When surgeons perform any type of facial surgery, they typically make every effort to place incisions in inconspicuous places. A brow lift is a surgical procedure that requires an incision, so invariably there will be a surgical scar after healing. But does a brow lift leave visible scarring. Let’s take a closer look.
Brow lift surgery
Brow lift surgery rejuvenates the appearance of the face by addressing droopy eyelids and brows.
Does a brow lift leave visible scarring?
There are different incision techniques that can be used to perform a brow lift, specifically the coronal incision, hairline incision, and endoscopic incision.
The coronal incision is made at the top of the head from ear to ear, within the hairline, so the resulting scar is hidden from view.
The hairline incision is made within the hairline. The hair usually grows through the scar, so it’s virtually impossible to see it after healing.
The endoscopic brow lift is performed with the assistance of a special medical instrument known as an endoscope, which is a camera with a small tube attached. The incisions for the endoscopic brow lift are very small, and are made on either side of the forehead, so the scars are very discreet.
Once the scars heal normally after a brow lift, they should only leave a very thin, flat line on the skin. Also, since the incisions are made within or near the hairline, the scars are generally well-concealed, and not easy to detect.
