Dissection of Central Forehead and Temporal Pocket with Periosteal Release

  • Don O. Kikkawa


A 15 blade is used to make incisions down to periosteum. Through the paracentral incisions, blunt elevator dissection in the subperiosteal plane is performed. The dissection extends laterally to the temporalis line and posterior to the vertex of the skull, permitting shifting of tissues posteriorly.
