Endotine Fixation Device

By Dr. Suzanne Yee on October 07, 2009

Hello Everyone! I just wanted to inform you about a device I use called the Endotine Fixation Device.  This device is bioabsorbable and is used in Endoscopic Browlifts and Endoscopic Mid-face (Cheek)  lifts instead of the conventional screws.   The Endotine Fixation Device attaches soft tissue to bone, allowing the two to tighten and adhere in a natural way.  During surgery, I can manipulate the device to achieve the desired outcome.  After the healing process, the Fixation Device gradually dissolves instead of having to be surgically removed. The Endotine Fixation Device has multiple advantages over the original  method, including;  aesthetic control, secure distribution of tension, decrease in surgery time, less hair loss, less scaring, reduced swelling, and the device is absorbable.  Another big advantage  is the procedure is ENDOSCOPIC  and the incisions  used are  small and hidden in the hairline.  There are no long incisions like the traditional open browlifts and mid-face lifts. If you are considering a browlift or mid face lift, I would definitely consider this great option!   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! The link below is a before and after photo set of a patient who has had a procedure using the Endotine Fixation Device. http://www.drsuzanneyee.com/photogallery/face-2351/case-16-18770
