Asian Blepharoplasty – An Overview

  pages={58 - 61}
Asian blepharoplasty has evolved over the years as greater understanding of the differences between the Asian and Caucasian eyelid anatomy has led to the development of modified techniques for upper lid blepharoplasty. The aim of Asian upper blepharoplasty is to create a pleasing and permanent upper lid crease. This article reviews the differences in the anatomy and the various techniques currently employed.

Asian Upper Blepharoplasty in Women: A Comprehensive Approach for a Natural and Aesthetically Pleasing Outcome.

The comprehensive approach to Asian upper blepharoplasty can be used for Asian women with a natural and aesthetically pleasing outcome and low revision rates.

Soft-Set Serpentine Eyelid Crease Formation

A partially open technique that achieves a soft, natural eyelid crease by recreating the normal anatomic attachments without a deeper dissection between the levator aponeurosis and the anterior lamella is presented.

Advanced Single-Stage Eyelid Reconstruction: Anatomy and Techniques

This work reviews eyelid anatomy and reconstructive techniques from an oculoplastic surgery perspective and concludes that excellent cosmetic and functional results can be achieved with appropriate technique.

Comparing the Eyes Depicted in Japanese Portraits of Beautiful Women: The Meiji and Modern Periods

The results of the study support the notion that Westernization contributed to bringing about changes in the Japanese standards of beautiful eyes in the context of bijin-ga, but the fact that the changeover has not occurred in all the categories in question does not indicate that the Occidental characteristics came to be emulated in their entirety.

Revisiting Upper Eyelid Anatomy: Introduction of the Septal Extension

A septal extension to the ciliary margin of the upper eyelid is established that can induce lid elevation, with potential postoperative lid retraction and may help to explain the increased rate of recurrence in ptosis repairs that incorporate plication techniques.

Adipose Compartments of the Upper Eyelid: Anatomy Applied to Blepharoplasty

Surgical and experimental findings put this element as a lateral physiological extension of the preaponeurotic fat that can anteriorly protrude under the inferior border of the lacrimal gland toward the orbital septum.

Oriental eyelids. An anatomic study.

Dissection of the eyelids and sagittal sections of the orbital blocks identified the anatomic features of the oriental eyelids responsible for their unique appearance. The basic distinction involves

The Asian upper eyelid: an anatomical study with comparison to the Caucasian eyelid.

Structural differences relating to increased fat in the Asian upper eyelid include the presence of a pretarsal fat pad and a moderate fat increase in the double Asian eyelid.

Eyelid anatomy revisited. Dynamic high-resolution magnetic resonance images of Whitnall's ligament and upper eyelid structures with the use of a surface coil.

A new radiofrequency surface coil and complementary software in eyelid magnetic resonance imaging allows visualization of the eyelid structures in submillimeter resolution, providing detailed delineation of such structures as the orbital septum, levator aponeurosis, Müller's muscle, and orbital septa.

An anatomical study of the junction of the orbital septum and the levator aponeurosis in Orientals.

It is reconfirmed Whitnall's original description that the levator sheath thickens to form the superior transverse ligament runs continuously inferiorly anterior to the levATOR aponeurosis and forms the inner layer of the orbital septum.

An anatomical structure which results in puffiness of the upper eyelid and a narrow palpebral fissure in the Mongoloid eye.

The typical Mongoloid eye differs from the Occidental one in puffiness of the upper eyelid and narrowness of the palpebral fissure. We surmised that an anatomical structure might exist in the
