Feeling young and looking our best does wonders for our self-perception, confidence, and overall happiness. But as we naturally age, the reality of fine lines, wrinkles, and less voluminous skin can begin to affect our youthful spirits. Thankfully, there are countless ways to combat the troublesome signs of aging—one of which is our first-rate endoscopic brow lift in Knoxville, TN, right here at the practice of Dr. Dean Kleto.
A brow lift is an ideal way to improve the appearance of your eyebrows and forehead. By lifting the skin and muscles of your forehead, our outstanding, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kleto can provide you with a smooth, firm, and youthful appearance that can restore your confidence and renew your feelings of satisfaction with the way you look.
Endoscopic Brow Lift in Tennessee
Traditionally, this facial plastic surgery procedure required long incisions along the hairline. With modern advancements in plastic surgery, Knox County plastic surgeon, Dr. Kleto offers his patients the options for an endoscopic brow lift.
With an endoscopic brow lift, Dr. Kleto will only need to make very small incisions throughout your scalp, through which tiny surgical instruments can be inserted to provide a detailed visual map of your forehead. Through these same incisions, excess skin and muscle of your forehead and eyebrows are lifted into a more attractive position. Dr. Kleto will secure your skin in this position with temporary sutures before applying surgical dressing. The sutures will be removed within one week.
The Benefits of an Endoscopic Brow Lift
Brow lifts in Knoxville, TN, provide a wonderful array of benefits that are the crux of their popularity. These benefits include:
- Reducing excess facial skin
- Reducing the noticeability of “crow’s feet.”
- Restoring your natural eyebrow arches
- Reducing upper eyelid sagging
However, there are several benefits to an endoscopic brow lift specifically, including:
- Reduced surgical time
- Reduces risk for common surgical complications
- Reduced recovery time
- Reduced scarring
- Effective for both patients with minimal and advanced signs of aging
So, to ensure that you receive all of these great benefits easily, you need a highly-qualified and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Kleto to help the whole procedure go as smoothly and effectively as possible.
How to Prepare for an Endoscopic Brow Lift
During your initial consultation, once you’ve decided that an endoscopic brow lift in Knoxville, TN, is the right choice for you, Dr. Kleto will tell you everything you need to know and do before you arrive for your brow lift. This will include certain lifestyle restrictions, such as refraining from drinking and smoking prior to the procedure, as well as avoiding certain medications.
You’ll also want to be sure you have a reliable source of transportation for your way back from the brow lift, as it is absolutely necessary that you do not drive yourself home unless you intend to spend a night or two in the hospital once the procedure is completed. This is because—to ensure that the entire process is quick and painless for you—you will be given an anesthetic sedative which will take some time to fully wear off.
Your Post-Brow Lift Recovery
Just like your preparation, Dr. Kleto will also give you specific instructions on what you should and should not do after the procedure to ensure your personal safety and the best brow lift results possible. This will include, but isn’t limited to:
- Sleeping with your head adequately elevated
- Taking the recommended pain medications
- Safe washing and drying your healing incisions
- Refraining from exercise for a time
During your recovery, you may experience some side effects, such as itching, numbness, swelling, and slight discomfort. But, by following the instructions laid out to you by Dr. Kleto, the recovery process will be over before you know it!
