This patient underwent upper and lower eyelid lift surgery. She came to the office stating that she had noticed changes around her eyes that made her appear tired and fatigued. The upper eyelid surgery removed the excess skin and created more space between the eyelashes and the upper eyelid crease. This creates an illusion that the eye is more open and awake.
This patient also underwent a lower eyelid lift or blepharoplasty to improve the fullness and bags underneath the eyes. The technique used was a transconjunctival lower lid blepharoplasty with fat repositioning. During this procedure, I moved the fat creating the lower lid bags into the cheek region to create a smooth transition between the eyelids in the cheeks. This takes away the shadowing and bags underneath the eyes.
Her results are long-lasting and natural and do not create the appearance of an operated and hollowed eye region. The patient was very pleased with her results.
