The Endoscopic Brow Lift
As we get older, our eyebrows start to droop and the skin on our faces starts to sag. This sagging is known as ptosis. There are many factors that create ptosis, including stress over time, gravity, sun overexposure, and the gradual loss of skin elasticity.
There’s no denying that every eyebrow has a distinctive shape and position on the face. Cosmetology studies indicate that the ideal placement of a female eyebrow is a little over the orbital rim.
If you’re not satisfied with the way your eyebrows look and want to make an improvement, then you can always choose an endoscopic brow lift procedure to alter the look of your eyebrows.
Advantages of an Endoscopic Brow Lift
Here are some of the key advantages an endoscopic brow lift surgery can provide:
• It helps in minimizing the wrinkle lines that tend to develop across your forehead, between your eyes, and on the bridge of your nose.
• It is effective in reducing frown lines and the vertical lines that are seen in between your eyebrows.
• It helps place your eyebrows in a youthful and alert position.
• It works to raise sagging brows that tend to hood your upper eyelids.
The Endoscopic Brow Lift Procedure
The endoscopic brow lift is a cosmetic technique used for uplifting the position of the eyebrows with the help of multiple small incisions that are made behind your hairline. Larger incisions are made in an open, or traditional, brow lift and at varying locations (at/within the hairline, in the forehead).
During the endoscopic brow lift procedure, your surgeon will make use of small instruments, as well as a fiber-optic camera (placed at the end of a thin tube) for visualizing the structure beneath your skin. He will work to adjust the muscle and tissue underneath your skin and correct the cause of visible furrows and creases in your forehead.
The incisions made during the endoscopic brow lift are usually closed with the help of temporary/absorbable sutures, surgical tape, skin adhesives, or special clips.
The majority of patients prefer the endoscopic brow lift over the traditional brow lift for the simple reason that it is less invasive when compared to the pretrichial and coronal brow-lift techniques and involves a quicker recovery time.
Your facial plastic surgeon will ensure that local anesthesia is administered to make you feel comfortable during the endoscopic brow lift surgery. The surgeon might suggest general anesthesia or intravenous sedation, depending on your specific case and comfort level.
Preparation for an Endoscopic Brow Lift
There are some general guidelines that you will need to follow while preparing for an endoscopic brow lift:
• Go for a medical exam or lab testing.
• Modify medications that you are currently taking and/or take certain medicines as recommended by your doctor.
• Avoid the intake of anti-inflammatory drugs, aspirin, and all supplements which might potentially increase bleeding.
• Stop smoking.
The endoscopic brow lift procedure should be conducted in a certified surgical facility or a licensed ambulatory hospital/surgical center.
