Incisions that extend beyond the lateral orbital rim leave a noticeable scar and should be avoided.4 In addition, if the underlying orbicularis is not removed from the lateral extent of the incision, it is likely to heal in a raised, full fashion that is aesthetically unacceptable. Given the cosmetic and functional nature of the procedure, avoidance of a noticeable scar and closure artifacts is vital.4,6- 7 Nevertheless, artifacts of skin closure can occur despite taking the precautions mentioned. A small elevation of tissue appearing as a bump can be noted in the lateral aspect of the incision in a small proportion of patients after blepharoplasty. The raised tissue usually improves and settles with time; however, in some patients it persists. Few descriptions regarding these bump artifacts and their treatment are present in the literature. Anecdotally, they have been treated in a number of ways, including massage, steroid injection, and/or surgical excision. Herein, we describe the incidence of these closure artifacts after upper eyelid blepharoplasty. We provide a new, quick, and simple method of their correction: bump thermoplasty.
