What Makes the Endoscopic Brow Lift Different?
Fortunately, the brow lift can make lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin in the forehead region go away! These lines and folds are not only the typical signs of aging, but could just be simple and early signs of stress or being overworked. They can turn you into a worried, tired, and angry-looking monster! Fear not, the brow lift can turn your appearance around. During the procedure, your doctor will make incisions at a targeted area in order to appropriately position the brow – thereby going a long way in decreasing the appearance of lines and wrinkles that show on the forehead area. The skin structures underneath, in the forehead region, can be adjusted and tightened as per required. What is the result? A forehead with reduced visible lines and a rejuvenated and fresher youthful look. There are two ways to have a brow lift – by endoscopy or a more classic method.
Two Techniques to Lift a Brow
With traditional brow lifts giving way to the more convenient endoscopic brow lift, more precision and less healing time is achieved. In the traditional brow lifting surgery, a single, big incision is made along the path of a patient’s hairline, around the scalp, reaching from ear to ear. This permits ample access for the surgeon to reach the forehead and its underlying structures. Nonetheless, a surgeon always looks for ways to minimize negative results like a large incision and prolonged healing, so the traditional method is virtually non-existent since the laparoscopic method has distinct advantages for this kind of cosmetic surgery.
How is an endoscopic brow lift different?
The most distinctive appeal of the endoscopic brow lift is that it is more advanced and minimally invasive. Five small incisions are made in such a way that they are camouflaged by the hairline. Strategically, each of these five incisions corresponds to the exact area to allow sufficient access for the surgeon to work on. An endoscope and small implements are used to position underlying structures of the forehead. This will reduce wrinkles significantly. The results are in the form of decreased scarring and a curbed risk of complications. The healing is better too, and this is good for the patient – as it’s a quicker healing process. Overall, patients seem happier. That’s the greatest benefit and the most relevant difference.
