As we age, we begin to notice little things that are making a difference in our facial structure. For example, as muscles and underlying tissues begin to sag, aging signs may become visible to friends and relatives. This sagging can actually make you look much older than you really are. In the beginning of this process, make-up can help a bit, but ultimately we have to realize that more than make-up is needed.

The eyes, especially, are prone to aging more quickly than the rest of the face. Sagging eyelids and the dreaded “number 11” between the brows can make you look fatigued and as if you are scowling. These days many people have taken to plastic surgery to relieve this problem. An endoscopic brow lift can last as long as ten years and makes a real difference to the eye and brow area.

This procedure, which is safe, effective and one of the most common plastic surgeries, elevates the brow area. It can be done with complementary procedures such as an eyelid lift, a mid-face lift or a full face lift. You can be sure that an endoscopic brow lift will restore the look of youth to the area. The fact that it can last up to ten years is a real plus.

After having the procedure, you will feel some discomfort instead of pain. This can be alleviated by taking oral medications. Off time is from 7 to 10 days. Because you will be given a local anaesthetic and IV sedation, you will be completely unaware of the surgery. Most of the swelling will be gone in the 7 to 10 days, with complete healing over a few more weeks. The incisions are concealed in the patient’s hairline and will ultimately become completely unnoticeable.
