With aging and the forces of gravity, the eyebrows start to descend, leading to drooping in the upper eyelids. Horizontal creases that form on the forehead and vertical lines between the eyebrows can make a person appear angry, stressed, or unapproachable.
At Cara Plastic Surgery & Laser Center, we perform endoscopic brow lift surgery in Los Angeles and Orange County. In the hands of Dr. Kahng, this procedure can create a refreshed, more youthful appearance of the upper third of the face.
What Is Endoscopic Brow Lift Surgery?
A brow lift is a surgical procedure performed to rejuvenate the face above the eyes. The surgeon repositions underlying muscles and tissues of the forehead to correct a heavily creased or sagging brow, smooth deep furrows in the forehead, and create more youthful upper face contours. Endoscopic brow lift surgery (also known as endobrow lift) is a less invasive procedure performed with a scope through tiny incisions.
During a typical brow lift procedure, a surgeon makes incisions, then works through these incisions to lift and reposition the muscles and tissues of the forehead. This smooths lines and wrinkles and rejuvenates the upper part of the face, taking years off.
Dr. Kahng uses endoscopic brow lift surgery to achieve these same results, but the procedure is less invasive. It is performed with a scope through tiny incisions. This surgery reverses the signs of age by tightening loose skin and tissue and elevating your forehead. The brow is restored and lifted, and frown lines disappear, giving the face a lighter, more youthful and pleasant appearance.
How Is Endoscopic Brow Lift Surgery Performed?
The first step is a thorough consultation with Dr. Kahng to discuss your concerns, aesthetic goals, medical history and expectations. You will have a chance to go over any and all questions and hear the details of the procedure.
Once the surgery begins, you will be placed under general anesthesia by an expert anesthesiologist. Dr. Kahng will then make a series of very short incisions just behind the hairline. An endoscope (a thin, lighted, optical instrument) is inserted through the incisions, which makes it possible to view the treatment area on a monitor.
Through the incisions, Dr. Kahng will use extremely small surgical instruments to:
- Lift underlying tissue
- Reposition muscles of the forehead
- Create a natural-looking, fresher, more youthful brow and upper face appearance
Who Is a Good Candidate for an Endoscopic Brow Lift?
Many people in their 40s and 50s make the decision to undergo brow lift surgery in Los Angeles. This treatment may also benefit younger and older patients. Men and women who fit the following criteria may be good candidates:
- Heavy upper eyelids
- Drooping brows
- Horizontal lines on the forehead
- Deep frown lines or furrows between the brows
- An angry, tired appearance of the upper face
- Droopy or sagging skin on the brow
- Older or tired look on the face
What Is Recovery Like after BrowLift Surgery?
Your face will look younger and more relaxed after the procedure, but you can expect post-surgical bruising and swelling that will last for approximately 10 to 14 days. We will prescribe medications to control discomfort while you are healing.
Keep your head elevated with pillows to help to minimize swelling. After 10 to 14 days, Dr. Kahng will remove your sutures. At that time, you will likely be able to return to work or your other usual activities.
Avoid strenuous activities for 3-4 weeks or more after the procedure.
How Long Will The Results of a Brow Lift Last?
After your procedure, your forehead will appear naturally smoother and free of wrinkles, and your eyebrows will be more youthfully positioned for a brighter, more appealing look. These results are very long lasting, allowing you to enjoy the smooth, rejuvenated look you want for up to ten years.
