Purpose: To introduce an easy and effective approach for internal fixation of repositioned fat pedicles in transconjunctival lower eyelid blepharoplasty. Methods: Thirty-six consecutive patients underwent fat repositioning transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty from August 2016 to January 2018. After release of the orbicularis oculi muscle and exposure of the intraorbital fat pedicles, a supraperiosteal pocket was dissected. A 6-0 nylon suture was passed through the shaft of a hypodermic needle from the sharp tip, then the hypodermic needle was pierced through the cheek skin about 5 to 8 mm below the orbital rim into ...
Conclusion: The four-step technique is a simple, flexible, and effective method for creating infold or outfold double-eyelid creases according to individual patient requirements and should be considered a routine method for patients who request double eyelids. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic, IV.
Summary: Volume restoration with autologous fat augmentation has become a key technique in facial rejuvenation. It is highly versatile and useful as an independent operation or as an adjunct to rhytidectomy and blepharoplasty. The goal of this article and the accompanying videos is to provide a detailed step-by-step guide to achieving predictable and optimized surgical results.
This article provides a concise overview of available literature and as such no meta-analysis was done due to the narrowed scope of the involved studies and the variety in surgical approaches and techniques of lower lid blepharoplasty.
