Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Ankara Numune Training and Research Hospital, Ankara.

The ugly face of civil war shows itself in the desperate patients and their extreme sequellae. The options for reconstruction of patients with late-term serious sequellae decrease and their treatments also become more difficult. A 31-year-old male patient was injured 18 months ago due to a bomb explosion and received long-term treatment through local wound care in his country. Read More

Silicone-Based Scar Cream for Post Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty-associated Cicatricial and Hypertrophic Scarring

J Drugs Dermatol 2019 May;18(5):440-446

PURPOSE: Silicone cream has been shown to improve the appearance of postoperative scars. Nevertheless, surgeons may incorporate intralesional wound modulators such as a triamcinolone and/or 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) for scars that do not completely heal well or those that do not completely respond to other treatment options such as silicone cream. This study sought to determine whether a silicone-based topical scar cream that incorporates selective growth factors can help reduce the incidence of postoperative cicatricial and hypertrophic changes in upper eyelid blepharoplasty incisions.

Local retro-orbicularis oculus fat (ROOF) resection in upper blepharoplasty: A retrospective evaluation study of 65 bilateral upper blepharoplasties.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2019 Aug 20;72(8):1373-1378. Epub 2019 Apr 20.

Department of Ophthalmology, Tongji Hospital, Tongji University School of Medicine, 389 Xin Cun Road, Putuo district, Shanghai 200065, China. Electronic address:

Background: Puffy upper eyelids are normal in Asians, and full-incision blepharoplasty is commonly performed to remove some orbital fat to ameliorate the problem, but not all patients would exhibit obvious improvement. Local retro-orbicularis oculus fat (ROOF) is a layer of fibrofatty soft tissue that lies much deep into the orbicularis oculi in the upper eyelid, which is an important factor in the formation of puffy upper eyelids. This study was carried out to evaluate the clinical application (including the evaluation of photographs for the thickness of upper eyelid) of upper blepharoplasty combined with ROOF resection for correcting puffy upper eyelids.

Clin Anat 2020 Apr 22;33(3):338-342. Epub 2019 May 22.

Department of Orthopaedics, Shandong Provincial Hospital Affiliated to Shandong University, Jinan, People's Republic of China.

The Asian eyelid has distinctive anatomical properties. Although the upper eyelid is reported in the literature to have no subcutaneous fat layer, we have often noticed adipose tissue below the upper eyelid skin during ophthalmic plastic surgeries. The aim of the present study was to examine the anatomical and histological features of subcutaneous adipose tissue in Asian upper eyelids using biopsies and microscopic morphological analysis.
