Facial Plast Surg 2022 Jun 23. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City, United States.

Brow ptosis is an abnormal descent of the eyebrow resulting in a displeased appearance and/or functional deficit. While most cases of brow ptosis do not result in a functional impairment, functional brow surgery is generally reserved for individuals with severe brow asymmetry or visual field deficit related to excess soft tissue pushing downwards on the eyelid. A combination of both intrinsic and extrinsic anatomic factors contributes to an unfavorable brow shape, contour, and position. Read More

An Algorithm for Correction of the Aging Upper Face.

Clin Plast Surg 2022 Jul;49(3):415-420

Case Western Reserve School of Medicine.

As the approach to the upper face has evolved in recent years, so has the focus of aesthetic brow procedures. Brow position was the primary focus early in the late twentieth century, with the coronal brow lift the primary means of surgical correction.

Direct Browlift.

Clin Plast Surg 2022 Jul;49(3):409-414

Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cole Eye Institute, 9500 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44195, USA.

Direct browlifting comprises various techniques to lift the brows using incisions on or around the brows. The classic direct browlift involves removing an ellipse of skin and subcutaneous tissue within or just above the brow cilia. However, the technique can be modified to address only lateral brow ptosis, to place the incision in the midforehead or the eyelid crease, and to place the incisions in different areas during bilateral surgery to attempt to improve symmetry.

Noninvasive Correction of the Aging Forehead.

Clin Plast Surg 2022 Jul;49(3):399-407

Department of Dermatology, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, 2049 East 100th Street, Cleveland, OH 44195, USA.

Aging of the face is a continuous and dynamic process that occurs due to changes in layers including skin, muscle, fat, and bone. There is an increasing patient preference toward nonsurgical techniques and procedures that require minimal downtime in all aspects of cosmetic surgery. The mainstay of treatment involves the administration of injectable fillers for temple volumization, eyebrow reshaping and forehead contouring, and neuromodulation to reduce the appearance of dynamic rhytids.

Division of Plastic Surgery, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Grotting Plastic Surgery, One Inverness Center Parkway, Suite 100, Birmingham, AL 35242, USA. Electronic address:

Subcutaneous undermining for brow lifting is not a new technique, but the gliding brow lift is evolutionary in the sense that it can be done through 1 or 2 tiny incisions and the brow shape maintained with transcutaneous running sutures (the hemostatic net). Undermining over the frontalis muscle and galea is performed using blunt dissectors and the lifting is done with superior traction, holding the brow in the desired shape with the hemostatic net.

Face detection from patterns of shading and shadows: The role of overhead illumination in generating the familiar appearance of the human face.

Cognition 2022 Aug 20;225:105172. Epub 2022 May 20.

School of Psychology, UNSW Sydney, New South Wales 2052, Australia.

Face detection in human vision relies on a stereotypical pattern of visual features common to different faces. How are these visual features generated in the environment? Here we investigate how characteristic patterns of shading and shadows that occur across the face act as a cue for face detection. We use 3D rendering to isolate facial shading under simulated lighting conditions, comparing the broad patterns of contrast that occur across the face when light arrives from different angles.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2022 05 26;149(5):901e-904e. Epub 2022 Apr 26.

From the Centro Hospitalar Universitário do Porto, Instituto de Ciências Biomédias Abel Salazar, Universidade do Porto, Hospital da Luz Arrábida; and Plastic Surgery Division, Faculty of Medicine, University of São Paulo.

Summary: For V-shaped nasal bones, the authors consider that ostectomy of the dorsal keystone area can be avoided, and this has led to the development of a new preservation technique: the spare roof technique B (or Ferreira-Ishida technique), where the bony cap is preserved. It includes six main steps, as follows. Step 1, draw on the surface of the skin the desired dorsal brow-tip aesthetic lines, the pyriform aperture, the rhinion, and the amount of triangular bone that has to be taken out to allow pushing-down the bony cap, and the transversal line in the beginning of the nasal hump.

Do the newly proposed realignment targets for C2 and T1 slope bridge the gap between radiographic and clinical success in corrective surgery for adult cervical deformity?

J Neurosurg Spine 2022 Apr 15:1-8. Epub 2022 Apr 15.

1Departments of Orthopaedic and Neurologic Surgery, NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital, New York, New York.

Objective: Surgical correction of cervical deformity (CD) has been associated with superior alignment and functional outcomes. It has not yet been determined whether baseline or postoperative T1 slope (T1S) and C2 slope (C2S) correlate with health-related quality-of-life (HRQoL) metrics and radiographic complications, such as distal junctional kyphosis (DJK) and distal junctional failure (DJF). The objective of this study was to determine the impact of T1S and C2S deformity severity on HRQoL metrics and DJF development in patients with CD who underwent a cervical fusion procedure.
