Incision and excision

The inferior incision line follows the natural superior hairline of the brow.

The superior incision is based on the measured maximum elevation at the lateral 2/3 of the brow. Medially and laterally the incision is tapered to meet the inferior incision such that an ellipse is created.

The skin is excised down to the periosteum.
