When patients begin to notice the tell-tale signs of aging on the face, most begin contemplating a facelift. While a facelift is one of the more widely known cosmetic surgery procedures, it is not always the right option for patients. Dr. Peter Brownrigg offers an array of facial plastic surgery procedures that allow him to meet the specific needs and desires of each patient. Many patients have visible signs of aging, such as loose skin, creases, and wrinkles primarily on the upper third of the face. For these Ottawa patients, an endoscopic brow lift can address these concerns while resulting in a shortened recovery period and minimal scarring.
A brow lift, which is also known as a forehead lift, is performed in order to lift and tighten the skin from the brow line in order to smooth out lines and wrinkles. By making manipulations to the upper third of the face, Dr. Brownrigg can rejuvenate the area of the face that most commonly shows early signs of aging. Dr. Brownrigg takes the benefits of a traditional brow lift one step further by utilizing the endoscopic brow lift technique. This technique results in a quicker recovery and leaves minimal scarring, which is easily hidden once healed.
While a traditional brow lift requires an incision that spans the width of the forehead at the scalp, the endoscopic technique uses three small incisions that are hidden behind the hairline. Through these incisions, Dr. Brownrigg inserts an endoscope, a small surgical tool that has a camera, which grants Dr. Brownrigg full visibility of the manipulations being made to the underlying facial muscles. Once the appropriate alterations have been made, Dr. Brownrigg will close the incisions and recovery will begin.
Dr. Brownrigg chooses to use the endoscopic technique for brow lift surgery because it offers his patients a range of benefits exclusive to this technique. Patients who undergo the endoscopic facelift technique can expect the following benefits:
