Exploring the ENDOTINE® TransBleph Lift for Facial Rejuvenation
This procedure is reserved for patients who will be undergoing upper blepharoplasty (or upper eyelid skin, muscle, and/or fat excision) and have very little excess skin in the forehead, have little in the way of cross-forehead creases, but do have significant brow droop (brow ptosis). It may also be used in cases where skin and creases are present, but the patient only wants to address brow position, and through the least invasive approach.
Marks are made to outline the amount of skin to be removed from the upper eyelids. The skin is excised, along with muscle, and possibly fat. Excess is gained to the space under the eyebrows, and over the skull bone. Adequate release is assured by elevating the skin and witnessing re-positioning of the eyebrows in a symmetric fashion. Two symmetric drill holes are made in the outer portion of the skull. This is done with a drill bit that is protected from entering too deep into the bone. The fixation devices are deployed. They look like plastic hang-hooks. The skin is re-draped over the hooks in the desired position. A compressive dressing is then applied to allow the forehead soft tissues to scar in the appropriate position.
Understanding the Procedure
The ENDOTINE® TransBleph Lift is a cutting-edge technique that combines the benefits of eyelid and brow lift procedures to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance. This innovative approach involves the use of the ENDOTINE® device, which provides precise positioning and long-lasting results.
How It Works
During the ENDOTINE® TransBleph Lift, a small implant is strategically placed to elevate the brows and improve the appearance of the upper eyelids. This implant acts as an anchor, holding the tissues in the desired position and providing support for optimal rejuvenation. By precisely positioning the implant, the surgeon can lift the brow and smooth out forehead wrinkles, creating a more youthful and harmonious facial appearance.
Advantages of the ENDOTINE® TransBleph Lift
The ENDOTINE® TransBleph Lift offers several advantages over traditional approaches. First, it allows for simultaneous enhancement of both the upper eyelids and brows through a single incision, minimizing scarring and reducing the overall recovery time. Additionally, the precise implant placement ensures long-lasting and natural-looking results.
The ENDOTINE® TransBleph Lift is typically performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the patient’s comfort level and the surgeon’s recommendation. After the anesthesia is administered, the surgeon makes a small incision to access the treatment area. The ENDOTINE® device is then inserted and positioned to lift the brows and tighten the upper eyelid skin.
Recovery and Results
Following the ENDOTINE® TransBleph Lift, patients may experience some swelling and bruising, which gradually subsides over time. It is important to follow the post-operative instructions provided by the surgeon to ensure proper healing and optimize results. Most can resume normal activities within a week or two, enjoying a rejuvenated, youthful look.
In conclusion, the ENDOTINE® TransBleph Lift offers a unique approach to facial rejuvenation, combining the benefits of upper eyelid and brow lift procedures. With precise implant placement and minimal scarring, this innovative technique provides long-lasting results and enhances the overall harmony of the face. Consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine if the ENDOTINE® TransBleph Lift is the right choice for you.
