Abstract

Purpose of review: In this text, we describe and compare the most current brow-lifting techniques, including endoscopic, coronal, and pretrichial approaches, as well as subperiosteal and subgaleal dissection planes, and we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each. Recent findings: Over the past decade, we have witnessed tremendous advances in the anatomic understanding of brow ptosis and in the procedures used to correct the resulting functional and aesthetic deformities.
