This review article highlights recent, important developments regarding cosmetic Botox injections for lines of facial expression, laser facial-resurfacing techniques, endoscopic and updated browlift techniques, lower-lid blepharoplasty with suborbicularis oculi fat lift, and subcutaneous Gore-Tex implants for treatment of deep facial rhytids. Because of the space limitations of this review, it is not possible to include a thorough step-by-step description of all surgical techniques.
