The brow lift is a very popular procedure with men and women who are looking for a more rejuvenated, refreshed appearance. However, many people don’t know that there are multiple brow lift techniques. Dr. Hueneke, having being board-certified in plastic surgery for more than 20 years, finds that the endoscopic brow lift procedure is almost always the best way to go. Here’s why.
Endoscopic Brow Lifts use Smaller Incisions
A traditional brow lift technique typically involves a very long incision over the top of the head that extends from ear to ear. This incision often leaves a very prominent scar causing an unnatural part to the hair. An endoscopic brow lift, on the other hand, uses a series of small incisions that are hidden behind the hairline. This incision technique allows patients to avoid the unsightly scar and minimize disruption to their natural hair growth.
The Surgeon has a Magnified View of the Surgical Field
An endoscopic brow lift refers to the endoscope instrument Dr. Hueneke uses during the procedure. This instrument improves the doctor’s visual capabilities during surgery by projecting that view onto a high-definition monitor. The endoscope helps Dr. Hueneke be able to see what he’s doing in greater detail than he can see with the human eyes alone.
Endoscopic Brow Lifts are Less Risky
Because the endoscope provides a visual of the surgical area in great detail, it provides Dr. Hueneke the opportunity to maneuver through your muscles, tissues, and nerves much more carefully than he would be able to without it. This provides much less risk that your sensory nerves in the treated area will be damaged throughout the brow lift, meaning loss of sensation in the surgical area following your procedure is much less likely than with a traditional brow lift.
Recovery is Quicker
An endoscopic brow lift has a much faster recovery period than a traditional brow lift. This is because the incisions made during an endoscopic brow lift are much smaller than the large incision made during a traditional brow lift. You can expect to be able to go back to work and other regular daily activities for about one to two weeks following your procedure.
