About this Treatment
At EVOLV Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics, we offer a unique brow lift in Toledo. Dr. Frank Barone has extensive experience and prefers the endoscopic brow lift technique, or endo brow lift, for most patients because of the smaller and unnoticeable scars hidden in the hairline, preservation of sensory nerves, and, most importantly, the natural and ‘un-operated’ result this approach achieves.
The brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure to restore the upper face, forehead, upper eyelids, and eyebrows to their youthful or pre-aging position. When performed with a scope through small incisions hidden in the scalp behind the hairline, the brow lift is termed an endoscopic or endo brow lift. If you are considering a brow lift in Toledo, Dr. Barone can help.
What It Is
The brow or forehead lift is an effective procedure to rejuvenate the upper face by reducing forehead and upper nasal wrinkles and lines, including the frown or ’scowl’ lines, the ‘crow’s feet’ lines of the lateral eyelids, and to restore the eyebrows and upper eyelid tissues to a naturally youthful position.

Aging upper facial appearance
Crow's feet and other facial wrinkles
Sagging skin around the upper and lateral eyelids

- Youthful Appearance A brow lift in Toledo provides a naturally refreshed and younger appearance by restoring the tissues of the upper face and forehead to their youthful position.
- Less Eye Fatigue You will notice less eye fatigue with reading by removing excess weight and heaviness from the overlying eyebrow tissue and restoring support.
- Hidden Scars Utilizing the endoscopic approach or endobrow lift, scars are smaller and hidden in the hair and recovery is reduced.
- Balanced Look The endoscopic brow lift technique also results in a natural and balanced result without overcorrection or the ’surprised’ look often associated with traditional larger incision browlift approach.
How Brow Lift Works
A complete medical history, photo documentation, and examination will be done, along with an in-depth discussion of each patient’s concerns and goals to create a comprehensive treatment plan. This will include a discussion of recommended techniques, including incision location, expected results, costs, recovery time, and maintenance plan.
At EVOLV, all endoscopic brow lifts are performed in a fully accredited outpatient surgery center where experienced nurses, anesthesiologists, and specialized equipment are available. In the procedure, after anesthesia and prepping, 3 or 4 small incisions are made behind the hairline for access with the endoscope.
Construction of a comprehensive treatment plan that is specific to each patient’s goals, timing, budget, and downtime acceptability. This includes a pre-operative skin care preparation plan and post-operative maintenance recommendations to extend longevity and the value of results.
Using the endoscope and a monitor, the upper forehead and brow tissues are dissected, and overactive scowl muscles are reduced.
The upper forehead tissues and lateral brows are then released and repositioned and secured with anchoring sutures or other methods of fixation.
The small scalp incisions are closed with special staples to avoid hair loss; there are no visible incisions or scars on the forehead.
