A brow lift, otherwise known as a forehead lift, has become a common plastic surgery procedure for those wishing to correct a heavy brow that causes a tired, listless appearance, as well as to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The brow lift is a 100 year old surgical technique that has evolved into a 21st century minimally invasive procedure, enabling patients to correct the signs of aging in the forehead area. Details of a Brow Lift Procedure In today’s medically advanced world, the brow lift procedure has far outgrown the original lengthy forehead incision and skin pull that resulted in an artificial appearance, or “surprised look.” Today’s procedure, performed by Dr. Fata, achieves a natural result and minimizes scarring due to the tiny incisions involved in a practice known as endoscopic surgery. An endoscopic brow lift is achieved by inserting an endoscope, or surgical system involving surgical telescopes and a camera, into several small insertions in the scalp. These various approaches allow the surgeon greater movement and visibility while gently arching the forehead skin to regain a youthful appearance. Endoscopic brow lifts leave minimal scaring and require two weeks or less recovery time, providing effective results for nominal inconvenience.
