Preoperative Botox for Endoscopic Browlifting

  • Andrea N. Hass


Preoperatively for an endoscopic browlift is an excellent time to introduce a patient to the benefits of Botox. Over time, constant use of the brow depressor muscles (corrugator, procerus, and lateral orbicularis muscles) has worked with gravity to lower the brow to its current position. Temporary paralysis of these muscles allows the elevator muscles of the brow to work without counterbalance, thus making them relatively stronger.
