Upper Blepharoplasty - Nuances for Success.

Facial Plast Surg Clin North Am 2021 May 24;29(2):179-193. Epub 2021 Apr 24.

W Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 06 - 28/29, Mount Elizabeth Novena Specialist Center, 38 Irrawaddy Road, Singapore 329563, Singapore.

Given the central importance of the "eyes," meaning the periorbital region, to facial appearance, the motivated blepharoplasty patient has the opportunity to improve appearance significantly beyond the minimum of age reversal, to reveal inner beauty or add attractiveness. Bright and beautiful eyes have good three-dimensional contouring. The benefits of a quality eyelid crease enable the surgical focus to be on lid contouring with a reduced requirement for lid skin and fat excision. Read More

Lower eyelid blepharoplasty: An overview.

Indian J Ophthalmol 2020 Oct;68(10):2075-2083

Research Associate, Jules Stein Eye Institute, UCLA, Los Angeles, California, USA.

Of the two common techniques of lower blepharoplasty, the transconjunctival approach is limited to young patients with prominent herniation of lower fat pad without skin excess and the transcutaneous approach to patients requiring skin excision. However, the current trends not only highlight the traditional sculpting of the three orbital fat pads in lower lid blepharoplasty but also additional relocation of the intraorbital fats for correcting the inferior orbital hollowing. The purpose of this review is to analyze the published literature on common types, techniques, indications, and outcomes of the multiple surgical variants of lower lid blepharoplasty often aimed at treating the redundant skin, steatoblepharon, tear trough deformity, lid laxity, and dermatochalasis, thereby to correct the negative vector and inferior orbital hollowing along with effacement of the lid cheek junction.
