What is Frontalis Suspension?
Doctor Answers 1
Frontalis suspension of blepaharoptosis
The frontalis is the muscle in the forehead that is responsible for raising your eyebrows. It is a very large muscle that spans the entire forehead and is responsible for the horizontal lines. When the levator advancement or repair does not work. Eye surgeons will tend to take a piece of tendon that will than be used to span from the eyelid to the forehead. Therefore any eyebrow raising activity can be transfered to the eyelid.
