Brow Lift Techniques
There are multiple techniques used for performing brow lifts. Dr. Sunder in Beverly Hills prefers to minimize downtime and incisions as much as possible and therefore opts for an endoscopic approach. This less invasive technique uses two small incisions that are made an inch away from the hairline into the scalp area. Implants called Endotine are used to maximize fixation, and dissolve over a period of time. These shorter incisions mean a shorter recovery time and less scarring than those from a traditional brow lift, which requires an incision that is made all the way across the scalp behind the hairline.
In a temporal lift, two small incisions are made laterally near the temple area. This approach is often combined with a mini brow lift and/or upper eyelid lift. A temporal lift is best suited for patients who are looking to enhance and lift the tail end of their eyebrows and the temple area.
Which technique is chosen depends on the thickness, texture and elasticity of the skin, the bone structure of the face, the overall appearance of eyebrows and eyelids, and the position of the eyebrows.
