Endotine Fixation Device
By Dr. Suzanne Yee on October 07, 2009
Hello Everyone! I just wanted to inform you about a device I useÂ called the Endotine Fixation Device.Â This device is bioabsorbable and isÂ used in Endoscopic Browlifts and Endoscopic Mid-face (Cheek) Â lifts instead of the conventional screws.Â Â The Endotine Fixation Device attaches soft tissue to bone, allowing the two to tighten and adhere in a natural way.Â During surgery,Â I can manipulate the device toÂ achieve the desired outcome.Â Â After the healingÂ process, the Fixation Device gradually dissolves instead of having to be surgically removed. The Endotine Fixation Device has multiple advantages over the originalÂ method, including;Â aesthetic control, secure distribution of tension, decrease in surgery time, less hair loss, less scaring,Â reduced swelling, and the device is absorbable.Â Â Another bigÂ advantageÂ is the procedure is ENDOSCOPIC Â and the incisionsÂ used areÂ small and hidden in the hairline.Â There are no long incisions like the traditional open browlifts and mid-face lifts. If you are considering a browlift or mid face lift,Â I would definitely consider this great option!Â Â I will be more than happy to discuss procedures using the Endotine Fixation Device during a consultation. Call our office at any time and schedule your consultation!
