This study was performed to evaluate the clinical effect of skin redraping on lower eyelid epiblepharon accompanied by a medial epicanthal fold.

A total of 572 eyes from 286 patients underwent skin redraping surgery to treat lower eyelid epiblepharon with a medial epicanthal fold in this retrospective case study. The surgical outcomes were categorized as "healthy," "fair," and "bad." The Vancouver scar scale was used to evaluate the incision scars. The subjective satisfaction of the patients, as well as the occurrence of complications, were reported.

Results:
--The mean patient age at the time of surgery was 6.9±3.6 years (3–12 years), and the mean follow-up time was 32.6±13.5 months (6–58 months).

--The clinical symptoms and severity of keratopathy were improved postoperatively.

--“Good” surgical outcomes were obtained in all patients, the mean Vancouver scar scale score was 1.1±0.3, and hypertrophic scar formation did not occur.

--A total of 272 patients and their guardians were “very satisfied” with the cosmetic outcomes.

Conclusively, Skin redraping was effective and endurable in the treatment of lower eyelid epiblepharon accompanied by a medial epicanthal fold. The postoperative scars were slight and nearly invisible, and no cases of recurrence were observed in this study.
