Asymmetrical creases is one of the most common complications in asian blepharoplasty (double eyelid surgery). This often results from inaccurate measurement of the skin creases height at the time of the surgery.

This patient underwent asian blepharoplasty using the suture technique. The surgery was performed by a beautician 10 years ago. Unfortunately, the sutures were not placed at the same height and caused asymmetrical creases. Revision required an incisional technique to lower the skin crease.
