Endoscopic Brow Lift Tips and Information
If you suffer from the sagging brows and deep frown lines associated with age, you may be ready to investigate an endoscopic brow lift.Â You might have thought that the only thing that will help is a full facelift, but a brow lift can make a world of difference to the appearance of your facial features.Â This cosmetic procedure is designed to lift the sagging brow, reduce deep furrows and frown lines, and the eyebrows may even be reshaped and their symmetry improved.
Other types of brow lifts are available, but the endoscopic brow lift is becoming more popular all of the time because it is less invasive, takes a relatively short time, and has a shorter recovery period.Â So, for the busy person, this can be an excellent choice.Â Your board certified plastic surgeon will make a few small incisions in the scalp behind the hairline and insert the endoscope.Â This is a miniature camera attached to a special tube, or cannula.Â The surgeon is able to see the treatment area very accurately and allows for more detailed work with fewer and smaller incisions.
The endoscopic brow lift is done in an outpatient facility under general or local anesthesia, or both.Â It takes about an hour or two, depending on the extent of the work desired.Â Because the incisions are so small, there is minimal scarring.Â Very little pain or discomfort is associated with this procedure. Temporary bruising or swelling may occur during the recovery period, but usually goes away in a short time.Â The patient can return to work within several days, and begin enjoying his younger-looking appearance right away.
