In rhinoplasty patients radix position profoundly impacts the appearance of the nasal profile by influencing dorsal length, contour, angulation, and height. The authors wanted to introduce a new perspective to radix, and decided to focus on subcutaneous tissues, especially procerus muscle. Actually resection of procerus and corrugator supercilii is a part of browlift and endoscopic facelift techniques, with which the authors are already familiar.In this short report and video, the authors wanted to present a new technique to lower radix area...

Objective Forehead and brows form a critical aesthetic and functional subunit of the face. Chronical pPeripheral paralysis of the facial nerve or its frontal branch may cause brow ptosis and eyelid deformities with a limited field of vision and loss of facial symmetry. Techniques, especially endoscopic methods have evolved significantly. Endotine Forehead Device, an adsorbable device, is a promising tool for brow suspension. Material and Methods 9 patients underwent brow and forehead lift surgery via Endotine Forehead Device...

Background: The height of the eyebrow is less crucial aesthetically than is the relationship between the lateral and medial portions of the brow. Although various surgical procedures are effective in raising the brow, the authors maintain that transcutaneous brow shaping (TBS) is the only technique that enables precise shaping of the brow and correction of minor asymmetries. Objectives: The authors described their experiences with direct TBS alone or in conjunction with blepharoplasty and facelift...

One of the first signs of aging belongs to the upper third of the face. At the same time, the height and shape of the eyebrows are key points of the periorbital aesthetics. A "tired" or "sad" look implies that the complex eyebrow-upper eyelid are showing one or more of these signs. Different surgical techniques as well as nonsurgical have been described to treat this area, every one of them aiming at making the patient look rested and natural. The objective of this study is to describe a technique for endoscopic browlifting, consisting of minimal incisions, a biplanar dissection, and a different fixation technique designed for helping reshape the brow...

BACKGROUND: Competition among our sister cosmetic specialties continues to increase. Once a field dominated by plastic surgeons, there is a clear trend toward increased competition from core and non-core disciplines. While these marketplace trends are obvious, how such competition has affected academia or peer reviewed publications is less clear. OBJECTIVES: We analyzed the most cited peer reviewed facial aesthetic literature over the past five decades to see if marketplace trends are echoed in a similar manner across the academic disciplines of plastic surgery, otolaryngology, dermatology, and ophthalmology...

UNLABELLED: The upper third of the face, composed of the forehead and the brow, is a critical aesthetic subunit. Brow ptosis is a common presenting complaint for patients seeking elective improvement of their facial appearance. Browlift surgery has a long history of technique evolution, with various reported methods and refinements. Since the introduction of the endoscopic brow lifting in the 1990s, it has become widely accepted as an approach to forehead rejuvenation. Endoscopy provides minimal incisions in well hidden areas, avoiding long, visible scars...

BACKGROUND: The desire for efficient and safe office-based facial plastic surgery procedures has continued to rise. Oral sedation is a safe and effective method to provide anesthesia for facial aesthetic surgery. OBJECTIVES: This study reviewed private practice anesthesia-related outcomes using oral sedation combined with local anesthesia for office-based facial aesthetic surgery procedures. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed on all patients who underwent office-based facial plastic surgery procedures from July 2008 to July 2014...

John H. Woodbury was an incredibly entrepreneurial, self-trained dermatologist who, between 1870 and 1909, built an empire of cosmetic surgery institutes in 6 states, with 25 physician/surgeon employees and an advertising budget of $150,000/year (1892 data). Under his management, his surgeons, and perhaps Woodbury himself, performed multiple facial cosmetic surgeries, including early versions of browlifts, frown excisions, lower facelifts, mid-face lifts, rhinoplasties, double-chin reductions, and dimple creation...

BACKGROUND: The brow and forehead are essential elements of the facial aesthetic architecture. Although frequently overlooked in youth, signs of facial aging are often most noticeable in the upper third of the face. Ptosis and loss of contour in the brows, along with temporal volume loss, sagging of periorbital tissue, and rhytides in the forehead, are common presenting complaints for aesthetic surgery. Although use of nonsurgical procedures (e.g., neuromodulators) has become very common practice, knowledge of surgical anatomy and interventions for brow and forehead rejuvenation are critical for a plastic surgeon...

