Unlike the classic brow lifts, in endoscopic forehead lift our surgeons make only four or five small scalp incisions, each less than an inch in length. An endoscopic tool (a sophisticated miniature camera device mounted on a flexible probe) connected to a television monitor, is inserted through one of the incisions. The endoscopic camera allows our surgeons to view the muscles and tissues beneath the skin and plan the most effective and efficient course of action. Next our surgeons use specially designed surgical instruments (which are inserted through the other incisions), to lift the forehead skin and work on the underlying muscles and tissues. The tool allows our surgeons to remove or changed the excess tissue and muscle to produce a smoother, more appreciable appearance. Itâ€™s quick, easy and in comparison to a normal brow lift, relatively less painful.
When the lift is complete, the scalp incisions area closed with the help of stitches or clips. As in the case of classic forehead lift, gauze or an elastic bandage may be used to cover the operated area. Most endoscopic patients return to their daily routine in less than 2-4 days.
