Combination technique effectively corrected lower eyelid retraction

Closed canthal suspension combined with true lower eyelid retractor recession safely and effectively corrected lower eyelid retraction in patients with reduced orbicularis strength, according to recent study results.To evaluate the technique, researchers retrospectively reviewed 29 patients who underwent minimally invasive, orbicularis-sparing (MIOS) lower eyelid recession from Jan. 1, 2010, to Oct. 1, 2012, at an ophthalmic plastic surgical practice. The patients (mean age, 52 years; 18 women) had reduced orbicularis strength and lower eyelid retraction attributed to eyelid paresis stemming from facial nerve disease (n=11), blepharoplasty trauma (n=13), involution change (Read more...)
