Question : What is an endoscopic facelift? How is it different from a regular facelift?
Answer : Facelift, in general, refers to lifting the skin off the mid face and suspending the deeper tissues. The endoscopic facelift refers to an approach to do this using an endoscope with minimal incisions. This means that the incision is not as large and the healing time may be quicker. However, the result may not be as long lasting. Also, various techniques of endoscopic approaches can be combined with the traditional approach with good result.
