Cantoplasty can also be performed along with cosmetic procedures such as an eyebrow lift or a mid-face lift.
The history of Eyelid Aesthetic goes back over 2000 years, it was first described by Susruta.
In the late 10th century, Arab surgeons described cauterization of the excess skin of the eyelids to restore a more youthful appearance. In the late 15th century, Celsus described the removal of the skin of the upper eyelid in his publication De re Medica. However, it was not until 1818 that the term blepharoplasty was coined by von Graefe to describe a case of eyelid reconstruction following cancer treatment.
In the 1950s, Costanares described in detail the anatomy of fatty eyelid herniation and the basis of modern blepharoplasty. McIndoe was the first to perform percutaneous eyelid fat resection, and many others have made contributions that further elucidate the relationship between lower eyelid fat and eyelid aging. By the end of the 20th century, significant changes began to emerge that promoted the benefits of fat preservation and redistribution rather than resection.
Therefore, a modern approach to blepharoplasty must take into account both the presence and absence of fat, as well as the role it plays in the aesthetics of the eyelids and the aging process.
