Eyelid without crease

Eyelid without crease

Problem: An epicanthic fold and a monolid are present on this woman. As a result, she is worried that her eyes appear dull and lackluster. Because of her age, she must undergo a short incision. This procedure will preserve the orbital fat without causing visible scarring.

Process: An effective short incision technique in this case has certain benefits, including the preservation of orbital fat and the prevention of scarring. By levator fixation only, the patient may achieve double eyelids. In addition, the epicanthic fold problem can be corrected by repositioning of fat. 

Operative technique

  • Step 1: The incision lines for eyelid surgery are drawn. 
  • Step 2: In this procedure, a small amount of fat is removed from the upper eyelid. In addition, the fat is also repositioned to create a more harmonious appearance
  • Step 3: The levator fixation procedure is completed

Final outcome: She no longer has a prominent epicanthal fold following surgery. The eyes appear more attractive and youthful without any visible scars on the epicanthus.
