The pathophysiology of involutional entropion is multifactorial and correction of the multiple causes may require use of a combination of procedures. Here, we report the outcome of treatment of entropion of the lower eyelid using the rhytidoplasty and modified Celsus–Hotz procedure for 29 Japanese patients. The patients comprised nine males and 20 females of age 44 to 86 years old (average age 69 years old). A postoperative assessment was performed in our office or by telephone interview. There were no cases of secondary ectropion and almost all of the patients were pleased with the results. This combined procedure is a simple approach with reduced invasiveness that can address almost all the main factors that contribute to formation of involutional entropion in Asian patients. In our patients, postoperative complications were rare and the results were satisfactory in terms of functional and aesthetic improvement.
