The upper portion of the eye can be broken down into two units:
The eyebrow represents the thickened area on or above the upper eye socket bone, frequently (but not always) demarcated by the eyebrow hair. An endoscopic brow lift involves the gentle lifting of the outside portion of the brow, creating a more youthful shape to the brow.
The procedure is performed using a fiber optic camera through hidden, minimally invasive incisions in the hair. Under full visualization, the brow is gently released from its deeper attachments and repositioned in a more aesthetically appropriate position.
An endoscopic brow lift can also be performed simultaneously with an upper blepharoplasty.
During an endoscopic brow lift Dr. Cabin makes an incision above a patient’s temples. Dr. Cabin next inserts a fiber optic camera that enables him to perform the procedure below a patient’s skin.
He then examines the treatment area and makes a small incision into a patient’s eyebrow. At this time, Dr. Cabin loosens or removes muscle, pulls tissue and skin upward, and stitches up the treatment area.
