BACKGROUND: As the ptotic brow drops below the supraorbital rim, it can exacerbate dermatochalasis by pushing the adjacent skin of the upper lid further down. AIM: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcomes associated with a combined pretrichial brow lift and upper lid blepharoplasty in patients with dermatochalasis and mild to moderate brow ptosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective case series of 46 patients with dermatochalasis and mild to moderate brow ptosis treated with a combined, bilateral pretrichial brow lift and upper lid blepharoplasty from January 2008 to December 2011...

REVIEW
Gregory H Branham
The goal of lower eyelid blepharoplasty is to rejuvenate the lower lid while maintaining a natural, unoperated appearance. Successful lower eyelid blepharoplasty depends on knowledge of the anatomy and surgical techniques, accurate preoperative analysis, and attention to detail. Common issues of the lower eyelid such as malar descent, tear trough deformity, pseudoherniated fat, lid laxity, and skin texture changes as well as dermatochalasis and festoons must be recognized. Specific techniques to address these include transcutaneous and transconjunctival approaches, fat excision, fat transposition, orbicularis suspension, lateral canthal tightening, malar suspension, and skin excision/resurfacing...

BACKGROUND: The upper eyelid of young people is characterized by a proper fullness and projection. Aging eyes show upper eyelid volume loss, symmetric or asymmetric hollowing with too much upper lid showing, dermatochalasis with skin excess. While in the past blepharoplasty surgery was the only approach used to improve eye appearance in the last years, hyaluronic acid (HA) filling of the upper eyelid area has been found very effective in reaching good eye rejuvenation and use of traditional surgical techniques can be limited...

PURPOSE: In Asian patients, lateral hooding in the aging upper eyelid is prominent and frequently seen. Removal of the redundant skin of this region during classic blepharoplasty tends to produce a resultant prolonged scar. Furthermore, as the height of the eyelid skin excision increases, suturing of the thick upper skin to the thin pretarsal skin can result in upper lid fullness. This study documents the combination of infrabrow skin excision and upper blepharoplasty to address lateral hooding in select patients of Asian ancestry...

BACKGROUND: It is commonly assumed that a progressive sagging of the eyebrow occurs with the facial aging process. Only a few studies have analyzed this modification, and the findings are disparate and inconclusive. This study, based on reproducible and validated data, aimed to quantify the modifications of eyebrow position that may occur with aging. Also analyzed were the effects of these eyebrow position changes on the upper eyelid and on frontal muscle activity. METHODS: The study included 95 Caucasian adults divided in three groups: 20 to 39, 40 to 59, and 60 to 79 years of age...

PURPOSE: To describe the use of a lid crease incision for upper eyelid margin rotation in cicatricial entropion combining internal traction on the anterior lamella, tarsotomy, and tarsal overlap without external sutures. METHODS: Surgical description: The main steps of the procedure consisted of exposure of the entire tarsal plate up to the eyelashes followed by tarsotomy through the conjunctiva. A double-armed 6.0 polyglactin suture was then passed through the distal tarsal fragment to the marginal section of the orbicularis oculi muscle...

UNLABELLED: The upper third of the face, composed of the forehead and the brow, is a critical aesthetic subunit. Brow ptosis is a common presenting complaint for patients seeking elective improvement of their facial appearance. Browlift surgery has a long history of technique evolution, with various reported methods and refinements. Since the introduction of the endoscopic brow lifting in the 1990s, it has become widely accepted as an approach to forehead rejuvenation. Endoscopy provides minimal incisions in well hidden areas, avoiding long, visible scars...

Life expectancy is increasing in most countries. With increasing age, many individuals may develop involutional ophthalmic diseases, such as eyelid aging. Dermatochalasis, ptosis, ectropion, and entropion are common disorders in middle-aged and older adults. This review outlines the pathophysiology and clinical management of these involutional eyelid disorders. Recently, a decrease in elastic fibers with ultrastructural abnormalities and an overexpression of elastin-degrading enzymes have been demonstrated in involutional ectropion and entropion...

Solitary trichoepithelioma of the eyelid is a very rare tumor, which needs to be differentiated from basaloid epithelioma and basal cell carcinoma. Diagnosis is based on clinical and histopathological examination. We present a case of an eyelid trichoepithelioma presenting as a long standing nodule with associated dermatochalasis. Although rare, this entity should be kept in the differential diagnosis of chronic, firm, nodular eyelid lesions.

REVIEW
Scott Shadfar, Stephen W Perkins
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. In this article, the authors explore the various approaches and techniques available for rejuvenation of the upper face, including the upper periorbital region...
