A four-year-old Chinese shar pei was presented for entropion repair that had not been corrected adequately with two prior Hotz-Celsus procedures. The primary cause for the failure was the weight of the excessive, superior facial folds often found in this breed. A new technique is presented to measure and remove these folds in a stellate pattern by following natural stress lines, thus effecting surgical repair of the superior lid entropion.
