Saggy skin is an issue everyone faces at some point in their lives. As people age, more and more skin around the eyes and forehead start to become loose, frown lines develop, and you may be left with an overall appearance that makes you look a lot older than you actually are. An endoscopic brow lift is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses horizontal incisions around the eyes and forehead to remove saggy skin and restore vitality and youthfulness.
The usefulness of an endoscopic brow lift is not limited to only the eyebrows, but also the entire top third of the face. What this means is that this cosmetic procedure will rejuvenate this portion so that excess skin and frown lines are removed. In addition to this, the procedure can also tighten the skin around the upper eyelid, making the eyes appear larger.
It is usually the bottom two-thirds of the face that are prone to age-related sagging and the development of lines and wrinkles. However, the forehead is not entirely free from this either. Ideally, an endoscopic brow lift would be used alongside other cosmetic procedures that target various skin problems and remove them through surgery.
Other than age related issues, a condition called ptosis, also called lazy eye, where the upper eyelid droops is also treated.
Should You Consider An Endoscopic Brow Lift?
There are different brow lift surgery techniques available today, and the endoscopic brow lift is just one such example. However, owing to the fact that it is minimally invasive, there is a faster recovery time and the chances of visible scarring are greatly reduced. Many people find an endoscopic brow lift to be an attractive option.
After the incisions are made, a small camera and a medical instrument made of fiber optics is used to get a view of the underlying tissue. This instrument is called an endoscope, and helps the surgeon gain a better view of the treatment area without having to make a large incision that leaves a post-surgical mark.
The surgeon is able to retain a great degree of control using this technique. This is why an endoscopic brow lift is also a recommended surgery for people dealing with drooping eyebrows. If you don’t require the extensive corrections made possible by a more traditional brow lift, the endoscopic method is the way to go for a less invasive surgery that you can heal from faster.
Blepharoplasty is a procedure that is frequently performed alongside an endoscopic brow lift. Since the brow lift surgery focuses only on the eyebrow, it does not resolve issues dealing with sagging skin under the eyes.
You can consider other cosmetic procedures as well depending on the condition of your skin. You can talk to a plastic surgeon during a consultation to better understand the process involved in the surgery and what to expect.
The endoscopic brow lift is a highly recommended procedure since can resume your daily routine soon after the surgery. You can expect a more youthful and rejuvenated look that will help contribute to an increase in confidence that you can take wherever you go.
