Depending on the patient's needs, Dr. Potter will use either a standard brow lift or an endoscopic brow lift. The standard approach remains the coronal lift, in which an incision is made across the top of the forehead from ear to ear. The incision is hidden behind the hair line. If brow lift surgery is performed in conjunction with a facelift, the incisions for the two procedures are connected in the hair line.
An endoscopic brow lift may be appropriate for younger patients who require only mild facial rejuvenation. Because the endoscopic brow lift requires only a few tiny incisions, the recovery period is much shorter for this surgical approach. During an endoscopic brow lift, Dr. Potter can address the overactive muscles in the forehead that cause wrinkles and lines to appear.
For patients whose furrowed brows cause them to appear angry, sad, or tired much of the time, brow lift is an excellent facial rejuvenation treatment. Contact Graystone Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery to schedule a consultation.
