Brow Lift Print E-mail
Brow lifting refers to the elevation of the brow position by elevating the forehead by way of the so-called endoscopic brow lift. This is a procedure that is at times appropriate if the brow is in an extremely low position such that the upper eyelid is overly crowded. Dr. Maddox finds that this procedure is rarely needed and rarely requested by patients. Dr. Maddox disagrees with those doctors that tell all patients they must have their brow elevated. He believes that point of view is utter nonsense. Dr. Maddox’s pioneer colleagues have done over 1000 forehead/brow lifts and they are not criticizing the procedure, only it’s over use. Dr. Maddox would say that it applies to one in 40 or 50 patients and only if the patients initiate the idea.
