University of Utah School of Medicine, 5445 South Highland Drive, Salt Lake City, UT 84117, USA.

The endoscopic approach for forehead rejuvenation and brow lift has many advantages. It provided excellent exposure for release of periorbital soft tissues combined with endoscopic magnification, shorter scars, and reduced risk of alopecia and scalp sensory changes compared with the traditional open coronal brow lift. The technique has improved over the last 15 years with better fixation devices, a better understanding of the longevity, and decreased complications of the procedure. Read More

Endoscopic Brow Lift Fixation With Mitek Suture Anchors: A 9-Year Experience of a New "Ideal" Technique.

Plast Surg (Oakv) 2019 May 4;27(2):100-106. Epub 2018 Nov 4.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Loma Linda University, Loma Linda, CA, USA.

Purpose: In recent years, the endoscopic technique has emerged as a minimally invasive approach to forehead rejuvenation, although the specific need for and mode of brow fixation for endoscopic brow lifts remain under considerable debate. An ideal fixation device should provide non-palpable long-lasting fixation and allow retention of the device post-operatively without the need for removal. It should also allow precise intraoperative adjustment for symmetry and correction of brow ptosis. Read More

Transpalpebral Eyebrow Lift.

Facial Plast Surg 2016 Dec 29;32(6):631-635. Epub 2016 Dec 29.

Department of Otolaryngology and Facial Plastic Surgery, Federal University of Uberlandia, Uberlandia, Minas Gerais, Brazil.

Forehead rejuvenation goals are to raise the eyebrow, attenuate forehead wrinkles, and decrease glabellar frown lines. Endoscopic forehead lift represents a significant progress, even replacing the classic coronal and pretriquial techniques. The transpalpebral eyebrow lift allows safe direct visualization of anatomic structures comparable to the allowed by the endoscopic-assisted technique but dispenses the endoscopic instrumentation, is less expensive, and takes less time to learn.
