Could you please explain what a coronal brow lift is?
A coronal browlift is a browlift that uses an incision that extends from the hairline just above your ear on one side, directly over the top of the scalp, to the hairline directly over the opposite ear. The coronal browlift used to be a very popular approach to elevation of the brow however, there were several side effects from the incision that most surgeons felt were not worth the approach to browlifting given the available alternatives. Prolonged numbness of the scalp and the inability to use the approach in male patients are two of the issues that have decreased the use of the coronal browlift approach.
