BACKGROUND: We present a case of orbital compartment syndrome (OCS) leading to monocular irreversible blindness following a pterional craniotomy for clipping of an anterior communicating artery (ACoA) aneurysm. OCS is an uncommon but vision-threatening entity requiring urgent decompression to reduce the risk of permanent visual loss. Iatrogenic orbital roof defects are a common finding following pterional craniotomies. However, complications related to these defects are rarely reported...

INTRODUCTION: The aesthetic manifestations of the aging process in the cheekbone, cheek and infraorbital areas are especially concerning for patients, so rejuvenating interventions in these areas are most in demand. OBJECTIVE: To introduce the experience of our clinic for aesthetic manipulation using Aptos (anti-ptosis) thread lifting methods in the midface area. METHODS: Among the surgical interventions that we used were Aptos thread lifting methods both in combination with lower blepharoplasty, and without it...

OBJECTIVES: Transplant patients, like the nontransplant population, can have surgical interventions for body shape disorders. Studies on aesthetic surgeries in transplant patients are scarce. Our aim was to share our experiences with various aesthetic procedures in solid-organ transplant recipients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Six (5 female, 1 male) transplant patients who received surgical corrections of the aging face, ptosis and lipodystrophy of the breast, and abdomen at the Baskent University Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Department between 2010 and 2017 were included...

BACKGROUND: Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is among the most frequent oculoplastic surgical procedures. It is often performed as one of the first esthetic surgical interventions by surgeons of various disciplines. While there is a high probability of happy and satisfied patients postoperatively, there are important potential surgical complications that should be prevented. This requires a careful preoperative, perioperative and postoperative approach. OBJECTIVE: This synopsis presents the basic considerations concerning upper eyelid blepharoplasty to serve as practical surgical guidelines...

BACKGROUND: Photography plays a pivotal role in patient education, photo-documentation, preoperative planning and postsurgical evaluation in plastic surgeries. It has long been serving as a bridge that facilitated communication not only between patients and doctors, but also among plastic surgeons from different countries. Although several basic principles and photographic methods have been proposed, there is no internationally accepted photography that could provide both static and dynamic information in blepharoplasty...

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...

Blepharoplasty is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgical procedures. To date it remains the most powerful method of periorbital rejuvenation when compared to other non-surgical modalities, especially in the aging face. Despite that, the procedure has its shortcomings that include a steep learning curve, prolonged recovery and potential for appearance and life-changing complications. Attaining successful outcomes rely on solid understanding of facial topography, patient and technique selection, and, when appropriate, following a conservative approach...

Brown syndrome is characterised by impaired supraduction worse in adduction due to a restricted superior oblique tendon passing through the trochlea. A few reports have previously described Brown syndrome after upper eyelid surgery, including blepharoplasty and ptosis repair. The authors describe two additional cases of Brown syndrome following ptosis repair. The first case is a 65-year-old woman with new-onset vertical binocular diplopia following bilateral levator advancement surgery. Ocular motility examination demonstrated moderate impairment of elevation in adduction...

The purpose of the current study was to analyze brow and ear position, and examine the relationship between these structures in patients presenting for blepharoplasty evaluation. A retrospective chart review was performed, which included all patients presenting to one oculoplastic physician for a blepharoplasty evaluation from November, 2012 to March, 2014. The prevalence of brow ptosis and brow and ear asymmetry was calculated; the proportional distribution was determined, and chi-square analysis and the z-test of proportions were used to calculate the significance...

PURPOSE: Change in eyelid position after upper blepharoplasty is an important factor that can affect postoperative patient satisfaction. However, no one has investigated eyelid changes during follow-up for upper eyelid surgery. Thus, the purpose of this study was to investigate position changes in the upper and lower eyelids during the follow-up period after upper blepharoplasty in Korean. METHODS: The authors retrospectively reviewed the clinical records of patients who underwent upper blepharoplasty for uncomplicated upper eyelid dermatochalasis...

Thick skin presents a unique set of challenges within the realm of facial plastic surgery, and addressing the lower lid complex is no exception. There are several procedures for addressing the lower lids, the first and foremost being lower lid blepharoplasty. However, the remaining procedures combined with surgical techniques have exclusive implications in thick skin. Understanding the anatomy and various techniques that can be applied to thick skin can help achieve aesthetically more pleasing results in comparison to those of thin skin...

While many of the basic tenants of upper lid blepharoplasty remain constant regardless of skin type, the thick-skinned eyelid patient requires special consideration. The brow may be naturally lower in the thick-skinned patient. These patients are more prone to having the brow pulled downward while attempting to remove redundant skin. There may also be more fat in the medial and central compartments. There may be fat in a lateral compartment overlying the lacrimal gland. Patient's expectations for a deep lid sulcus and complete excision of redundant skin may not be possible...
