dc.description.abstractPeople tend to prefer noninvasive or minimally invasive methods of facial rejuvenation, especially when it involves their face, which is the hallmark of a person's identity and impossible to hide. It is widely known that brow ptosis gives the face a "tired look" and also accentuates deformities of the upper eyelid. Most people who are interested in facial rejuvenation may not accept even a minor surgery, such as an endoscopic surgery. The senior author has developed a minimally invasive method of suspending the brow at a higher position. In this technique, there is neither surgical dissection nor a surgical incision except for four stab incisions and suture insertion, which is why we refer to it as a nonsurgical brow suspension. It is done under local anesthesia, and the brows are fixed in the position that they assume when the patient is supine. In the past 6 years, we performed 387 brow suspensions on 324 female and 63 male patients. The youngest patient was 19 years old, and the oldest was 74 years old. A retrospective chart review was done. These 387 cases were reviewed by comparison of preoperative and postoperative photographs. This approach was not only used for patients who were not interested in surgical rejuvenation but was also combined with lipofilling, laser resurfacing, and/or upper blepharoplasty. This technique is useful for correcting postsurgical brow asymmetry. We present this technique as an adjunct to the established techniques of facial rejuvenation. Despite the high patient acceptance and technical ease, it is not a replacement for the established techniques of facial rejuvenation.en_US
