Brow Lift on Long Island, NY

Offices in Nassau County, NY

A brow lift can revitalize a drooping or lined forehead, helping you to look less angry, sad or tired. Using minimally invasive (endoscopic) methods, a brow lift involves the removal or alteration of the muscles above the eyes to smooth lines and raise the eyebrows for a more youthful appearance. The procedure is often combined with other operations such as blepharoplasty and facelift to improve the look of the eyes and other areas of the face.

Endoscopic Brow Lift Procedure Details

In an endoscopic brow lift, the patient’s hair is tied back and Dr. Funt makes three to five short incisions (less than an inch long) behind the hairline. The endoscope is placed in one one of these incisions so he can see beneath the skin without having to make a large incision, while he lifts the skin and adjusts tissues through the other.

Dr. Funt uses the endotine forehead device instead of non-absorbable sutures in a brow lift. It lifts the brow tissues using several points of contact instead of only one as with sutures or screws. Once implanted, the device holds the lifted tissues in place as they complete the process of reattaching to the scalp. The device is then absorbed into the body until it is completely dissolved. Other advantages of the endotine device are that it can be adjusted, it eliminates the need for metal screws in the scalp, does not cause hair loss by pinching hair follicles, does not need to be removed.

Brow Lift Recovery

Endoscopic surgery patients may experience some numbness, discomfort and swelling around the incisions, though there is less itching than with traditional surgery. Patients will be on their feet and able to wash their hair in a day or two, and many patients return to work in 7-10 days or less. Swelling and bruising should fade by the third week. Sleeping with the head elevated and using cold compresses will reduce swelling and discomfort over the first few days. Some patients can feel the ​​​​​​​endotine device under the skin and the area may be sensitive, but this feeling will fade as the device is absorbed into the body.


What Is the Difference Between Brow Lift and Endoscopic Brow Lift?

Brow Lift Long Island NYA traditional brow lift (also known as coronal brow lift) requires a single long incision, whereas with endoscopic brow lift, Dr. Funt makes a series of tiny incisions concealed within the patient’s hairline. Through these small incisions, Dr. Funt uses an endoscope (a microscopic camera with a light) that guides his surgical implements to make the necessary changes to the skin and muscles, thus avoiding the need for the longer incision.

Dr. Funt prefers this approach because he can largely replicate the results of traditional brow lift with less scarring and reduced complication risks.

What Are the Benefits of Brow Lift?

Brow lift helps to:

  • Elevate the eyebrows and restore a youthful arch
  • Smooth forehead skin and diminish or eliminate lines by removing excess skin
  • Improve the ability of the upper eyelids to open more completely
  • Brighten the perceived mood of the patient by minimizing the angry expression that a drooping forehead often creates

How Do You Prepare for Brow Lift?

To find out if you are a good candidate for endoscopic brow lift, schedule a consultation with Dr. Funt. He can review your medical history and confirm that the signs of aging on our forehead can be cosmetically improved with the procedure. Plastic surgery is not recommended for smokers since smoking prolongs recovery. If you are currently a smoker, quit well in advance of your surgery.

How Long Do Brow Lifts Last?

Endoscopic brow lift results usually last about seven to 10 years. Unfortunately, surgery cannot stop the aging process permanently, so eventually the eyebrows start to droop again. As long as you remain a good candidate for this less invasive procedure, you may decide to repeat it in the future.

To extend the amount of time you enjoy your brow lift, use moisturizer as part of a skin care routine. Also, wear sunscreen on your forehead when outdoors to avoid sun damage from UV rays.

Does Brow Lift Hurt?

No, Dr. Funt provides you with local anesthesia to keep your forehead numb during your procedure. You may notice some lingering discomfort after your surgery, but not much, given the less-invasive techniques employed with endoscopic brow lift. Pain medication should be sufficient for managing your comfort.

How Long Does Brow Lift Take to Heal?

Endoscopic Brow Lift WoodmereBecause of its less invasive nature, endoscopic brow lift only requires about one week of downtime before you can resume work and other normal activities. (However, all patients recover at their own pace, so your healing may be different.) Most of the bruising and swelling subsides in this same time span.

Is Brow Lift Better Than Botox?

Botox is also effective at elevating the eyebrows and reducing forehead lines and is therefore also an option if you would prefer to avoid surgery. Botox is temporary, however, lasting only about three to four months. This means that you must return for periodic injections to maintain your results. Given the less invasive approach taken with endoscopic brow lift — and the brief recovery involved — you may decide that this procedure is worthwhile, even if you ordinarily would not choose surgery.
