Endoscopic Brow Lift/Midface Lift Dallas

Patients who want a smoother, younger-looking face can find something in the Dallas/Fort Worth area that can’t be found anywhere else in the world: the developer of the ingenious endoscopic brow/midface lift (EBMF). Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Steve Byrd, who is certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgeons and a recognized innovator in plastic surgery, created the EBMF technique to give patients a chance to get the look of a full facelift without the visible scarring. The procedure is much less invasive and provides an extremely high level of patient and physician satisfaction.

Answers to Common Questions

How is the technique of using the endoscope different than the other type of brow lifts that I read about?

The endoscopic assisted brow and midfacelift is my technique/invention—I have employed many of the techniques prior to the introduction of the endoscope for faces in 1995. It allow for differential pull along the brow, no movement of the hairline, no permanent scalp numbness or hairloss and no “deer in the headlight/surpised” look.

In what ways is this better for me than the traditional brow lift?

Many reasons are noted in my answer to question 1). The primary reason patients love this approach is the natural rejuvenation that is achieved. I review their photographs (portrait style is preferred) from 10-20 years ago and we identify how/how much and where aging has taken its greatest toll. Generally speaking, at the age of 40 years the face has some degree of ptosis (sagging) and volume loss. When patients complain about a “tired/angry” look it can be pointed out that there is sagging of the muscle which surrounds the eye and is responsible for us squinting and raising our eyebrows.

This is the muscle, both top and bottom of it, which can be accessed endoscopically through a 1.5 “incision in the temporal scalp and lifted with sutures to hold it in place. The lift is vertical and oblique…not one or the other like the other brow and facelifting techniques used. The resulting look is natural and restores a person’s youthful appearance…never giving a “different”, yet possibly younger look. The volume loss, usually in the fat pockets of the face (there are five on each side of the face—temporal, cheeks (2), nasolabial, pre jowl), is replaced with specifically placed and presurgically marked microfat grafts.

What is the recovery period and how soon will I be able to return to work after the endoscopic brow and midfacelift?

We have our patients spend one night in the overnight facility. Tiny drains are removed the following morning prior to discharge. Patients have sutures which are removed approximately one week post surgery. Most patients return to work 2 weeks post surgery.

There will be some remaining swelling in the temporal tissues (outside of the corner of the eyes), so some patients use eyeglasses/different hairstyle, minimize close contact with close friends/coworkers until three weeks post surgery.

Does this procedure blend well with the traditional facelift/eyelift procedures?

Yes, it blends very well with other face/eyelifting techniques, or it is a beautiful, stand alone procedure for younger, “just starting to age” patients.

Dr. Byrd’s Approach

The endoscopic brow/midface lift was developed to provide a virtually scarless face lift. No hair is removed, and the hairline is preserved. To perform this innovative facelift surgery, Dr. Byrd, who has performed approximately 6,500 face and nose procedures, uses the same type of instrument used in endoscopic gall bladder or appendectomy surgeries. He is able to make only several small incisions in the scalp. Then he threads the endoscope into the face to perform the face lift. The technique does not require a long incision across the head as is used for a full face lift.

Why choose the EBMF procedure over a traditional brow lift or facelift in Dallas, Texas?

  • Less scarring
  • Less chance of hair loss
  • Minimized chance of nerve damage
  • Patients see a natural rejuvenation, setting the clock back 10 to 15 years

Are You a Candidate?

Although the EBMF is a great option for any patient wishing for the look a full face lift provides, it’s especially attractive to younger patients who may be able to postpone a full face surgery. People appreciate that the more conservative EBMF technique can provide the same outstanding results as the more invasive full face lift, especially when combined with good skin care and chemical peels or laser skin resurfacing to treat damaged skin. The endoscopic approach to brow and midface lifting creates an elegant look that restores upper face angularity, alertness and youthfulness, without that “surprised” look that is sometimes seen after an aggressive full face lift.

Regardless of age or skin condition, the endoscopic approach is a good choice for almost anyone concerned about the changes gravity and time have taken on his or her face. In most patients, the earliest signs of aging are around the eyes and cheeks. Wrinkles on the forehead may be visible even at rest. The brows may have dropped some. The lower lid may have begun to sag. Even full, youthful cheeks may have fallen to gravity’s relentless pull. If you want a bright, youthful, rested appearance, an endoscopic approach may be right for you.
