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. This 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.
