Blepharoplasty (8/2012)

Case Of The Month Procedure: Blepharoplasty (8/2012)

The request of the patient was simple: “I look tired all the time. Can you make my eyes look refreshed?” Blepharoplasty (eyelid rejuvenation) is a straight forward procedure when it comes to the upper lids. The lower lids however are a different deal because of th e weight of the cheek musculature pulling them down. If this weight is not counteracted by repositioning it upwards, especially in the so-called “negative vector” patients who lack strong cheek bones, the result might be disastrous with exposure of the eyeball through an everted (turned down) lid. My contribution to this field was my devise of a suspension technique that hitches the heavy weight of the mid-face to the bones of the outer orbit. The entire surgery is conducted through the lower lid incision that is placed very close to the lash line. The result is the regaining of the youthful appearance of the eyes.*
