face-lift-before-after-2Drooping and wrinkling of the eyelids, along with eyelid bags… Some people start noticing these as early as in their twenties. Eye Lift surgery, commonly known as BLEPHAROPLASTY probably results in the most dramatic change in facial rejuvenation. Depending on the individual’s specific needs, the surgery can consist of removing excess upper and lower eyelid skin, correction of asymmetries in eyelid position (ptosis repair), removal of eyelid bags, and tightening of the lower eyelids, or any combination of these. One area of particular interest for us has been improvement of the Oriental upper eyelid. Blepharoplasty in the Oriental eyelid involves dealing with special problems that are unique and require special expertise and experience.

Blepharoplasty | Eyelid Lift Procedure

We have had the occasion to perform blepharoplasties on many Oriental eyelids with quite satisfactory results. Particularly there have been some of our patients who had undergone eyelid surgery previously and were quite unhappy with the results, and once they approached us we were able to provide them with satisfactory corrections. During the past few years new types of laser have found their way in eye lift surgery. With the help of the laser, fine wrinkles of the lower eyelids which were once uncorrectable can be treated and the result is expected to last for several years. In addition, lower eyelid bags can be removed through the inner surface of the lower eyelid, again using the laser. This is called TRANSCONJUNCTIVAL BLEPHAROPLASTY and by doing so we avoid an outside incision on the lower eyelid and its inherent problems. Of course not everyone is a suitable candidate for this procedure. Therefore it is of utmost importance to evaluate each individual carefully, make the appropriate diagnosis, and recommend a “custom-made” plan specifically for that individual.

Eyelid Lift Surgery Recovery & Results

More recently there have been additions to the armamentarium of blepharoplasty, both for the upper and lower eyelids, which have in most cases eliminated the chance of problems such as post-surgical drooping of the lower eyelids and dryness, which used to be more common. As a result the results of modern eyelid improvement surgery are much more gratifying and patients are much happier. Especially since in most cases the surgery can be done under local anesthesia, there is almost no postoperative pain, and the patients are able to return to work within a few days.
