Facial skin starts to sag with the passing effects of gravity and exposure to sunlight, producing jowls and dark circles. One of the main cosmetic procedures for flipping back the hands of time and offering a younger, more rejuvenated facial look to men and women has been the facelift.

An endoscopic facelift is particularly efficient in treating problems such as frown lines and facial folds such as smile lines, targeting the upper and central part of a person’s face. Dr. Yakup Avsar, cosmetic surgeon, performs the facelift using an endoscope to eliminate incisions and post-surgical scarring.

With the charm lift, you can receive all of the same rejuvenating benefits of a traditional facelift, but the surgery is scarless, and that means a quicker, smoother recovery time afterwards. Using an endoscope (a long, thin tube with a lighted camera at the end) helps Dr. Yakup Avsar to precisely see hard to reach areas below the skin, without having to make wide, extended incisions. To decrease the presence of any incision lines or marks, only tiny incisions in the hair-bearing scalp region.

The Difference Between the Traditional and the Charm Lift

Unlike the traditional face lift, the vector of up-lifting in endoscopic lift surgery is the same as the vector of aging face so the result is natural and brings the features of a charm to the face. Just Like the traditional facelift, the endoscopic facelift works to minimize wrinkles and strengthen, boost sagging facial features. Therefore, using fiber optic and endoscopic technology, the endoscopic facelift can make for a less invasive procedure that can provide patients with several key benefits. A long, narrow tube with a lighted camera (endoscope) at the end is used during the endoscopic process to view the underlying structure under the surface. To carefully tighten sagging facial skin and soft tissue, telescopic instruments are then used to result in a firmer, more well-contoured look. Unlike the traditional facelift, an endoscopic facelift address concerns of excess skin with hidding it in the scalp region and up-lifting the underlying structure and resolving the sagging or drooping facial features.

Smaller Incisions

During an endoscopic facelift, Dr. Yakup Avsar use an endoscope to view and access hard to reach areas under the skin. This helps to tighten and firm the face correctly without having to make lengthy, extended incisions. Instead, only minor incisions made along the hairline are needed for an endoscopic facelift. As the features of a ‘charm’ results from the endoscopic facelift, it is named as charm lift.

Shorter Recovery Time

Recovery from an endoscopic facelift is always shorter than that of a traditional facelift. Since the treatment is less invasive, the body may not take too much time to recover properly. Swelling and bruising will normally be healed in around two weeks, but most patients will be able to return to work after only one week.

Ideal Candidates for the Charm Lift

An endoscopic facelift aims to tighten and reshape the underlying facial muscles and tissues in order to create a more youthful look. The treatment is directed at the upper and middle third regions of the face and is ideally suited to improving problems such as:
Frown lines between the eyes
Line of Marionette Nasolabial fold
Sagging of the cheeks
However, the endoscopic facelift does not treat regions of loose, excess skin, such as extreme jowling and areas of loose skin around the chin or jaw. During your appointment with Dr. Yakup Avsar, your facial anatomy will be closely monitored to decide if you are a suitable fit for an endoscopic facelift. Endoscopic facelift can be particularly successful for men and women in the 30s, 40s or 50s who have mild symptoms of facial ageing without significant quantities of sagging skin.

What to Expect from Your Charm Lift

It’ll take a few weeks for some bruises and swelling to fade after the endoscopic facelift operation. In the next 1-2 days after the operation, a loved one is a good way to help you take care of yourself. Your treatment will result in a tighter, more elegant contouring of your facial features as well as a natural lift. Patients undertaking the procedure appear up to the age of ten years. The outcomes are long-term, but you will continue to aged and should consider a secondary procedure 5-10 years after the first operation. The endoscopic facelift operates essentially to push back the hands of time, but no surgical treatment can freeze time indefinitely. This means that even if you’re already getting older, you’re going to look younger than you ever have had without surgery.
