What Is A Browlift Explained by Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Andrew Campbell of Quintessa in Milwaukee, WI
Dr. Andrew Campbell
One of the most common concerns that we get here at Quintessa is that patients are being accused of looking tired or angry, and this always has something to do with the area around their eyes. It may be some excess eyelid skin, which is simply treated with an upper lid blepharoplasty, it may be those lines between the brows, which most commonly we’ll treat with Botox, or it may be the fact that their brow literally is too low and hanging down over their upper lids. That we treat with a brow lift.
I personally perform almost all of my brow lifts using an endoscopic technique, which means very small incisions up in the hairline, very minimal downtime, there’s virtually no discomfort with these procedures, they’re wrapped overnight, they wash their hair the next day, they may wear a little makeup, but patients really don’t have much downtime with it. It is performed in an operating room. An added benefit of having an endoscopic brow lift is the fact that I get to come in and remove some of the muscles here between the brows that we normally treat with Botox. The effect is they get partial Botox for the rest of their lives, which is a great added benefit to an endoscopic brow lift.
