Forehead Lift

Forehead lift, also called a brow lift, improves the appearance of the forehead and upper brow by lifting the skin and soft tissue above the brow area. It can help improve furrows or low, sagging forehead and brow lines that make you look tired, angry or sad. There are several common techniques for performing a brow lift: Endoscopic, coronal or hairline brow lifts.

In endoscopic brow lifts, the surgeon will make several incisions behind your hairline. Through one of the incisions, a small light and camera (endoscope) is inserted to view your underlying muscles and tissues. Then, using a surgical instrument inserted through one of the other incisions, the surgeon lifts and anchors your forehead tissues with sutures or small screws before closing the incisions.

For coronal brow lifts, the surgeon will make an incision from ear to ear or on the top of your head, across the hairline. Your forehead is lifted to its new position, with the front of the incision overlapping the scalp behind it. The overlap is then removed, and the remaining scalp is sewn back together.

Hairline brow lifts are used if someone has a high receding hairline, or is more likely to lose their hair. The surgeon will make an incision across the top of your forehead and beginning of your hairline, then remove a small amount of skin from the top of your forehead, rather than the scalp, so your hairline will not be pulled back.
