Endoscopic Lift

Endoscopic methods have marked a revolution in surgery during the recent 15 years. It would have been impossible, of course, not to make a grand entrance in the field of plastic surgery, where, as it is known, surgeons aim for minimum incisions, zero recovery time and optimum results.

A characteristic example is the endoscopic facelift where 5 cm long incisions are made along on the temporal region, well concealed inside the hair. The procedure is performed through there. Under general anaesthesia and with the use of a special endoscope, we first detach the surface tissues of the face above the temporal fascia, while when we move below the jugal bones the level of detachment is deeper (underneath the periosteum).

Tissue release can be further facilitated with small incisions inside the oral cavity. Relocation then follows with support of the tissues with strong absorbable stitches and wound suture. This way we can correct nasomalar grooves, laxity of the mid-face (lifting and enhancement of tissues above the jugal bones) as well as below the eyelids.

It is clear that the extent of incisions in a procedure will increase its gravity and, of course, recovery time after surgery. Therefore, in the case of endoscopic facelift incisions are very small. Since the entire procedure is performed on the deep tissues, ecchymosis is also prevented.

Moreover, an elastic bandage is used for 3 days and along with appropriate medication it may limit swelling to the minimum and help the patient resume activities very soon.
