Continuous contact and friction between the upper eyelid and cornea require that absorbable tarsal sutures either be nonbraided or do not extend through full-thickness tarsoconjunctiva. Posterior lamella replacement with palatal or nasal mucosa is generally avoided in all cases; use of these tissues in the upper eyelid is particularly likely to compromise the cornea. 69. 50 A, B. Upper eyelid defect involving a 10-mm marginal segment of tarsus. In elderly patients, the risk of postoperative ptosis with even mild horizontal tension requires generous relaxation of canthal attachments.

33 If defect width does not allow edge approximation using the aforementioned techniques, an eyelid-sharing procedure is necessary. Options include a tarsoconjunctival flap resurfaced with a skin graft or flap, and a tarsal free graft resurfaced with a flap. 34 The classic Wendell Hughes3 procedure combines a tarsoconjunctival transposition flap from the upper eyelid with a full-thickness skin graft. The upper eyelid is everted, and the height of the required tarsus is measured downward from the upper tarsal border (white solid line), maintaining at least 4 mm of marginal 33 34 tarsus.

8-cm (one-half to two-thirds) defect of the left lower eyelid.
