Endoscopic and non-endoscopic brow lift – Cannes & Nice | Dr. Victor Médard de Chardon
The face generally portrays the first visible signs of ageing. Most patients looking for facial rejuvenation think that their facial features do not reflect their young spirit and energy levels. There are several techniques for rejuvenating the forehead and gaze by smoothing wrinkles and lifting sagging eyebrows:
•Coronal brow lift
•Endoscopic brow lift
•Injection of Botulinum toxin (Botox)
Dr. Victor Médard de Chardon will determine the best technique for rejuvenating your forehead and gaze depending on your expectations, and will explain it to you.
A combination of the following signs determines whether a patient is a good candidate for a brow lift:
•Low position of the eyebrows creating a tired or sad appearance
•Deep horizontal lines in the forehead
•Marked frown lines
Most often a brow lift is performed to treat ageing of the upper 1/3 of the face, but may also be performed in a young adult with a short forehead.
BROW LIFT PRINCIPLES
There are two brow lift techniques: the “standard” coronal brow lift and the endoscopic brow lift.
The coronal brow lift creates a long, continuous scar that is masked in the hair. The endoscopic brow lift creates 3 to 5 incisions of about 1 cm masked in the hair.
The muscles responsible for lowering the eyebrows and wrinkles are weakened in order to lift up the eyebrows and erase the wrinkles.
During a coronal brow lift the excess skin is removed. During an endoscopic brow lift the skin is totally preserved.
The skin and musculo-aponeurotic tissues are then “fixed” to the skin.
The principle is thus to fight against the effects of gravity and restore the youthfulness of the forehead and eyebrows.
BROW LIFT SEQUELAE
Oedema: 7 to 15 days Most of the swelling is generally noted in the first 24 to 48 hours
Bruising: 7 to 15 days
There is an immediate visible result but the final result should be considered in the 6th month. The results of the brow lift may be subtle or more significant, depending on your appearance before the surgery and the specific objective you and your surgeon have established.
