The Inclusion of Orbicularis Oculi Muscle in the SMAS Flap in Asian Facelift: Anatomical Consideration of Orbicularis Muscle and Zygomaticus Major Muscle.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2018 Apr 4;42(2):471-478. Epub 2018 Jan 4.

Shenzhen Guanghe Dr. Yin's Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Hospital, Shenzhen, China.

Background: In the malar region, the SMAS flap can be thin and tear easily, making it difficult to securely fix it. And the surgical anatomy of the region may be unclear and confusing. The authors performed an anatomical study on the location of the lateral margin of the orbicularis oculi muscle (OOM) and the origin of the zygomaticus major muscle (ZMM) when using a high-SMAS facelift with finger-assisted spaces dissection technique, which included elevation of the SMAS flap with OOM.

Autologous Tissue Graft in Revision Medial Epicanthoplasty Using Subciliary Fat and Orbicularis Oculi Muscle.

J Craniofac Surg 2017 Nov;28(8):1972-1975

*Department of Plastic Surgery, Konkuk University School of Medicine †Laree Plastic Surgery Clinic, Seoul, Korea.

The medial epicanthal fold is one of the racial anatomic characteristics of Asians. As medial epicanthoplasty has become one of the most common cosmetic surgeries among Asians, the need for revision of overcorrected medial epicanthus also increased. In revision medial epicanthoplasty, an autologous tissue graft to the subcutaneous plane is used to reduce postoperative scar. Read More

Chen's Double Eyelid Fold Illusion: An Eye Size Assimilation Illusion Induced by a Supratarsal Fold in the Brow-Eye Unit, A Preliminary Report.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2017 Dec 25;41(6):1375-1381. Epub 2017 Aug 25.

Department of Anesthesiology, National Taiwan University Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.

Background: Double eyelidplasty can enhance the eye size and facial attractiveness of Asian individuals with single eyelids. The authors hypothesize that a supratarsal fold can induce an eye size assimilation illusion to enhance eye dimensions and aesthetics, and seek to define the optimum vertical proportion between a supratarsal fold and the eye fissure associated with maximal induction of the size assimilation illusion.

Methods: A photometric study of the replicated photographs of ten female Taiwanese patients after double eyelidplasty was designed. Read More

"Big eye" surgery: the ethics of medicalizing Asian features.

Theor Med Bioeth 2017 Jun;38(3):213-225

Department of Philosophy, Faculty of Arts, Macquarie University, Sydney, 2109, NSW, Australia.

The popularity of surgical modifications of race-typical features among Asian women has generated debates on the ethical implications of the practice. Focusing on blepharoplasty as a representative racial surgery, this article frames the ethical discussion by viewing Asian cosmetic surgery as an example of medicalization, which can be interpreted in two forms: treatment versus enhancement. In the treatment form, medicalization occurs by considering cosmetic surgery as remedy for pathologized Asian features; the pathologization usually occurs in reference to western features as the norm.

A Novel U-Flap Epicanthoplasty for Asian Patients.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2016 Aug 10;40(4):458-65. Epub 2016 Jun 10.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Shanghai Ninth People's Hospital, Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine, 639 Zhizaoju Road, Shanghai, 200011, People's Republic of China.

Background: The epicanthal fold is a distinct characteristic of the Asian upper eyelid, which may impair the beauty of the eyes and the outcome of double eyelid blepharoplasty. Although many surgical procedures have been reported, their main drawbacks include a conspicuous scar in the medial canthal area and an unnatural palpebral contour. We devised a novel surgical approach to correct the epicanthal fold with acceptable scarring. Read More

Epiblepharon in Chinese children: relationships with body mass index and surgical treatment.

J AAPOS 2016 Apr;20(2):148-52

Beijing Tongren Eye Center, Beijing Tongren Hospital, Capital Medical University; Beijing Ophthalmology &Visual Sciences Key Lab, Beijing, China. Electronic address:

Purpose: To evaluate the relationship between the incidence of lower eyelid epiblepharon and body mass index in Chinese children and report the outcomes of a rotating suture technique or the L-plasty procedure aimed at correcting the structural anomalies.

Methods: The medical records of patients treated surgically, with either rotating suture procedure or L-plasty, for lower eyelid epiblepharon were reviewed retrospectively and compared with an age-matched control group of children without epiblepharon. Body mass index (BMI) was calculated as weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. Read More

A Novel Supra-Brow Combined with Infra-Brow Lift Approach for Asian Women.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2016 Jun 22;40(3):343-8. Epub 2016 Mar 22.

Institute of Plastic Surgery, Xijing Hospital, FMMU, Changle West Road 127#, Xi'an, 710032, Shaanxi, China.

Background: Direct brow lift surgery remains popular among Asian women despite its disadvantages. The traditional direct brow lift by a supra-brow incision is not suitable for Asian women because of their unique facial features, such as higher eyebrows, wider upper eyelids, and more orbital fat. Therefore, we designed a novel brow lift technique via a supra-brow combined with an infra-brow approach for Asian women. Read More

Infrabrow Skin Excision Associated With Upper Blepharoplasty to Address Significant Dermatochalasis With Lateral Hooding in Select Asian Patients.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2017 Jan/Feb;33(1):53-56

Division of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Federal University of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.

Purpose: In Asian patients, lateral hooding in the aging upper eyelid is prominent and frequently seen. Removal of the redundant skin of this region during classic blepharoplasty tends to produce a resultant prolonged scar. Furthermore, as the height of the eyelid skin excision increases, suturing of the thick upper skin to the thin pretarsal skin can result in upper lid fullness. Read More

A Modified Method Combining Z-Epicanthoplasty and Blepharoplasty to Develop Out-Fold Type Double Eyelids.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2016 Feb 31;40(1):48-53. Epub 2015 Dec 31.

Department No. 16. of Plastic Surgery Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences & Peking Union Medical College, No. 33 Ba-Da-Chu Road, Shi Jing Shan District, Beijing, 100144, People's Republic of China.

Background: The epicanthus can weaken the effect of blepharoplasty, which makes it difficult to form the out-fold type double eyelids preferred by Asian women. The integration of blepharoplasty and Z-epicanthoplasty has become increasingly popular.

Personality and Psychological Aspects of Cosmetic Surgery.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2016 Feb 22;40(1):38-47. Epub 2015 Dec 22.

Psychology Department Substance Abuse Prevention Research Center, Kermanshah University of Medical Sciences, Kermanshah, Iran.

Background: In recent years, cosmetic surgery in Iran, which is provided almost entirely by the private sector, has gained popularity despite evidence of its potential risks. In most cases, cosmetic surgeries are done to increase self-satisfaction and self-esteem, thus seeking cosmetic surgery potentially shows an individual's psychological profile. Current evidence needs studies on the psychological profile of Asian cosmetic surgery patients. Read More
