Peripheral branches of the facial nerve, the marginal mandibularis in particular, are vulnerable to injury during facial surgery, i.e., submandibular gland surgery, flap development in radical neck dissection, liposuction of the jowl area, percutaneous insertion of a screw for mandibular plating, especially at the angle of the mandible, and elevation of the(More)
Incision techniques in the past focused on fixing the pretarsal skin to either the tarsal plate or to the levator aponeurosis. High relapse rate remains one of the main concerns in double-eyelid surgery. To address these issues, the author developed a pretarsal orbicularis oculi muscle-levator aponeurosis fixation technique. This technique results in better(More)

The Park Z-epicanthoplasty differs from the previously described procedures by(More)
