  6. 6. The insertion lines of fascia planes on skull
  9. 9. The surprised look – excessive elevation of medial edge of brow
  10. 10. The sad look – inferior location of lateral edge of brow
  11. 11. The Brow elevator - Frontalis
  12. 12. Frontalis – Brow elevation & formation of transverse rhytids
  13. 13. The Medial Brow depressor - Procerus
  14. 14. Procerus – Inferior & Medial displacement of medial eyebrow and transverse rhytids at nasal radix
  15. 15. The Medial Brow depressors – Corrugators & Orbicularis
  16. 16. The Corrugators - Vertical and Oblique rhytids

  24. 24. Pearls… <ul><li>The Frontalis is a primary brow elevator and should not be weakened during a procedure aimed at brow elevation. </li></ul><ul><li>The Procerus and Corrugators are primary brow depressors and should be weakened to achieve medial brow elevation. </li></ul>
  25. 25. Pearls… <ul><li>Vertical glabellar rhytids are best corrected by surgical alteration of transverse head of Corrugator. </li></ul><ul><li>Horizontal glabellar rhytids are best corrected by alteration of the Procerus. </li></ul><ul><li>Oblique rhytids require a combined alteration of Depressor superciliaris and oblique head of Corrugator. </li></ul>
