Endoscopic forehead lift – eyebrow lift

The eye area and forehead are the earliest aging areas of the face. Various deformations begin to occur in the forehead and tissues around the eyes as a result of aging, gravity and excessive use of mimics. Eyebrows begin to fall, skin accumulates on the upper eyelid, wrinkles called crow’s feet begin to form on the edge of the eye. This makes the person look more tired, unhappy and older than they are.
Endoscopic surgery is a type of surgery performed using special devices and cameras without making large skin incisions on the skin. It has been widely used in aesthetic surgery in the last 10 years. The most commonly used area is forehead temple stretching surgeries.
Endoscopic forehead lift surgery is performed through 3 incisions of 2-3 cm in the scalp. Special surgical instruments (stripper, camera, cautery, …) are delivered to the operating area through these incisions. With the help of the camera inserted inside, the operation area is displayed. Thanks to this technique, the eyebrows and forehead tissue are stripped from the bone without making an incision on the scalp, lifted to a higher level and fixed in its new place.
The most important advantage of this method is that there is very little scarring on the scalp, there is no sensory defect in this area, and the recovery is generally very fast.
Although endoscopic forehead lift can be performed under local anesthesia, general anesthesia is preferred for patient comfort, since face lift procedures are often performed in the same session. Patients who do not have a facelift can stay in the hospital after the surgery or go home after they are completely awake. There is no serious pain complaint after the operation. The surgical site is bandaged and left in place for about two days. Mild bruising and swelling may occur around the eyes. This image disappears within a week and the patient continues his normal life.
