Combination Mid-Brow Incision with Endoscope Brow Lift

A brow lift completed with a midbrow incision and an endoscope allows for improved visualization with less evident scarring. For this lift, the incision point is made at the temporal hairline recession at the forehead. This allows for easier concealment of any scarring. An endoscope, which is a surgical micro-camera, allows for increased accuracy when it can be used during a brow lift that utilizes smaller incisions.

The Specifics


What is a combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift?

A combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift is a permanent surgical procedure producing immediately noticeable results. This brow lift technique combines the endoscopic approach with incisions made in the mid-forehead, rather than within the hairline. This procedure can be a good choice for certain candidates with unique hairlines. The risk of visible scarring is slightly higher, although candidates with naturally grooved foreheads will easily camouflage scars. The results of this procedure will evolve with natural aging.

What cosmetic concerns does a combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift procedure treat?

  1. Aging & Tired Eyes: Combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift can correct the brow position and tone to refresh the eye and brow appearance.
  2. Forehead Shape & Size: A combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift will restore the tone and tightness of the forehead skin to rejuvenate the appearance.

Who is the ideal candidate for a combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift procedure?

The ideal candidate for a combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift is men or women with hairlines that preclude them from the standard endoscopic approach, thick forehead wrinkles, or medial brow ptosis. A combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift is not recommended for women with high hairlines, balding men, those with a history of male pattern baldness, or those without deep forehead creases to camoflauge post-operative scars.

What is the average recovery associated with a combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift procedure?

Wound healing following a combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift usually takes ten days to two weeks. Bruising, pain, and swelling improve significantly over the first week or two. Wound dressings, cool packs, and elevation of the head can reduce swelling. Sutures or staples will be removed after seven days. Recovery time varies among individuals, however, most patients feel comfortable in public after two weeks and makeup can be worn after one week.

What are the potential side effects of a combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift procedure?

Possible side effects from a combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift include visible scars, excessive swelling, hair loss, uncontrolled bleeding, pain, changes in sensation (such as numbness, hyperesthesia, or permanent scalp paresthesias), infection of incision sites, and elevation of the frontal hairline.

What can someone expect from the results of a combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift procedure?

A combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift creates immediately noticeable and permanent alterations to the forehead, brow, and eye appearance. A combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift rejuvenates the eye, brow, and forehead area by toning, tightening, and smoothing brow/forehead skin. Repositioning a heavy or sagging brow creates a more youthful appearance and contour.

What is the average cost of a combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift procedure?

A combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift procedure can cost anywhere from $4,000 to $7,000. The actual cost of a combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift is dependent upon location, board certified plastic surgeon, and length and involvement of the plastic surgery.

What to Expect


This brow lift technique combines the precise lifting of a midbrow incision but is less invasive by increasing visualization with endoscopic cameras. Here is a quick guide for what to expect before, during, and after a combination midbrow incision with endoscope brow lift.

The Takeaway


A combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift is a forehead lift procedure to enhance the forehead and brow, and by extension the eyes. This approach is unique in that the incisions are made in the mid forehead rather than within the hairline. The results of a combination mid-brow incision with endoscopic brow lift are permanent and immediately noticeable, although they are subject to changes over time from natural aging.
