Incision Technique for Endoscopic Forehead Elevation

  • Andrew S. Eiseman


Care must be taken when creating the incisions during endoscopic forehead elevation. Although the incisions are usually hidden within the hair line, meticulous surgical technique can limit both alopecia and scarring. Usually five incisions are made: one central, two paracentral, and two in the temporal region (Figure 69.1). All five incisions are made 1–2 cm within the hair line and are usually 1–2 cm in length.
