|Alfredo Rodriguez, M.D., F.A.C.S
|(1) Blepharoplasty patient shown before
surgery with bags under eyes and wrinkled
folds of skin hooding eyelashes on upper lid.
|(2) For upper eyelid surgery, generally, an incision is
hidden within the natural fold of the upper eyelid and
extends slightly beyond the outside corner into the
laugh lines or other existing creases.
|(3) For lower eyelid surgery, often an
incision is hidden just below the lower
lashes. Excess fat in both the upper and
lower eyelids may be removed, or
sometimes lower eyelid fat is redistributed.
|(4) The postoperative patient with
unobstructed upper eyelids and firmer,
smoother skin under the eyes.
