"Management of the upper face can be challenging. The idea for this text came as a response to teaching the finer points of eyelid ptosis management and upper facial rejuvenation to our residents and fellows of ophthalmology, facial plastic surgery, plastic surgery, and oral maxillofacial surgery. In the course of our clinical practice, we find that surgeons performing blepharoplasty and browelevating procedures frequently miss upper eyelid ptosis and/or brow malposition. We have recruited world-class expert oculofacial plastic surgeons to break down the steps in comprehensive evaluation and management of upper facial changes: eyelid ptosis, dermatochalasis, and eyebrow ptosis. In the ensuing chapters, we examine the clinical assessment of patients who present with upper eyelid and eyebrow concerns and provide a useful treatment protocol to address these issues. The surgical management chapters provide a step-by-step approach for the beginning surgeon with finer tips embedded for the more nuanced and advanced surgeon. We designed this text to enable providers to offer optimal treatment to all patients who present with upper facial concerns.
