What Brow Lift Techniques Are Available?

Each patient has a unique facial contour and expectation for their brow lift procedure. Incision locations will vary depending on your hairline, the desired outcome, and other contributing factors that will be discussed during your consultation. Dr. Green applies his extensive knowledge and experience in conjunction with his innate artistic skill to create a surgical plan customized for every patient. By personalizing his approach, he can deliver proportionate and natural results.

Coronal Brow Lift

This method creates inconspicuous incisions within the hairline that extend along the top of the head. The tissues are adjusted to correct drooping eyebrows, and wrinkles in the forehead and between the brows are smoothed out.

Anterior Hairline Brow Lift

The anterior hairline brow lift places incisions along the front of the hairline rather than within it. This approach is usually recommended for patients with a larger forehead and significant horizontal lines.

Endoscopic Brow Lift

This approach strategically creates tiny incisions within the hairline. A small camera, referred to as an endoscope, is inserted through one of the incisions to allow Dr. Green to view the muscles and underlying tissue. The brows are elevated, and frown lines are eliminated.

Temporal Brow Lift

Also called lateral brow lift, this is an even less invasive than endoscopic brow lift that focuses exclusively on the outermost part of the eyebrow. Although this approach only touches a small portion of the eyebrow, it can still achieve significant results since this is the area where the brow experiences the most drooping. It is usually best for patients with early signs of aging on the forehead.

Brow Lift Concerns


Patients can expect to experience minor discomfort, swelling, bruising, and a sensation of tightness in their forehead region. Most of these symptoms typically resolve within 10 to 14 days. Post-operative care instructions are provided and should be strictly adhered to.

Endoscopic brow lift patients typically feel and look well enough to return to work after a week.


Because brow lift incisions are made along the hairline, they are rarely visible. If any scarring is visible, it can be concealed with cosmetics.


Pricing for brow lift surgery will depend on various contributing factors, including Dr. Green’s technique, anesthesia fees, surgical facility fees, medical testing, post-operative garments, and medications. After your consultation, you’ll have an estimate of your expenses, and a financial coordinator can assist you further.


Pain associated with a brow lift is typically minimal, and prescription medication can be used to reduce discomfort during your recuperation.

Complementary Procedures

Since facelift focuses on the lower portion of the face, many patients pair that surgery with brow lift to simultaneously rejuvenate the upper portion of the face for a more thorough transformation. Patients also often combine brow lift with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), to refresh the appearance of their eyes.

Our Patients Love Their Results

For the last 15 years I have wanted to have plastic surgery on my face.I had talked to surgeons a few times in the past and did not feel comfortable enough to follow through.

I met with Dr. Green to discuss my options in February. He was thorough in explaining the procedures I would need and what to expect after the surgery. I was totally comfortable with Dr. Green and his wonderful staff that I scheduled my surgery ASAP.

I had a neck lift, brow lift, and excess skin removed from my lower and upper eye lids. I was uncomfortable for a few days after the surgery but never in pain.

My friends all say I look 20 years younger and I feel 20 years younger.

My husband tells me daily how wonderful I look. He now has decided to have a face lift also.

This has been the best experience in my life.
