Tired of Getting Asked If You’re Tired?
December 28, 2018
Are you tired? Seems like a fairly innocent question, which is warranted under certain circumstances like staying up late for a celebration, pulling an all-nighter to complete a project, or having a new baby.
However, the natural aging process and environmental factors can cause skin laxity, bags, puffiness, and lines that make you look exhausted all the time.
If you’re tired of people asking if you’re tired, keep reading to learn how an endoscopic brow lift, upper blepharoplasty, and lower blepharoplasty can help you achieve a brighter and well-rested appearance.
What Is an Endoscopic Brow Lift?
An endoscopic brow lift is a surgical procedure performed under general anesthesia, often in conjunction with eyelid surgery.
The goal of this treatment is to reduce forehead lines and creases, diminish frown lines between the eyebrows, and lift sagging eyebrows to revitalize the upper portion of the face.
How Is an Endoscopic Brow Lift Performed?
To start, several incisions are made along the hairline and an endoscope is inserted, which allows the surgeon to visualize the anatomy on an imaging screen. During the procedure, small portions of the corrugator muscle are excised to eliminate existing frown lines and prevent future ones from forming.
An endoscopic brow lift also involves elevating the position of the brows and securing them with sutures or an absorbable fixation device.
What Is Blepharoplasty?
An upper blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia, and it addresses loose, hanging skin and fat in the upper eyelids. Not only does this treatment rejuvenate the eyes and make then look more open, it can also lift lids that may be obstructing vision.
A lower blepharoplasty targets under eye bags, puffiness, and sagging of the lower eyelid and typically requires general anesthesia.
How Is Blepharoplasty Performed?
During upper eyelid surgery, an incision is made in the eyelid fold, where it will be hidden. Then excess fat and skin are removed.
For lower eyelid surgery, an incision is made under the eyelash line, and excess fat is removed or repositioned, muscles are tightened, and excess skin is eliminated.
All of the procedures produce visible rejuvenation of the upper face, but when performed together, patients look remarkably younger and more refreshed.
