As this has not been previously published in the literature, the authors aim to increase the awareness of this technique.

    Methods: The eyelid crease is marked. Read More

    A Proposed Method for Upper Eyelid and Infrabrow Tightening Using a Transcutaneous Temperature Controlled Radiofrequency Device With Opaque Plastic Eye Shields.
    J Drugs Dermatol 2016 Nov;15(11):1302-1305
    Background: Laxity of the eyelid and periorbital area, a common manifestation of aging, is usually addressed via blepharoplasty and/ or fat transfer. Given the trend toward safer, less invasive treatments preferred by those patients reticent to undergo more invasive procedures, viable alternatives have been sought. Transcutaneous temperature controlled radiofrequency (TTCRF) integrates non- invasive super cial RF treatment with automatic temperature feedback control of energy deposition, as a stimulator of overall collagen remodeling; however, the globe of the eye is particularly sensitive to RF energy.

    A Novel Supra-Brow Combined with Infra-Brow Lift Approach for Asian Women.
    Aesthetic Plast Surg 2016 Jun 22;40(3):343-8. Epub 2016 Mar 22.
    Institute of Plastic Surgery, Xijing Hospital, FMMU, Changle West Road 127#, Xi'an, 710032, Shaanxi, China.
    Background: Direct brow lift surgery remains popular among Asian women despite its disadvantages. The traditional direct brow lift by a supra-brow incision is not suitable for Asian women because of their unique facial features, such as higher eyebrows, wider upper eyelids, and more orbital fat. Therefore, we designed a novel brow lift technique via a supra-brow combined with an infra-brow approach for Asian women. Read More

    Changes in Corneal Curvature After Upper Eyelid Surgery Measured by Corneal Topography.
    J Craniofac Surg 2016 May;27(3):e235-8
    Department of Ophthalmology, Soonchunhyang University Bucheon Hospital, Soonchunhyang College of Medicine, Bucheon, Korea.
    Purpose: To analyze corneal curvature changes (eg, central corneal power and corneal astigmatism) after upper eyelid surgery, and to compare the effects of different upper eyelid procedures on corneal curvature.

    Methods: Fifty eyes of 34 patients with various degrees of dermatochalasis or ptosis underwent corneal topography before surgery, and at 6 weeks after blepharoplasty or levator resection. Patients were divided into groups according to the method of surgery. Read More

    Upper Eyelid Filling With or Without Surgical Treatment.
    Aesthetic Plast Surg 2016 Apr 18;40(2):223-35. Epub 2016 Feb 18.
    Studio Romeo, Corso Vittorio Emanuele II n. 18, 00186, Rome, Italy.
    Background: The upper eyelid of young people is characterized by a proper fullness and projection. Aging eyes show upper eyelid volume loss, symmetric or asymmetric hollowing with too much upper lid showing, dermatochalasis with skin excess. While in the past blepharoplasty surgery was the only approach used to improve eye appearance in the last years, hyaluronic acid (HA) filling of the upper eyelid area has been found very effective in reaching good eye rejuvenation and use of traditional surgical techniques can be limited.

    Anterior lamellar recession, blepharoplasty, and supratarsal fixation for cicatricial upper eyelid entropion without lagophthalmos.
    Eye (Lond) 2016 Apr 12;30(4):627-31. Epub 2016 Feb 12.
    Eye Research Center, Rassoul Akram Hospital, Iran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.
    Purpose: To assess the results of anterior lamellar recession, blepharoplasty, and supratarsal fixation procedure in patients with upper eyelid cicatricial entropion without lagophthalmos.

    Methods: In a prospective interventional case series, 52 eyelids (32 patients) were included (April 2009-December 2010). Excluded were patients with previous eyelid surgeries, lagophthalmos, and <12 months of follow-up. Read More

    Infrabrow Skin Excision Associated With Upper Blepharoplasty to Address Significant Dermatochalasis With Lateral Hooding in Select Asian Patients.
    Ophthal Plast Reconstr Surg 2017 Jan/Feb;33(1):53-56
    Division of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Federal University of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.
    Purpose: In Asian patients, lateral hooding in the aging upper eyelid is prominent and frequently seen. Removal of the redundant skin of this region during classic blepharoplasty tends to produce a resultant prolonged scar. Furthermore, as the height of the eyelid skin excision increases, suturing of the thick upper skin to the thin pretarsal skin can result in upper lid fullness. Read More

    Swiveling a Single Expanded Forehead Flap: A Novel Effective Economical Approach to Total Bilateral Upper and Lower Eyelid Reconstruction.
    J Craniofac Surg 2016 Mar;27(2):e121-3
    *Department of Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgery, KK Women's and Children's Hospital †Division of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, National University Hospital, National University Health System ‡Department of Ophthalmology, National University Hospital, National University Health System, Singapore.
    In our novel approach, a single expanded forehead flap was used to reconstruct bilateral upper and lower eyelids in orbital trauma. A 40-year-old man sustained blast injury resulting in bilateral orbital exenteration and need for bilateral socket and eyelid reconstruction. The sockets were each resurfaced with a temporalis flap.

    Outer Fascia of Orbicularis Oculi Muscle as an Anchoring Target Tissue in Double Eyelid Surgery.
    J Craniofac Surg 2016 Mar;27(2):322-7
    *Choi Yeop Plastic Surgery Clinic †Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, DongGuk University Graduate School of Medicine, Seoul, South Korea.
    Background: Natural adhesion between the levator aponeurosis and the subcutaneous layer in the upper lid is essential for an aesthetically pleasing double eyelid. The study aims to emphasize the outer fascia of orbicularis oculi muscle (OFOOM) as a fixation point on the double eyelid surgery.

    Methods: The authors examined the detailed anatomy of the anterior lamella microscopically during 28 cases of primary double eyelid surgery. Read More
