Complications of the forehead-brow lift.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The actual and possible sequelae and complications associated with a series of forehead-brow lifts are reviewed. Based on a review of the records of 61 patients who underwent the procedure, we recommend that the forehead-brow lift be primarily intended to correct soft tissue ptosis of the upper face. Because of the significant number of patients who required a revision upper blepharoplasty, this procedure either should not be combined with a brow lift, or the patient should be warned of the probable necessity of a later revision upper blepharoplasty.
