Abstract

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. Transpalpebral eyebrow lift is a technique that produces satisfactory results in mild-to-moderate eyebrow ptosis improving eyebrow lateral third ptosis and glabellar wrinkles.
