A brow lift treats excess and drooping skin at the forehead and eyebrow. Repositioning the skin and underlying tissues helps raise the eyebrows and reduces forehead wrinkles. This leaves the skin looking more refreshed and restores the natural contours of the upper face.
There are four types of brow lifts: coronal, trichophytic, endoscopic, and temporal.
A coronal brow lift is performed using a long incision within the scalp, extending from ear to ear.
A trichophytic brow lift is performed using an incision near the hairline (at the junction between the forehead and scalp). In addition to raising the brow, this technique can also lower the hairline.
An endoscopic brow lift uses much smaller incisions. A small camera is used for visualization during the dissection.
A temporal brow lift focuses mainly on the outer one-third portion of the brows. It helps reverse heaviness in the upper eyelid by lifting the skin which corrects folds and wrinkles at the forehead and corners of the eyes.
