      Abstract

      The study aimed to evaluate a new method of periorbital rejuvenation in which periorbital muscle manipulation is utilised. Patients (n = 82) who underwent eyebrow lifting surgery in Yichang Central People's Hospital were retrospectively included. All the patients had drooping eyebrows and lateral hooding of the upper eyelids combined with a flat or depressed outer-upper side of the eyebrow arch. Data were collected on the position of the eyebrow relative to the eye before and after surgery and the postoperative satisfaction of patients. The study included 43 patients in the traditional group and 39 patients in the combined group. The postoperative results showed that the combined approach group had more aesthetically pleasing mean (SD) ratio of the position of eyebrows relative to eyes (1.6 ± 0.2 vs 1.7 ± 0.2, p = 0.021). Furthermore, the satisfaction of the patients in the combined group was significantly higher than that of the traditional group (37/39 vs 34/43, p = 0.036). The periorbital rejuvenation through the sub-brow incision, combined with supraorbital orbicularis muscle folding had more aesthetically pleasing ratio of the position of eyebrows relative to eyes and the satisfaction of the patients in the combined group was significantly higher.
