Have you started noticing some changes on your forehead? Like it or not, that’s a common part of aging. Loose skin sags, eyebrows sink closer to your eyes, and the lines between your brows and across your forehead become a permanent fixture.
One of the best ways to make cosmetic improvements to your forehead is with brow lift. For many years, traditional (also known as coronal) brow lift was the primary procedure. More recently, endoscopic brow lift, a twist on the classic procedure, has become just as popular. Dr. Scott Green, Sacramento’s most trusted plastic surgeon, performs both types of brow lift. In this blog, he discusses the key differences.
What Distinguishes Coronal and Endoscopic Brow Lift
During coronal brow lift, Dr. Green makes a single incision along your hairline that spans from one ear to the other. After removing excess fat and skin through this incision, he can create a smoother, tighter forehead appearance that rejuvenates your face.
For endoscopic brow lift, Dr. Green makes approximately five tiny incisions along your hairline. Rather than removing excess skin, he prioritizes tightening and repositioning the underlying musculature for a younger appearance.
Which Brow Lift Method Is Better?
Endoscopic brow lift certainly has many advantages. By using an endoscope (a miniature camera), Dr. Green has a much easier time manipulating specific areas that need attention for improved results. Because this approach involves fewer and smaller incisions, in your hairline, you are less likely to notice the incisions.
That said, as a more invasive approach, coronal brow lift can produce somewhat more dramatic results. If you are looking for a more thorough rejuvenation and don’t mind a longer recovery, this may be the preferable approach for you.

Dr. Green is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has had his research published in the top medical journals in his field.
