This 45-year-old woman was
involved in a traffic accident and sustained multiple lacerations to the
forehead and right upper eyelid. Following primary repair by the attending
doctor, she complained of problem with eyelid closure. Examination
showed shortage of the upper eyelid skin and it was likely that the
attending doctor excised some of the skin during the initial repair. A skin graft
procedure was performed using the skin from the clavicular area. She was
able to close her eye following the procedure.
