Lateral Hooding of the Brow Revisited: Reverse Brow Lifting Versus the ROOF Lift.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2020 04 4;44(2):630-632. Epub 2020 Feb 4.

Velthuis Kliniek, K.P. van der Mandelelaan 10, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

We read with great interest the article titled "Anatomical Study and Clinical Observation of Retro-orbicularis Oculi Fat (ROOF)" by Xian Wang and Haiping Wang. Our aim with this comment is to contribute to a more precise nomenclature of any correction of lateral hooding of the brow. We believe both a ROOF lift and reverse browpexy or transblepharoplasty browpexy are not just two different techniques for the same purpose, they are also techniques based on two different concepts.

Triple-layer midface lifting: long-term follow-up of an effective approach to aesthetic surgery of the lower eyelid and the midface.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2014 Aug 18;38(4):632-40. Epub 2014 Jun 18.

Bergman Clinics, Private Clinic, Binckhorstlaan 147, The Hague, The Netherlands,

Background: It is becoming more and more accepted that better aesthetic results can be obtained when the lower eyelid is considered as part of the midface when contemplating surgical rejuvenation. Descent of the orbicularis muscle and midface tissue causes malar bags, loss of volume over the tear-trough, apparent vertical lengthening of the lower eyelid, and an accentuation of the orbit-cheek junction.

Methods: We describe a triple-layer technique that effectively corrects these problems, performed under local anesthesia and via a standard subciliary incision, to separately reposition the postseptal fat, suborbicularis oculi fat, and the musculocutaneous layer of skin and orbicularis oculi.

A novel, multistep, combination facial rejuvenation procedure for treatment of the whole face with incobotulinumtoxinA, and two dermal fillers- calcium hydroxylapatite and a monophasic, polydensified hyaluronic acid filler.

J Drugs Dermatol 2013 Sep;12(9):978-84

Facial aging is a three-dimensional process, and facial rejuvenation procedures intended to reverse the effects of aging need to address this by combining products that relax hyperkinetic musculature, volumize/fill, and recontour/lift the whole face. In line with the desire of patients to achieve an overall youthful facial appearance, we report for the first time three cases where patients have been successfully treated across the whole face with a novel, three-step approach, layering incobotulinumtoxinA and two dermal fillers (calcium hydroxylapatite and a monophasic hyaluronic acid filler with CPM Technology) injected at three separate treatment visits. The results suggest that this layering approach based on an understanding of the underlying causes of facial aging, where different products are used in combination to treat the entire face, can enable patients to achieve the desired outcome of a return to the characteristics of a more youthful face.

An analysis of unsolved problems of face-lift procedures.

Donald A Hudson

Ann Plast Surg 2010 Aug;65(2):266-9

Renaissance Clinic, Cape Town, South Africa.

The face-lift/rhytidectomy, considered a premier surgical procedure in the specialty, is designed to reverse the effects of aging on the face. Yet our understanding of aging is incomplete, for example, only recently has it been recognized that there are different fat compartments in the face: how aging affects these different compartments is not known. Some surgeons consider the baggy lower eyelid to be due to excess fat and remove the fat. Read More

[Mini-invasive surgical procedure to reverse the aging process].

Cir Cir 2009 Mar-Apr;77(2):157-63

Hospital Angeles de las Lomas, Estado de México, México.

Reduction of the bony structure of the face is the main reason for flabbiness and drooping of the facial soft tissues. Because we do not currently have recourse to restore the lost bony volume, a good possibility is to reestablish an optimal relationship between the soft tissues and the present bony volume. Based on this principle, we have developed the procedure of mini-invasive subperiosteal facial restoration. Read More

Preliminary evaluation of a fast-absorbing multipoint fixation device.

Aesthet Surg J 2008 Sep-Oct;28(5):584-8

Stanford University Medical Center, Palo Alto, CA, USA.

Background: Since the Endotine forehead fixation device (Coapt Systems, Palo Alto, CA) was introduced in 2003, a small percentage of surgeons and patients have complained of persistent palpability and sensitivity related to its 12- to 15-month absorption time. Therefore, a refinement of the original design, the Ultratine (Coapt Systems), consisting of a polymer blend altered for faster absorption and biodegradability, was introduced in 2006.

Objective: The authors report early results of fixation using the Ultratine with respect to permanence of elevation and the duration of visibility, palpability, and sensitivity of the implant. Read More
