Forehead Lift Procedure Gets Thumbs Up

Most patients undergoing an endoscopic procedure to eliminate forehead furrows indicated they were highly satisfied with the long-term results, researchers said.

Among 98 patients who underwent the procedure from 1994 to 2007 and were contacted an average of 38 months later (range 9 to 108 months), the mean satisfaction score on a 0-10 scale was 7.1, reported Nikolaos A. Papadopulos, MD, PhD, of Munich Technical University in Munich, and colleagues.

Because the procedure lifts the eyebrows along with smoothing wrinkles in the forehead, measurements of midpupil-to-eyebrow distances before and after surgery provide a means of quantifying results, the researchers explained in their report in the Sept./Oct. issue of Archives of Facial and Plastic Surgery.

“Long lasting results are achieved [as evidenced by] a mean midpupil-to-eyebrow elevation of 5.6 mm in a relaxed position after 5.5 years,” Papadopulos and colleagues wrote.

The endoscopic procedure was first introduced in 1992, when coronal lifts were then the dominant way to eliminate forehead wrinkles.
