What Are The Different Types of Brow Lift?
It is normal to experience sagginess around the eyebrow area when aging. Over time, the forehead can droop, making you look tired, angry, or even sad. Brow lift surgery helps correct the sagging of the forehead, resulting in a younger look to the upper portion of the face and eyes. But did you know there is more than one type of brow lift?
Different techniques can provide different results. It all depends on your concerns and the results you’re looking for. Let’s take a look at the various types of brow lift procedures.
Coronal lifts are ideal for candidates with furrowed lines above the nose, heavy brows, or undesirable furrows in the forehead area. This surgical procedure allows you to restore a youthful look to all those areas.
During the surgery, Dr. Berman will make an incision from ear to ear along your hairline and remove excess skin. He will then expose and realign the muscles. This reduces the heaviness or sagging of the brow and rejuvenates your entire facial appearance.
An endoscopic brow lift is one of the most used procedures as it only requires small incisions. During this procedure, Dr. Berman uses an endoscope with a camera attached to let him view and then dissect the tissue. Since the cuts are minimal, patients who receive this type of brow lift experience shorter recovery periods and much less discomfort.
Also known as lateral brow lift, a temporal brow lift involves smoothing out the forehead area while lifting your eyebrows. This procedure helps address the outer portion of the eyebrow, which often starts drooping first as we age, creating sagging and heaviness to the upper eyelid.
This type of brow lift can address all those issues and comes with shorter healing times and less risk than other procedures.
The hairline or trichophytic brow lift is an improved version of the coronal brow lift. Dr. Berman hides the incision in the hairline, and excess skin is removed from the forehead. A hairline brow lift is ideal if you want to smooth out deep forehead lines and creases.
As with other cosmetic surgery procedures, each candidate’s best brow lift procedure will depend on their desired outcome. As Dr. Berman is a double-board-certified plastic surgeon with 30 years of experience, he can help you determine the right brow lift for you.
