A lucky few of us can claim they are aging gracefully, however for the majority of people, aging can be painfully frustrating experience, as we come to grasp with our diminishing appearance. Heredity, stress, poor diet, poor health, sun exposure, and time all contribute to the severity of this aging process. Our looks, more than anything, gives us a indication of our imminent mortality, and one of the most telling feature of aging, is our forehead.
Over time, the laxity of our skin increases particularly in the forehead, eyebrows and eyelids. This contributes to the development of wrinkles, frown lines, and drooping eyebrows and upper eyelids. These effects can make an individual look fatigued, angry, and sad, which is not aesthetically pleasing. That is why more and more people are receiving brow lift surgery to remedy these flaws - and restore their once youthful appearance.
How it Works
Endoscopic brow lifts address the muscles of the central forehead, which cause facial expressions of worry, concern and fatigue. Endoscopic eye brow lift (s) utilizes small fiber optic probes with cameras at the tip (endoscope) which allow the surgeon to view the exact plane beneath the skin, scalp, and subcutaneous tissues. Generally this procedure involves making between three to five small incisions the hairline Tissue is released and repositioned in an upward fashion.
In the past, restoration of the forehead and eyebrow were performed using the traditional coronal brow lift procedure that required a long (coronal) incision that extended from one ear to the other. However, with the advent of new endoscope technology, this procedure can now be performed as an endoscope brow lift (s) or endo brow lifts which uses smaller incisions behind the hairline resulting in a significantly lower degree of wound healing and scarring.
A "muscle sectioning procedure" is performed in the central portion of the forehead during endoscopic visualization. The hairline is slightly raised and the eyebrows and redundant eyelid skin are repositioned upwards concurrently.
Also, during the endoscopic procedure the forehead glabellar muscles are trimmed. From an aesthetic standpoint, it is beneficial to reduce or even eliminate the ability of these muscles to function.
Risks and Complications
Once adjustments are made, the endoscope probes are removed and the incisions are sealed. Compared to the traditional coronal brow lift, this procedure is minimally invasive. The utilization of smaller incisions minimizes the chance of infection, and consequently increases healing times following the operation. The ensuing scars are smaller and much less noticeable as they hide reasonably well in the confines of the hair. Additionally, scalp tissue is essentially not removed in the procedure and there is relatively little to no hair loss. Overall, Endoscopic brow lifts can produce the same results of a traditional lift with fewer complications.
No one likes to see his or her forehead become loose and wrinkled with embarrassing stress lines. Individuals who undergo this procedure have found that theses signs of aging are effectively eliminated, as they look noticeably younger. This enhanced appearance also stimulates a better sense of confidence so that the patient also feels much younger.
