Forehead lift

Dominik L Feinendegen, Mihai A Constantinescu, Daniel A Knutti, J Camilo Roldán
BACKGROUND: A huge number of procedures for forehead and brow rejuvenation have been described. Nevertheless, the surgical approach of brow aesthetics in terms of correction of brow fullness and symmetry has not been systematically evaluated in the literature. We recently proposed a 20-degree beveled brow incision technique for direct brow lifting. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the 20-degree beveled brow incision technique for brow reduction, reshaping and correction of brow symmetry...

In facial plastic surgery, attaining hemostasis may require adjuncts to traditional surgical techniques. Fibrin tissue adhesives have broad applications in surgery and are particularly useful when addressing the soft tissue encountered in facial plastic surgery. Beyond hemostasis, tissue adhesion and enhanced wound healing are reported benefits associated with a decrease in operating time, necessity for drains and pressure dressings, and incidence of wound healing complications. These products are clinically accessible to most physicians who perform facial plastic surgery, including skin grafts, flaps, rhytidectomy, and endoscopic forehead lift...

BACKGROUND: Direct brow lift surgery remains popular among Asian women despite its disadvantages. The traditional direct brow lift by a supra-brow incision is not suitable for Asian women because of their unique facial features, such as higher eyebrows, wider upper eyelids, and more orbital fat. Therefore, we designed a novel brow lift technique via a supra-brow combined with an infra-brow approach for Asian women. METHODS: An area of skin above and below the eyebrow was measured, demarcated, and surgically removed...

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...

The contemporary male look includes sharp contours of the face with strong nose, significant malar-midface structure, and a powerful chin with well-defined jawline. Neurotoxins in the upper facial lines should preserve a lower position of the brows and flatter arch in men. Excessive lifting of the eyebrows and full correction of forehead and periorbital lines are not desirable. The use of dermal fillers is fully accepted into the nasolabial. Male patients with sagginess and hollowness related or not related to acquired lipodystrophies are candidates for cheek correction with volumizers...

Extraocular sebaceous carcinoma that occurs on sebaceous gland is a rare malignant cancer with unknown causes and nonspecific clinical characters, but with distinct pathology and immunohistochemical finding. In Kangnam Sacred Heart Hospital, there was a case that the result of preoperative punch biopsy was squamous cell carcinoma and malignant proliferating trichilemmal tumor, but that of postoperative permanent biopsy was sebaceous carcinoma. The type of tumor, differentiation, location, and aesthetic results are considered to get both recurrence-safe and aesthetically pleasing result...

Long-standing facial paralyses are those in which fibroadipose metaplasia of mimetic musculature has grown because of the time that has lapsed since the onset of the palsy: generally more than 18-24 months. Unlike the treatment of recent paralyses, to provide a neural input to reactivate the mimetic musculature is not enough. New healthy muscles must be transferred to the face. Operations may be subdivided into free-flap transplantations or masticatory muscle transpositions. The principles of treatment are correction of the asymmetry of the face by static means, and restoration of movements...

A prominent characteristic of the aging face is the descent of skin and subcutaneous tissues. In order to reduce this and create a more youthful appearance, several lifting procedures can be employed. In the forehead and eyebrow region the transblepharoplastic brow lift, the direct brow lift, the temporal brow lift, the coronal brow lift and the endoscopic brow lift can be distinguished. For the mid-face, the facelift is known to be an effective treatment for aging characteristics. Classic facelifts can be divided into the one layer-, two layer- and the deep plane facelift...

BACKGROUND: Although there are various international consensus recommendations on the use of botulinum neurotoxin type A (BoNT/A) in facial aesthetics, there are no global or Russian guidelines on the optimal dose of incobotulinumtoxinA, free from complexing proteins, within specific aesthetic indications. This article reports the outcomes of two expert consensus meetings, conducted to review and analyze efficacy and tolerability data for incobotulinumtoxinA in various facial aesthetic indications and to give expert consensus recommendations to ensure best clinical practice among Russian clinicians...

PURPOSE: To present a case of Herpes Zoster Ophtalmicus (HZO), which was reactivated postoperatively after a sinus lift operation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A 39-year-old male was referred to our clinic for implant-supported dental rehabilitation. He had maxillary missing teeth in positions 13, 14, 15 and 16 and a pneumatised right maxillary sinus with a bone height of 2 mm. Lateral sinus lifting and bone block grafting was performed before implant insertion. Twelve days after the sinus lift, the patient complained of pain and itching at the infraorbital area extending to the forehead...

The minimal access cranial suspension lift, a short-scar facelift, has been described to correct sagging and laxity of the lower and middle third of the face. It does not, however, fully address the neck or the lateral periorbital area frequently needing rejuvenation in most patients. Another shortcoming of the minimal access cranial suspension lift technique is visible scarring anterior to the temporal hairline that usually occurs despite the suggested surgical maneuvers consisting in zigzag beveled incisions...

Patients with thick skin mainly exhibit the aging processes of sagging, whereas patients with thin skin develop wrinkles or volume loss. Asian skin is usually thicker than that of Westerners; and thus, the sagging of skin due to aging, rather than wrinkling, is the chief problem to be addressed in Asians. Asian skin is also relatively large in area and thick, implying that the weight of tissue to be lifted is considerably heavier. These factors account for the difficulties in performing a facelift in Asians...

BACKGROUND: It is theorized that brow elevation after treatment with botulinum toxin Type A (BoNT-A) results from inactivation of the brow depressors. Expert consensus is that increased injection depth delivers more BoNT-A to these depressors and causes increased elevation. This technique is applied to the correction of brow height asymmetry. OBJECTIVE: To compare changes in brow height after deep versus shallow BoNT-A in patients with brow asymmetry. METHODS: A prospective split-face analysis was performed on 23 women with eyebrow-height asymmetry...

BACKGROUND: The temporal lift by galeapexy is a short-scar lifting of the lateral third of the eyebrow and temporal region described in 2003 by Alain Fogli. The senior authors (A.M.V., P.L.T.) have been early adopters of this technique, albeit with some modifications. METHODS: The technique was used in 923 cases, of which 20 percent were performed as an isolated procedure and 80 percent were performed in combination with a minimal access cranial suspension lift...

Trichophytic brow lifting is a popular method of repositioning the brows/upper lid complex. The procedure has traditionally been described in a subcutaneous plane of dissection. An equally effective, yet safer modification of the trichophytic brow lift, performed in the deeper, subgaleal plane, is described herein. This modification significantly improves the vascularity of the forehead flap.
