Harvey “Chip” Cole, III, MD, FACS founder and owner of Oculus Plastic Surgery and Specialty Surgery Center talks about the endoscopic facelift as a minimally invasive alternative to a full facelift with maximum results..
ATLANTA, GA, April 3, 2019: Founder and Owner of Oculus Plastic Surgery and Specialty Surgery Center, Harvey “Chip” Cole, III, MD, FACS posted a new article on the Oculus website entitled, “The Endoscopic Cheek Lift: Minimally Invasive More Youthful Fullness,” in which Dr. Cole gives an overview of the procedure.
As Dr. Cole states, “Full cheeks have always been a sign of youth.” He adds, “Both health and youthfulness are embodied in full, rosy red cheeks. And if you happen to be blessed with naturally high cheekbones you are probably the envy of all your friends.”
“As age takes its toll,” says Dr. Cole, if you weren’t genetically blessed with high cheekbones, you may notice the cheeks begin to sag. This tends to draw the entire weight of the face downward. Very often, this sagging can also pull the lower eyelid downward creating a permanent look of tiredness.”
Dr. Cole explains, “Mid-face laxity, as it is called, is a result of all of life’s assaults: gravity, sun exposure and environmental and emotional stresses take their toll on the face. Once the cheek muscles sag and the fat in the cheeks diminishes, a hollowing occurs.” “In addition,” he says, “you may notice the folds that run from the corner of the base of the nose to the corner of the mouth, are more prominent, adding to the downward trend. Just as full cheeks are a sign of health and youthfulness, hollow cheeks are a sign of illness and/or old age.”
According to Dr. Cole, “You don’t have to live with that,” referring to sagging, hollow cheeks. He continues elaborating, “And you don’t have to go through the more invasive full-face lift. There is a far less invasive procedure referred to as an endoscopic cheek lift. Endoscopic means small incisions are made into which a tiny camera is inserted along with a product called Endotine®, which is a stabilization device made of a dissolvable suture material. This holds the soft tissues securely as they heal and dissolve over time. The cheek remains in a youthful position.”
