Introduction: The primary goal of blepharoplasty for blepharoptosis and blepharochalasis is to elevate the upper eyelid to restore a full field of vision, although many surgeons also aim to provide a better aesthetic outcome. Several facial configuration changes may occur following blepharoplasty. This study examined the effectiveness of vessel clips to preoperatively predict facial configuration alterations. Read More

Functional brow lifting.

Brandyn Dunn

Facial Plast Surg 2022 Jun 23. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City, United States.

Brow ptosis is an abnormal descent of the eyebrow resulting in a displeased appearance and/or functional deficit. While most cases of brow ptosis do not result in a functional impairment, functional brow surgery is generally reserved for individuals with severe brow asymmetry or visual field deficit related to excess soft tissue pushing downwards on the eyelid. A combination of both intrinsic and extrinsic anatomic factors contributes to an unfavorable brow shape, contour, and position. Read More

Direct Browlift.

Clin Plast Surg 2022 Jul;49(3):409-414

Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cole Eye Institute, 9500 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44195, USA.

Direct browlifting comprises various techniques to lift the brows using incisions on or around the brows. The classic direct browlift involves removing an ellipse of skin and subcutaneous tissue within or just above the brow cilia. However, the technique can be modified to address only lateral brow ptosis, to place the incision in the midforehead or the eyelid crease, and to place the incisions in different areas during bilateral surgery to attempt to improve symmetry.

Simultaneous Double Eyelid Blepharoplasty and Blepharoptosis Correction With Levator Aponeurosis Plication Technique: Clinical Experience of 108 Cases.

Ann Plast Surg 2022 06 18;88(6):606-611. Epub 2022 Feb 18.

From the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Xijing Hospital, Forth Military Medical University, Xi'an, Shaanxi, China.

Background: Fifty percent of Asians are born without a supratarsal fold (also called single eyelid), and double eyelid blepharoplasty is one of the most commonly performed and most popular facial cosmetic surgeries in the Asian population. However, patients with single eyelid frequently present with concomitant mild blepharoptosis (degree of ptosis, ≤2 mm), which often fails to cause the attention of surgeons and misses correction.

Methods: A retrospective study of all patients who underwent double eyelid blepharoplasty and blepharoptosis correction simultaneously with the modified levator aponeurosis plication technique was performed from June of 2017 to June of 2020. Read More

Upper Blepharoplasty and Brow Rejuvenation in Men.

Richard J Warren

Clin Plast Surg 2022 Apr;49(2):197-212

University of British Columbia and Vancouver Plastic Surgery Center, 777 West Broadway, Suite 1000, Vancouver, British Columbia V5Z4J7, Canada. Electronic address:

The upper lid-brow junction is a complex anatomic zone that undergoes many interconnected age-related changes. Although considerable effort has gone into defining the ideal female eye and brow, no such work has been done for the male. Typically, men develop forehead and glabellar lines in conjunction with either upper lid hooding, brow ptosis, or blepharoptosis, whereas some men develop hollowing of the upper lid sulcus.

Addition of "Septal Window" to Lower Blepharoplasty for the Management of Fat of the Lower Eyelids.

Ann Plast Surg 2022 05;88(3 Suppl 3):S214-S218

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Saint Barnabas Medical Center, Livingston, NJ.

Background: The most common reason for dissatisfaction and reoperation in lower blepharoplasty patients is persistent bulging of the lateral fat pad. This compartment contributes the most to fat herniation and yet is the most commonly overlooked. The addition of a septal window, a small opening of the septum on the most prominent part of the lateral fat compartment, helps with precise removal of lateral fat and allows for additional fat excision after septal reset without disrupting the arcuate expansion.

The extended submuscular fibroadipose tissue (SMFAT) resection and ladder suture technique for patients with a puffy SMFAT upper eyelid.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2022 Jun 31;75(6):1993-2000. Epub 2022 Jan 31.

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

Background: In East Asians, a common method to ameliorate puffy eyelids is to resect the excess orbital fat and the orbicularis. However, in some patients, a satisfactory improvement cannot be achieved because of the thick submuscular fibroadipose tissue (SMFAT) and minimal orbital fat. The SMFAT lies between the orbicularis and the orbital septum and can also be found in the pretarsal area. Read More
