Tarsal sling prevents scleral show after lower blepharoplasty

January 29, 2015

In a retrospective analysis of 40 patients, tarsal sling was discovered to be a simple and quick procedure to prevent eyelid malposition after lower blepharoplasty, according to researchers.

Twenty patients underwent standard blepharoplasty (group one) and 20 underwent blepharoplasty with tarsal sling support (group two). The results were evaluated through photographs taken at 4 to 6 weeks preoperatively as well as postoperatively those taken at 30 days, 6 months, 1 year and 2 years.
