Brow Lift in WoodmereAging on the forehead can appear in a couple of significant ways: first, skin becomes looser, allowing lines to settle on your brow, and second, the eyebrows droop and lose their youthful arch. Dr. David Funt, a renowned plastic surgeon in Long Island, has multiple procedures for helping to reverse signs of aging at the top of the face. Although all patients have unique cosmetic needs, more and more he finds himself recommending endoscopic brow lift as the best way to rejuvenate the forehead. In this blog, he discusses why this approach is optimal for most patients.

How Endoscopic Brow Lift Is Different from Traditional Brow Lift

With traditional (AKA coronal) brow lift, Dr. Funt places one long incision across the hairline between the ears. Through this incision, Dr. Funt can remove excess fat and skin to give the brow a tighter appearance.

More recently, endoscopic brow lift has become even more popular than the traditional approach. With this technique, Dr. Funt makes a series of roughly five miniature incisions at the hairline. Instead of pulling the skin taut, he uses an endoscope (tiny camera-guided device) to tighten and reposition the muscles to achieve a lifting effect.

Why Endoscopic Brow Lift Is the Right Choice for Most Patients

The most obvious benefit is that endoscopic brow lift is a less invasive procedure. With smaller incisions, endoscopic brow lift offers a shorter recovery with a much lower complication rate. Having less scarring is also a benefit, especially if the hairline recedes later in the patient’s life.

Although coronal brow lift is still appropriate for patients with more advanced signs of aging, the gentler approach of endoscopic brow lift is very effective for patients with moderate aging. Dr. Funt can be very precise with tissue manipulation thanks to the camera, which allows him to create subtle and natural-looking rejuvenation.

While Botox and comparable neuromodulator injections may be an even “easier” way to reduce frown lines and elevate the eyebrows, the benefits last about three to four months before additional injections are necessary to maintain the results. For results that last several years without much downtime, endoscopic brow lift is the way to go.
