Brow Ptosis after Upper Blepharoplasty: Findings in 70 Patients

Abstract:   (3141 Views)


Brow ptosis is a potential complication after upper eyelid blepharoplasty. The aim of this study was to analyze the effect of upper blepharoplasty on eyebrow position.


In this Between April 2011 and March 2013, eighty three patients (166 eyes with mean age of 49.7 years) underwent upper eyelid blepharoplasty. The patients were assessed using pre- and post-operatively digital photographs, in the primary position of the eye while the distance between the upper lid margin and the brow were measured before surgery. The postoperative degree of brow ptosis was evaluated as being mild (<2 mm), moderate (2-4 mm), and marked (>4 mm).


The postoperative brow position was unchanged in 46 cases (65.8%), and brow depression was noted in 24 cases ( 34.2%), including 7 males (58.3%) , and 17 females (29.3%).


Our study shows that postoperative brow position should be explained to patients before surgery, particularly in male and senile patients as concomitant brow lift or internal brow fixation through the blepharoplasty incision can help to stabilize the eyebrow in the proper position and to prevent this complication.
