Abstract

Periocular reconstruction is limited to the upper lid, lower lid, and brow. Although many of the same principles apply as in other facial rejuvenation procedures, special techniques are involved frequently using microsurgical procedures. Although the majority of oculoplastic procedures are done for cosmetic purposes, occasionally patients with extreme distortion in periorbital anatomy may benefit from this procedure. These include patients with profound ptosis and severe cases of lower lid distortion who have visual compromise.
