The forehead is a highly expressive part of our face, and the brow region can often show whether someone is surprised, frustrated, confused, or sad. Over time, the natural process of aging can make the lines and creases that form on the forehead a more permanent feature. A brow lift can help to soften and smooth these concerns, and it can also help to elevate the brow when skin and muscle have begun to descend.
Both a traditional brow lift and an endoscopic brow lift can elevate the forehead and rejuvenate this area. An endoscopic brow lift uses several short incisions rather than one long one, as in a coronal or traditional brow lift, to achieve its goal. Each incision is about one-inch long. The incisions allow Dr. Charles Perry to access the skin, muscle, and deeper tissues of the forehead using an endoscope—a small tool with a camera at the end. Dr. Perry can lift the tissues, elevate the brow, and smooth the lines through these small incisions, so a patient can experience reduced scarring and recovery.
At our practice, we are dedicated to using minimally invasive techniques whenever possible. If you’re considering a brow lift, talk to our medical team today to see if an endoscopic brow lift could provide you with improved results.
