Facial Plast Surg 2018 Apr 9;34(2):164-172. Epub 2018 Apr 9.

Facial Plastic Surgery, Delray Beach, Florida.

Primary manifestations of facial aging are the reduction in subcutaneous tissue volume, especially the atrophy of fat as well as bone volume depletion which directly contribute to loss of support and laxity of the skin. Depressions and hollows develop with a visible disruption of the cosmetic facial aesthetic units resulting in harsh shadows. This is especially evident in the eyebrow and temporal regions which accentuate the appearance of brow ptosis and a hollow, almost cadaveric look to the temple. Read More

Preoperative Use of Neuromodulators to Optimize Surgical Outcomes in Upper Blepharoplasty and Brow Lift.

Aesthet Surg J 2018 Aug;38(9):941-948

University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL.

Background: Upper eyelid dermatochalasis often triggers frontalis hyperactivity in an effort to elevate the upper lids away from the visual axis. Similarly, prior neuromodulator treatment of the brow depressors may cause false elevation of the brows, diminishing the extent of preoperative brow ptosis or dermatochalasis. Studies have quantified postoperative brow ptosis and recurrent dermatochalasis following upper blepharoplasty, but a methodology to predict the postoperative brow position remains to be elucidated.

Neuroophthalmology 2018 Feb 12;42(1):49-51. Epub 2017 Jun 12.

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Neurosciences, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.

Brown syndrome is characterised by impaired supraduction worse in adduction due to a restricted superior oblique tendon passing through the trochlea. A few reports have previously described Brown syndrome after upper eyelid surgery, including blepharoplasty and ptosis repair. The authors describe two additional cases of Brown syndrome following ptosis repair. Read More

Facial Asymmetry: Brow and Ear Position.

Facial Plast Surg 2018 Apr 21;34(2):230-234. Epub 2018 Feb 21.

Department of Ophthalmology, Albany Medical Center, Albany, New York.

The purpose of the current study was to analyze brow and ear position, and examine the relationship between these structures in patients presenting for blepharoplasty evaluation. A retrospective chart review was performed, which included all patients presenting to one oculoplastic physician for a blepharoplasty evaluation from November, 2012 to March, 2014. The prevalence of brow ptosis and brow and ear asymmetry was calculated; the proportional distribution was determined, and chi-square analysis and the z-test of proportions were used to calculate the significance.

Floppy Eyelid Syndrome: An Unfamiliar Entity for Plastic Surgeons.

Ann Plast Surg 2018 02;80(2S Suppl 1):S40-S47

Background: Floppy eyelid syndrome (FES) is typically characterized by chronic eye irritation and an increased laxity of the upper eyelid that can be easily everted by applying minimal upward traction. However, it is a clinical entity that is less known to most plastic surgeons. Blepharoptosis is one of the most common features, which links to FES, for which a thorough differential diagnosis has become important in directing proper medical treatment. Read More
