Brow lift techniques
Several techniques for brow lift surgery are used, personalizing the results for each patient’s specific needs.
Coronal brow lift
Traditionally used by surgeons, the coronal brow lift begins with an incision in the scalp that runs from ear to ear behind the hairline.
Endoscopic brow lift
This technique utilizes a series of small incisions that are always hidden within the scalp. Scarring is well concealed behind the hairline, although both this method and coronal may cause a slight elevation in the hairline.
Trichophytic brow lift
For patients with an elevated hairline, Dr. Holcomb has developed an innovative technique that utilizes a small incision immediately behind the hairline. During the procedure, the height of the forehead can remain the same. Patients have the option to make the forehead smaller during the procedure.
Mid-forehead brow lift
The incision for a mid-forehead brow lift is hidden in the horizontal crease of the forehead. This method is often recommended for men with a receding hairline.
Other types of brow lift methods can be utilized, depending on the specific needs of an individual patient. These include the direct brow lift (with an incision the upper eyebrow) and the transbleph brow lift, employing an incision through the upper eyelid.
