ENDOSCOPIC BROW LIFT
Years of sun exposure and gravity can cause the forehead to develop fine lines and wrinkles, often resulting in sagging of the brow area. These effects can make an individual look angry or tired even when they do not feel like it. At our Dallas-Fort Worth practice, our experienced facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Yadro Ducic, routinely performs endoscopic brow lift surgery.
The best candidates for a brow lift are those who are in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the procedure. Individuals that will benefit most from a brow lift have:
- Sagging or drooping of the eyebrows
- Horizontal lines or wrinkles across the forehead
- Frown lines or creases between the eyebrows
Endoscopic brow lift surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. After tiny incisions are made, an endoscope (long thin tube with a video camera on the end) is inserted under the scalp where tiny screws and staples are temporarily used in order to elevate the brows to higher level. By using an endoscope, Dr. Ducic can provide patients with less scarring and faster healing.
Pain, swelling, and numbness may be present, but these symptoms can be alleviated with prescribed medication. Patients can often return to work in 10-14 days and full activities in one month. The tiny screws and staples are removed 3 weeks after surgery.
YOUR NEW LOOK
Patients are usually very pleased with the youthful results that an endoscopic brow lift provides. The procedure offers long-lasting results and can give patients an increased sense of self-confidence.
