What is an endoscopic forehead lift?
What is an endoscopic forehead lift? It’s a forehead lift, or brow lift, performed with the aid of an endoscope. An endoscope is an instrument with a long tube, at the end of which is a tiny light and a camera or a lens connected to fiberoptic cable. It’s designed to be inserted into parts of the body so that the surgeon can see them without fully exposing them. They can be used to study joints, lungs, intestines, bile ducts and many other places. There are several kinds of endoscope, designed for access to different parts of the body.
So, what is an endoscopic forehead lift? It’s a forehead lift in which the surgeon makes an incision in the brow and inserts an endoscope to study the attachments of skin and muscle to the bone of the forehead. This helps the surgeon figure out what needs to be adjusted and moved where in order to reverse the effects of aging on the skin of the brow. An endoscopic brow lift creates a more naturally youthful appearance than other sorts of brow llifts. Combined with face lifts, eyelid surgery and the careful use of fillers and/or BOTOX, it can make your whole face look younger.
