Disease relevance of Blepharoplasty


High impact information on Blepharoplasty


Biological context of Blepharoplasty


Associations of Blepharoplasty with chemical compounds

  • Atypical mycobacterial infection following blepharoplasty and full-face skin resurfacing with CO2 laser [8].
  • Treatment of eyebrow ptosis to enhance the cosmetic effect from blepharoplasty is commonly done with a forehead lift using a coronal incision approach [9].
  • Clinical applications primarily include skin closure (blepharoplasty incisions, etc.). In a recent study, we demonstrated that Histoacryl elicits minimal histotoxicity when used to glue bone grafts to rabbit-ear cartilage [10].
  • CONCLUSION: The injection of phosphatidylcholine (250 mg/5 ml) into the fat pads is a simple office procedure that may postpone or even substitute for lower eyelid blepharoplasty [11].
  • Inactivation of the orbicularis oculi muscle by chemodenervation with botulinum toxin type A (Botox, Allergan, Inc., Irvine, Calif.) as a sole procedure or in conjunction with blepharoplasty has proved to be a reliable method to improve the appearance of the periocular area [12].
