Breaking Down the Different Brow Lift Techniques

Many people pursue a brow lift (also called a forehead lift) for a younger look to the eyes and upper portion of the face. A brow lift can correct the sagging or low position of the eyebrows, lessen brow position asymmetry, and smooth creases on the forehead. At Cascade Facial Surgery & Aesthetics, Dr. Jonathan Grant treats every patient as a unique individual. This includes designing a surgical plan catered to your specific needs and intended to provide you with your desired results.

When deciding on a brow lift surgical plan, Dr. Grant has several options for brow lift techniques. Read on as Dr. Grant breaks down the different brow lift techniques.

Endoscopic Brow Lift

Dr. Grant’s preferred brow lift technique is endoscopic. An endoscope is a small camera device. An endoscopic brow lift is a minimally invasive surgery that is performed through three to five small incisions within the hairline.

During an endoscopic brow lift, an endoscope is inserted through one of the incisions. This enables Dr. Grant to see beneath the skin to perform the surgery. Dr. Grant then uses other small instruments to elevate the muscles and skin to lift and reshape the eyebrows.

Coronal Brow Lift

A coronal brow lift is the most traditional brow lift technique. It is generally used on patients with more significant signs of aging. Utilizing this technique, Dr. Grant makes a single incision that is roughly from ear to ear behind the hairline above the forehead. The incision can also be made within deep forehead creases just above the eyebrows. Dr. Grant then lifts the skin and underlying tissues. Excess skin can also be removed if necessary.

Temporal Brow Lift

The outer portion of the eyebrows is prone to drooping and sagging with age. A temporal brow lift helps to address this issue. This brow lift technique lifts the outer one-third portion of the eyebrow, instead of the full brow area. This technique typically has less dramatic results but can also have shorter healing times.
