Endoscopic brow lift

 

Endoscopic  brow lift or forehead lift are rejuvenating operations which allow to get rid from hanging eyelids and facial expression of trouble or anger, arising from vertical wrinkles between eyebrows. This operation is popular among both men and women in age from 35 till 70s.  During endoscopic  brow lift plastic surgeon lifts skin of top third of face and sometimes deletes part of muscle, which initiate wrinkles between     eyebrows. As a of endoscopic brow lift result  patient looks younger and fresher.
 

 

If you are worried with hanging eyebrows, which  make face look tired or sad, deep horizontal wrinkles on  forehead and mimic wrinkles, endoscopic  brow lift is a right choice.  To  understand quickly what can you expect, make a simple test. Put fingers on external third of eyebrow and lift skin upwards.  This is how much operation may alter your appearance. However to define whether this operation is appropriate for you, discuss it in detail with your cosmetic surgeon.

 

Endoscopic  brow lift utilizes small pen-sized videocam, connected to monitor.  Endoscope is inserted under skin through small cuts, no more than 1 sm in length, located right behind hair line.  Cosmetic surgeon observes   muscles and tissues under skin through cam. Then plastic surgeon inserts second tool which separates skin  from tissue and works with muscles. During endoscopic  brow lift eyebrows and forehead tissues are lifted upwards and fixed at desirable level. In Villa Medica endoscopic  brow lift is made    using new revolutionary, resorbable device ENDOTIN Forehead.
 

 

ENDOTIN Forehead was  developed to lift and fix soft tissues of forehead. Due to unique structure of the device, teeth located on main platform, fix forehead soft tissues in several points, distributing tension on full  area of platform. Comparing to other methods (for example screws and seams), which utilize only one fixing point, where tissue may stretch or torn,  and operation results therefore - disappear.
 

 

ENDOTIN Forehead is installed by skilled plastic surgeon following 2 simple steps.  When brows are lifted on desirable height, ENDOTIN Forehead is inserted under soft tissues  o provide reliable fixing.  Then edge of cuts are sew together and ENDOTIN Forehead remains under skin until resolves completely.
 

 

ADVANTAGES OF ENDOSCOPIC BROW LIFT IN COMPARISON WITH TRADITIONAL "OPEN" OPERATION:

 

  • Small cuts, less visible hems
  • Head skin numbness is rare
  • There are fewer areas of hair loss
  • Pain, hypostasis and bruises are less intensive

 

Design of ENDOTIN Forehead was specially developed to ensure uniform load distribution.   This is key success factor for plastic surgeon to control  the best aesthetic factors – height and shape of eyebrows

WE RECOMMEND BEFORE OPERATION:

  • Have lymphatic massage in 1 month before operation
  • Have some cooling bags and eye drops at home;
  • Have sun glasses coming to clinics.
     

 

Forehead lift operation takes   about 60 minutes under general anaesthesia, depending on health conditions and personal requirements of patient.  General anestezia  is carried out by   highly skilled doctor-anaesthesiologist who selects the most suitable technique after examinig your situation.  After general anestezia you will need to spend one day     in our clinic under careful  supervision of  personnel. You will also need to present  to anaesthesiologist  electrocardiogram and blood and urine test results. 
 

 

Operation is carried out in our private clinic in Estonia, Parnu,  Villa 3, Villa Medica
 

 

Hypostasis and bruises on eyebrows  may appear right after forehead lift, and remain up to 10th day after operation. It is necessary to sleep with highly raised head at the first night after   operation, To decrease hypostasis, you can put ice on face. Probably, doctor will prescribe you soothing medications to take some time after forehead lift if you feel discomfort.

 

Bandage and drainages (if those are required) are removed usually in first few days after operation. Also in few days doctor will allow to take a shower and wash a head.   You may feel dumbness and  prutitus in   cuts’  places in the beginning of recovery.  Recovery period after traditional operation for most patients is about 2 weeks and shorter for endoscopic  brow lift operations. You may feel ENDOTIN Forehead during this period under   skin and experience hypersensibility in operational zone until   bioresolving material of  ENDOTIN Forehead  is resorbed completely.
 

 

DURATION OF EFFECT OF ENDOSCOPIC BROW LIFT VARIES FOR DIFFERENT PEOPLE. IT DEPENDS ON VARIOUS FACTORS, INCLUDING HEREDITY AND LIFE STYLE.
ALTHOUGH YOU WILL START TO LOOK YOUNGER, AGEING IS UNAVOIDABLE. AND IT IS QUITE PROBABLE THAT IN FUTURE YOU WOULD MAKE A DECISION TO TAKE ANOTHER PLASTIC SURGERY OPERATION.

 

PLASTIC SURGEON WILL PRESCRIBE REQUIRED PROCEDURES AFTER OPERATION.
You should visit doctor 1-2 times next 2 weeks after operation. We’ll perform all required  procedures. It’s recommended to keep fixing bandage on forehead 1-2 week, 24 hours per day.   
 

 

Although ENDOTIN Forehead was specially developed for brow lift operations, it is necessary to understand that installation of it and or other implants also has risks.  For example, you may feel discomfort  after operation, or wound may be infected and heal slowly in implant area.  In addition you may feel  ENDOTIN Forehead under skin, and feel pain touching it.
 

 

Much less probably, but still it is possible when skin and hair in implant area would become more thin, and if healing problems persist - there can be scars. If the implant disturbs to you so much that you do not want to wait until it dissolves completely, you can ask doctor to remove it during simple procedure.
 

 

Another additional, but really rare risks are connected with the fact that ENDOTIN Forehead is fixed in small holes, drilled in your skull bone, which if made improperly, may lead to a serious trauma. There is a risk of an infection of a bone or  implant  detachment  when  ENDOTIN Forehead moves under  skin.   At last, although ENDOTIN Forehead is biodegradable, there is a probability when dissolving would slow down  and you would prefer to remove it surgically, rather than to feel discomfort or other troubles.
