When considering a Brow Lift in Melbourne, Florida consult your surgeon to see what method is right for you.
The decision you and your surgeon make about which Forehead Lift or Brow Lift is best for you depends on numerous variables. The Forehead Lift or Brow Lift that will ultimately be best for you is determined by your concerns with your hairline position, placement of incisions, and desired outcome.
There are many methods for performing a Brow Lift or Forehead Lift including an Endoscopic Brow Lift (through tiny incisions with the assistance of telescopes), Bicoronal Forehead Lift (extensive incision from ear to ear across the top of the head) and a Tricophytic or Hairline Brow Lift. Hidden along the hairline, each of these techniques achieves a similar result through the brow and the forehead in terms of smoothing of lines and gentle elevation of the brows.
The key difference is in how they affect your hairline. The Bicoronal (ear to ear) Brow Lift elevates or pulls your hairline back, raising the frontal hairline by up to one inch. The Endoscopic Lift has minimal effect of the position of the hairline. The Tricophytic or Hairline Brow Lift can be used to adjust the hairline, usually lowering it to address a receding hairline or widow's peaks in the temporal hairline.
