Is the Endoscopic Forehead Lift the Better Choice?
Do you have a problem with sagging skin on the forehead? This is an issue that many people have to deal with as they age. It can lead to drooping and misshapen eyebrows, resulting in an aged and tired expression that is permanently fixed to the face. This can cause feelings of insecurity and a lack of confidence in your day-to-day life. To remedy the situation, you may want to consider undergoing an endoscopic forehead lift.
Benefits of the Endoscopic Forehead Lift
While the forehead lift procedure has been widely used for rectifying drooping forehead skin for a long time, the endoscopic forehead lift has a number of great benefits that make it an ideal option for patients who want a less invasive procedure done.
First, the endoscopic technique does not involve a large incision. This reduces the extent of post-surgical marks. The smaller incision made using this method also leads to less discomfort post-surgery and a much shorter recovery time. Less downtime means less time taken off of work and more time doing the things you love to do after the procedure is completed.
While the endoscopic forehead lift can improve the look of the skin in the brow region, it can also reduce wrinkles on the forehead. It can help get rid of the drooping appearance of the eyes and make you look more vibrant, youthful, and alert.
An endoscopic forehead lift may also offer a more effective alternative to Botox, particularly when the drooping is too severe and the wrinkles are too deep or recurrent. A single forehead lift can offer more benefits than multiple sittings of a botox treatment.
Are You an Eligible Candidate?
If you’re deciding on undergoing the endoscopic forehead lift, it is important for you to talk to a surgeon to determine if you’re an eligible candidate for the treatment. Your doctor will ask you for a detailed medical history to make sure there are no underlying conditions that may cause complications. It is important to disclose as much information as possible so that he will have a clear idea of your needs before performing the surgery.
You may also be given a set of instructions that you will have to adhere to before and after the surgery. These instructions can help facilitate successful results and a rapid recovery. This type of procedure can greatly enhance the look of the brow area if you follow the instructions given to you by your surgeon.
During the consultation process, your care provider will assess your body as a whole to determine the best surgical technique to use and where to place the incisions. While the endoscopic technique is less taxing on the body when compared to a traditional lift, it is still important for you to take some time to rest and relax after the procedure is completed to recover properly.
