The Doctors Discuss Endoscopic Brow Lift
Last week The Doctors featured the endoscopic brow lift, a favorite of Dr. Haiavy. The endoscopic brow lift is a facial plastic surgery procedure that slightly raises the eyebrows and alleviates ridges and furrows on the forehead, providing the patient with a more pleasing facial expression. In some cases, it even improves the patient’s vision.
The term ‘endoscopic’ refers to the surgical endoscope – a specialized instrument that we introduce into the body to view its internal parts and aid in surgery. Endoscopic techniques have improved the brow lift dramatically: they have allowed us to use smaller incisions, which expedite the healing process and reduce residual scarring.
Many patients choose to combine the endoscopic brow lift with other procedures, like blepharoplasty for example. At Inland Cosmetic Surgery, we understand this is no easy decision. Patients should heed the advice of Dr. Travis Stork on The Doctors; he says, “If you’re considering going under the knife, stop smoking, improve your diet, always follow your doctor’s instructions, and do your homework before deciding to undergo surgery.”
