Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2018 Oct 15;6(10):e1943. Epub 2018 Oct 15.

Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute, Dallas, Tex.

Background: Brow lift has been a part of plastic surgeons' armamentarium for over a century. Although there are multiple different techniques available, there has been a dearth of literature comparing which technique is better and has lesser complications. In this study, we performed a systemic literature review of all brow lift techniques to determine and compare complication rates of each technique. Read More

Minimal Incisions Vertical Endoscopic Lifting (MIVEL) for the Management of Lateral Canthal and Lower Eyelid Malposition.

Aesthet Surg J 2018 Sep 21. Epub 2018 Sep 21.

Private practice in Genova, Italy.

The purpose of this article is to describe the necessary steps to correct both primary and postblepharoplasty lateral canthal and lower eyelid malpositions at the time of endoscopic face lifting. Endoscopic surgery is traditionally considered only for brow and forehead lifting. However, in our practice we have successfully expanded the indications of the minimal incision vertical endoscopic lifting technique from being primarily indicated for forehead/brow elevation to also treating both primary and secondary lower eyelid and lateral canthal malpositions.

Facial Plast Surg 2018 Feb 6;34(1):36-42. Epub 2018 Feb 6.

Department of Facial Plastic Surgery, Cirugia Plastica Facial, Mexico, Ciudad de Mexico, Mexico.

One of the first signs of aging belongs to the upper third of the face. With the aging process, mestizo facial features become more prominent. The thicker skin-soft tissue envelope (S-STE) has a tendency to sag more, hooding of the eyelids tends to be more pronounced, and there is a tendency for eyebrows to droop, specifically the tail of the brows, because of the loss of support.

Endoscopic surgical techniques have greatly increased in popularity with the advent of modern endoscopes. Endoscopic brow lifting has largely replaced older, more invasive procedures. With this technique a skilled surgeon can identify and treat a ptotic eyebrow by addressing the relevant anatomy, including the frontalis, corrugator, procerus and orbicularis oculi muscles.

Comparison of the transpalpebral and endoscopic approaches in resection of the corrugator supercilii muscle.

Aesthet Surg J 2012 Feb;32(2):151-6

University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI, USA.

Background: Corrugator resection is an integral part of periorbital rejuvenation and can be accomplished through the open coronal, endoscopic, or transpalpebral technique. While most authors concur about the importance of corrugator resection during brow lift surgery, considerable debate remains regarding the efficacy and technical ease of muscle resection with these approaches.

Objectives: The authors conducted a cadaver study to compare the completeness of resection of the corrugator muscle with the transpalpebral and endoscopic techniques. Read More

A novel technique for repositioning lower eyelid fat via the transoral approach in association with midface lift.

Authors:
M Mark Mofid

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2011 Aug 27;35(4):563-8. Epub 2011 Feb 27.

Division of Plastic Surgery, University of California San Diego, 4150 Regents Park Row Suite #300, La Jolla, San Diego, CA 92037, USA.

Background: Orbital fat repositioning in association with subperiosteal midface elevation has been variably described via both the transconjunctival and skin muscle flap approaches. Poor visualization, middle and posterior lamellar cicatricial fibrosis, technical difficulty, and incomplete release are disadvantages commonly ascribed to the transconjunctival approach. Lower eyelid malposition and retraction also are commonly seen in association with skin muscle flap approaches. Read More

Eliminating frown lines with an endoscopic forehead lift procedure (corrugator muscle disinsertion).

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2011 Aug 7;35(4):516-21. Epub 2011 Feb 7.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Iran University of Medical Sciences, St. Fatima Hospital, No. 8, Esmaeeli St., Keyhan Ave., Zaferanieh, Tehran, Iran.

Background: In certain cases of endoscopic forehead lift without muscle resection, patients were incidentally noted to develop weakness or loss of their ability to frown during the postoperative period despite intact musculature. This finding suggested the possibility of decreasing frown strength using the disinsertion of the relevant muscles. This finding persuaded the authors to try to eliminate or decrease the sensory problems resulting from open or endoscopic frowning muscle resection by disinserting these muscles. Read More

Forehead lifting: state of the art.

Facial Plast Surg 2011 Feb 18;27(1):50-7. Epub 2011 Jan 18.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, Oregon 29239, USA.

Forehead lifting serves to restore a more youthful appearance as well as a more functional and aesthetically pleasing brow position. The purpose of this review is to describe the pertinent anatomy and forehead aesthetics, then to discuss the patient evaluation, surgical approaches, complications, and nonsurgical adjuncts. Anatomic features reviewed include the layers of the forehead and scalp, blood supply, innervation, musculature, and the temporal branch of the facial nerve anatomy. Read More

Transblepharoplasty brow suspension with a biodegradable fixation device.

Aesthet Surg J 2010 Nov-Dec;30(6):802-9

Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, Tennessee, USA.

Background: Brow droop, eyelid tissue excess, and hyperfunction of the muscles of forehead facial expression may contribute to the aging diathesis of the upper one-third of the face. Many approaches to the brow have been described, including coronal or pretricheal incisions, direct incision of the suprabrow or forehead, and endoscopic techniques. A less frequent technique, the transblepharoplasty browlift (TBBL), has a role in rejuvenating brow position, especially in patients in whom both the eyelids and brows need to be addressed.

Forehead and scalp sensation after brow-lift: a comparison between open and endoscopic techniques.

Arch Facial Plast Surg 2011 Mar-Apr;13(2):109-16. Epub 2010 Nov 15.

Facial Plastic Surgery Clinic, Birmingham, Alabama, USA.

Objective: To compare postoperative forehead and scalp sensation for the "open" brow-lift (OBL) (coronal and trichophytic) with that of the endoscopic brow-lift (EBL).

Methods: A controlled outcome evaluation study was designed to objectively (mechanoceptive and thermoceptive) and subjectively (visual analog scale) test forehead and scalp sensation in a group of patients having undergone or scheduled to undergo either OBL or EBL in a single, private facial plastic surgery clinic. Prospectively enrolled participants were tested at defined intervals (A, preoperation; B,1-2 weeks after; C, 4-6 weeks after; D, 12-14 weeks after; and E, 24-26 weeks after). Read More

Management of the midface during facial rejuvenation.

Semin Plast Surg 2009 Nov;23(4):274-82

Department of Plastic Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas.

The endoscopic midface lift procedure has evolved from experience with postreduction soft tissue repair after facial fracture fixation. The procedure elevates and repositions midface soft tissue, which descends with facial aging; as well, it can correct periorbital congenital abnormalities, such as exorbitism and lateral canthal displacement. The procedure has been refined by the senior author to employ a temporal endoscopic approach alleviating the need for a lower eyelid incision. Read More

Eyebrow peak position redefined.

Aesthet Surg J 2010 May-Jun;30(3):297-300

University of California, Irvine, CA, USA.

Background: The aesthetically appealing eyebrow shape has been defined by its arch, located near the junction between the medial two-thirds and lateral one-third. The position of this arch has been historically described by arbitrary anatomical landmarks that have no logical structural relationship. Moreover, selection of endoscopic brow lift incision sites that define vector of pull and fixation points have been variably described. Read More
