Beijing Lomeye Cosmetic Surgery Clinic, Beijing 100022, China. Electronic address:

We aimed to investigate the feasibility and efficacy of early correction of severe blepharoptosis after double-eyelid blepharoplasty using conjoint fascial sheath (CFS) suspension. From July 2013 to July 2016, 23 patients (25 eyes) with severe blepharoptosis were treated with CFS suspension and followed up for 12-36 months. The levator function, margin reflex distance, patients' satisfaction with the appearance of the double eyelids, and complications were retrospectively analysed. Read More

Oculoplastic considerations for refractive procedures.

Curr Opin Ophthalmol 2020 Jul;31(4):241-246

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York City, New York, USA.

Purpose Of Review: Refractive surgery is one of the most popular elective procedures performed in the world. Given that dry eye is a common complaint following keratorefractive surgery, evaluation, and treatment of periocular conditions that further predispose the patient to dry eye symptoms is an important part of the presurgical assessment. Periocular conditions and surgeries can also affect the ocular surface and keratometry, and should be addressed. Read More

All India Ophthalmological Society - Oculoplastics Association of India consensus statement on preferred practices in oculoplasty and lacrimal surgery during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Indian J Ophthalmol 2020 06;68(6):974-980

Advanced Eye Care Center, PGIMER, Chandigarh, India.

Oculoplastic surgeries encompass both emergency surgeries for traumatic conditions and infectious disorders as well as elective aesthetic procedures. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about a drastic change in this practice. Given the highly infectious nature of the disease as well as the global scarcity of medical resources; it is only prudent to treat only emergent conditions during the pandemic as we incorporate evidence-based screening and protective measures into our practices.

Subtle Eyelid Retraction after Lower Blepharoplasty.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2019 Oct 27;72(10):1682-1687. Epub 2019 Jun 27.

Eye and Facial Plastic Surgery Consultants, 1717 Langhorne-Newtown Road, Suite 150, Langhorne, PA 19047, United States; Wills Eye Hospital, Division of Oculoplastics, 840 Walnut Street, Philadelphia PA 19107, United States. Electronic address:

Background: Lower blepharoplasty is one of the commonest cosmetic surgeries performed in the United States. The delicate balance of the lower eyelid may be detrimentally altered in lower blepharoplasty, leading to lower eyelid retraction with the attendant functional and cosmetic consequences. Marginal reflex distance-2 (MRD2) is an insensitive measure for subtle lower eyelid retraction, and the MRD2 at the lateral limbus (MRD2) and tarsal marginal show (TMS) may be more sensitive in identifying eyelid retraction and eversion.

Department of Ophthalmology, Assaf Harofeh Medical Center, Zerifin.

Purpose: To evaluate the efficacy of Müller's muscle-conjunctival resection combined with tarsectomy for the treatment of congenital ptosis.

Methods: A retrospective, noncomparative case series was performed on 38 eyes of 36 patients who underwent Müller's muscle-conjunctival resection combined with tarsectomy for the treatment of congenital ptosis. Age range was 2-25 years (mean: 7. Read More

Transposition Upper Blepharoplasty With Orbital Retaining Ligament Release.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Sep/Oct;35(5):509-512

TOC Eye and Face, Austin, Texas, U.S.A.

Purpose: Volume restoration is an important component of aesthetic facial rejuvenation, particularly in the brow and upper eyelid regions. In this study, the authors describe transposition of the central, preaponeurotic fat pad in the sub-brow preperiosteal plane with full release of the brow during upper blepharoplasty.

Methods: A retrospective review including all patients who underwent transposition of the upper eyelid central, preaponeurotic fat pad at the time of upper blepharoplasty. Read More

Supine Test: A New Test for Detecting Lacrimal Gland Prolapse Before Upper Blepharoplasty.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Nov/Dec;35(6):581-585

Eye Department, Eye Research Center, Rasoul Akram Hospital, Iran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Purpose: To introduce a new (Supine) test and assess the values of lateral eyelid bulging for diagnosis of lacrimal gland (LG) prolapse before upper blepharoplasty.

Methods: In a prospective case series (2011-2017), lateral eyelid bulging and Supine Test were recorded, preoperatively. Lacrimal gland prolapse was graded as mild (<4 mm), moderate (4-7 mm), and severe (>7 mm). Read More

Transconjunctival Müller's muscle Tucking Method for Non-incisional Correction of Mild Ptosis: The Effectiveness and Maintenance.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2019 08 29;43(4):938-945. Epub 2019 Apr 29.

Yonsei ENB Plastic Surgery Clinic, 599-4 Apgujeong B/D 9th floor, Shinsa-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, 135-893, Republic of Korea.

Background: In patients with a mild degree ptosis who undergo non-incisional double-eyelid blepharoplasty, simultaneous correction of ptosis is needed to prevent loosening. The transconjunctival Müller's muscle tucking (TMMT) method may be useful in these cases.

Objectives: The authors performed this study to present the details of the current use of the TMMT method and to provide objective evidence for ptosis correction and its sustained effect. Read More

A Novel Medial Canthal Reconstruction Technique in Children With Blepharophimosis Syndrome.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Sep/Oct;35(5):506-508

Craniofacial Unit, Great Ormond Street Hospital, London, United Kingdom.

Purpose: There are different techniques for medial canthoplasty in blepharophimosis syndrome where individuals have epicanthus inversus and telecanthus leading to typical facial appearances. These methods have potential problems with scarring, epistaxis, and extrusion of metal plates.

Methods: The authors describe a novel technique of medial canthal reconstruction using titanium microplates with microscrew fixation to the anterior lacrimal crest, with effective, safe, and reproducible results. Read More

Surgical Predictors of Reduced Marginal Reflex Distance After Upper Blepharoplasty.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Nov/Dec;35(6):566-568

Division of Orbital and Oculoplastic Surgery, Stein and Doheny Eye Institutes, University of California-Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.

Purpose: Ptosis may occur in certain cases after upper blepharoplasty. The authors aim to characterize the incidence of postoperative marginal reflex distance (MRD1) reduction after upper blepharoplasty and surgical variables that may predict this occurrence.

Methods: In this cross-sectional study, patients > 18 years old undergoing upper blepharoplasty were screened. Read More

Single Suture Müeller Muscle Conjunctival Resection (ssMMCR): A Modified Technique for Ptosis Repair.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Jul/Aug;35(4):403-406

Division of Oculofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, UC San Diego Viterbi Family Department of Ophthalmology, Shiley Eye Institute, La Jolla, California.

Purpose: To evaluate the efficacy in degree of ptosis correction achieved by single suture Müeller muscle conjunctival resection (ssMMCR) when compared with that of traditional MMCR.

Methods: A retrospective chart analysis of patients who underwent either ssMMCR or traditional MMCR at 2 institutions. Single suture MMCR was performed after using a ptosis clamp to imbricate conjunctiva and Müeller muscle. Read More

Department of Dermatology, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Background: Baggy lower eyelids (BLEs) are a common cosmetic problem that is treated using various methods. However, validated objective methods for evaluating the treatment are limited.

Aims: A novel BLE correction procedure, transconjunctival fat resection, and subsequent fat grafting, was assessed using the orbital gray scale (OGS), a previously suggested objective measure for BLEs. Read More
