Crease formation in upper blepharoplasty

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Crease formation is an important part of upper blepharoplasty. A soft, subtle crease can be formed by suturing the edge of the pretarsal orbicularis muscle to the levator aponeurosis with three 7-0 Vicryl sutures. A more defined crease can be achieved by incorporating the aponeurosis in the skin closure.
