Types of Brow Lifts

1. Endoscopic Brow Lift – By using cameras and small vertical incisions, it is possible to avoid numbness of the top of the head. ┬áThis technique may cause some elevation of the hairline, which is not advised in patients with high foreheads.

2. Pretrychial (Hairline) Brow Lift – This incision is made in a special way to allow hairs to re-grow through the scar. The incision is made just along the hairline. The advantage of this procedure is that extra skin is removed at the time of the procedure and that the hairline can be lowered, which is desired by many patients with receding or thinning hair. There will be numbness at the top of the head after this procedure that will return to normal over the next 2-8 months.

3. Coronal Brow lift – This incision is again made so that hairs will re-grow through the scar. The incision is made about 4 cm behind the front of the hairline. This provides a more concealed scar. There will be some numbness at the top of the head after this procedure which will return to normal over the next 2-8 months.

Used For

Sagging of the eyebrows which can cause a heavy or “frowny” appearance of the eyes.

Down Time

1-2 weeks

How It Works

Repositioning the sagging eyebrow to a higher position.

Side Effects

Most common side effect is bruising and swelling on the forehead.

What to Expect

There will be some bruising and swelling of the forehead and eyelids. Bruising typically starts at the top of the forehead and travels with gravity, working its way down the face. Results are apparent immediately and may seem over-corrected, however, as the swelling goes down the natural appearing results will become apparent. Depending on the approach, there may be numbness of the top of the head which will improve over the course of 2-8 months. See below for more information on each procedure.
