This modification of Lower eyelid reduction is an excellent alternative to a traditional lower eyelid surgery that offers avoidance and prevention of the routine problems and complications seen with the standard approach. Thus scleral show and eversion of lower lid and residual skin wrinkling are very rare occurrence.
The spirit of this modification is defined by a triad of steps: the deliberate preservation of the eyelid integrity with transconjunctival lower lid reduction of eye bulges, accurate alignment of lower eyelid and proficient excision of the redundant skin.
This procedure is performed under local anaesthesia with some sedation.
The excess skin is marked with a pinch manoeuvre and excised.
Stitches are then applied for 7 days.
