Abstract

A myriad of techniques have been described to correct brow ptosis via a blepharoplasty incision, mid-forehead incision, endoscopic approach, pretrichial incision, coronal approach or direct brow lift. There are varying risks and results for each technique including paresthesia, facial nerve injury, alopecia, and unsightly scars. In this article we describe the mini-direct browlift technique that utilizes bone anchored sutures and allows for good cosmesis and control of brow height with minimal morbidity.
