This patient disliked the bagginess of her eyelids and fine wrinkles, particularly her crow’s feet. She also had small skin lesions of the right upper eyelid and orbital rim, to be removed simultaneously. She had epicanthal folds (skin folds of the inner corners of the upper eyelids), which were released using small interpositional skin flaps, called Z-plasties. Because of her youth and minimal skin laxity, a transconjunctival approach was used for her lower lids. Procedures: Upper and lower transconjunctival blepharoplasties, release of epicanthal folds, erbium laser resurfacing, excision of skin lesions of right upper eyelid and right infraorbital rim.
