Numerous options in brow lifting exist that can be broadly categorized as open and minimally invasive or endoscopic. Proper patient evaluation, procedural goals, and surgeon preference all play into procedure choice. There are common desirable traits of the esthetic brow. One must take into account gender differences when considering alteration of the brow. Multiple options exist for brow fixation. One must take into account 3 factors during brow lift: release of the brow, brow fixation after advancement, and depressor muscle release. A brow lift will affect the amount of excess upper lid skin and pretarsal lid show.
