Local retro-orbicularis oculus fat (ROOF) resection in upper blepharoplasty: A retrospective evaluation study of 65 bilateral upper blepharoplasties.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2019 Aug 20;72(8):1373-1378. Epub 2019 Apr 20.

Department of Ophthalmology, Tongji Hospital, Tongji University School of Medicine, 389 Xin Cun Road, Putuo district, Shanghai 200065, China. Electronic address:

Background: Puffy upper eyelids are normal in Asians, and full-incision blepharoplasty is commonly performed to remove some orbital fat to ameliorate the problem, but not all patients would exhibit obvious improvement. Local retro-orbicularis oculus fat (ROOF) is a layer of fibrofatty soft tissue that lies much deep into the orbicularis oculi in the upper eyelid, which is an important factor in the formation of puffy upper eyelids. This study was carried out to evaluate the clinical application (including the evaluation of photographs for the thickness of upper eyelid) of upper blepharoplasty combined with ROOF resection for correcting puffy upper eyelids.

A Modified Double Eyelid Plastic Surgery Method: Continuous Buried Suture Method Accompanied by Simultaneous Correction of Mild Blepharoptosis.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2018 Dec 23;42(6):1565-1570. Epub 2018 Aug 23.

Department of Neurosurgery, Mackay Memorial Hospital, No. 45 Minsheng Road, Tamshui District, New Taipei City, Taiwan.

Background: Double eyelid surgery with a buried suture is a popular plastic surgery procedure in Asia owing to the relatively minor scarring and quick recovery associated with it. In this article, we present a new approach involving a continuous single-loop buried suture method, which expands the operating site to the conjunctiva and the aponeurosis-Müller's muscle complex.

Methods: The medical records of 42 patients (80 eyes) who underwent double-eyelid blepharoplasty were retrospectively reviewed. Read More

Double eyelid surgery by using palpebral marginal incision technique in Asians.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2018 10 11;71(10):1481-1486. Epub 2018 Jun 11.

Department of Plastic and Reconstruction, Shanghai Changhai Hospital Affiliated to Second Military Medical University, 168th Chang Hai Road, Shanghai, People's Republic of China. Electronic address:

Background: Approximately 50% of Asians do not have upper eyelid creases. Full-incision methods may leave obvious scars and buried-suture methods cannot remove excess tissues to create a double eyelid. The new palpebral marginal incision technique masked the incision at the upper palpebral margin and removed the excess tissue, thereby achieving scarless and natural double eyelids. Read More
