Does the hairline change with an Endoscopic Brow Lift?

Also, Is it common to lose a bit of hair with procedures such as a FL or brow lift?

Thank you for your question. Endoscopic brow lifting is done by operating through tiny incisions that are hidden within the hairline. The underlying fat, tendons and muscles are precisely lifted to create a more youthful facial appearance.

I suggest that you move forward and consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.

Endoscopic brow lift does elevate the hairline by lifting and resuspending the scalp at a higher level. However, considering that there is no excision of the scalp skin, the alteration of the hairline is more modest compared to those techniques. Thus, the shape and length of the forehead and also pattern of hair coverage on the scalp play important roles in decision making of which technique is aesthetically suitable for each individual.

Endoscopic brow lift will pull your hairline back, effectively making the forehead a bit higher. The same is true of coronal forehead lifting. Pretrichial brow lifting and direct brow lift leave the hairline in place. Anywhere an incision is made you have the potential for hair loss.
