Orbit size and lid marking in upper blepharoplasty

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


When marking the upper lids, the inferior incision is placed in the location of the desired postoperative eyelid crease. Many patients have a well-defined, ideally positioned preoperative crease that can be used. Otherwise, the surgeon must determine the location for the desired crease. This location should be individualized, realizing that excessive high or low creases may have an abnormal appearance and can occasionally adversely affect eyelid function.
