The eyelid crease is a physiological portal to the upper eyelid. This is an enhanced digital book focusing on the upper eyelid's unique position among cosmetic plastic surgery, describing what is involved in double eyelid surgery, a common procedure available for Asians who desire to make their upper lids look less hooded by adding a natural eyelid crease.
It offers general and advanced concepts, the Author's current understanding of the eyelid crease, why it is important to understand its function and susceptibility, and the pros and cons of various procedures.
A comprehensive collections of surgical illustrations and before-and-after photos are offered for primary(first-time) cases as well as revision touchups. Several video clips are included.
The writing style is more targeted to general educated readership (than my other published medical textbooks in eye plastic surgery), such that anyone that is curious about the topic can read and follow the illustrations; seven of the 23 chapters are aimed at advanced level eye surgeons and physicians, plastic surgeons, and facial plastic surgeons.
The concepts and techniques described here for double eyelid procedures is universally applicable to anyone contemplating what upper eyelid surgery entails, as in upper blepharoplasty for cosmetic or functional correction, ptosis(droopy eyelid) repair, restoration or enhancement of a pre-existing eyelid crease that has faded with natural aging, and any procedure that involves entry or exiting through the upper eyelid crease. Therefore the information may be helpful to readers of any ethnicity.
(The Author Dr.William Chen has published two surgical textbooks related to this topic: the original "Asian Blepharoplasty-A Surgical Atlas"(published 1995), and "Asian Blepharoplasty and the Eyelid Crease"(2006), both by Butterworth-Heinemann. He holds a clinical faculty position at the University of California, and is in private practice in Southern California.)
What's New in Version 2.22
Besides being optimized for iPad,the book format is now readable on all Apple computers with the latest operating system, as well as iPhone and iTouch. (Previous version was for iPad only). Updates on references. Minor corrections.
Extremely well-written, easy to read, with beautiful diagrams and useful photos. Excellent for the facial plastic, oculoplastic, or plastic surgery trainee as well as the seasoned surgeon who is interested in a refresher or another perspective. Dr Chen is arguably the world’s expert in eyelid and certainly Asian eyelid surgery. His previous texts are all outstanding, and it is refreshing to see an IBook with his name on it.
Informative, Interesting, and Easily Digestible!
This book is informative and easy to read. As a visual learner, there are many clear diagrams, detailed photos, and great video to reinforce concepts described in the text. I highly recommend this book for those in the medical field and even to those non-medical readers who are simply curious!
