The Subcutaneous Forehead Lift

Wolfe S. Anthony M.D.; Baird, Wilbur L. M.D.
Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery: February 1989

A limited experience (27 patients, all female) is presented utilizing the subcutaneous approach to forehead lifting. This approach has been little utilized and has been condemned in the literature for being dangerous. However, no difficulties in wound healing or alopecia have been encountered, and the procedure has the advantages of more effectively removing the vertical and transverse wrinkles in the glabellar region, raising the brows, and preserving sensation to the scalp posterior to the incision.
