Beginning on the left upper lid, the skin excision was completed. The muscle was opened, herniated, adipose tissue pad in the middle and medial aspect was brought forward, cross-clamped, excised, cauterized, and allowed to retract. The eyes were kept irrigated and protected throughout the procedure. Attention was turned to the opposite side. Procedure was carried out in the similar manner.
At the completion, the wounds were then closed with a running 6-0 Prolene, skin adhesives, and Steri-Strips. Attention was turned to the right lower lid. A lash line incision was made. A skin flap was elevated and the muscle was opened. Large herniated adipose tissue pads were present in each of the three compartments. They were individually elevated, cross-clamped, excised, cauterized, and allowed to retract.
