When considering a forehead lift, one must first choose between a coronal lift, a subcutaneous lift, and an endoscopic lift. It takes an experienced facial surgeon like Dr. Evan Ransom to help you decide which type of forehead lift can optimize your desired outcome. However, it’s best to come prepared before a consultation by reading exactly what your forehead lift options are and the advantages of each.
Endoscopic forehead lifts are less invasive while offering the greatest degree of accuracy. However, they are limited in the degree of lift they provide compared to other lift options.
The coronal lift has been around the longest. It tends to cause a slightly raised hairline and requires more recovery time but can also yield more dramatic results compared to other lifts
Subcutaneous forehead lifts avoid the hairline issue entirely, and the appearance of a large forehead is not exacerbated. Because of this, the procedure is popular with patients who have receding hairlines.
Another distinction between the three lift options are the incisions required. While coronal and subcutaneous brow lifts begin with a larger incision stretching from ear to ear, the endoscopic lifts incorporate smaller incisions, which leads to faster recovery times.
