Brow and Upper Lid Aesthetics and Rejuvenation: Views from Four Disciplines

Guy G. Massry MD

Aesthetic surgery of the eyelids and periorbita is a unique component of plastic surgery. This is because the development and refinement of surgical and nonsurgical rejuvenative procedures inherent to this area of the face are founded on the contributions of specialists from various disciplines-primarily plastic surgery, facial plastic surgery, oculoplastic surgery, and dermatology. As such, a comprehensive reference on cosmetic interventions tailored to enhance the appearance of the eyelids and adjacent structures can only be complete with a multidisciplinary approach constructed with contributions from each of these core specialties. From this thinking, this volume of Clinics in Plastic Surgery, “Brow and Upper Eyelid Surgery: Multidisciplinary Insights,” was born. A second volume dedicated to the lower lids and midface with a similar format is entitled ‘Lower Lid and Midface: Multispecialty Approach.’

The forehead/eyebrows and upper lids act as an aesthetic unit. They immediately interact to convey expression, mood, demeanor, and thought. In addition, their function is critical to protecting the eyes and maintaining our most important sense—vision. Clearly, an in-depth understanding of the form and function of these dynamic structures is essential for all practitioners involved in their cosmetic enhancement. In this text we sought out the expertise of leaders in each of the core 4 specialties mentioned above so that we could present a truly comprehensive, diverse, and multidisciplinary view of aesthetic forehead/eyebrow lifting, upper blepharoplasty, and pertinent associated noninvasive cosmetic refinements.
