Periorbital Filling With The MD Codes™ Algorithm: A Narrative Review and a Practical Guide.

J Cosmet Dermatol 2021 Nov 7;20(11):3398-3406. Epub 2021 Oct 7.

Department of Medicine, Division of Dermatology, Mato Grosso State University, Cáceres, Mato Grosso, Brazil.

Introduction: The hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are employed to bring balance and facial harmony, improving the proportions and asymmetries of the structures, besides acting to reverse the signs of facial aging. The periorbital region is one of the first to show the signs of aging with periocular wrinkles, deepening of the nasojugal and palpebromalar folds, prolapse of the fat bags, excess palpebral skin, ptosis of the eyelashes, disappearance of the upper eyelid crease due to excess skin and hollowing of the upper eyelid.

Aims: To describe the lines and grooves of the periorbital region and present a practical guide to the MD CODES™ algorithm for filling this region based on a narrative review of the literature. Read More

Detection of Baseline Emotion in Brow Lift Patients Using Artificial Intelligence.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2021 12 27;45(6):2742-2748. Epub 2021 Sep 27.

Plastic Surgery Division, Department of Surgery, Plastic Surgery Resident PGY4, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, 55905, USA.

Background: The widespread popularity of browlifts and blepharoplasties speaks directly to the importance that patients place on the periorbital region of the face. In literature, most esthetic outcomes are based on instinctive analysis of the esthetic surgeon, rather than on patient assessments, public opinions, or other objective means. We employed an artificial intelligence system to objectively measure the impact of brow lifts and associated rejuvenation procedures on the appearance of emotion while the patient is in repose.

My Evolution with Endoscopic Brow-Lift Surgery.

Facial Plast Surg Clin North Am 2021 May 24;29(2):163-178. Epub 2021 Apr 24.

University of Utah School of Medicine, 5445 South Highland Drive, Salt Lake City, UT 84117, USA.

The endoscopic approach for forehead rejuvenation and brow lift has many advantages. It provided excellent exposure for release of periorbital soft tissues combined with endoscopic magnification, shorter scars, and reduced risk of alopecia and scalp sensory changes compared with the traditional open coronal brow lift. The technique has improved over the last 15 years with better fixation devices, a better understanding of the longevity, and decreased complications of the procedure. Read More

Investigating Long-Term Brow Stabilization by Endotine-Assisted Endoscopic Brow Lift with Concomitant Upper Lid Blepharoplasty.

Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 2021 Oct 25;130(10):1139-1147. Epub 2021 Feb 25.

Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Madigan Army Medical Center, Tacoma, WA, USA.

Objective: To determine whether Endotine-assisted endoscopic brow lift with concomitant upper lid blepharoplasty provides long-term brow elevation.

Preoperative Use of Neuromodulators to Optimize Surgical Outcomes in Upper Blepharoplasty and Brow Lift.

Aesthet Surg J 2018 Aug;38(9):941-948

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.

Periorbital rejuvenation requires a careful understanding of the interplay between the eyelids, brow, forehead, and midface. Reversing periorbital signs of aging requires a correction of volume loss, soft tissue ptosis, and skin changes. Many surgical and nonsurgical techniques exist to treat the aging periorbital region; however, careful consideration of the patient's complaints and existing anatomy is critical to achieving a safe and esthetically pleasing outcome.

Facial Plast Surg Clin North Am 2015 May 7;23(2):167-83. Epub 2015 Mar 7.

Meridian Plastic Surgeons, 170 West 106th Street, Indianapolis, IN 46290, USA; Department of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery, Indiana University School of Medicine, 705 Riley Hospital Drive, RI0860, Indianapolis, IN 46202-5230, USA.

Surgical management of the aging upper face has taken on a critical role in total facial rejuvenation, with a variety of techniques available. The hallmarks of the aging upper third of the face and periorbital region most commonly manifest as rhytids, brow descent, prolapse of periorbital fat, dermatochalasis, and volume loss and hollowing. The surrounding structures should be assessed individually and their relationships carefully analyzed to guide selection of the appropriate treatment. Read More

Comparison of the transpalpebral and endoscopic approaches in resection of the corrugator supercilii muscle.

Aesthet Surg J 2012 Feb;32(2):151-6

University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI, USA.

Background: Corrugator resection is an integral part of periorbital rejuvenation and can be accomplished through the open coronal, endoscopic, or transpalpebral technique. While most authors concur about the importance of corrugator resection during brow lift surgery, considerable debate remains regarding the efficacy and technical ease of muscle resection with these approaches.

Objectives: The authors conducted a cadaver study to compare the completeness of resection of the corrugator muscle with the transpalpebral and endoscopic techniques. Read More

Management of the midface during facial rejuvenation.

Semin Plast Surg 2009 Nov;23(4):274-82

Department of Plastic Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas.

The endoscopic midface lift procedure has evolved from experience with postreduction soft tissue repair after facial fracture fixation. The procedure elevates and repositions midface soft tissue, which descends with facial aging; as well, it can correct periorbital congenital abnormalities, such as exorbitism and lateral canthal displacement. The procedure has been refined by the senior author to employ a temporal endoscopic approach alleviating the need for a lower eyelid incision. Read More

Rejuvenation of the periorbital complex with autologous fat transfer: current therapy.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2008 Aug;66(8):1686-93

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, University of Pittsburgh, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

Purpose: This article examines the pathophysiology of periorbital aging and details a technique, autologous fat transfer, to restore a youthful appearance to the periorbital complex. The use of photographs taken of patients in their late teens or early 20s shows that the main changes of periorbital aging are consistent with volume loss more so than gravitational changes. This article reflects on the shortcomings of currently accepted surgical approaches to the rejuvenation of the periorbital region. Read More
