Anchor or lid invagination blepharoplasty is an operation giving neat, crisp, and youthful lids of a permanency unobtainable by traditional techniques. It allows the surgeon to preserve precious lid skin and give optimal results. Although there is more postoperative edema, long-term results verify the efficacy of the technique. This article represents the author's 25 years' experience with thousands of patients, both Caucasians and Orientals, undergoing invagination-technique lid blepharoplasty procedures.
