Corrugator Resection


  • Removes Frown Lines

The word corrugator refers to a muscle known as the corrugator supercilii, one of the three eyelid muscles. It is small, narrow, and shaped like a pyramid. This is also known as the “frowning” muscle. The corrugator resection procedure removes this slender muscle, therefore calming and smoothing that part of the brow. 


Who Might Benefit From A Corrugator Resection Surgery?

  • Men and women who are bothered by the constant frown lines that make you look angry or annoyed. 
  • Anyone who has developed an immunity to neuromodulators. 

How is Corrugator Resection surgery performed?

  • This procedure is done at a hospital or surgery center as an outpatient. 
  • The patient will be under anesthesia and the procedure lasts about an hour. 
  • An incision along the eyelid crease of both eyes is made and the corrugator muscle is then removed, or we can perform it through an endoscopic approach with hidden incisions in the hairline. 

What can be expected after a Corrugator Resection surgery?

  • Discomfort is mild. 
  • You will be able to shower the day after surgery. 
  • Some bruising will occur and may last up to 2 weeks. 
  • Strenuous activity should be avoided for up to 6 weeks. 
  • Some patients notice numbness in the forehead where the muscle was removed. This will subside over time. 

Why should I consider a Corrugator Resection surgery? 

  • Permanent solution for removing frown lines. 
  • May assist in migraine headaches. 
  • Alternative for those patients who have immunity to neuromodulators.
