    Preoperative Use of Neuromodulators to Optimize Surgical Outcomes in Upper Blepharoplasty and Brow Lift.
    Aesthet Surg J 2018 Feb 21. Epub 2018 Feb 21.
    From the University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL.
    Background: Upper eyelid dermatochalasis often triggers frontalis hyperactivity in an effort to elevate the upper lids away from the visual axis. Similarly, prior neuromodulator treatment of the brow depressors may cause false elevation of the brows, diminishing the extent of preoperative brow ptosis or dermatochalasis. Studies have quantified postoperative brow ptosis and recurrent dermatochalasis following upper blepharoplasty, but a methodology to predict the postoperative brow position remains to be elucidated.

    A waiting time of 7 min is sufficient to reduce bleeding in oculoplastic surgery following the administration of epinephrine together with local anaesthesia.
    Acta Ophthalmol 2017 Dec 13. Epub 2017 Dec 13.
    Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund, Ophthalmology, Skane University Hospital, Lund University, Lund, Sweden.

This is based on clinical experience and indirect measurements of perfusion using methods such as laser Doppler flowmetry and oxygen spectroscopy. However, the only study in which bleeding has been measured quantitatively in an intra-operative setting in humans showed that the full haemostatic effect was not achieved until 30 min after anaesthesia.

    The Aesthetic Analyzing of Midface Ratio After Folding Aponeurosis of Levator Palpebrae Superioris Muscle in the Ptosis Correction.
    J Craniofac Surg 2018 Mar;29(2):482-485
    Department of Plastic Surgery, Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hospital, Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou City.
    Background: Some fordless-eyelid patients with moderate upper lid ptosis characterize in a higher eyebrow position which leads to an increased midfacial ratio. Apart from performing blepharoplasty to create dynamic folds, additional procedures such as folding aponeurosis of levator palpebrae superioris muscle were effective to revise the enlarged ratio of midface through lowering eyebrow, which gains good aesthetic results. However, the specific changes in the proportion of facial aesthetics and the importance of these change were serious lack in the literature as far as the authors know. Read More

    [Laser-assisted blepharoplasty].

    Updates on upper eyelid blepharoplasty.
    Indian J Ophthalmol 2017 Jul;65(7):551-558
    Department of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Oculofacial Aesthetic Services, Sri Sankaradeva Nethralaya, Guwahati, Assam, India.
    The human face is composed of small functional and cosmetic units, of which the eyes and periocular region constitute the main point of focus in routine face-to-face interactions. This dynamic region plays a pivotal role in the expression of mood, emotion, and character, thus making it the most relevant component of the facial esthetic and functional unit. Any change in the periocular unit leads to facial imbalance and functional disharmony, leading both the young and the elderly to seek consultation, thus making blepharoplasty the surgical procedure of choice for both cosmetic and functional amelioration.
