Objective: To introduce the clinical application of transcutaneous blepharoplasty with successive small triangular skin flap and evaluate the postoperative effects. Methods: During the surgery, the incision of skin is about 2 mm below the eyelid margin, and then developing a plane between septum and the preseptal orbicularis to expose the orbital septum. Two successive small triangular skin flaps were designed chronologically to remove the slack skin, and then the skin incision is sutured with 7-0 nylon line. The suture is removed 7 days after the surgery, and the follow-up period was 6 to 12 months. Results: This method can control the amount of slack skin and morphology of the lower eyelid was significantly improved. Only 1 patient showed insufficient amount of postoperative peeling, and the improvement effect was not obvious. Conclusion: The transcutaneous blepharoplasty with successive small triangular skin flap can estimate the amount of redundant skin more accurately. What’s more, it can reduce the incidence of complications, especially the lower eyelid ectropion and improve the rate of satisfaction, and is worth advocating in transcutaneous blepharoplasty.
