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

Dermatochalasis Through Decades: A Histopathologic Study.

Ann Plast Surg 2021 03;86(3):340-344

Eye Research Center, The Five Senses Institute.

Objectives: Three prior studies (2008, 2011, 2018) histopathologically compared the eyelid specimens of patients with dermatochalasis (DC, undergoing blepharoplasty) with a control group and proposed that DC may begin with subclinical inflammation leading to elastolysis and lymphostasis. With growing number of younger patients consulting for blepharoplasty, the unanswered question is whether histopathologic changes of DC differ between the younger and the older.

Patients And Methods: In this prospective case series, 20 right upper eyelid skin of 20 nonsmoker, class 3 Fitzpatrik skin type women (30-68 years old) were histopathologically examined. Read More

J Craniofac Surg 2021 Jan 28. Epub 2021 Jan 28.

Eye Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University, Wenzhou, China Sydney Hospital and Sydney Eye Hospital, Sydney, NSW, Australia.

It is not able to consider the effects of gravity on the upper eyelid, thus may lead to asymmetric postoperative appearance. The authors herein report a novel preoperative upright design (PUD) that can accurately determine the amount of skin excision with patients' eyes open in dermatochalasis correction. Read More
