My eyebrows seem to have dropped lower. I don’t know how else to explain it. They overshadow my eyes. I would like a brow lift to lift up the eyebrows as well as get rid of my horizontal forehead wrinkles. I have read about the endoscopic brow lift. I understand that the incision is in the hairline, but what happens during the procedure after that? What type of sedation is generally used?
The endoscopic brow lift is an excellent procedure to address the issues you bring up. In this procedure, small incisions are made behind the hairline and a small scope called an endoscope is inserted into the opening to watch while we elevate the forehead skin and move it upward a short distance in the direction of the scalp/top of the head. The skin and brow are then secured in the elevated position with sutures and the small incisions in the scalp are then closed. We use either IV sedation or general anesthesia, to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
