A brow lift, which is sometimes referred to as a forehead lift, is a procedure that helps lift a dropping eyebrow. It also helps remove sagging skin from around the eyelids.

There is less discomfort and bruising associated with the endoscopic brow lifting technique. Patients will also be able to recover faster. The endoscopic brow lifting technique involves using fiber optic telescopes to make incisions in the hairline.
