What is an Endoscopic brow lift?

 

Endoscopic brow lift

 

cosmetic surgery 30Aging causes the formation of lines and wrinkles on the forehead due to repetitive muscle movement. This can make a person appear older than their years.

 

In addition, the horizontal lines across the forehead or small vertical lines between the brows can make a person look stressed, angry, or simply unapproachable and disagreeable.

 

A skilled plastic surgeon who performs endoscopic brow lift cosmetic surgery can help patients achieve a smooth, fresh-looking and youthful upper face appearance.

 

Addressing the deep grooves or wrinkles on the forehead and repositioning the brow line to its appropriate place can easily take years off the patient’s face. An endoscopic brow lift is performed under anesthesia and is a minimally invasive procedure.

 

In this procedure, the surgeon places a series of tiny incisions discreetly in the hair. They then use specialized tools to release and raise the brow tissue delicately. In general, this procedure involves quicker healing and less bruising than the traditional approach.

Need for Endoscopic Brow Lift

 

In comparison to the mid and lower third of the face, the forehead is much less prone to aging as well as gravitational descent. However, at times, it is necessary to combine the forehead with eyelid surgeries or a facelift as a part of a comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

 

The reasons for lifting the forehead and brow tissues include addressing the slow age-related droop (ptosis) of soft tissue. This is a natural part of facial aging and is more prominent in some people.

 

Brow lifts also help adjust a congenitally low and heavy brow and addresses asymmetry which may occur due to conditions such as facial palsy where the lack of muscle function results in an asymmetrical drooping of forehead soft tissue.

Forehead and Brow Lift with Endoscope

 

Brow and forehead cosmetic surgery rejuvenation is individualized depending on the patient’s unique features. It may include repositioning of descended tissues, lifting of the brow, modulation of the muscle function causing the creases and lines, and adjustment of skin.

 

Even gentle adjustments in the forehead, brow, and eye areas can bring about significant improvements. A lift of merely four to six millimeter is usually enough to open up the eyes and restore a youthful placement of the eyebrows.

 

Rejuvenation of the forehead typically involves lifting the outer half of the brow as the mid-section is structurally more stable and less likely to descent due to gravity.

 

A gentle upwards curve of the brow is aesthetically attractive. The aim is to position the outer portion (endpoint) of the brow slightly higher than the inner part (the start point) with a delicate arch in between.

 

The surgeon will place an incision in an inconspicuous location around the eyebrow, and then insert a small camera (endoscope) into the deeper tissue. They will view the inner structures on a monitor outside.

 

This procedure enables the surgeon to undertake a more targeted brow lift surgery causing no trauma or damage to the surrounding tissue. Tiny incisions heal quicker and result in a briefer recovery period and minimal post-operative complications.
