In-Office Brow and Forehead Lifting by a Quick Multi-incision Trichophytic Approach

  • 163 Accesses

Abstract

Rejuvenation of the brow and forehead is a critical cosmetic concern for many patients. An ideal approach would improve both forehead rhytids and brow ptosis, yet be easily performed and well tolerated in the office setting. Equally important is a long-lasting result that has low risk, instrument cost, and downtime. I have found, for many patients, the pre-hairline (trichophytic) with or without subcutaneous dissection forehead lift to be a great in-office procedure with high patient satisfaction. Suitable patients will tolerate the 2–3 incision placement sites and do not wish to have the hairline raised.
