Botox Brow Lift – Beverly Hills Brow Lift – Los Angeles Endoscopic Brow Lift, The first category is the type of brow lift that actually doesn’t require any surgery and by that I mean, the neurotoxin family. You can use botox, dysport, juvederm, all of these things and the way that it works is that we inject a little bit around the corner to prevent the depressors of the eyebrow to be paralyzed and subsequently to that, the brow goes up a little bit. The limitation of that is that it only lasts 3 months, so as long as the Botox is on, we can use that. You are not going to get a huge brow lift with that.
The second category is the type that actually requires surgery so a lot of times when I am doing an upper eyelid blepharoplasty, we do an incision through that same interal incision, I perform what we call a browpexy where a couple of sutures are placed internally and that in result lifts up the brow without the need to cut anywhere else on the body.
The third one is called a direct browplasty. With this type of browplasty, we make an incision over the eyebrow and usually it is reserved for older gentlemen who have lots of skin and we have to remove that so the incision is over here and it heals, it’s hidden because it’s right over the eyebrow. The next type of browplasty is the type that I showed a video of it a few weeks ago and basically we hide it into the crease and lift the eyebrow up directly. Again that procedure will fall under local anesthesia.
Another type is when we hide, it’s called a temporal browplasty when we hide the incision behind the hairline here and lift the corner of the brow to give a lift in that fashion, it opens up the corners of the brow. The beauty of that is the incision hidden and we can do that under local anesthesia.
The most common type that you might have heard of is called an endoscopic brow lift. The thing with that procedure is that is has to be done under general anesthesia. It’s a common procedure I do all the time, basically, four incisions are made, two here in the corners and two over here, all behind the hair and then we free up the entire forehead lift it up, usually anchor it.
I use endotines, but you can use sutures, they are permanent and they last, the incisions are closed. And the last one, which is the one that we don’t really do anymore is called the coronal brow lift where we make an incision all the way from here to here and lift the entire forehead up. For obvious reasons, because it takes so long to do that procedure, nobody really does that anymore. But these are some of the examples, if you have any questions, please leave a comment and we will get to you very soon.
