Clin Plast Surg 2022 Apr;49(2):197-212

University of British Columbia and Vancouver Plastic Surgery Center, 777 West Broadway, Suite 1000, Vancouver, British Columbia V5Z4J7, Canada. Electronic address:

The upper lid-brow junction is a complex anatomic zone that undergoes many interconnected age-related changes. Although considerable effort has gone into defining the ideal female eye and brow, no such work has been done for the male. Typically, men develop forehead and glabellar lines in conjunction with either upper lid hooding, brow ptosis, or blepharoptosis, whereas some men develop hollowing of the upper lid sulcus.

Prelamination of the Radial Forearm Free Flap Using Free Full-Thickness Eyelid Skin Grafts: A New Approach for Intraoral Defect Reconstruction.

Ann Plast Surg 2022 Mar 9. Epub 2022 Mar 9.

From the Department for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Hannover Medical School, Hannover, Germany.

Abstract: Free flap transfer for reconstruction of intraoral defects is a common procedure in oral and maxillofacial surgery. For tumor-related defects, the radial forearm flap is widely used for soft tissue restoration. However, transfer of free skin grafts to the donor site region is often required for wound closure after free flap harvesting, resulting in esthetic disturbances due to shrinkage of the grafted skin, attendant scarring, or mismatches in skin texture or color.

Arcade Suture Upper Blepharoplasty Combined With the Forceps Technique.

Ann Plast Surg 2022 03;88(1s Suppl 1):S68-S72

From the Division of Plastic Surgery, Department of Surgery, Taipei Veterans General Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.

Background: Double-eyelid blepharoplasty is the most popular cosmetic surgery in Taiwan. The creation of a small palpebral fold along with reduction of eyelid fullness makes the eye look slightly larger, thereby leading to an appearance of youthfulness, alertness, and vitality. Herein, we propose a method of combining the techniques of arcade buried suture and forceps, which is designed to create a more physiologically natural double eyelid. Read More

Patient-reported aesthetic outcomes of upper blepharoplasty: a randomized controlled trial comparing two surgical techniques.

Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2022 Feb 23. Epub 2022 Feb 23.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, University of Groningen and University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG), Groningen, The Netherlands.

It is not yet established whether additional orbicularis oculi muscle excision leads to better patient-reported aesthetic outcomes (PRO) compared to a skin-only resection blepharoplasty. A double-blind randomized controlled trial of upper blepharoplasty, with or without muscle excision, was performed on 54 White European patients who assessed the procedure via PRO. FACE-Q questionnaires covering eyes in general, upper eyelids, forehead and eyebrows, overall face, age appearance appraisal, age appraisal, social functioning, satisfaction with the outcome, and adverse effects were completed preoperatively and at 6 and 12 months after upper blepharoplasty.

The extended submuscular fibroadipose tissue (SMFAT) resection and ladder suture technique for patients with a puffy SMFAT upper eyelid.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2022 Jan 31. Epub 2022 Jan 31.

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

Background: In East Asians, a common method to ameliorate puffy eyelids is to resect the excess orbital fat and the orbicularis. However, in some patients, a satisfactory improvement cannot be achieved because of the thick submuscular fibroadipose tissue (SMFAT) and minimal orbital fat. The SMFAT lies between the orbicularis and the orbital septum and can also be found in the pretarsal area. Read More

Orbicularis-levator-tarsus fixation suturing in buried suture double-eyelid blepharoplasty.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2022 03 14;75(3):1224-1229. Epub 2021 Nov 14.

Plastic Surgery Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College, Beijing, 100141 China.

Background: In buried suture methods, the levator aponeurosis is fixed to the subcutaneous tissue in the pretarsal region using a suture. However, loosening of the suture occurs frequently and causes regression or disappearance of the double-eyelid folds. To avoid potential loosening of the suture after surgery, we modified the horizontal suture technique commonly used in buried suture double-eyelid blepharoplasty. Read More
