abstract

  • Silicone rod frontalis suspension surgery increases the eyelid height in complicated blepharoptosis patients with minimal eyelid excursion. Patients and physicians concur closely regarding satisfaction; masked assessment of photographic outcome parameters by observers yields marginal agreement. Because most patients undergoing this procedure have a narrow window for appropriate postoperative eyelid height, a relatively high proportion of patients required revision. Silicone rod frontalis suspension surgery is chosen in these challenging cases for the ease of adjustment.
