Conjunctival chemosis, which can be a prolonged, uncomfortable, and cosmetically undesirable complication of cosmetic and functional eyelid procedures, is not uncommon after blepharoplasty.1 It is especially bothersome after cosmetic blepharoplasty, when the patient expects rapid recovery and improved cosmesis. In addition to complaints of irritation, foreign body sensation, epiphora, and decreased vision, patients often worry about the gelatinous-appearing material that protrudes from their eyes. Typically, chemosis is self-limiting or reversible with time if the underlying conditions are treated. However, persistent conjunctival chemosis can occur.2- 4 Pharmacological, mechanical, and surgical interventions have been used alone or in combination to manage chemosis. Conservative treatments include pressure patch, lubrication, ocular decongestants, steroid ointment or drops, pressure patching, and oral steroids. The surgical therapies advocated include the use of a silicone bolster in the lower fornix, lymphatic drainage, limbal peritomy conjunctivoplasty, drainage conjunctivotomy, and perilimbal needle manipulation.1,5- 7 We describe a snip conjunctivoplasty technique to treat refractory postoperative conjunctival chemosis that has been very useful in our practice over the past 5 years.
