How is the browlift procedure performed?
There are various methods of this procedure now being performed, the final decision will depend on many factors including the amount of excess skin, position of hairline and will be made between the patient and doctor.
a) Coronal brow lift (open) involves an incision that runs just behind and more or less parallel to the hairline, temple to temple. Creases are smoothed and the brow is lifted. This procedure slightly raises the hairline and therefore may not be suitable for male patients who may have receding hairlines or insufficient hair to hide the scar. The main benefit of this method is that excess skin can be removed rather than tightened and many believe it gives the most dramatic and lasting results.
b) Endoscopic brow lift is for patients with less laxity bing a less invasive procedure. Between 2-4 small incisions are made at different points within the hairline, a tiny camera is inserted underneath the skin to guide the surgeon as the forehead is lifted without raising the hairline. In this method, skin is removed at the hairline, rather than behind it. Incisions heal almost invisibly compared to the longer scar of the Coronal brow lift.
