An endoscopic brow lift is often an excellent choice for people wanting their face to not only look smoother, but to also have a younger-looking appearance. This is a much less invasive type of cosmetic procedure, and Dr. J. Hopkins has an impressive track record of extremely satisfied patients. Here’s some information about the procedure, as well as how to tell if you would be a good candidate.
How an Endoscopic Brow Lift Works
An endoscopic brow lift is much different from traditional procedures in that it doesn’t require any movement of the hairline, which can lead to a substantial amount of hair loss. By making tiny incisions of just more than an inch, a skilled surgeon can restore your youthful appearance in a natural way. Unlike typical facelifts, an endoscopic brow lift doesn’t require a long incision across the head. Not only does it result in less scarring, there is also much less of a chance that nerve damage will occur.
Is it Right for You?
The endoscopic brow lift procedure is ideal for younger patients who don’t need a full face lift. When combined with other treatments and good overall skin care, the procedure can provide incredible results, providing an alert, youthful look. But just about anyone will be a good candidate, regardless of his or her skin condition or age.
Once the procedure is complete, you may have to stay overnight so that any small drains inserted near the incisions can be removed the next morning. You can expect your sutures to be taken out about a week later, and then be able to return to work about a week after that. You may notice some swelling in the area, but this should subside after about three weeks.
