Abstract To the Editor. —This letter is in response to a comment by Glatt et al1 in the February 1991 issue of the Archives. They mentioned that "many patients who have undergone blepharoplasty have very low pain thresholds ..." during the removal of sutures following eyelid surgery. This implies that persons undergoing blepharoplasty are a different type of patient, which is simply impossible to believe. I think I would have believed it 20 years ago, in that our background as ophthalmologists frequently caused us to look askance at patients who wished to have any cosmetic procedure performed. I hope the comment casually dropped in their reply is taken with a grain of salt by the readers, and re-examined by the writers. References 1. Glatt HJ, Putterman AM, Farber MD.
