A brow lift plastic surgery lifts and corrects sagging of the brows. There are many surgical techniques that Dr. Santos can perform to achieve long lasting results. Two of the most common techniques include the open brow lift and endoscopic brow lift. Dr. Santos can determine the right surgical technique for your Seattle brow lift during a consultation.
An open brow lift, also called a coronal brow lift, is the traditional technique. For the most part, this procedure has been replaced by less invasive techniques. However, for some patients with large amounts of sagging or loose skin, the open brow lift surgery may provide the best results. This type of brow lift includes a larger procedure that offers Dr. Santos full access to the skin and muscles of the brow.
The endoscopic brow lift is the most modern surgical technique for a standard brow lift. Using minimally invasive, small incisions, Dr. Santos uses an endoscope to guide him. This minimizes trauma and can lead to less recovery time. Most brow lift patients are good candidates for an endoscopic brow lift.
One of the main differences between an endoscopic brow lift and an open brow lift is that the endoscopic method typically leads to less scarring. Additionally, those with receding hairlines are not usually good candidates for a coronal brow lift for this reason.
