As we age, the structures of our face begin to sag and droop. When this happens in the brow area, it leaves a person looking older, grumpier, and sadder. Many have turned to an endoscopic brow lift as a way of correcting this sagging and giving their face a more youthful appearance.
What is an Endoscopic Brow Lift?
As technology has advanced, surgeons have been able to provide care for their patients in a less invasive way. One key to providing less invasive surgery has been the endoscope, as well as the instruments that accompany it. An endoscopic brow lift allows a patient to walk away with stellar results while at the same time avoiding the long recovery time that often accompanies a traditional brow lift.
The first step in the endoscopic brow lift procedure is anesthesia. Your surgeon will provide you with medicine that will make you more comfortable throughout the procedure. He will offer either general anesthesia or intravenous sedation.
Next, three to five small incisions will be made along the hairline. Because of their size and location, these incisions will leave no visible scar. Using the endoscope, the surgeon can adjust everything from the hairline to the eyebrows. They can tighten muscles while at the same time smoothing the appearance of your forehead. If your eyebrows are asymmetrical, this can be addressed with this type of lift.
Once the procedure is complete, you will see some swelling and some bruising. However, you should be able to go back to your normal routine in ten days or less.
Who Are Good Candidates for a Brow Lift?
Good candidates for brow lifts are individuals who have eyebrows that sag and make them look tired or sad. They would also include individuals who have deep horizontal creases in their foreheads as well as noticeable furrows between the eyes.
Endoscopic brow surgery is right for you if you are looking to get rid of forehead wrinkles, want to elevate your eyebrows, have excessive skin that causes your eyelids to have a hooded appearance, or are interested in revitalizing the appearance of your face.
While an endoscopic brow lift will not change who you are, it could provide you with a more youthful appearance that in turn will give you the confidence to be the best person you can be. Contact Tarola Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation today.
