What is it? Why have I never heard of it before?
A corrugator myectomy is normally performed on patients who are receiving a brow lift (if they opt to have it done). This procedure is the complete or partial removal of the corrugator muscle (the muscle that draws the eyebrows together). That means that this muscle’s strength will be significantly reduced or completely gone.
Most patients that opt to have a corrugator myectomy feel that this is a healthy and more permanent alternative to dermal fillers or BOTOX injections for this area.
There is also a procedure known as a corrugator myotomy which is similar in the fact that it deals with your brow muscle. The difference between the two procedures is that in a myotomy your brow muscle is only cut partway in order to reduce the brow furrowing movement.
Other names that this procedure is know by is a corrugator excision, or a corrugator clipping.
For more information about this procedure please contact Dr. Kim or a plastic surgeon near you.
