Why Forehead Lines and Wrinkles Are a Problem
When you have deep lines and wrinkles on the forehead, your appearance an be adversely affected. Sure, a few lines may add a sense of distinction and experience, but many lines can be a real drag on your overall look. Sometimes these brow lines can make you look tired, worried, or surprised even when that is not the case.
The only way to reduce the appearance of these brow lines with absolute certainty is to undergo a browlift surgery.
What is an endoscopic browlift?
Also known as a forehead lift, a browlift is a surgery that is designed to tighten the skin of the forehead, eliminating wrinkles and restoring a sense of youthfulness and energy. This is not to be confused with a traditional facelift, which targets the middle portion of the face.
Advantages Over Traditional Browlift Surgery
The endoscopic browlift uses fewer and/or smaller incisions than the traditional browlift surgeries of the past. This makes the surgery must less invasive, and also makes post-surgical scarring much harder to spot. And since the surgery is less invasive, patients tend to heal faster and with fewer issues regarding discomfort and bruising than with traditional browlift surgery.
Ideal Candidates for Endoscopic Browlift
The best candidates for endoscopic browlift are patients suffering from brow wrinkles and lines who are in otherwise good health to tolerate surgery. They should have realistic expectations about the surgery and what it can achieve and understand all of the risks and benefits involved.
The Endoscopic Browlift Procedure
During the endoscopic browlift, small incisions are made along the hairline near the temples and at the top, frontal part of the hairline. Through these incisions, a small camera called an endoscope is used, allowing the surgeon to see the structures of the forehead.
Working through these small incisions, underlying tissues are adjusted and excess skin removed. Once adjustments are completed, the skin of the forehead is pulled tighter and sutured in place for a better appearance.
Other Options for Facial Rejuvenation and Wrinkle Reduction
It is not out of the ordinary for the browlift to be performed in combination with other procedures in order to achieve optimal facial rejuvenation results. Total makeovers such as these can be discussed in more detail during your consultation.
