The Boomerang Epicanthoplasty: A Technique That Avoids Hooding.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Oct;29(7):1813-1816

iWELL Plastic Surgery Clinic, Seoul.

Redraping is an increasingly common epicanthoplasty method. However, hooding usually remains at the medial part of the upper eyelid. The authors innovated a modification of redraping epicanthoplasty using excision, resulting in a boomerang-shaped defect that does not lead to hooding of the medial upper eyelid. Read More

A Modified Double Eyelid Plastic Surgery Method: Continuous Buried Suture Method Accompanied by Simultaneous Correction of Mild Blepharoptosis.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2018 Dec 23;42(6):1565-1570. Epub 2018 Aug 23.

Department of Neurosurgery, Mackay Memorial Hospital, No. 45 Minsheng Road, Tamshui District, New Taipei City, Taiwan.

Background: Double eyelid surgery with a buried suture is a popular plastic surgery procedure in Asia owing to the relatively minor scarring and quick recovery associated with it. In this article, we present a new approach involving a continuous single-loop buried suture method, which expands the operating site to the conjunctiva and the aponeurosis-Müller's muscle complex.

Methods: The medical records of 42 patients (80 eyes) who underwent double-eyelid blepharoplasty were retrospectively reviewed. Read More

The Double Thread Buried Nonincisional Blepharoplasty Technique.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Nov;29(8):2307-2309

Lamar Clinic, Daegu, Republic of Korea.

The nonincisional blepharoplasty technique is widely practiced because it is relatively simple, causes less scarring than the incisional technique, provides a quick recovery, and allows easy correction. Although various modified nonincisional techniques have been used to create a more natural appearance, complications such as loosening of the double fold and regression of the double fold line may still occur. So the authors introduce the double thread buried nonincisional blepharoplasty technique to reduce such complications. Read More

Double eyelid surgery by using palpebral marginal incision technique in Asians.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2018 10 11;71(10):1481-1486. Epub 2018 Jun 11.

Department of Plastic and Reconstruction, Shanghai Changhai Hospital Affiliated to Second Military Medical University, 168th Chang Hai Road, Shanghai, People's Republic of China. Electronic address:

Background: Approximately 50% of Asians do not have upper eyelid creases. Full-incision methods may leave obvious scars and buried-suture methods cannot remove excess tissues to create a double eyelid. The new palpebral marginal incision technique masked the incision at the upper palpebral margin and removed the excess tissue, thereby achieving scarless and natural double eyelids. Read More

Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty: A Novel Method to Predict and Improve Outcomes.

Aesthet Surg J 2018 Oct;38(11):NP156-NP164

William Beaumont Hospital, Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine in Royal Oak, Michigan.

Background: In some upper eyelid blepharoplasties, maximal skin removal may not result in desired outcomes; raising crease height can therefore be considered. Currently, there is no method to determine the amount of skin to be excised and/or crease elevation required to achieve a specific outcome.

Objective: This study extrapolated an equation to determine amount of skin excision and/or lid crease elevation needed to achieve a specific eyelid margin to fold distance (MFD). Read More

Department of Anatomy, Faculty of Medicine, Ege University, 35100, Izmir, Turkey.

Background: Reconstruction of the upper eyelids following traumatic, congenital and tumor surgeries is often difficult owing to a variety of reasons including the influence of the lacrimal system, visual system and aesthetic appearance. In most cases of the reconstruction in the upper eyelid tarsal plate is the main anatomical area that should be protected against the damage. The aim of this study is to investigate the types and the measurements of the tarsal plate of the upper eyelids in Anatolian population. Read More
