Due to technological advancement in plastic surgery, many procedures have been accelerated, yielding excellent results. One such procedure that has advanced beyond traditional techniques is the endoscopic brow lift. This procedure gives excellent results without a painful recovery and associated scarring.
Compared to traditional coronal brow lifts, which used to leave people with a permanently surprised appearance, and an unsightly scar, the endoscopic brow lift is advanced, minimally invasive, and more effective, giving you natural-looking results.
Endoscopic Brow Lift Surgery
In the endoscopic brow lift surgery, the surgeon makes about five small incisions hidden in the hairline. The surgeon places each incision strategically along the forehead area to enable optimal access to the forehead structure.
The surgeon will use an endoscope and a few surgical tools while working through the small incisions, making adjustments through the incision sites. The patient's forehead skin will be repositioned to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
In traditional brow lift surgery, a single large incision is made. The incision size posed many issues to patients, and there was a risk of hair loss.
Let's take a look at why patients choose an endoscopic brow lift rather than a traditional brow lift.
In the endoscopic brow lift procedure, the incisions are small and well-concealed. It means you won't be able to notice the incisions. However, in a traditional brow lift, a coronal incision is made, which goes over the top of the head, extending from ear to ear. This lengthy incision often leaves a long, prominent scar.
Less Risk of Complications
The surgeon use endoscope to perform brow lift surgery, which enhances the surgeon’s visual field. The operative area is magnified on the HD screen monitor, helping the surgeon exercise much better care and caution during the operation.
Moreover, because the incisions are much smaller when compared to the traditional brow lift, the risk of complications, such as infection, and poor wound healing, are less.
Improved Release and Better Results
Compared to the traditional brow lift method, the endoscopic brow lift allows the surgeon to better release and lift off the sagging brow tissues. Quite often, in order to minimize frown lines and restore a youthful, approachable appearance, the surgeon reduces the corrugator muscles between the eyebrows.
The recovery period of an endoscopic brow lift is quicker than a traditional brow lift. The incisions made in the endoscopic brow lift procedure are small; they heal faster and cause minimal discomfort. You will be able to return to work in two weeks or so.
The Bottom Line
Remember, an endoscopic brow lift surgery may be ideal for you if you suffer from a sagging brow with forehead lines and wrinkles. The best way to figure that out is to consult the surgeon.
