All around the world, people take on a number of different beauty trends that make them feel more secure and confident in how they look. People change the way they dress, add makeup to improve their looks, and style their hair according to their desires or what’s popular in the moment.

Plastic surgery is also a common practice in present day beauty standards that allows for a better look where make-up just will not do the trick for you.

Among the various medical procedures that people undergo to look more to mold their bodies to the most popular beauty trends is the endoscopic brow lift. This is a highly popular plastic surgery technique that requires the utmost precision in order to provide patients with the look of their dreams.

What is an Endoscopic Brow Lift?

The Endoscopic brow lift is a surgical procedure performed on the forehead that results in a more aesthetically pleasing and youthful looking facial appearance. The procedure itself involves subperiosteal dissection, which is considered a stable process and results in the repositioning and separation of the facial muscles and bones.

Before the operation, the patient’s face is measured and estimates are made for the required vectors where the brow may be elevated and their location is marked on the forehead. The hair is pulled aside in bundles and an incision is made for the operation to take place.

Much of the dissection involves the use of designed elevators. The brow is then elevated and fixed and the region of the incision is stitched.

Benefits of the Procedure

The endoscopic brow lift is considered minimally invasive, as it is an endoscopic technique, and there is less risk of tissue trauma. Patients trust the procedure as there is a greater acceptance of alopecia which may be caused by the surgery.

The results of the procedure include an increase in the pupil to brow height. Aging is a natural human process and, to many, leads to the brows lowering due to excess skin or fullness in the upper eyelid. The endoscopic brow lift improves eyebrow symmetry and shape to a more aesthetically pleasing look.

The procedure can also help decreased the number of static wrinkles on the forehead and brow region. It further decreases the function of the muscles that are present in the glabellar and brow region, which reduces the chance of developing wrinkles in the area. Overall, the endoscopic brow lift provides patients with a smoother, less wrinkled brow region.

Problems with the Procedure

There are a potential risk factors associated with the endoscopic brow lift procedure. It may lead to alopecia, which is the loss of hair that can result in baldness. There is also a risk of circulatory impairment in the treatment region.

However, if you follow your doctor’s instructions and are open about your medical history, you can avoid the potential complications involved with the surgery.
