ENDOSCOPIC
PLASTIC SURGERY IN
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA

Endoscopy is a surgical technique that involves the use of an endoscope, a special viewing instrument that allows Dr. Csikai to see a live video stream of the surgical procedures he is performing through very small incisions.

Endoscopic surgery has been used for decades in a number of different procedures, including gallbladder removal, tubal ligation, and knee surgery. Dr. Csikai has been performing endoscopic cosmetic plastic surgery procedures to limit the invasiveness of procedures, reduce recovery times and limit scaring for over 20 years.

ABOUT THE ENDOSCOPE

An endoscope combines a flexible tubular wand fitted with a tiny camera and bright light and a video screen that allows the surgeon to examine internal areas of the body and perform surgical procedures without the need for large incisions. During surgery, Dr. Csikai performs the procedure by watching the video monitor and maneuvering the endoscope wand as needed.

It’s important to understand that the endoscope is inserted through a small incision and functions as a viewing device only. Other surgical instruments such as scalpels or forceps are inserted through other small incisions to perform the surgical procedure.

YOUR INITIAL CONSULTATION

If you are interested in endoscopic plastic surgery for one of the procedures below, Dr. Csikai will examine the respective areas to determine if you are a candidate for endoscopy. During your initial consultation, you will be able to ask any question you might have about endoscopic plastic surgery and how it is performed with the procedures you are interested in.

If Dr. Csikai approves you for an endoscopic procedure and you decide that endoscopy is right for you, a surgery coordinator will provide you with detailed information about preparing for your endoscopic plastic surgery, including guidelines on eating and drinking, smoking, and taking or avoiding certain vitamins, supplements and medications. If you smoke, it is especially important to stop smoking at least a week or two before your surgery and during your recovery period. Smoking inhibits blood flow to the skin, and can slow your recovery and affect your final results. In preparing for your endoscopic plastic surgery in Jacksonville, arrange for a friend or family member to drive you home after your surgery.

Endoscopic plastic surgery can bring significant benefits to the right patients. Procedures that can be performed endoscopically or even partially with the endoscope tend to be less invasive and require smaller and fewer incisions which can lead to faster recovery times and less visible scaring. An endoscope can be used to perform the following plastic surgery procedures.

TUMMY TUCK

Endoscopy can be used in the tummy tuck procedure for selected patients who have lost abdominal muscle tone. Dr. Csikai is able to use the endoscope to view the muscles that run vertically down the length of the abdomen through small incisions and tighten them to reshape and contour the abdominal area. However, endoscopy is generally not used for patients who have a significant amount of loose abdominal skin.

BREAST AUGMENTATION

The endoscope can allow Dr. Csikai to positioning breast implants within the chest wall through a small incision in the underarm or the navel. This can eliminate the need for visible fold incisions under the breast and less chance of nerve damage. Endoscopy may also be used to remove capsular contracture, (scar tissue that sometimes forms around an implant and causing breast to feel firm).

FACELIFT

Although the traditional facelift operation is still the best choice for most patients, especially patients with a significant amount of excess skin, certain patients may benefit from an endoscopically assisted procedure. When an endoscope is used the customary incision along or in the hairline is usually eliminated. Instead, small incisions may be strategically placed in areas where the most correction is needed. If the muscles and skin of the mid-face need to be smoothed and tightened, incisions may be hidden in the lower eyelid and inside of the upper lip. To tighten the loose muscles of the neck, incisions may be concealed beneath the chin and behind the ears. The endoscope may also assist in the positioning of cheek and chin implants.

FOREHEAD LIFT OR BROWLIFT

Plastic surgeons perform the forehead lift procedure using the endoscope more than with any other procedure. Instead of the usual ear-to-ear incision, a few incisions are made at or slightly above the forehead hairline. The endoscope is then used with other surgical instruments to weakening or removing the muscles that produce frown lines and slightly raise the patient’s eyebrows for a brighter and more youthful appearance.

KEY BENEFITS OF ENDOSCOPY

Endoscopic surgery scars are likely to be hidden and much smaller. And recovery after an endoscopic procedure can be faster and more comfortable than recovery after the same procedure performed the traditional way.

The typical endoscopic procedure requires only a few small incisions that allow for the insertion of the endoscope probe and other instruments. For example, breast augmentation only requires two incisions and a forehead lift can be performed with three or four small incisions.

And with fewer and smaller incisions, the risk of sensory loss from nerve damage is decreased, bleeding, bruising and swelling may also be significantly reduced. As a result, patients tend to recover faster and return to work sooner.
