What is an endoscopic lift?
The endoscopic lift, or endolift, is a surgical procedure performed to tighten the skin and, as a minimally invasive technique, it causes considerably less scarring than the traditional lift. It is recommended for the treatment of flaws in the upper third of the face (such as bags under the eyes, sagging brows, wrinkles between eyebrows, crow’s feet).
Why is it done?
Loss of firmness and skin sagging are visible signs of ageing that affect facial expression and also affect the confidence and self-esteem of many patients.
What does it involve?
Endolifting does not require extensive incisions; instead the surgeon only needs to make a few small incisions (2-3 mm) through which a small video camera is inserted under the patient’s skin. Endolifting represents the optimal technology for correcting and smoothening facial signs of ageing, tightening muscles, removing excess fat and repositioning skin without leaving scars.
How to prepare for it
No preparation is required as this is a minimally invasive procedure. Generally, the specialist in Aesthetic Medicine will have a consultation with you to assess your health.
Recovery after endolifting is more rapid than with conventional lifting. You will be able to resume your normal routine a few hours after the intervention, and the scars will gradually diminish until they are virtually imperceptible.
