Everyone wants to look younger, but the key to looking great is to make rejuvenation look natural and effortless. That’s hard to do when you’re worried that cosmetic treatments and plastic surgery will make you look “overdone” or unnatural. The good news is that over the last few decades, the industry has moved toward more natural, subtle results and a range of gentler options for facial rejuvenation. Today, for many procedures, no one should be able to tell you “had work done” unless you choose to share your secret. The endoscopic brow lift is one of the new generation of procedures that can help you address early signs of aging—and look all-natural while doing so. But what is an endoscopic brow lift, and how can it help you look younger and more confident?

What is the Endoscopic Brow Lift?

A brow lift is a gentle outpatient procedure performed to lift a sagging brow, which is a common early sign of aging. The endoscopic brow lift technique involves the use of a small telescope with a camera on the end. This is used to help the surgeon achieve excellent visibility and control, but through smaller incisions than those of a traditional brow lift technique. This leads to a more natural appearance and a shorter recovery time.

What Can it Help With?

The brow lift does just what the name says: it elevates a sagging brow to a more youthful position. As we age, the skin, muscles, and fat of the face begin to descend on the face, resulting in a heavy, tired, and sometimes even angry expression. A brow lift can rejuvenate the brow and improve resting expression for a fresher, more youthful appearance. The endoscopic brow lift is often combined with treatments such as Botox to address creases in the forehead, as these wrinkles will not be addressed with the brow lift procedure alone.

What About Recovery?

The browlift recovery process is fairly brief and straightforward. Patients can expect swelling and bruising, as with any procedure. Dressings will be put in place for 24 hours, and patients should be prepared to take about 10 days off of work for recovery. Stitches and staples are removed at one week following the procedure. While there will be some discomfort, prescribed pain medication typically controls this well. Strenuous activity must be postponed for several weeks following the procedure.

Will it Really Look Natural?

Unsure of how natural plastic surgery can look? It’s helpful to take a look at as many before and after photos as you can to get a comprehensive picture of how natural the results can look from endoscopic browlift, and get a realistic idea of what to expect from the procedure.

Is an Endoscopic Brow Lift Right For Me?

If you’re not sure whether an endoscopic browlift is right for you, that’s just fine! Plastic surgery is a big decision, and it makes sense to take your time and make the decision that is right for you. A qualified facial plastic surgery can also help by assessing your candidacy and giving advice on suggested rejuvenation procedures.

Non-Surgical Alternatives for Facial Rejuvenation

If you’re not crazy about the idea of surgery, there are other options for facial rejuvenation. Treatments are available for addressing everything from sagging skin (Exilis radiofrequency treatments) to deep furrows in the brow (Botox). You and your surgeon will come up with a customized treatment plan that works for you and your needs.
