above the brow hairs. The incision is camouflaged in the wrinkle lines above the brow or within the brow hairs itself. A Direct Brow Lift can be done for cosmetic or medical reasons, and may be billable to the insurance company.
Internal Brow Lift
This brow lift technique (sometimes referred to as an Internal Brow Pexy) works by utilizing an incision in the eyelid crease and tunneling underneath the eyebrow to secure the brow in an elevated position. This procedure enhances the brow height while minimizing external scarring. This procedure is also done for both medical and cosmetic purposes, so is potentially billable to the insurance company.
