A method of upper lid reconstruction is reported using a substantial amount of the lid's own tissue as well as a temporal advancement flap. The result is a well-functioning, good-looking lid. The development of ophthalmic plastic surgery techniques is briefly reviewed. The recent interdiction against using upper lid tissue for lower lid repair is questioned.
