PMID: 10878829
Country PR China Korea RO China, Taiwan
Skin incision Various epicanthoplasty performed in 183 cases Anchor epicanthoplasty, used for out-fold crease (parallel crease shape), anchoring medial end of incision to deep tissue VM-plasty with three V-flaps
Skin 38 cases (shuttle form), 120 (cuneiform), Z-plasty in 25 cases Trimming skin
Orbicularis And soft tissue under medial fold
Orbital septum
Preaponeurotic fat
Crease form Parallel crease Outer (parallel)
Effectiveness 183 cases, performed together with double-eyelid procedures 67 cases; 28 cases followed. Disadvantages include technical difficulty and chance for active bleeding as stated by authors. Blends into medial end of parallel crease Used alone in 8 cases, with double-eyelid procedure in 51 young patients, and with upper blepharoplasty and crease procedure in 26 cases
Comments Three techniques depending on severity This technique is based on the concept of trimming of muscle and soft tissue under the Asian epicanthal fold and downward medial advancement and anchoring of the medial canthal skin to the deep tissue. Avoids incision over medial canthal skin (medial to the medial canthal angle) Redness of incisions was common but all faded away within 2–3 mth