The cosmetic use of botulinum toxin (BoNT) is the most common cosmetic procedure performed in the world today. Common adverse events seen in the aesthetic use of the BoNT include swelling, localized bruising, headaches, injection site discomfort, excessive muscle weakness, and unintended paresis of adjacent muscles. BoNT has a wide array of cosmetic uses, including treatment of glabellar lines, chemical browlift, forehead wrinkles, periorbital, and perioral lines. The future formulations and applications of BoNT type A will be plentiful, and are exciting to consider...

BACKGROUND: Delayed recovery after facial palsy results in aberrant nerve regeneration with symptomatic movement disorders, summarized as the postparalytic facial nerve syndrome. The authors present an alternative surgical approach for improvement of periocular movement disorders in patients with postparalytic facial nerve syndrome. The authors proposed that endoscopic brow lift leads to an improvement of periocular movement disorders by reducing pathologically raised levels of afferent input...

BACKGROUND: Plastic surgeons have long recognized the importance of performing chin augmentation concurrent with a rhinoplasty to achieve facial balance. However, few surgeons consider the benefits of combining a rhinoplasty with brow modification to achieve a better aesthetic result. By increasing the size of the middle third of the face, the nose will automatically appear smaller. OBJECTIVE: The authors describe anatomical dissections that provided perspective on the facial anatomy of the areas being studied and report the results of concurrent browlift and rhinoplasty procedures in a retrospective series of patients...

BACKGROUND: Surgical browlifts counteract the effects of aging, correct ptosis, and optimize forehead aesthetics. While surgeons have control over brow shape, the metrics defining ideal brow shape are subjective. OBJECTIVES: This study aims to empirically determine whether three expert brow design strategies are aesthetically equivalent by using expert focus group analysis and relating these findings to brow surgery. METHODS: Comprehensive literature search identified three dominant brow design methods (Westmore, Lamas and Anastasia) that are heavily cited, referenced or internationally recognized in either medical literature or by the lay media...

Comprehensive rejuvenation of the periorbital region commonly involves management of the brow, as well as the upper and lower eyelids. Browlifting, upper and lower blepharoplasty, fat transfer, and neuromodulators are frequently utilized with excellent results. However, surgery in this region can be fraught with potential complications ranging from a poor cosmetic outcome to orbital hematoma and vision loss. Although avoidance of complications is preferred, it is incumbent on the surgeon to have a detailed understanding of the pathophysiology, prevention, and management of these complications...

Facial rejuvenation has largely focused on surgical procedures of the lower and upper one thirds of the face. Over the past 15 years, research focus on the midface has given aesthetic facial surgeons more tools to improve the signs of aging. The term midface has been used with various definitions, but includes the lower eyelid subunit beginning at the inferior border of the tarsal plate and cheek, down to the nasolabial fold. Many surgical approaches to the midface have been described including skin tightening with direct excision, skin-muscle flaps, fat repositioning, and, our preferred method of endoscopic browlift approach, subperiosteal lifting...

BACKGROUND: Upper blepharoplasty is a common aesthetic surgical procedure. Different surgical techniques and markings have been described, some of which may incorporate browpexy or browlifting. Considering the upper periorbital area as an aesthetic unit, various techniques of browpexy and browlifting have been taken into consideration. OBJECTIVES: The authors describe their technique for upper blepharoplasty, which includes an extended cutaneous excision that permits good correction of lateral hooding, reducing the need for browpexy or browlifting...

BACKGROUND: Techniques for endoscopic browlift include bony fixation over the lateral frontal region and soft tissue fixation over the temporal region. Although bony fixation over the lateral frontal region is advocated universally, limited information exists about bicortical thickness in this area. OBJECTIVES: The authors provide bicortical thickness measurements between the frontal midline and the most inferior temporal region to assist surgeons in identifying appropriate fixation planes...
