The male endoscopic brow lift is an excellent facial rejuvenation procedure for men. It is particularly attractive for the male patient because of its non-invasive nature.
According to Top Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon Dr. Renato Calabria, too often the position of the eyebrow is neglected when considering an improvement in the upper third of the male aging face.
The common mistake committed by patients and doctors alike is to fault the redundant skin on the eyelid for the “tired look” instead on focusing on the position of the eyebrow. Eyebrows follow the gravity rule and descend, causing redundant skin of the eyelid. When the eyebrow position is low, it is much more natural to address the position of the eyebrow, but the tendency is to perform a blepharoplasty in order to excise the excess skin. Using the wrong indication is a recipe for disaster. In fact there is nothing worst then see a man with the classic “overdone” look of the eyelids. In addition, the lower position of the eyebrow affects the forehead. In order to compensate for the low position, we move the frontalis muscle, causing even more forehead lines.
The endoscopic brow lift offers a great solution in men. It is performed using 4 small tiny incisions in the scalp. Through these incisions, using an endoscope and specially designed instrument, the tissues are re-positioned and anchored in place with Endotine (a special completely absorbable fixation suture). The procedure takes less then 1 hour to complete and just a few days to recuperate. Best of all, no visible scars are present. This procedure is often used in combination with a middle and lower third facial rejuvenation surgery.
Dr. Calabria believes that the upper third of the aging face is overlooked in the male patient and that properly addressing the aging process of the eyebrow and forehead is crucial in delivering a natural result.
