The muscles in your forehead are constantly getting a good workout. Since they’re responsible for all your facial expressions, they’re also prone to lines and wrinkles. At Noble Cosmetic Surgery in Plano, Texas, an endoscopic brow lift can bring sagging eyebrows back to a perky position. Dr. Patrick Obasi and his team specialize in cosmetic procedures for men and women that take years off your face.
Endoscopic Brow Lift Q & A
What are the benefits of an endoscopic brow lift?
The main benefit of a brow lift is that it lightens the look of a heavy, sagging lower forehead ― which can sometimes make you look tired or angry. The procedure also helps to eliminate forehead wrinkles and deep furrows in the center of the brows.
After a successful brow lift, most patients look brighter and more alert, their eyes are more visible, and they may appear to have a happier resting facial expression, which makes them more approachable and confident.
With this type of procedure, the risk of side effects is minimal, and recovery is fast. Scars are tiny and hidden in the hair line. Results can last ten years or more.
How is a brow lift procedure performed?
Dr. Obasi’s main goal with the brow lift procedure is to achieve the results you’d like by repositioning the brow line. The procedure is performed in-house, at our sterile surgery center. It typically takes one to three hours to complete these steps:
- Dr. Obasi administers an IV sedation to help you relax and numbs your forehead
- He makes a few small incisions at the hairline
- He inserts an endoscope – – a tiny camera – – to see under the skin via a live feed
- Using special instruments, he lifts your forehead skin and adjusts underlying muscles
- If necessary, Dr. Obasi removes excess skin and closes your incisions with sutures
What is recovery like?
Most patients have some residual swelling and bruising, but return to normal activities within two weeks.
You may need to take prescription pain medication for a few days, and Dr. Obasi might also advise you to limit or avoid certain activities until you’re fully healed.
While an endoscopic brow lift procedure delivers long-lasting results, gravity pulls on the skin over time, which is normal with age. You can maintain the results of your brow lift by staying healthy and practicing good skincare habits. This will ensure you enjoy your refreshed, pleasant, and youthful appearance for years to come.
