Men and women who are noticing the signs of aging impacting their face may not be aware of the many procedures available to them through Skintology Med Spa. Our professionals, including Dr. Jennifer Walden, work hard to ensure patients have access to services that can assist them in turning back the hands of time. One common procedure available at our practice is that of the endoscopic brow lift, which can address the upper third of the face.
How is an endoscopic brow lift performed?
While a traditional brow lift surgery can be rather invasive, the team at Skintology Med Spa is pleased to provide an alternative that is not nearly as complex. The endoscopic brow lift is a procedure that is minimally invasive and can be performed under anesthesia. This method of performing a brow lift is different than traditional surgeries because of the way it is handled. The doctor creates a series of incisions that are smaller and within the hairline to reduce scarring. Special instruments are then used through these incisions to release the brow tissue and elevate it for the desired effect. In most cases, patients will heal faster from this procedure and have less bruising and swelling when compared with the more classic approach suggested by plastic surgeons. Patients love the fact that they can have work done without having to deal with long-term scarring and extended recovery times.
What can I expect after the procedure?
An endoscopic brow lift is still a surgical procedure, so our team will release patients with specific aftercare instructions to ensure post-op recovery occurs as planned. It is essential that patients comply with these instructions as it can minimize discomfort, ensure the desired final results, and prevent the development of infection. Patients are advised to take their pain medication as directed, use cold compresses to minimize swelling, and avoid certain activities while recovering from their procedure. These recommendations are outlined in the post-operative care instructions given at the time of release.
