An Endoscopic Brow Lift Is Perfect For Minor Rejuvenation
Your brows will not stay perfect throughout your life. While most people experience problems with their eyebrows due to age, hereditary factors can see people in their twenties suffering from this issue as well. Eyebrows tend to look droopy and develop wrinkles, making you look unapproachable and angry.
To remedy this, many people decide to undergo a brow lift in order to obtain a more youthful and vibrant appearance. While a traditional brow lift is preferred by many, the endoscopic variation makes full use of innovative technology to make the process less invasive. An endoscopic brow lift can remove excess skin from the brows, restore fullness to your upper eyelids, improve the general symmetry, change the shape of and reduce the presence of wrinkles in your eyebrows.
The procedure generally lasts between one to two hours. You will be administered general anesthesia to help ease discomfort, after which several small incisions will be made around your scalp. At this point, an endoscope will be inserted to make the treatment area visible on a screen which gives the doctor performing the treatment a view of the area.
Your doctor will then lift the foreskin and reposition the brows. Any muscle tissues that cause the appearance of fine lines are also removed at this point. Excess skin from the area is removed and the incisions are sutured and closed. The treatment area will be secured with bandages and stitches. While the bandages can be removed within a day or two, the stitches will take at least two weeks before they can be removed.
What You Need To Know About Getting An Endoscopic Brow Lift
As a surgery that does not take much time to recover from, you can expect to return to your normal routine life within weeks. A procedure that is usually undertaken by people in their forties and fifties, the general causative factor behind undergoing the procedure tends to be drooping eyebrows that increase in severity with age.
If you have decided to opt for this surgery, it is important that you find a medical professional who has experience performing the procedure with success. Any mistakes can cause your face to become asymmetrical and unattractive so it is important to work with someone who knows what they are doing. You should carefully research your doctor’s credentials and ensure that your surgeon has performed the surgery many times before and has a thorough knowledge in the field of plastic surgery.
You may experience certain side effects after the procedure. These include a temporary loss of sensation around the area of incision, damage to the nerves, and paralysis of the area surrounding the eyebrows and lower forehead. You can also expect a general numbness, itching, swelling, bruising, and fatigue in the incision area, but these will subside quickly.
