Corrugator Resection to Reduce Frowning
Many people have a subconscious tendency to frown whenever concentrating or conversing. This gives them an undesirable and unattractive appearance because they look mean or angry (Fig. 5.1). People become aware of making this facial expression when friends, family, and co-workers react to it, asking if something is wrong or why they are upset. Some who habitually frown complain of having to repeatedly reassure those around them that they are not in a bad mood. A history of prominent frowning expressions may go back to childhood, with recollections of a parent admonishing them to quit frowning or even applying tape to the glabellar area at night.
