Understanding the Browlift San Antonio Surgery
What is the difference between Endoscopic Browlift and a Hairline Pretrichophytic Browlift? The main difference between the endoscopic browlift and the hairline browlift or midforehead lift is the placement of the incision. The endoscopic browlift incisions are in the scalp. Several small incisions are placed just behind the hairline and a scope is used to assist in the surgery. In the right patient this procedure results in less risk of numbness and scarring while having a faster recovery with Browlift Surgery.
The pretrichophytic browlift has an incision placed behind the first tuft of hair in the forehead. Temporal browlifts have incisions placed in the temple. The Midforehead browlit is performed in male browlift patients and has incisions placed in the middle of the forehead. While all the various procedures will raise the brow and smooth the forehead, some can even lower a high hairline and improve facial balance and harmony.
A forehead lift typically takes between one to two hours to perform. It is most commonly performed under IV sedation or twilight anesthesia.

What to Expect After the Endoscopic Browlift Surgery
Patients will experience a certain amount of swelling and bruising after endoscopic browlift and other types of browlift procedures in the 10-days following surgery. In some patients, this condition may include the cheek and eye area as well as the forehead. Keeping your head elevated will help to reduce swelling. In addition, cold compresses may further reduce swelling. Avoiding heavy lifting and exertion during the first two weeks after surgery will also help with swelling and bleeding after surgery. Patients may return to work after one week.
