Many of our satisfied customers come to Garlich Facial Plastics seeking one of our facial surgeries in hopes to counteract the effects of aging. The aging process can bring about many things, including a gradual or severe descent of the eyebrows over the eyes. This brow descent, or ptosis, can give the appearance of scowling, or perhaps even a fatigued or severe look. The forehead lift, or more appropriately, the brow lift, repositions the eyebrows to a more aesthetically appealing position.

Historically, this procedure was performed with incisions that stretched across the scalp from one ear to the other however, most patients with a normal or low set hairline are ideal candidates for an endoscopic brow lift that is performed through three or four incisions in the hairline that are neither noticeable nor uncomfortable. For those patients with a high or receding hairline, the endoscopic technique can be used with a small skin excision to prevent further heightening of the hairline.

The endoscopic brow lift is performed under light anesthesia. Patients may experience a slight headache in the first 12-24 hours which is easily treated with pain relievers, and will have some swelling and bruising of the brow and upper eyelids for 48-72 hours. After 72 hours, the patient can return to a majority of daily activities.

If you're interested in having a browlift, or any of our other surgeries, please contact us today! We'd love to help you take the next step in the process.
