Bone tunnel fixation
Forehead lift method of fixation is variable and lots of different methods have been described with different rates of success.
The comparison of to different techniques in a RCT has not been reported before.
The objective is to compare periosteum versus bone fixation in forehead lift, in a randomized, blinded, controlled, split-face trial.
