Preoperative blepharoplasty markings might be challenging, especially for young surgeons. It takes experience to carefully evaluate the amount of skin excess that can be safely removed. In the current study, we explored the use of microsurgical vascular clamps as a novel and useful tool in the preoperative upper blepharoplasty markings; they made it possible to directly visualize the amount of skin to be removed, facilitating the surgeon (especially the young surgeon) preoperative markings process. In our series, 30 patients underwent upper blepharoplasty with preoperative application of microvascular clamps with satisfactory results.
