No one likes premature aging. Age lines and wrinkles on the face not only look unappealing, they appear unnatural on a youthful face. The forehead is one of the most vulnerable regions when it comes to the formation of lines and wrinkles. These wrinkles can make a person look angry or stressed even when they’re not.
With the latest developments in cosmetic treatments and surgeries, newer and better treatment options are emerging. The endoscopic brow lift is one of the many developments to have hit the market in recent years.
The Endoscopic Brow Lift
The endoscopic brow lift is a less invasive forehead lift technique than the traditional brow lift. Because of this advantage, the recovery time is much shorter and can involve less post-operative bruising and swelling. This procedure offers smooth and beautiful-looking skin on the forehead. The results of the surgery look quite natural.
During this procedure, the surgeon makes small incisions on the forehead, just below the scalp. These incisions are smaller than the one made during the traditional brow lift. An endoscope is inserted through those incisions in order to give the doctor a highly detailed view of the underlying tissues.
After general observations, the surgeon makes adjustments to the muscle tissues using another small tool, causing wrinkles to be removed. As wrinkles are removed, the forehead develops a more relaxed and youthful look. The incisions are closed with sutures, and you are free to return home and heal. You can typically return to your regular activities in several weeks.
Good Candidates for the Endoscopic Brow Lift
An endoscopic brow lift is ideal for those with drooping eyelids and facial wrinkles. Signs of aging make people look worn out, tired, or even angry and irritated. Most patients who opt for this procedure are between 40 and 50 years old. Sometimes even people in their late 20s or early 30s also opt for this procedure.
The endoscopic brow lift is safe and involves only minimal risks. Before the actual procedure, patients are advised to stop smoking a few weeks prior to the surgery. It is also advisable to purchase necessary supplies for the healing process, such as cold compresses. You’ll learn more details about the healing process during your consultation.
Benefits of the Endoscopic Brow Lift
The endoscopic brow lift procedure is a great way to regain that youthful look and get rid of age lines and wrinkles. It is amazing how something as simple as the shape of eyebrows can have such a powerful impact on the facial appearance.
Another great benefit of this surgery is that it can be used in combination with other procedures like rhinoplasty. Doing this is an excellent way to achieve more comprehensive facial enhancement.
