Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is plastic surgery that is performed to improve the appearance of the eyelids. Most commonly, this involves removing excess skin and/or fat from the region of the eyelids. Great care must be taken to avoid removing too much skin or fat because this could lead to complications and a poor result. At the lower eyelid, the fat can be repositioned (instead of excised) in order to help improve the contour of the mid-face.

Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty

Skin excision

This lovely patient had excess upper eyelid skin and droopy brows leading to hooding of the upper eyelids. Ideally, a brow lift combined with upper blepharoplasty can be performed for full correction. However, considering her busy schedule and inability to take time off work, I simple performed an extended upper eyelid blepharoplasty under local anesthesia. She has achieved a significant improvement, which provides a natural rejuvenated appearance. She is also excited to be able to wear eye shadow.

Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty

Skin excision and fat repostioning

The case presented in this section involves a lovely woman who had developed progressively worsening bags and wrinkles under her eyes. I performed a lower blepharoplasty, which included repositioning the bulging fat from the lower eyelid to the cheek. In addition, a small amount of lower eyelid skin was excised in order to treat the wrinkles at that region. She now looks much more youthful, while maintaining a natural appearance. The incisions are imperceptible and she has a smooth contour at the under eyes.
