BLEPHAROPLASTY – EYELID SURGERY
A 52-year-old cosmetic patient from Boca Raton presents to our Fort Lauderdale cosmetic surgery center for a consult regarding upper eyelid surgery. She wants an improvement but she doesn’t want to have “an operated look”.
Clinical evaluation confirmed a moderate upper eyelid folds (blepharochalasia) and a mild loss of fat tissue over outside aspect of brows typical for age. We discussed upper blepharoplasty and a small amount of fat grafts in the eyebrows to create youthful fullness.
Her surgery was done in our office surgery center in Ft. Lauderdale in local anesthesia with a mild perioral sedation. It included removal of extra skin and minimal amount of fat and muscle from upper eyelids and injection of fat grafts (1-1.5 ml per side) to outer and inner aspect of brows.
Image on the left demonstrate signs of mild upper eyelid deformity with redundant skin fold. Image on the right shows improvement after very conservative removal of redundant skin from upper eyelids and injection of fat grafts to brows. Notice fullness of her eyebrows that look as if she had a brow lift. Patient is 6 months after upper blepharoplasty and very satisfied with her “un-operated look”.
