Endoscopic Brow Lifts – By Leaps and Bounds
- Posted on: Oct 14 2020
An endoscopic brow lift is a far cry from the old-style coronal brow lifts. The classic coronal brow lifts would often leave people with a permanently surprised expression, and a large and unsightly scar. Now, thanks to modern surgical techniques, the endoscopic brow lift is much less invasive and more effective, giving you completely natural-looking results!
A brow lift (also called a forehead lift) is a surgical procedure that can be performed independently or as a part of an upper and lower eyelid lift, or even at the same time as a facelift. The purpose of a brow lift is to rejuvenate the forehead, erase horizontal or vertical wrinkles and lines, raise sagging skin, and give a more youthful and rested appearance.
- A brow lift raises drooping eyebrows, smoothes deep furrows & rejuvenates the face.
- Performed endoscopically, this technique greatly reducing incision size and minimizes recovery time.
- Incisions are hidden behind the hairline, so scarring is virtually undetectable.
- Patients typically return to work 1 week after surgery.
Surgical Techniques Are Most Important
Beautiful, natural results with brow lift surgery require a cosmetic surgeon with a thorough knowledge of facial anatomy and a keen eye for aesthetic detail. Just as important is the ability to adjust one’s surgical techniques to create results that respect a patient’s ethnicity, age, gender, and unique facial features.
During your endoscopic brow lift surgery, Dr. Flaharty and Dr. Padilla will make four tiny incisions around the hairline, effectively hiding any scars, and then use an small surgical camera called an endoscope to carefully navigate and modify the anatomy of the brow in the least invasive way possible. This minimally invasive technique provides maximal outcomes, resulting in a more relaxed-looking forehead. The result of a well-done brow lift is a more alert, “awake” appearance. People will know something is different but may not know quite what it is — expect them to ask whether you’re doing your hair differently or to tell you that you look well rested!
Dr. Flaharty and Dr. Padilla have completed the highest level of advanced training in eyelid orbit, tear duct, facial cosmetic and facial reconstructive surgery. They are both members of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, an elite group of less than 700 highly trained ophthalmologists who have completed specialty fellowships and have passed rigorous examinations. Dr. Flaharty, has been in private practice in southwest Florida for 20 years and has performed more than 20,000 facial procedures.
Will the results look and feel natural?
Don’t worry! Brow lifts have come a long way from the early days, when the incision was made across the forehead. Dr. Flaharty and Dr. Padilla’s expertise in facial cosmetic surgery make them uniquely qualified to perform brow lifts that are minimally invasive, and provide great results.
