The endoscopic browlift is one of the two major techniques used by plastic surgeons. The other technique is the coronal browlift
. To begin an endoscopic browlift, your plastic surgeon will make several tiny incisions in the scalp. He/she will then insert the endoscopic instrument to provide a visual map. The endoscope displays an image on a screen so your plastic surgeon can look under your skin without having to make a large incision. This enables your surgeon to see inside the forehead and eyebrows.
Once your surgeon has a clear picture, he will insert another instrument. This instrument lifts the skin from the bone and is able to remove excess muscle, skin or fat. Your surgeon will do whatever work is necessary using the endoscopic instruments. He may insert temporary screws or sutures to hold the position of the forehead and eyebrows during healing. He will then stitch or clip the incisions and bandage the wounds. Your plastic surgeon will remove the stitches/clips within a week of the surgery. The temporary screws or sutures will be removed in approximately two weeks.
Endoscopic brow lifts typically result in shorter recovery periods than coronal brow lifts due to the smaller incisions required.
