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

Aesthet Surg J 2018 Feb 21. Epub 2018 Feb 21.

From the 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.

The Aesthetic Analyzing of Midface Ratio After Folding Aponeurosis of Levator Palpebrae Superioris Muscle in the Ptosis Correction.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Mar;29(2):482-485

Department of Plastic Surgery, Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hospital, Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou City.

Background: Some fordless-eyelid patients with moderate upper lid ptosis characterize in a higher eyebrow position which leads to an increased midfacial ratio. Apart from performing blepharoplasty to create dynamic folds, additional procedures such as folding aponeurosis of levator palpebrae superioris muscle were effective to revise the enlarged ratio of midface through lowering eyebrow, which gains good aesthetic results. However, the specific changes in the proportion of facial aesthetics and the importance of these change were serious lack in the literature as far as the authors know. Read More

Ann Plast Surg 2017 Oct;79(4):334-340

From the *Gyalumhan Plastic Surgery, Seoul; and †Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Chungnam National University Hospital, Daejeon, South Korea; ‡ELEE Plastic Surgery, Houston, TX; and §Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Severance Hospital, Seoul; ∥Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Chungnam National University College of Medicine, Daejeon; and ¶Department of Medicine, Graduate School of Yonsei University, Seoul, South Korea.

Background: Mild to moderate blepharoptosis, or ptosis, is relatively common among Asians, and it is not uncommon to offer ptosis correction at the time of double-eyelid surgery in this patient population. The traditional open approaches to ptosis correction are subject to scarring and prolonged recovery time, whereas the newer nonincisional approaches are marred by issues of incomplete correction or recurrence. This study describes a new nonincisional technique that overcomes the limitations of current methods by using conjoint fascial sheath (CFS) for suspension. Read More

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Tongji Hospital, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, Hubei, China.

In double eyelid blepharoplasty, unexpected bleeding may cause intraoperative hematoma, swelling, and temporary ptosis, which could cause asymmetry and prolong recovery time. In 1725 patients (3450 eyes), double eyelid blepharoplasties were performed on Chinese patients from January 2014 to July 2016 by our senior author. In 36 eyes, the authors identified a variant artery, which the authors named the "sentinel artery," located in the inferolateral superficial orbital septum. Read More

Mylike Medical Cosmetic Hospital, Mylike Tower, 789 West Yan'an Road, Changning District, Shanghai, China.

Background: The classical levator resection (LR) technique for correcting ptosis involves separating the levator palpebrae superioris muscle (LPS) completely, which will inevitably collapse the muscle. The modified surgical method involving retention of the LPS suspensory system can allow for more contractility of the levator muscle and thus maximize protection of the eyelid structure.

Background: Several treatments have been described for the treatment of congenital ptosis, but there are few studies that analyze the effectiveness of a therapeutic approach rather than a single technique.

Aims: In this study, we aim to evaluate the effectiveness of our therapeutic algorithm, which relies on levator muscle resection and frontalis suspension with silicone rods, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), or autologous fascia lata.

Methods: We retrospectively analyzed all patients affected by congenital ptosis who underwent corrective surgery at a single department between January 1998 and January 2016. Read More
