This patient had weakness in his upper eyelids with resultant visual obstruction and irritation. The eyelid position left him looking fatigued. Blepharoplasty allowed for the sculpting of fat and skin. His eyelid crease was restored allowing for more comfort, better vision, and a more youthful appearance.
This patient had considerable fat prolapse and deep pigmentation of her skin. Blepharoplasty allowed for the removal of prolapsed fat and darkened skin. By removing some overacting muscles in the corners, we were also able to have her upper eyelids open nicely, thereby maximizing her cosmetic result.
This patient has upper eyelid retraction on the right and left brow ptosis. Symmetry was achieved by weakening the right upper eyelid muscle while elevating the left brow. Skin and fat was sculpted from both sides.
This patient underwent an upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty and tightening of her mid face muscles, along with an endoscopic forehead or brow lift.
This patient had similar surgery but her lower eyelid fat was moved into the hollow areas of her cheeks to prevent a gaunt or hollow post-operative appearance. Note the improvement in the deep furrows all around her eyes.
This patient has ptosis of the right upper eyelid muscle which happened when the nerve to that muscle became disrupted. Surgery involved tightening the upper eyelid muscle.
This patient had her left upper eyelid muscle repaired along with a concomitant blepharoplasty of both upper eyelids.
This patient has mechanical ptosis, which occurs when excessive skin blocks the eye from seeing. Her repair involved the sculpting of skin and redundant eyelid fat.
This patient was an older woman who had skin and fat removed from her upper and lower eyelids; because the underlying muscles were so weak, both the upper and lower eyelids pulled down thereafter. In addition to the haggard appearance, the eyes couldn’t close and were very dry and uncomfortable. Reconstruction involved tightening all of her eyelid muscles and creating a more open and more flattering appearance.
This patient presented with minimal eyelid strength and a very superficial crease. She had multiple folds and the the eyelids were only partially open. She had her eyelids tightened and the crease was made much deeper.
This patient had a very significant amount of eyelid laxity and skin discoloration. He had lost most of the connections that attach the skin to the underlying muscle. He underwent an upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty as well as a midface lift which supported the muscles allowing for much of that irregular tissue to be excised.
