About Endoscopic Browlift Surgery

There are many different ways that you can enhance your overall appearance and look years and years younger in the process. One of the sure ways is turning to plastic surgery. By undergoing a facial plastic surgery of some kind, wrinkles and lines can be eliminated, drooping or sagging skin can be tightened, and your overall appearance can be totally rejuvenated.

One problem area with regard to signs of aging is the forehead. Right now we’d like to consider the nature of endoscopic browlift surgery and how it may be the ideal solution for you and your needs.

About Endoscopic Browlift Surgery

Also known as an endoscopic forehead lift, an endoscopic browlift is a surgery that helps address deep lines and wrinkles along the forehead.  It can open up the eye area, helping heavy, tired-looking eyebrows . Using specially placed incisions behind the hairline, underlying structures of the forehead can be adjusted and sagging forehead skin lifted.

How an Endoscopic Browlift Differs from Traditional Browlift Surgery

During a traditional browlift, a large incision is made along or behind the hairline in order to do all of the necessary adjustments and tissue removal. In an endoscopic browlift, small incisions are strategically placed. A small endoscopic camera is inserted into the small incisions so that surgeons can monitor the underlying structures and make adjustments as needed.

Benefits of Endoscopic Browlift Surgery

Because of the less extensive incisions used in endoscopic browlift surgery, healing experience and healing time is much better when compared to traditional browlift surgery. There tends to be less discomfort overall as well and reduced chance of serious complications.

In addition, scarring from an endoscopic browlift tends to be better hidden than the extensive scars required for a traditional browlift.

Ideal Candidates for Endoscopic Browlift Surgery

The best candidates for endoscopic browlift surgery are people who suffer from deep worry lines and age lines along their forehead, or have eyebrows that are low or dropped. They should be in good overall health and not suffer from any medical conditions that would make a surgical procedure potentially risky. Candidates for endoscopic browlift should also have realistic expectations about the surgery and what it is able to achieve.

Considering Other Facial Rejuvenation Options

An endoscopic browlift is a great surgery to consider, but it is not the only option out there for effective facial rejuvenation. There are plenty of other facial plastic surgery treatments to consider that can make you looks years and years younger.

If you suffer from issues with wrinkling and sagging of the upper and lower eyelids, the ideal option to consider is cosmetic eyelid surgery, which is also known as a blepharoplasty. This can greatly improve your overall appearance.

There are also lifts that target other parts of the face, such as facelifting.  Many types of facelift are available, and Dr. Mackenzie will help determine which techniques suit your individual needs.

During your consultation, we will be sure to discuss all of your options for facial rejuvenation, and even discuss the possibility of a total makeover.
