Dr. Shaw explains a brow lift procedure.
A brow lift is, as it sounds, a surgery that lifts the brow. There’s various ways to perform a brow lift, either through a coronal incision, which is back in the hair, a frontal incision, which is at the hairline, or endoscopically done through small incisions using endoscopic equipment. The coronal brow lift involves an incision in the scalp or at the hairline whereas the endoscopic brow lift involves smaller incisions.
One of the issues with the endoscopic brow lift tends to be the longevity of the result. So many of us have moved back to the open techniques, which have much longer lasting results and higher patient satisfaction.
