OBJECTIVES: A women's breast is a sex-specific and aesthetic bodily attribute. It is suggested that breast morphology signals maturity, health, and fecundity. The perception of a woman's attractiveness and age depends on various cues, such as breast size or areola pigmentation. Conducted in Poland and Papua, the current study investigated how breast attractiveness, and the further estimate of a woman's age based on her breast's appearance, is affected by the occurrence of breast ptosis (ie, sagginess, droopiness)...

BACKGROUND: To immediate reconstruct ptosis breasts, we used polyglactin (Vicryl; Ethicon Inc., Somerville, NJ, USA) mesh as an inferolateral sling. However, Vicryl mesh is absorbable and losing function as a supporting structure. We doubt about the stability of the blood supply to the inferior part of the flap when it is in direct contact with inner implant. In this study, we examine the complications and the safety of the skin flap of this absorbable mesh sling (AMS) procedure. METHODS: The outcomes of 80 cases were examined, and the 1-year safety record of 40 cases was assessed...

We describe a rare case of a 31-year old woman with bilateral ptosis due to localized amyloidosis. She referred a nine-year history of ptosis and surgical treatment with frontalis suspension three years previously. Following complete ophthalmological examination and evaluation of the ptosis we carried out tarsal and fornix biopsy, which revealed accumulation of a weakly eosinophilic amyloid positive substance. We performed surgical correction using the levator aponeurosis-Müller's muscle complex re-adaptation technique and amyloid substance debulking in all the palpebral layers in the left eye...

BACKGROUND: Silicone rod is a commonly used synthetic suspension material in frontalis suspension surgery to correct blepharoptosis. The most challenging problem and a decisive drawback of the use of silicone rod is a considerable rate of ptosis recurrence after surgery. We examined patients with recurred ptosis and assessed the physical and micromorphological properties of implanted silicone rods to determine the causative mechanisms of recurred ptosis after frontalis suspension using silicone rod...

BACKGROUND: Involutional blepharoptosis is the most common type of acquired blepharoptosis. The etiology is believed to be the degeneration of the levator aponeurosis, and levator superioris muscle function was believed to be normal. However, there are a few studies analyzing levator function (LF) in involutional blepharoptosis. Our study aimed to access the LF abnormality in involutional blepharoptosis and analyze the correlation between LF and ptosis severity in involutional blepharoptosis in Taiwan...

Lennert Van Putte, Steven D M Colpaert
BACKGROUND: Ptosis of the earlobe is a common consequence of ageing, defined as an unappealingly large free caudal segment of over 5 mm. It is therefore important to consider reduction as a complement to rhytidectomy in selected patients. Moreover, facelifting operations can result in disproportionate or poorly positioned earlobes. Current earlobe-reducing techniques can leave a scar on the free lateral edge causing notching or involve complex pattern excisions with limited resection capability and the risk of deformities...

A Wenger, H Piza-Katzer
Background In cases of blepharoptosis, the upper eyelid either cannot or can only be elevated insufficiently. The aetiology may be myogenic, aponeurotic, neurogenic, mechanical, or traumatic. The most common cause of congenital ptosis is myogenic, due to the improper development of the levator muscle. Methods Frontalis suspension operation as a technique of correction often uses silicone slings or fascia lata. On the basis of 3 cases, we present our method using palmaris longus tendon. Results In all 3 cases, intra- and postoperative courses were without adverse events and all cases are still relapse-free...

Both the Müller muscle-conjunctiva resection (MMCR) and levator advancement (LA) procedures can be used to manage ptosis in patients with good levator function. The aim of this article is to evaluate the efficacy and cosmetic outcomes of the two procedures. The clinical records of 29 consecutive eyelids of 26 patients undergoing MMCR and 30 eyelids of 23 patients undergoing LA were analysed. Eleven (42%) in the LA group and 9 (39%) in the MMCR group were male. The preoperative eyelid measurements were significantly different in the LA compared to the MMCR groups, in terms of palpebral aperture (PA) (6...
