In brief: Brow lift

There are several types of brow lifts.
The most common are a coronal brow lift and endoscopic brow lift. The coronal is utilized for more severe brow droop, while the endoscopic is more commonly performed in mild/moderate brow ptosis. Coronal leaves a scar in hair extending from ear to ear, the endoscopic leaves 3-5 small 2 cm incisions in scalp.

In brief: AKA Forehead Lift

A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a procedure in which the facial area between your upper eyes and scalp is firmed, tightened, and made more youthful in appearance.
Your brow lift surgery can be used to address sagging eyebrows as well as deep lines, creases, and wrinkles throughout the forehead.

In brief: Surgical procedure

This is a procedure whereuopn the skin is "lifted" to advance the forehead skin up towards the scalp.
Anytime a surgical procedure is performed there are risks (bleeding , infection and scarring) however, if done correctly and meticulously , a brow-lift can provide a great cosmetic result.
