The first 3 brow lifts (Coronal Brow Lift, Lateral Brow Lift, and Endoscopic Brow Lift) all involve raising and extending the hairline so they’re ideal for patients with low hairlines. Whereas with a Pretrichail Brow Lift and Eyebrow Brow Lift do not raise the hairline and therefor are ideal for patients with a pre-existing high hairline.
However, for most patients, Dr. Freund recommends a lateral browlift, a procedure he developed and which won the “Best Scientific Exhibit Award” from the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons in 2003. It features small incisions, doesn’t raise the hairline, and creates a naturally arched eyebrow.
The procedure is less invasive and simpler than a full brow lift. Tiny incisions are made in the hairline at the temples. Excess skin is removed and the outer corners of the forehead are raised. Unlike a full brow lift, a lateral brow lift will not raise the middle of the brow, but it will dramatically help to alleviate crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes.
