Brow Lift – Facial Surgery

The endoscopic brow lift is a minimally invasive surgery that reduces the appearance of lines in the forehead and gives the orbit (the eye socket) a more open, awake appearance. The brow is typically elevated to a natural degree, and the "deer in the headlights" look of an old fashioned open browlift is avoided.  Other types of browlifts, including open lifts and trans-blepharoplasty browlifts (through the upper eyelid during a blepharoplasty) are done, depending on the pattern of aging of the brow.

During the endobrow lift procedure, Dr. MacKenzie inserts a small camera, or endoscope, through small incisions he has made behind the hairline. He then lifts the skin and soft tissues of the brow away from the underlying bone and tightens the underlying tissue.  Usually, an internal Coapt Endotine device is used on each side to secure the tissues in the elevated position until they are healed.  This device ultimately dissolves and dissapears.

If you are interested in the endoscopic brow lift, contact the office of Dr. Mackenzie today to schedule a brow lift consultation.
