During the procedure, the hair on both the incision line is tied back, and the forehead skin is separated from the tissue below. The surgery removes the tissues and segments of muscles and skin that are responsible for wrinkles.
Endoscopic lift is another procedure to perform brow lift. In this procedure, the doctor makes around three, and a half inch cut into the top of the scalp. In this cut, a pencil thin scope is inserted which is connected to a camera. This allows the doctor to view beneath the skin, to perform the procedure.
