The rise of technology has worked wonders in the field of medical science. Most importantly, when it comes to face lifts, there are numerous options available to people today to enhance the appearance of their face. The issue however is that most facelifts are only concerned with enhancing the lower and mid portion of the face, which means that your brows remain unaffected. But now, there are newer advances opening up in this regard. One such method has been the use of Endoscopic Brow Lift.

This blog will give you a low down on this method.

Development

The rise of technology in this field of science has opened avenues for new and improved surgical competencies. As technology has enhanced though, so has consumer demand. Patients are now increasingly looking for least or non invasive procedures to deal with their problems.

Over the past 3 decades, the use of endoscopy is being made in a number of different medical procedures. Typically made use of by gynecologists, today it has started to be used in less invasive therapeutic procedures. From day one, it has been used to help with brow lifts.

What is it?

An Endoscopic brow lift is different to the typical method of brow lifting. Here, instead of an incision, there is a surgical camera viewing system that allows the procedure to be carried out with as little incisions as possible, ensuring accuracy. The aim of the surgery is to give people a relief from forehead wrinkles and a better position of the brow on your face.

Who are the Most Likely Patients?

Typically, there are a number of different kinds of patients that get their brow lifts done. On the whole, it can be said that a large number of patients are between the ages of 40 to 75. This is the age when wrinkles and other signs of ageing start to show. Yet, the treatment is not only limited to people above 40. Often, younger people can also suffer from frown lines and furrows either from stress or muscle activity.

Even patients who are born with heavy brows, low brows, frown lines, or furrows can use this process to enhance their appearance and look the way they have wanted to, alert, refreshed and relaxed.

What is the Surgery like and how long does it take?

The endoscopic brow lift surgery is the least invasive of all brow lift procedures. However, it is important to realize that with this kind of facial surgery there will still be incisions which may result in mild numbness and temporary discomfort once the incision has been made. Typically, the healing time will depend on the skin type and the number of incisions made. All of the incisions are made in the scalp above the hairline.
