In lower eyelid reconstruction, we use a V-Y advancement flap from the lower lateral cheek. The technique is simple and the scar after surgery is fine. On the other hand, we recommend supporting the reconstructed flap firmly to prevent ectropion due to either scar contraction or gravity. We use fascia lata fixed to a newly developed screw system that is directly inserted into the lateral orbital rim. By using these techniques, lower eyelids were successfully reconstructed.
