Forehead and eyebrow lift

This operation makes brow elevated by partially cutting brow depressor.
Aging starts from eye area first. Forehead is depressed and wrinkled, brow are sagged as well.
Sagged forehead and brows are reason for aged eye.
But often this problem is ignored then blepharoplasty is performed instead of solving real problem
This create very strong and rough impression, also wrinkles around eye gets more severe.
Necessity of forehead and brow lift
Middle age eyelid hooding is often misunderstood as sagged eyelid. Actually, it is caused by sagged forehead and brows. Forehead and eyebrow lift need to be performed to fix this matter, not blepharoplasty. If blepharopasty is done without forehead and eyebrow lifting, more wrinkle would appear on lateral eye and bridge of nose. It will end up with having very strong and unnatural impression. I strongly advise not to do upper blepharoplasty after middle age. In case of young people, forehead and brow lift need to be done with blepahroplasty.

Double eyelid surgery is not recommended in young people if brows are sagged. Therefore, regardless with age, forehead and brow lift need to be considered if brows are sagged

Principle of forehead and eyebrow lift
It is essential to know the structure and the function of the eyebrow muscle in order to understand this surgery. A eyebrow muscle is composed of two muscles, one is to pull eyebrows downside and the other is pull eyebrows upside. There is only one frontalis which makes eyebrow move up.
  • Frontalis

The size of the muscle that pull downwards is smaller but it makes the delicate expression with its 4 muscles, expecially, the muscle in the middle of the forehead makes wrinkles.
  • depressing brow muscle

  • Among those steps, the core part of the surgery is to cut the muscle that pull down the eyebrow. When it is cut, the eyebrow is lifted physiologically, not compulsively.(photo: principles to lift the eyebrow)

내시경 장비

Anesthetic
This operation allows enlarged view like microscopic surgery. Incision made in small muscle fiber but nerve and vein need to be protected, it requires skill. Patient should not move during surgery, also view is not clear if there is bleeding. General anesthetic is required for precision. It used to be done with sedation with local anesthetic. But result of surgery isn’t good enough, it also accompanies with pain and movement
Procedure of surgery
There are 5 stages of operation.
01.Design and incision
02.Incision is made without using endorscope.
03.Detachment by endorscope
04.Incision on depressing brow muscle and glabella
05.Fixing : Secure SMAS on frontal bone to unsure brows are staying on desired area.
Method of endoscopic forehead and brow lift
01.Whole brow lift : Lifting both brows.
02.Lifting inner brow : Impression can be very strong with depressed inner brow. With inner brow lifting it can be a lot gentler.
03.Lateral brow lit : With depressed brow, one’s look can be sad and tired. In order to have fresh and young looking, lateral brow lifting is necessary.
04.Asymmetrical brow : Depressed side need to be elevated more when brows are asymmetrical.
05.Removing wrinkles from glabella : It can be removed when glabella wrinkles appeared serious.

    but it will be almost invisible.
  • 02.Infection : There is very low chance of infection.
    It can be occurred with absorptive thread.
  • 03.Nerve damage : There is risk of damaging sensory nerve and
    mortor nerve. But it is very low when operation is done by skilled surgeon with deep knowledge of anatomy
  • 04.Skin tightness
  • 05.Under correction
  • 06.Asymmetrical correction
