In this video-based CME activity, Julius W. Few, MD performs a midface rejuvenation which includes a lower blepharoplasty to dissect the redundant skin, a tear trough correction to eliminate the tired and aged appearance on the face, and lateral canthoplasties are performed because there is more than 6-8 millimeters lower lid distraction.
After viewing this course, the participant should be able to:
- Plan goals for the procedure from the patient's view point, as well as documenting during a physical exam the potential risks involved from performing blepharoplasty by considering the patient's medical history.
- Prepare a patient immediately prior to surgery, including identifying and measuring the shape, size and asymmetry.
- Minimize trauma to the orbital septum of the lower lid.
- Know when it is appropriate to correct tear trough.
- Perform proper suture techniques, in addition to setting the three points of fixation - two in the lateral malar region and one via the transconjunctival approach.
