The parent of this 10 year-old girl consulted us for improving the facial appearance of this girl. She possessed the typical facial features of blepharophimosis: bilateral ptosis with poor levator function, narrow palpebral width, epicanthus inversus, telecanthus and downward slanting eyebrows. To improve the appearance, we scheduled to perform frontalis suspension and bilateral medial canthoplasty. A similar case was discussed in Case of the Week (case 16).
