There’s no question that hair loss can occur following brow lift procedures. This hair loss is highly dependent upon the type of procedure performed. It’s much more likely to occur when open approaches are utilized and can occur for a variety of reasons. These may include tension on the wound closure, thinning of skin flaps and the use of cautery.
In most cases, this hair loss is transient, but in some cases it may be permanent. When this occurs a variety of treatment options exist. These include scar revision, hair transplantation and Rogaine.
It’s important to individualize the treatment of brow descent based on the patients’ needs and aesthetic goals. Although the results of open brow lifts probably last longer than the results of endoscopic brow lift, the longevity of endoscopic browlift is never the less still quite good. In most cases, endoscopic browlift still probably represents the best option.
Consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon with browlift experience would be appropriate. This surgeon should be able to help you formulate an appropriate treatment plan.
