Eyelid Plastic Surgery
Cosmetic Concern: 33-year old woman with heavy upper eyelids and lower eyelid fullness.
Diagnosis: Heavy brows are a feature she as had since childhood. The lower eyelids demonstrate a slight fullness from fat.
Treatment: Upper and lower blepharolplasty. The goal here was to remove enough skin in the upper eyelids to accentuate the upper eyelid platforms without removing too much of the fullness of the upper eyelid which is an important feature of her face. Her mother had a bad upper eyelid surgery and at first her mom was critical of my work because she thought I had not removed enough eyelid tissues. Once that patient healed her mother cried and apologized for being critical. The patient herself is thrilled with the result and has new confidence. She told us that this surgery literally changed her life.
