Browlift Southlake TX
A browlift, also known as a forehead lift, helps smooth forehead skin and reduce the signs of aging in the upper face. In addition, the browlift moves the eyebrows to a higher, more youthful position. A browlift can be performed with other procedures such as an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) or with a facelift. An endoscopic browlift is a procedure during which an endoscope is used to help during surgery. The endoscope is a special viewing instrument that is inserted into a small incision to help the American Board of Plastic Surgery certified, Dr. Mason view a larger area without making a bigger incision.
Procedure Details Browlift Southlake TX
When a browlift is done endoscopically, the incisions are very small (as compared to a traditional browlift during which a large incision is made behind the hairline from ear to ear). There is less risk of sensory loss from nerve damage from small incisions made during endoscopic surgery. There usually is less bleeding, bruising and swelling which allows you to recover more quickly and resume normal activities earlier.
