Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
Blepharoplasty refers to the improvement of the upper and/or lower eyelid contour. Contour irregularities can involve development of skin redundancy and or protruding redundant or poorly supported fat pads. The correction of these deformities simply requires elimination of redundant skin and conservative trimming of herniated fat pads. Strategic placement of skin incisions allows for removal of redundant skin as well as access to trim the above mentioned fat pads.
The results below demonstrate how strategic placement of incisions can be nearly invisible and allow for contour corrections to be completed optimally. The secret to superior eyelid results is literally paying strict attention to incision line placement and gauging amount of skin that is to be removed so that the skin remaining behind on the two eyelids is symmetric. In addition, thorough evaluation is required to identify any risk factors that could increase propensity for undesirable side effects. When performed appropriately, eyelid tucking can result in superior outcomes as seen in the before and after results below.
