Upper Facial Assessment

The upper face should be assessed for volume loss in the temples and forehead, position of the eyebrow, and the presence of excess skin in the upper and lower eyelids. In addition, the presence of static lines at rest and dynamic lines during animation should be evaluated in the forehead, lateral canthus, temples, and eyebrows.[9,11]
