Have you ever been asked if you’re feeling tired or angry, when you actually feel rested and in good spirits? If so, aging might have taken its toll and your brows have fallen. A lowered brow position can make you look drowsy or irritated. As the brow descends, it creates excess skin over the eyelid, making eyes look puffy and older.
What is a brow lift?
A brow lift, also called a forehead lift, surgically corrects drooping eyebrows and softens worried or angry expressions resulting from frown lines. The result is a more youthful, relaxed and refreshed appearance.
What is an Endotine Brow Lift?
An Endotine brow lift uses an Endotine forehead implant that gives surgeons the ability to lift tissue from small incisions along your hairline, which raises the brows to a natural position and softens creases between the eyebrows and along the forehead.
How long does the procedure take?
This procedure typically takes between one and two hours and is usually performed in the surgeon’s office-based facility or an outpatient surgery center under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.
More on Endoscope Technology
Recent advances in the use of endoscope technology (keyhole surgery), has meant that it is now possible to perform an endoscopic brow lift. The new endoscopic facelift uses 4-5 mm incisions in the scalp and temple region and an endoscope (small camera with a light source attached) to perform the necessary surgery. The biggest benefit is minimal or no scarring with only a very minimal chance of any permanent numbness. Also, because the camera gives a full vision, the surgeon can use several points of adjustment from different angles, enabling precise management of the brow’s positioning and alignment. This degree of control means the method is also suitable for correcting asymmetric eyebrows, improving the shape of congenitally low eyebrows or treating pathological drooping foreheads from facial palsy. It can also be performed without raising the hairline. Of course, it is crucial that the surgeon performing the procedure is highly skilled to ensure the expected results are achieved and safeguard against any complications.
The Endoscopic Endotine keyhole Browlift is by far the best method of choice because it uses a sutureless, bioabsorbable implant that dissolves after 9 months, which is far greater than the time it takes for you to heal, and it creates a three-dimensional zone of fixation that sutures cannot mimic. In the hands of a highly-skilled surgeon, the procedure can give a much more youthful appearance and fresh look to the upper face.
Am I an Endotine brow-lift candidate?
If you have sagging eyebrows that create a tired, angry or sad appearance, deep horizontal creases across your forehead, or frown lines or furrows between your eyebrows, you may be a candidate for an endoscopic brow lift.
To get a glimpse of the potential results, you can try a simple test on your own. Place your fingertips at the outer edges of your eyebrows and gently raise the skin upwards. This will give you a good indication of what the procedure might do for your appearance. Of course, the best way to determine if an endoscopic brow lift is right for you is by a thorough consultation with your plastic surgeon.

Why Choose Apex for your Endotine Brow Lift
Although the procedure is minimally invasive and can produce outstanding results, the cosmetic surgeon performing the procedure must fully understand and follow the proper aesthetics of facial beauty. When these aesthetic principles are ignored, the brows can be elevated in the wrong position or amount giving the face a surprised or startled appearance. So, it is imperative that a patient has complete trust in their doctor’s competence, skill, and expertise to ensure that the procedure will meet their expectations.
At Apex, you can be confident that the board-certified surgeons taking care of you are highly skilled, extremely experienced and that they are assisted by a solid and qualified staff in an award-winning, accredited state-of-the-art medical facility.
