ABSTRACT

The position and orientation of eyebrows plays an important part in the overall appearance of the face. Many incisions and approaches have been described to elevate a ptotic eyebrow. It is essential to understand the periorbital anatomy and the biomechanics of elevation and fixation of the brow and forehead soft tissues. If properly planned and executed, surgical brow lifts can restore a youthful appearance to eyelids and the orbit.
