Endoscopic Brow Lift
By Dr. William Cohen on September 18, 2012
If you are fed up with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the brow area, you may be an ideal candidate for an endoscopic brow lift. An endoscopic brow lift is commonly used in facial rejuvenation to reveal a younger, more refreshed appearance. Through an endoscopic brow lift, we are able to effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the brow area. While the results achieved through endoscopic brow lift are similar to those achieved through more traditional brow lift surgical techniques, it is far less invasive.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
Our Orange County plastic surgery patients with excess, sagging skin in the brow area, as well as fine lines and wrinkles, may benefit from endoscopic brow lift. An endoscopic brow lift may be used to remove sagging skin from the brow area and to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. A benefit of endoscopic brow lift is that it requires only a few small incisions. These small incisions are made in the upper part of the forehead, within the hairline. This minimizes the appearance of any scarring that may result from the procedure. In traditional brow lift, an incision that extends from ear to ear is made. Some endoscopic brow lift surgeries may be performed without the use of general anesthesia. Your individual needs will determine the anesthesia used during your endoscopic brow lift procedure.
Once the tiny incisions have been made, Orange County brow lift surgeon William Cohen will insert the endoscope beneath the surface of the skin. Simply stated, an endoscope is a small light with a camera attached. The endoscope allows for the surgeon to access the underlying tissues and to make any necessary adjustments to those tissues. While viewing his progress on the screen, plastic surgeon William Cohen will remove and reshape the muscles and tissues as necessary. Once this process is complete, the skin is lifted to smooth the wrinkles and elevate the brow area. The skin will then be secured into place with stitches and bandaged.
Benefits of an Endoscopic Brow Lift
For our patients in Orange County, endoscopic forehead lift surgery can significantly improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the brow region as well as sagging skin. Through endoscopic brow lift surgery, patients can experience a boost in their self-confidence and self-esteem which, in turn, can improve their overall quality of life. Other benefits of endoscopic brow lift include:
- A faster recovery than is possible with traditional brow lift
- Fewer scars than with traditional brow lift
- May be performed at the earliest signs of aging
