Identifying the Inferior Oblique in Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty

  • Jemshed A. Khan


Prior to embarking upon transconjunctival blepharoplasty, the inferior oblique muscle should be clearly visualized. The inferior oblique is reliably located in the cleft between the nasal and central fat pads. Using cotton-tipped applicators, the nasal and central fat pads can be easily separated to allow the inferior oblique to come into view. Once identified, one can safely proceed with excision of the fat pads.
