- Arching of eyebrows.
- Bones above eyes (supraorbital ridges) slightly flattened.
- Epicanthal folds (a fold of extra tissue near the central corner of the eye opening).
- Repair of telecanthus and epicanthus in versus: Two methods were tried. The one was by Y-V procedure of Verwey and the other was by Mustarde's rectangular flap operation. In both the operations the shortening and medial shifting of the medial palpebral ligament was done. Merselene thread was used for fixing of the medial palpebral ligament without any use of stainless steel wires and bone drill.
- Levator resection by skin approach was done in all cases except one case in which fascia lata sling was done. All these steps were carried out at the interval of 4 to 6 weeks under general anesthesia.
