BACKGROUND: Although the technique of double eyelidplasty is well recognized, there have been a few reports on the measurement of the eyelid after the operation. Herein, we measured the changes of the eyelids photogrammatically and compared them with others. METHODS: Database of patients who had undergone double eyelidplasty using a three-partial-incision technique, along with a follow-up of more than 6 months, were identified. The changes of eyelid were measured by exposed eyeball area (EEA) and vertical dimension of palpebral fissure (VDPF) using preoperative and postoperative photographs. RESULTS: Between January 2012 and December 2013, there were 28 patients who were followed-up for more than 6 months. All patients were female between the age of 16 and 37 years; the average follow-up period was 11.4 months. The mean preoperative value of EEA was 74.6±9.1% and that of VDPF was 7.4±1.0 mm. Conversely, the mean postoperative value of EEA was 83.9±6.3% and that of VDPF was 8.5±1.0 mm. CONCLUSIONS: The mean values of EEA and VDPF after double eyelidplasty had changed with statistical significance.
