Mini Brow Lift

Mini brow lift surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that does not use an endoscope. For many individuals, mini brow lifts are sufficient to create a more youthful, refreshed appearance.

The advantages of a mini brow lift over the traditional method include smaller incisions, with less surgical trauma. Patients who have a mini brow lift can expect shorter recovery times with decreased chance for infections. The results of a mini brow lift are about the same as a full brow lift"�?only on a smaller scale. Usually, mini brow lifts resolve the "frown lines"? that form between the eyebrows, and doctors also use mini brow lifts to raise brow lines and improve symmetry, often softening the "hooded"? appearance of the eyes. Mini brow lift surgery uses small incisions, usually under two inches in length, made behind the hairline. Any mini brow lift scars are easily concealed by the natural hair growth. The actual surgical procedures used to perform a mini brow lift are almost identical to those for traditional or endoscopic brow lifts; what defines a mini brow lift are the size of the incisions and the more limited scope of the surgery. After mini brow lift surgery, patients should avoid tints and dyes for at least three weeks and follow-ups after mini brow lift procedures will be required to monitor healing.
