Abstract

A synopsis of major misconceptions, myths, and pitfalls regarding aesthetic blepharoplasty and eyelid crease procedures in Asians is presented. Some of the parameters contributing to sub-optimal results are outlined. It is hoped that this will help illuminate some of the hazards that practitioners of this form of aesthetic eyelid surgery may encounter.
