Why can a frontal lift be needed?
The main reason for demanding an endoscopic frontal facelift is the descent of the original position of the soft tissues of our body that occurs as we age. This is due to the action of gravity and the morphological changes caused by age, sun exposure, stress, etc.. One of the regions with the greatest impact on facial aging is the upper third of the face (brow and brow) both for its meaning of facial expression and for what represents a good position of the eyebrows as a sign of youth.
What is the endoscopic frontal facelift?
The endoscopic frontal facelift is performed by two small incisions at the level of the scalp and, through endoscopic procedure, the dissection of the frontal region to the tail of the eyebrow is performed, controlling and respecting the supraorbital and supratrochlear vessels and nerves.
Differences between the endoscopic frontal facelift and the traditional
For the treatment of frontal wrinkles and frown lines, eyebrow elevation and forehead lift, the classic frontal lift procedure uses the bicoronal incision, normally located within the scalp and extending from ear to ear.
The endoscopic frontal facelift allows obtaining good aesthetic results, avoiding possible complications derived from the classic frontal facelift, such as the large coronal scar and scarring alopecia in the area.
If the deformity is not very pronounced, we could also treat this entire region through the incision of the upper blepharoplasty (incision located in the upper eyelid).
Front suspension method - ENDOTINE®
During the endoscopic frontal facelift, to maintain skin traction without scalp resection, we use a tension or tension system called ENDOTINE® that achieves the elevation of the outer third of the eyebrow (eyebrow tail) and skin stretch in the frontal region, achieving a more youthful look (rejuvenation of the look).
It is a resorbable device (therefore there will be no need to remove it in a 2nd surgical procedure) for the fixation of soft tissues in frontal lifting surgery. With Endotine®, it is not necessary to use sutures to fix the tissues, thus preventing their dehiscence and preventing tissue strangulation.
