Abstract
An 18-month experience with an endoscopically-assisted closed technique of modified transblepharoplasty lower Ed and midface rejuvenation is presented . In the modified approach, preseptal dissection in the body of the lower l id is eliminated in order to decrease the incidence of septal scarring and lower lid retraction. The technique also leaves intact the connection betwe en the orbicularis and septum, resulting in tightening of the septum and be tter support of lid with redraping of the muscle. By providing more secure support of the lower lid and lateral canthus, the need for direct canthal m anipulation has been significantly reduced.
