Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty) Video Presentation
Heavy Upper Eyelids
Upper Blepharoplasty removes the excess upper eyelid skin, improving both appearance and in some cases vision. The patient above looks more awake and alert, and she can see better, after her upper blepharoplasty..
Sleep deprived eyes have droopy upper lids and puffy lower lids. As a result, heavy upper eyelids convey a tired, sometimes grumpy appearance. They can also give the impression that you are not fully alert, even when you are well rested. Additionally, as the amount of redundant skin increases, it begins to hamper vision, obstructing peripheral vision and making it harder to see to the sides and upward.
Asian Eyelid Surgery
Double Eyelid Surgery is used to create defined upper eyelid creases. The lack of a crease is common in patients with Asian ancestry. In fact, an upper eyelid crease is present in only half the Asian population. The lack of a crease allows the eyelid skin and fat to descend, causing a tired appearance and problems with vision.
In the patient above, her eyelid creases were formed with precise surgical techniques, creating smooth, distinct creases and more widely open eyes. In addition, her lower eyelid bags were reduced, creating a brighter and more refreshed appearance.
