Saggy upper eyelids and lower eyelid bags make us look tired and add years to our face. This is why the Eyelid Lift remains one of the most popular cosmetic plastic surgery procedures which I, and other Board Certified Plastic Surgeons, perform.
Blepharoplasty means eyelid changing, and it can rejuvenate our appearance and recharge our persona. San Francisco Bay Are Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Joseph A. Mele, discusses eyelid rejuvenation and narrates numerous blepharoplasty before and after pictures on this video segment taken from KRON 4’s Body Beautiful.
Blepharoplasty Video (Eyelid Lift)
The following video segment reviews Eyelid Lifts and illustrates what Blepharoplasty can do with numerous Eyelid Lift Before and After Pictures.
The preview screen on the above Blepharoplasty Video shows how excess upper eyelid skin can weigh down the upper eyelid. In the picture on the left, the upper and lateral visual fields are obstructed and the skin is resting on the eyelashes, making the normal use of eye makeup impossible. In the after picture on the right, the eye and the upper eyelid are now visible.
The Correction of Lateral Hooding
Lateral Hooding occurs when the eyelid or brow skin descends past the outside of the eye opening also known as the lateral orbital rim. Skin in this position blocks the lateral gaze, like blinders do on a horse. It also impacts a sleepy and older look to our eyes. In the above example, simply removing the excess skin corrected the problem. When the brow itself sags, a Brow Lift may be recommended.
Correcting Upper Eyelid Hooding
Sometimes the upper eyelid skin is so excessive that the entire upper lid is hooded. Wearing upper eyelid makeup properly is short lived at best. By removing the excess skin, the upper eyelid and lashes are revealed, and a natural eyelid crease is created.
If you would like to schedule a personalized consultation appointment, give me a call at (925) 943-6353. There is no substitute for an in-person eyelid consultation with an experienced and qualified, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. A brief exam and medical history are needed to be sure the procedure is right for you. Safety and predictability are the most important aspects of any surgery, but this is especially true of elective plastic surgery.
