Title : E-BABE- complications, unfavorable results and critical analysis of the double eyelid procedure
The Double Eyelid Procedure is one that is potentially fraught with unfavorable results as well as numerous complications due to the fact it is a procedure based predominantly on symmetry, precision and tissue characteristics with errors measured in millimeters. Coupled with significant expectations often times unrealistic from the patient’s perspective. Who may routinely view a normal, expected outcome as an unfavorable result. Potentially unfavorable results can range from crease size dissatisfaction, relapse to a single eyelid, asymmetry, multiple creases as well as high or thick fold. Whereas, possible complications can range from ectropion, ptosis, ocular injury, hypertrophic scarring, milia as well as suture granuloma. There is probably no other facial cosmetic surgical procedure that is more dependent on exactness and precision, coupled with patient expectations and visibility then the Double Eyelid operation.
