Endoscopic Facelift Before and After Photos
There are many types of facelift surgery. A facelift is a procedure designed to lift and tighten areas of loose skin, descended fat and muscle, and reposition aging tissues. It can be broken down into three areas. The first is the forehead and eyebrow region, the second is the midface/cheek region, and the third is the jawline and neck. A facelift procedure can target one of these areas, two of these areas, or all three areas. The term endoscopic refers to using thin telescopes to access the upper two thirds of the face (eyebrow/brow and midface/cheek). This allows our surgeons a magnified view working through very small incisions, that would be much larger if no endoscopes were used. It is a technically challenging dissection, requires specialized instrumentation and a video tower, and is performed by a minority of plastic surgeons. Our surgeons consider endoscopic techniques to be one of the great advancements in facial plastic surgery in the last few decades. Because endoscopic facial surgery is performed from incisions behind the forehead hairline, it requires a near vertical lift of facial tissues, which leads to natural results. We age from a top to bottom direction, not back to front. The endoscopic facelift approach is in fact frequently used to treat the windswept look associated with traditional facelifts. Our surgeons have special expertise in revision facelift surgery using endoscopic midface lifts to reposition sagging cheek tissues that were never addressed during a traditional facelift. The endoscopic facelift is performed in the deepest plane of facelift surgery, directly on the facial bones, under the periosteum covering the facial bones. The periosteum is lifted and readheres to the underlying facial skeleton, bringing the overlying skin, fat and muscle with it.
