Oculoplastics/Orbit, Orbital Trauma & Reconstruction
In this 1-Minute Video, Dr. George Bartley explains why the preaponeurotic fat is a key anatomical landmark. It is located posterior to the orbital septum and anterior to the aponeurosis of the levator palpebrae superioris. However, many surgeons are not aware that the eyelid may contain fat posterior to the levator aponeurosis. Encountering fat using the posterior or conjunctival approach, he explains, does not necessarily mean the surgeon has located the preaponeurotic space.
