2. Endoscopic Brow Lift
Endoscopic brow lift also makes use of anesthesia for patients despite it being a minimally invasive procedure. The surgeon controls specialized equipment to delicately release and raise the brow tissue after creating a set of small incisions tucked under the hair.
Overall, this procedure has a shorter recovery period and fewer cuts and bruises than the traditional approach.
3. Temporal Brow Lift
Another minimally invasive type of procedure is the temporal brow lift, which should be done under local anesthesia. The scaled-back endoscopic lift can achieve promising results while requiring little downtime.
Possible Risks and Complications of a Brow Lift
This surgical procedure comes with a number of risks, including:
- Skin sensation changes (which may be temporary or permanent numbness on the forehead or top of the scalp)
- Asymmetrical positioning of the brows
- Hair loss
- Eyebrow movement problems
It also carries the risks common to any other major surgery such as bleeding, infection, and an adverse reaction to anesthesia.
What To Expect After Procedure
To reduce the swelling after the procedure, your forehead may be loosely wrapped. Additionally, a small tube along the incision site helps drain any excess fluid.
Your doctor will provide you with specific instructions for caring for your incisions. In the first few days following a brow lift, you may rest your forehead and take prescribed pain relievers. Aside from that, you may also apply a cold compress to reduce swelling.
