Endotine Facelift in Prague
Endotine facelift is a system developed in the USA. Using super-soft absorbable implants which are inserted under the skin in the face and neck.
What’s the main attraction of this procedure? Endotine Facelift only required a local anaesthetic.
Cleverly the implant hold the soft tissues into the desired lifted position. After the procedure a new fibrous structures begins to form under the skin which continues to support the tissue in place even after the implant has fully dissolved. The Endoline facelift method is used either on its own or as an optimal complementation, to a conventional face lift surgery procedure.
The Endotin implants are inserted through tiny incisions offers a highly effective alternative to either a conventional forehead/ brow lift or facelift-neck lift. The patented design of the implants guarantees the safe tissue fixation in the new position and moreover it enables easily re-adjustment to the positioning of the tissue at any time thus enabling further correction as and when required.
The result of the two procedures is a really rejuvenated look which in the past would have involved several procedures a general anaesthetic and major downtime.
Problems with agging skin on the middle section of the face can be corrected using two types of adjustment implants namely the Endotine midface lift. After inserting the endotine implant the surgeon lifts the tissue with the help of a strip which is part of the implant. Since the entire system is very simple the surgeon has absolute control over the EXTENT of the skin and he needs to lift and exactly where. Once everything is settled into the desired position slowly the implant is absorbed by the body but the result are long lasting.
The midface ST implant is inserted through an incision on the temple or from inside the oral cavity (anchored by the suture in the subcutaneous area) and tissue which enables a lift in the area of lines Between the mouth and nose. Since the length of the fixation is adjustable, the surgeon can lift your skin exactly as you wish. The midface B fixation is used to lift the area of the “cheeks”, and tissue around the cheekbones. It is inserted safely and without scars through the inner side of the lower eyelid where it is anchored in the lower eye socket.
Thanks to this implant droopy cheeks can be lifted in the vertical direction.
In the Czech Republic, the Endontine facelift technique is performed only by a limited number of surgeons.
