Overly-elevated Brows After Endo Lift?

Endoscopic brow lifting can rarely result in an over corrected appearance
Endoscopic brow lifting can rarely result in an over corrected appearance. The most effective way and least traumatic way to improve and contour the brows would be using BOTOX or a similar neurotoxin. This can also be used to lower the brows. In time, the results of the brow lifting tend to decrease and the brows will naturally come down some. If neuromodulators don’t work, surgery can also be performed to correct the problem. Sometimes facial fillers applied appropriately can also reshape brows.

Can an Endoscopic Brow Lift Be Reversed?
The approach that may make the most sense is to try to free any underlying anchoring points and determine if that relaxes the effects. This may be used in combination with forehead lowering techniques. This would be difficult to determine without an exam and the decision may need to be made during the operation itself.

Reverse brow lift
Theoretically endoscopic release of all the brow, forehead and scalp tissues that were elevated could allow the brows to come back down. An open approach might be considered if the closed approach does not get the desired result on the table.

Your eyebrows can be lowered using the Irregular Trichophytic Hairline Incision that we described many years ago. Hair will grow through and in front of that hairline incision so it will not be seen. If the skin of your scalp and forehead is very tight an expander may be necessary to achieve the best possible result.
