What Is a Brow Lift?
Lifting of forehead is usually performed through one of three common procedures: an endobrow lift is performed with the usage of an endoscope, an open brow lift, or a temporal lift. This operationesthetically corrects sagging in the forehead skin, eyebrows and upper eyelids.
The surgeon will maneuver tissues and remove segments of muscles and skin that has wrinkles or deep frown. Sometimes, this operation is performed in conjunction with a face-lift or rhinoplasty.
You should decide yourself if you want to have same contoured appearance on all your face. If you have just one procedure done on forehead, other parts of face will look elder in comparison to it. If you are interested in learning other procedure, you should discuss it with a doctor.
There are two common ways to lift your forehead and eyebrow areas:
• classic lift
• endoscopic lift.
The classic lifting involves one continuous incision that begins at the level of your ears and goes up around your hair line. Depending on the line of hair growth, the surgeon will move the incision line to avoid a visible scar. For instance, if you are a man who is balding, the surgeon can make the incision mid-scalp, so that the scar can be hidden in the remaining hair.
Endoscopic lifting: instead of making one continuous incision, your surgeon will make a few shorter incisions in the scalp. The surgeon will insert a scope (small camera on the end of a thin tube) into one of the incisions in order to view the tissues and muscles from a screen. At the same time, the doctor will use another device inserted in another incision to make the necessary alterations.
In this procedure, small anchors are used to secure the tissue once it's altered appropriately. Those anchors are tiny, but mighty. They'll keep your tissue under control for years. Because the incisions are smaller, this procedure is less invasive. You will experience minimal scarring and shortened recovery time.
How theoperationwill be made?
The surgery is held under local anesthesia but also can be performed under general anesthesia. Patients are allowed to go home after a few hours. In the forehead a bandaj for 48-72 hours is applied. After the operation almost no pain is felt. Swelling and bruising may occur, but these usually disappears within7 days.
