Project Description

This sequential series of still art is prepared for a journal article as well as slide projection. The most important step of the procedure (inset F) is also animated as a separate GIF file, and the client used it in their social media. Animated GIFs are a relatively new medium highly recommended for all medical illustrators as value adding to their product. GIF animations look very attractive in social media, helping authors and journals highlight the most crucial aspects of their argument.  The Jigsaw cutting action is a relatively difficult concept to communicate, and GIF animation is a perfect fit for displaying the movement.  The Gliding Brow Lift is a minimally invasive technique based on progressing through superficial and deep planes in order to release the Deep temporal fascia with a Jigsaw cutting action. The camera angle chosen and the selective display of certain structures intend to accentuate the superficial and deep retaining ligaments in the temple and forehead regions.
