If you have begun to research ways to refresh your forehead, you may have noticed that it seems like fewer plastic surgery centers are offering coronal (traditional) brow lift these days. Indeed, our board-certified plastic surgeons at Facial Aesthetic Center have found that the traditional approach is not worth offering given the exciting benefits of a less invasive alternative: endoscopic brow lift. In this blog, our team of surgeons explain why they almost always recommend the endoscopic technique to patients looking for forehead rejuvenation.
Why undergo a more invasive procedure when a less invasive approach can fulfill many of the same objectives? Patients who choose endoscopic brow lift can eliminate eyebrow drooping, reposition fat that weighs down the upper eyelids, and minimize unwanted lines across the forehead and between the brows.
An endoscope is a tiny camera that transmits a live image of the underlying tissue. This view allows your surgeon to make precise adjustments that lift the sagging tissues without needing to pull extra components. This improves the overall quality of the results.
A traditional brow lift often requires a long incision across the scalp, which results in a more noticeable scar. Since endoscopic brow lift makes tinier incisions hidden along the hairline, any scarring is extremely difficult to spot.
By virtue of being a less invasive procedure, the post-surgical discomfort is minimal. Your risk for complications also decreases. Moreover, you can return to work and other normal activities much sooner.
Results That Look Natural
Endoscopic brow lift is a subtler transformation than many other forms of plastic surgery. By slightly elevating the eyebrow and tightening the musculature rather than pulling skin taut, your surgeon avoids creating an unnatural pulled look that used to be a more obvious sign of plastic surgery. Following endoscopic brow lift, your friends are more likely to think you have been getting better sleep or are in a good mood rather than it being obvious you have had work done.
