Lower Eyelid and Midface Aesthetics and Rejuvenation: Views from Four Disciplines

Guy G Massry, MD

The midface and lower eyelids act as an aesthetic unit. Over the past decades, our understanding of the aging process of this region has dramatically changed. Where as aggressive lower blepharoplasty, surgical midface lifts, and fillers in the etched laugh lines were the norm just less than 5 years ago, we now understand that there is more complexity of the management of this area. As a result, there has been an accelerated development and refinement of surgical and nonsurgical rejuvenative procedures founded on the contributions of specialists from various disciplines, such as plastic surgery, facial plastic surgery, oculoplastic surgery, and dermatology. As such, a comprehensive reference on cosmetic interventions tailor to enhance the appearance of midface and lower eyelids can only be complete with a multidisciplinary approach constructed with contributions from each of these core specialties. In this Clinics in Plastic Surgery, it was decided to focus on a multispecialty approach by first publishing, “Brow and Upper Eyelid Surgery: Multidisciplinary Insights” 2 years ago. This issue is the follow-up volume dedicated to the lower lids and midface with a similar format and authorship.
