Last month, The Doctors television show discussed a surgical procedure thats a favorite of Dr. Lo – the endoscopic brow lift. The brow lift is a facial plastic surgery procedure that slightly raises the eyebrows and alleviates ridges and furrows on the forehead, giving the patient an improved facial expression and contour. In certain cases it may even improve the patient’s vision.
The term ‘endoscopic’ refers to the surgical endoscope – a specialized instrument thats introduced 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 scarring.
Many patients choose to combine the endoscopic brow lift with other procedures, like blepharoplasty for example. At About Faces Cosmetic Surgery, we understand the significance of these decisions, and we want you to understand them. 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 making a decision about surgery.”
