Objective  To report our experience with the endoscopic brow-lift in male patients at a university-affiliated outpatient surgery center.

Methods  Retrospective case series.

Results  From 1995 to 2007, a total of 244 endoscopic brow-lift procedures were performed, 21 of which involved men. Thirteen of the male patients had receding hairlines or some degree of baldness. Two male patients had postoperative complications; 1 male patient had temporal branch neurapraxia that resolved; and 1 male patient had in-office scar revision.

Conclusions  We have found that the endoscopic brow-lift procedure is well suited for male facial rejuvenation. Furthermore, our combined stair-step approach and suture suspension technique provides consistent results and high satisfaction regardless of the patient's hairline.
