One thing that turns patients away from plastic surgery is the idea that it requires significant downtime or causes visible scarring. It’s normal to want to avoid looking like you’ve had something done or taking time off to recover from surgery. If you want the rejuvenating results of a brow lift but without visible incisions or extensive downtime, the endoscopic brow lift is an exciting new option.
The endoscopic brow lift is an advanced brow lift technique that uses an endoscope, or a small surgical instrument and live feed camera, to lift and tighten the brow. Traditionally, the brow lift uses a larger “open” incision along the hairline, leading to longer recovery because of the greater impact on the surrounding tissues. The endoscopic brow lift uses virtually undetectable entry points to rejuvenate the brow for a younger, more refreshed look.
To learn more about the endoscopic brow lift in Nashville, your first step is meeting with Nashville’s renowned facial plastic surgeon. Our double-board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. David Gilpin, exclusively performs the brow lift using an endoscope and has decades of experience in cosmetic facial rejuvenation. During a consultation, our team can help you determine the best approach to your anti-aging goals and whether the endoscopic brow lift suits your needs.
A consultation is the best time to ask questions and voice any concerns you may have about plastic surgery and your chosen procedure. Dr. Gilpin and our team are passionate about building a relationship that will help you feel confident in your choice to undergo surgery. You’ll receive a full surgical plan and guidance on how to make the most of your brow lift results – all with the help of our knowledgeable team.
The endoscopic brow lift is one of the most transformative options for aging signs in the upper face. If you identify with the following, you may benefit from an endoscopic brow lift:
- You feel that you look angry or tired when in a resting state
- You have hooded brows or need to hold your brows up to put on makeup
- You have deep lines or furrows on your brow
- You’ve tried Botox but no longer see the results you want
The lateral brow lift is another option for many patients but the most important consideration for choosing between them is the degree of hooding in the center of the brow. An endoscopic brow lift can rejuvenate the whole brow, lifting it to a more upright position and getting rid of heaviness. For some patients, a lateral brow lift (or mini brow lift) is enough to achieve rejuvenating results. Ultimately, Dr. Gilpin can determine the best surgical approach for your needs. He can also recommend whether your brow lift should be combined with surgical options like upper blepharoplasty or the facelift, as well as non-surgical options like Botox.
There are options available for anesthetic during an endoscopic brow lift, and Dr. Gilpin will help you select the right one for your comfort level. Many patients can undergo an endoscopic brow lift while comfortably awake. To begin, Dr. Gilpin will create four small and precise entry points through which the endoscope can be inserted. Dr. Gilpin will use the endoscope to carefully lift and rejuvenate the tissues into their natural position with dissolvable sutures. Once the procedure is complete, you can return home.

Can a brow lift be done under local anesthesia?
The majority of our surgical procedures are performed using MAC anesthesia. This alternative to general anesthesia provides twilight sleep for patients in which they are able to breathe on their own, but they do not feel or remember anything afterward. In addition to IV anesthesia, Dr. Coan is an expert in utilizing local anesthetic to minimize immediate post-operative pain and discomfort.
