Abstract

Since its initial description by Vasconez et al in 1992, the endoscopic browlift has evolved into a popular method for addressing brow ptosis and forehead rejuvenation. The advantages of fewer incisions, less postoperative swelling, alopecia and prolonged scalp anesthesia, and more rapid rehabilitation have provided greater patient acceptance than the traditional coronal approach. Unlike the coronal browlift where the amount of elevation is determined by the amount of skin excised, the elevation in the endoscopic browlift is determined by periosteal release at the arcus marginalis and forehead flap fixation. Though equipment costs are greater and a learning curve exists, the endoscopic browlift offers the oculoplastic surgeon additional beneficial options in the management of brow ptosis.
