Before and After
Candidates for Brow Lift Surgery
It’s no secret that aging can cause lines and wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyebrows. You may be a good candidate for a brow lift if you’re noticing:
- Laxity in your skin that has caused your brow to “droop,”, overlapping your upper eyelids
- The appearance of “crow’s feet” between your eyebrows
- Frown lines in your forehead
The procedural method used by Dr. Wooten is called an endoscopic brow lift.
The endoscopic lift begins by making 3 small vertical incisions of about 2 centimeters in length above your forehead, and beyond the hairline. Two curved incisions are then made near your temples, again beyond the hairline. Tiny endoscopes attached to cameras are placed underneath the incision openings. These cameras allow Dr. Wooten to see the underlying muscle and tissue of the forehead. The forehead tissues are then lifted with special prying instruments, releasing creases, frown lines that occur on the upper regions of your face. The advantages of the minimally invasive endoscopic lift are:
- A short recovery period
- No visible scars
- Natural-looking results
Brow Lift Recovery
Brow lifts are short procedures with a relatively minimal recovery period. The best way to maintain your rejuvenated appearance is to minimize sun damage to your skin by consistently using an effective sunscreen and by maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Other procedures like fillers, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), or facelifts are often combined with the brow lift and are performed at the same time to improve the overall result.
