The Endoscopic Brow Lift
In the endoscopic brow lift procedure, three small incisions above the hairline are placed. Through these incisions, the tissues are accessed below the skin with surgical instruments and an endoscope (a small light and camera attached to a cable that is connected to a video monitor). The skin is then lifted in order to smooth wrinkles and elevate the eye brow area. Recovery time is less as the incisions are smaller, but the debate on whether the endoscopic method is as long lasting and effective as the traditional brow lift procedure.
Suture Brow Lift
The most advanced, effective and elegant method for brow lifting is the Suture Brow Lift. This is absolutely NOT to be confused with the ineffective ‘thread lifting’ that was popular a few years ago.
What Happens During the Suture Lift Procedure?
After making comfortable with a light sedative, the area around the eyebrows is made numb with local anaesthetic injection. Two tiny punctures are made in the hair line of each eyebrow, and a special patented antimicrobial suture is passed under the skin of the eyebrow.
The lifted tissues are secured to stable structures beneath the muscle to make the lift permanent. You’ll also get a slight lifting effect to the corners of the eyes, so those unflattering crows’ feet will be significantly reduced.
Will I Feel Different Afterwards?
The Suture Brow Lift last approximately for seven to 10 years, but because the sutures have been placed so deeply, you won’t be able to feel them.
As this elegant procedure is virtually scar-less, no-one will ever know you’ve had it done. Your appearance is much more youthful and refreshed. The reason this procedure has become SO popular is that overall result is much more subtle and natural. No more ‘wind tunnel’ faces!
Is this more expensive than traditional brow lifts?
The REAL saving with this procedure is on your time, you haven't got the risks associated with undergoing general anaesthesia, and it's scarless.
Can the Suture Brow Lift be done at the same time as another procedure?
Quite often, patients will ask to have this procedure done in combination with Blepharoplasty or face lift. Your particular needs are assessed at the time of consultation and will advise you on what results you can realistically expect, and what procedures, if any, are appropriate for you.
