As we age our eyes become more saggy looking and the brows get heavy. The solution may come in the form of a browlift. Over the years, the endoscopic browlift (sometimes also called “endo-brow”) has been labelled as being of “minimally invasive nature … with a recovery that is fast and comfortable”. Interestingly, there are many experienced facial cosmetic surgeons that dispute this claim.
If compared to an open approach, some of the distinguishing facts include:
1. Incision: Endo-brows are usually performed through 5 incisions placed within the hair. Adding them all together, they are commonly somewhat shorter than the one longer incision used in the open browlift.
