A minimally invasive surgery, endoscopic brow lift involves the raising of sagging eyebrows and the smoothing of wrinkles in the forehead. The skin is detached from underlying tissue, and then excess skin is removed before underlying muscle is manipulated and the skin is stitched back together. This procedure is performed using a few small incisions located along the hairline.
Also Known As:

- Endoscopic foreheadplasty
- Eyebrow lift
- Eyebrow surgery
- Upper face lift
Conditions Treated with an Endoscopic Brow Lift:
An endoscopic brow lift may be used in cases of drooping eyebrows, wrinkles, facial trauma and congenital birth defects.
Anti-aging skincare is a non-surgical alternative to an endoscopic brow lift. Surgical alternatives to the procedure include open brow lift, face lift, thread lift, dermabrasion, microdermabrasion, chemical skin peel, laser skin resurfacing and collagen replacement therapy.
Anesthesia with an Endoscopic Brow Lift:
An endoscopic brow lift is performed under general anesthesia, which means that the patient is asleep and completely unaware during the procedure.
Potential Complications from an Endoscopic Brow Lift:
Possible risks following an endoscopic brow lift include swelling, bruising, facial paralysis, infection, bleeding and a negative reaction to the anesthesia.
Prognosis after an Endoscopic Brow Lift:
The prognosis for a positive end result following an endoscopic brow lift is good. However, the face is still subject to the normal aging process.
Recovery from an Endoscopic Brow Lift:
Total recovery from an endoscopic brow lift takes two to four weeks.
