Why Consider an Endoscopic Brow Lift?
- Posted on: May 15 2022
An endoscopic brow lift is a procedure that lifts and tightens the forehead tissue, creating a more youthful, lifted appearance in the forehead, brows, and eyes region. A brow lift, or forehead lift, can reduce the appearance of deep creases and wrinkles..
What Causes Facial Aging
Endoscopic brow lifts aim to reverse facial muscle deterioration around the eyes, brows and forehead. Muscle deterioration is a natural effect of the aging process. Genetics and lifestyle also play a role in each individual’s facial muscle deterioration rate.
Endoscopic Brow Lift Procedure
An endoscopic brow lift is an outpatient procedure. Here’s a list of what you can expect before and during the procedure:
- Consultation with Dr. Bardia Amirlak
- Schedule pre-op appointment
- Arrive for procedure
- The doctor will use general anesthesia during the procedure
- He’ll place three to five small incisions beneath the hairline where they are invisible
- Amirlak will then insert an endoscope into the incisions and loosen the tissue from beneath the skin
- He’ll lift and secure forehead and brow tissue
You’ll be able to go home soon after the doctor completes the procedure.
Endoscopic Brow Lift vs. Traditional Brow Lift
Endoscopic brow lifts offer a quicker recovery rate and less scarring than traditional brow lifts. The former may be right for you if your facial muscle deterioration is in a low to moderate stage.
Recovering From Your Endoscopic Brow Lift
You can expect minimal pain during your recovery process from this procedure. You should be able to recover from your endoscopic brow lift in the comfort of your own home.
It may be necessary to return to the office for suture or surgical staple removal around one week after the procedure.
You can expect some swelling and bruising in the first 10-14 days of recovery. Most people are able to resume work within one to two weeks.
Total recovery time varies, but most patients can resume normal activity, including strenuous exercise, within six to eight weeks..
