Rejuvenation of the Lower Lid and Periocular Area from Above
03 June 2010 (online)
Rejuvenation of the periocular region, specifically the lower eyelid region, can be performed with a variety of methods. One finding of the aging lower eyelid region is the “Y-deformity.” Elevation of the midface is a powerful tool that can significantly improve the appearance of the lower eyelid. This article addresses the elevation of the midface through two approaches: the meloplication and the subperiosteal midface-lift. In addition to midface elevation, a short discussion on canthopexy is included. Although the lower eyelid can be addressed in a variety of ways, rejuvenation of the periocular region from above should be considered in all patients, as these approaches yield good results.
