Endoscopic Brow Lift
When men and women from Central Coast communities like San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Santa Maria contact a plastic surgeon for facial rejuvenation, it's very common for them to be concerned about a heavy feeling of the eyelids and brows. These patients often state, "People keep telling me that I look tired, sad, or even angry." They may also notice excess skin folds of the upper lids, perhaps even severe enough to reach down to the level of their eyelashes.

Brow Lift for San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Santa Maria Patients
Over time, the forehead and brow region descend causing excess skin to accumulate around the nasal bridge and in the eyelid area, particularly in the outer region of the eyelid. Many patients compensate for this by unconsciously over elevating their brows, causing deep horizontal forehead wrinkles to form. Although eyelid surgery may be beneficial, a brow lift may yield a superior aesthetic outcome by restoring the brows to a more youthful position. The outcome is typically a long-lasting, more rested appearance with softening of the lines in the forehead and between the eyes.
Brow lift surgery elevates the descended tissues and smoothes the forehead by relaxing muscles which tend to pull the brows down such as those in the frown area and outer brows. This improves the appearance of the eyelids, the nasal bridge, frown lines and "crows feet."
As opposed to older procedures such as the coronal brow lift, which required very large incisions in the scalp, the endoscopic brow lift utilizes much smaller, cosmetically pleasing incisions which are well camouflaged just behind the hairline. It therefore reduces recovery time and risks such as hair loss which were common with the older procedures. Endoscopes are narrow fiber-optic viewing scopes which are placed through small incisions. These allow the surgeon to visualize fine instruments which are used to perform the procedure.
Patients generally enjoy a fairly quick recovery following an initial period of swelling which is usually mostly resolved within about ten days. Brow lifts are often combined with other cosmetic procedures such as eyelid surgery, face lift, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels.
