What is Endoscopic Lifting / Cat eyes?

Endoscopic lift is a technique of surgical face lifting using the endoscopic method, where all the manipulations are carried out through small incisions done in between the hair, and with the support of a camera system called endoscope. Due to the endoscopic access, the surgery leaves no visible scars, and its minimal invasiveness reduces injury during the intervention, significantly decreasing the recovery period.

Endoscopic lifting can be applied to the forehead and eyebrow area to rejuvenate the upper third of the face. Thus, effectively solving the problem of droopy eye corners, lifting the outer edge of the eyebrow, and eliminating deep wrinkles and folds in the temporal region.

Endoscopic lifting can also be applied to the midface, helping to tighten the tissues and restore the volume of the cheek area. With the endoscopic lift, the skin is not excised, so this kind of procedure is not recommended for patients with excess skin.

Endoscopic lifting and Cat Eyes

Endoscopic Lifting procedures let us work with the eye shape in cases where the patient wants to achieve a Cat Eye/ Fox Eye look. Here, the contour of the eye is lifted to create a more slanted and dramatic look, changing the patient’s facial expression and making it look more attractive. In these cases, since “Cat Eyes” or “Fox Eyes” surgery is performed through the same small incisions made for the endoscopic method at the scalp, there is no visible scar after recovery.


How long is the recovery process?

The recovery process can vary individually. Generally, patients can expect some mild discomfort, such as swelling and headaches, in the first few days or weeks following the procedure. Most people can resume their daily activities within two to three weeks, but full recovery and final results may take several months.

Is Cat Eyes a surgical operation or a clinical procedure?

The Cat Eyes look can be achieved both with surgery or with thread lifting methods with either permanent or absorbable threads, specially on patients who are afraid of surgery. It is important to understand that the results obtained with surgical and non-surgical approaches will not be the same. For better fixation and longer lasting results, the preferred technique for Cat Eyes is surgery with the endoscopic method.

Are the results of the procedures long-lasting?

The results of Endoscopic Lifting operations are long-lasting. However, the aging process naturally continues, and individual factors such as genetics and lifestyle habits can influence the longevity of the results. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, following post-operative care instructions, and regularly consulting with the medical team can help monitor your progress and address any concern.
