Enhancement of the upper and lower eyelids usually involves tightening loose, sagging skin, removing fat that can make the eyes look puffy, adding fat to fill out sunk tear troughs and upper cheeks, or any combination of these procedures. These photos show how use of these techniques can provide excellent results without looking unnatural or “operated on”.
Case #3072 – Blepharoplasty
This patient felt that her eyes looked puffy and tired. You can see that there indeed was some fullness in her upper and lower eyelids prior to surgery. We removed some of the excess fat from around her eyes and tightened her skin as well, leaving a fresher, more vibrant look.
Case #3078 – Blepharoplasty
This patient had hanging skin on her upper eyelids and puffiness in her lower eyelids. We tightened the upper eyelid skin and blended the fullness of her lower eyelids with her cheeks to give a smoother, more rested appearance.
Case #3084 – Blepharoplasty
Just tightening skin gave this patient a younger, fresher look.
Case #3090 – Blepharoplasty
Although blepharoplasty surgery is common for men, it is extremely important to recognize that eyelid surgery for men is much different than for women. Men naturally have a heavier appearing brow and upper lid. Over-correcting can give an unnatural appearance and should be avoided. Less is definitely more with men especially. This patient had removal of some of the upper eyelid puffiness and tightening of both upper and lower eyelid skin.
