Endoscopic Brow Lift

Surgery has advanced significantly in recent years and today most Surgeons who specialise in cosmetic surgery, endeavour to reduce scars, pain, swelling and your stay in hospital.

Recent advances in the use of the Endoscope (keyhole surgery), has meant that in cosmetic surgery it is now possible to perform a brow lift through an Endoscope.

As we age, the upper third of the face developes horizontal creases in the forehead and drooping of the eyebrows.

The aim of an Endoscopic Brow Lift is to compensate for the drop in brow position that occurs, usually with age. Repositioning the brow and forehead gives a more youthfull appearance and fresh look to the upper face.


The advantages of this are

  • Far less scarring
  • Greatly reduced risk of nerve damage
  • Reduced swelling and oedema after surgery
  • Very little pain


Suitable for Problems with eyelid skin and its heaviness on the eye. As ageing develops the eyebrow position drops and this is repositioned in a "endoscopic brow lift"
