The eyebrows don’t stay looking young forever. With the onset of age, the effects of time and gravity start to be seen on different parts of the human body, and the eyebrows are no exception.
Some of the most common problems faced by people include drooping eyebrows, sagging skin, formation of deep lines and creases, and an overall loss in vitality in the brows and forehead. To correct this, we offer the endoscopic brow lift.
The Endoscopic Brow Lift
The cosmetic procedure designed to remove the effects of aging from the forehead and brow area is called a brow lift (or in some cases a forehead lift). It is usually performed alongside other cosmetic surgery procedures such as a facelift to create more comprehensive results.
The endoscopic brow lift is different from the traditional brow lift in a number of ways. First, it involves an endoscope. An endoscope is a metal tube with a camera and a light. This device is connected to a monitor screen that projects the images the camera captures.
The use of the endoscope letting the surgeon see the tissues underneath the skin with ease, granting improved clarity and improving the effectiveness of the procedure.
Endoscopic brow lifts also differ from traditional brow lifts in terms of invasiveness. It is considered to be a minimally invasive procedure, since the incisions used are very small. It involves less tissue alteration than a traditional brow lift, making it a perfect option for those with a minimal degree of sagging.
What Does an Endoscopic Brow Lift Entail?
The patient is placed under general anesthesia before the operation starts. During the procedure, Dr. Chow makes three to five very small incisions just above the hairline. The endoscope is inserted through an incision. Another tool is then inserted to adjust the tissues of the brow and forehead. Finally, the incisions are closed with sutures.
What Are the Advantages of Opting for an Endoscopic Brow Lift?
Age makes the skin around the brows droop. This condition is commonly called brow ptosis. The endoscopic brow surgery is a great way to remove this drooping skin and lift sagging eyebrows, giving them definition again for a less tired look.
The endoscopic brow lift has a faster healing time than other brow-lift procedures. The recovery time is between six to eight weeks, and the results last from ten to twelve years. This means that anyone who chooses to undergo an endoscopic brow surgery will find that their new looks will be a part of their life for a long time.
The use of special equipment to enhance precision during the operation also improves the overall results, providing more accurate and natural-looking results. The endoscopic brow lift thus offers clients youthful contours on their face through natural-looking and well-defined eyebrows.
