Resumen

HERNANDEZ SANCHEZ, Yaima; ESTRADA AMADOR, Bárbara; ROJAS RONDON, Irene  y  RUIZ CONTRERA, Ever. Clinical outcomes of the eyebrow lift technique of transblepharoplasty. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2019, vol.32, n.4, e731.  Epub 15-Feb-2020. ISSN 0864-2176.

Objective:

To assess the surgical outcomes of the eyebrow lift technique of transblepharoplasty and the complications presented.

Methods:

A descriptive, retrospective, longitudinal study was carried out with 12 patients (24 eyelids) with eyebrow ptosis associated with upper eyelid dermatochalasis, from May to September 2018, in the Ocular Plastic Surgery office of Ramón Pando Ferrer Cuban Institute of Ophthalmology. Those who already had a previous surgery of the upper facial third were excluded.

Results:

83.3% of the patients were female. Regarding the age groups, the group of people over 62 years of age was more frequent. There was a predominance of the white race, accounting for 58.3%. In 60% of female cases (6 patients), dermatochalasis of the upper eyelid, associated with eyebrow ptosis, was moderate. Eyebrow ptosis was corrected in 18 eyelids, for 75%. 25% of complications were presented (3 patients).

Conclusions:

The eyebrow lift technique of transblepharoplasty achieves eyebrow correction in the greatest number of patients with a low percentage of complications, and constitutes a good surgical option for this type of eyelid condition.

Palabras clave : Dermatochalasis of the upper eyelid; eyebrow ptosis; transpalpebral brow elevation.
