Question: What is an Endoscopic Brow Lift and When Is It the Best Choice?
Answer: There are many methods for performing a browlift or forehead lift including an endoscopic browlift (through tiny incisions with the assistance of telescopes) , bicoronal forehead lift (extensive incision from ear to ear across the top of the head) and a tricophytic or hairline browlift. (hidden along the hairline. Each of these techniques achieves a similar result through the brow and the forehead in terms of smoothing of lines and gentle elevation of the brows.
The key difference is in how they affect your hairline. The Bicoronal (ear to ear) browlift elevates or pulls your hairline back, raising the frontal hairline by up to one inch. The Endoscopic lift has minimal effect of the position of the hairline. The tricophytic or hairline browlift can be used to adjust the hairline, usually lowering it to address a receding hairline or widow's peaks in the temporal hairline. An Endoscopic forehead lift is the best option when your goal is to maintain your hairline and have minimal incision and visible scarring postoperatively. I always caution my patients that they continue to age and that no procedure is long-lasting, however, if performed by a board certified, facial plastic surgeon, your results should be very long lasting.
