How are Endoscopic Browlifts Performed?
Endoscopic Browlifts, also known as minimal-scar browlifts, are performed using a fiber optic lens that is attached to a camera. It is inserted through half-inch incisions placed in the hairline.

The procedure is viewed on the television monitor, allowing the surgeon to perform the surgery externally. Endoscopic browlifts are especially useful with younger patients, who do not need excess skin removed. Loss of sensation and/or hair at the incision site is minimized. Endoscopics can significantly reduce frown lines in between the eyes. It is frequently performed in conjunction with blepharoplasty, upper eyelid surgery, for optimal results.
