• Our forehead lift technique is a modification of several techniques that have evolved since Lexer first elucidated a surgical approach to diminish the signs of aging in the upper part of the face. It essentially consists of the development of a forehead advancement-rotation flap through a coronal incision to deal with ptosis, and muscle incision and excision to deal with forehead and glabellar creases. The surgical goals are achieved readily in the vast majority of cases. Morbidity is minimal, but real, and can be decreased by astute observance of the details of the surgical techniques outlined. A review of 51 cases assessed success in achieving the surgical goals and the morbidity associated with the procedure.
