Over time, many tissues of the body begin to show the effects of aging and gravity. Some of the earliest signs of aging can be noticed in the forehead area, where people can develop wrinkles and creases, frown and worry lines between the eyes, and sagging of the eyebrows, causing “hooded” eyes that make you look tired or angry. Some patients try to compensate for hooded eyes by using their forehead muscle to lift the eyebrows, further exacerbating forehead creasing and wrinkling.
Endoscopic brow lift
Dr. Michael McCracken is specially trained in a number of techniques to lift the eyebrows, including the endoscopic brow lift in Denver, Colorado. The endoscopic brow lift is a technologically advanced, minimal incision technique to help combat the signs of aging in the forehead.
About the endoscopic brow lift procedure
The endoscopic brow lift procedure in our Denver, Colorado location takes about an hour and can be done without general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Using a fiber optic endoscope, which is a surgical video devise, Dr. McCracken makes small incisions behind the hairline to elevate the eyebrow to a natural, youthful position, while weakening the muscles that help create forehead lines and creases. During the procedure, the tissues and muscles will be repositioned ore removed in order to noticeably decrease the appearance of forehead wrinkles and “hooding” of the brows.
Following your endoscopic brow lift in Denver, your incision will be closed using surgical staples. Your forehead may be taped and loosely wrapped in order to minimize post-operative swelling.
