You asked:

Likely Results for Upper Eyelid Surgery?

I am wondering if someone could tell me by looking at my photo, what sort of result I may expect from my upper eyelid surgery. Thank you for your time.

Doctor:

Thank you for your question and for submitting your photos.

You’re asking what are the likely results of your upper eyelid surgery. And certainly, I can tell you by looking at your photos that you are a candidate for upper eyelid blepharoplasty and the definition of upper eyelid blepharoplasty is to reduce the skin in a way such that your eyes appear more open or to reduce redundant skin. Now what you really need to do is make an evaluation by visiting some doctors about the style in which your upper eyelid blepharoplasty will. Just like everyone has different taste in a lot of different things whether it’s color or style, anyone who performs eyelid surgery does it a little bit differently. They do it in their own way. And so when people come to me, my personal style and my personal approach is when I look at someone with extra eyelid skin, in the traditional sense, plastic surgeons always felt that taking away skin as much as possible was the goal and with a history that they want to avoid having to do another surgery anytime soon. Now, we’ve learned that that’s not necessarily the ideal for everyone. It’s not about taking as much skin as possible. From my perspective, as an artist, I look at the person’s eye shape. And what happens with upper eyelids, when their skin is really hanging over, it hides the true natural shape. And many of patients come in, they have a beautiful shape with their eyes but it is being hidden by the hooding over the eyes. So what I tell them, my job is to reveal the true shape of your eyes. And the art of eyelid surgery in my opinion is doing it in a way so that no one who sees you can tell you had eyelid surgery. To me, that’s the highest compliment for a cosmetic surgeon is when the patient comes back and say “My friends can’t tell what I had done, they just keep on saying I changed my hair or went on a vacation.”

You see, the eye communicate your mood, your energy and so when people see hooding or puffiness, they’re not thinking you have hooding or puffiness. They’re thinking that you look tired. Invariably, people come back to me say “No one can figure out why I look better.” So I would say if you were to come to someone like me, that would be the idea. But as far as being able to tell you what exactly you would look like after eyelid surgery, that’s kind of a 3-dimensional experience. So what I do in my practice, I have the patient sit down in front with a mirror and I actually roll the skin a little bit with a cue tip and it gives people an idea. Of course they get to look at my books and my befores and afters in 20 years of doing this, I have more than a few to show them so that they can get a sense of my style of how I do the upper eyelid surgery.

So I think with the right hand, your likely result will be very nice. I think it will very nice to see the real shape of your eyes and it’s just the matter of finding the right doctor that resonates with you and get it done. And I thank you for your question and I hope that was helpful.

You asked:

Is Lower Blepharoplasty (and or Eyelid Lift) Surgery Right for Me?

I’m a 34 year old female who has a permanent “tired” look. I don’t know how my appearance could change so much within a year. I read that if the tired appearance is due to loss of fat causing hollowness of the eye that a blepharoplasty would make it worst. Is this true? It’s difficult to assess from a picture, but do I look like a good candidate for this surgery? If not, what would you recommend? I am seeking a permanent solution. Any well known Surgeons in Montreal for this surgery?

Doctor:

Thank you for your question!

You’re asking is lower eyelid blepharoplasty right for you and could it potentially make the eye appearance look worse. This is a very common question in my practice as a cosmetic eyelid specialist. And what I try to do is communicate that a single solution is necessarily enough for people who have more than one issue. And let’s explore that a little bit.

Looking at your photos it is clear you have bulging fat pockets under the eyes. It’s called lower eyelid fat prolapse or herniated fat. So essentially what that means is fat that’s normally behind the eye has pushed forward and created a bulge. In addition, it’s clear from your photos that there’s also a lot of relative hollowing in the cheek area. And when I communicate with my patients about rejuvenation of the eyes, I always include the cheek. I feel the eyelid cheek connection always has to be balanced. As someone who also does facelifts and specializing in facial aging, I always look at the eyes beyond the eyes when people talk to me about a particular problem. Because as soon as their problem is resolved, there’s always something else when we anticipate, we can at least address. We don’t necessarily have to address it in the time of surgery but we can anticipate.

So in your situation, there is relative hollowing at the rim of the eye as well as the cheek. So if you were to come to my practice, I would probably discuss with you some type of volume enhancement of also the cheek area. Now this can be combined with the lower eyelid procedure. So for example, for some patients would actually put a submalar or cheek implant to add volume to the cheek in a more permanent fashion. If the person is hesitant about that, we can offer something like fat transfer to add volume in the cheek. This way the eyelid and the cheek area will look a little bit more balanced.

You know facial anatomy is very individual and someone with a longer and thinner face, we can do things to enhance but we can’t radically change the basic structure. So what we wanna do is maximize your appearance to its potential.

So with that being said, I would still recommend a transconjunctival blepharoplasty. A lot of types when people have this type of flat area, they are at risk of the eyelid pulling down with the external incision approach. Of course, as an oculofacial plastic surgeon, I would anticipate a lot of the anatomic issues that could cause problems but nonetheless, it is routine for me to do this from the inside of the eyelid to reduce the fat pockets and then perhaps enhance this lower eyelid to cheek junction with a filler such as Restylane and a later time, usually not at the time of the surgery. But at the time of the surgery, we also apply something called platelet rich plasma which is derived from your blood and it’s a concentration of the healing elements of the blood called the platelets. And we have found that it helps with skin quality and skin texture. So when you have relatively thin skin and relative hollowing, it’s all about adding volume and volume to the thickness of the skin and volume to the soft tissue.

So my suggestion to you is to find a cosmetic surgeon who understands a plan that is more comprehensive than just being focused on the one issue such as the fat pockets. So when you work together and you have a plan in mind then this can be something that you can work on over course of time so that you can ultimately get the best appearance possible.

So I hope this helps you with the understanding of your situation and my personal style and how we approach this in my practice. I wish you the best of luck and I thank you for your question.

You asked:

Is 23 Too Young to Consider Lower Eyelid Surgery?

I am 23 years old and have always been dark under my eyes, I believe this is hereditary. Recently I have noticed this has worsened (I used to be able to cover the darkness with make up, but I seem to have more of a “hollowing” now). I am concerned about whether I am too young to be considering surgery or treatment in this area. People have been asking me if I’m tired and I am worried this will only get worse as I get older. Any advice would be appreciated.

Doctor:

Thank you for your question!

At the age of 23 you’re asking about procedural options and why there has been a real change such that your friends are asking why you are looking so tired. I looked at your photos and I just have to say they’re a little bit dark but essentially, I noticed a couple of things. One is, the under eye area looks a little bit hollow and what that means essentially is that the area from the rim of the eye and the bone, called the orbital rim, and a cheek area, on a younger person typically has a little bit more fat or a little bit more thickness. So that it looks a little bit more full. So a lot of times when people get older, that area becomes a little bit more thin and it hollows a little bit. I also noticed possibly a little bit of puffiness underneath the eyes.

Clearly this more likely something that’s genetic. But I would ask also if you are engaging in a lot of vigorous athletic activity. Very often when people become very lean or very low body fat, they tend to also get hollowed out in the face and get very very lean. So that’s something also to consider as a cause if you’re engaging in a lot of athletic level activity. If you are not, then you’re basically dealing with a genetic trait.

So one of the least invasive solutions that we offer in our practice is, we call it the non-surgical eye lift which is basically adding volume in that area, from the tear trough area to the under eye area where we can place a material called hyaluronic acid. And that goes under the trade name such as Restylane. What we’re doing is essentially filling out under the skin some volume to help the contour look a little bit softer and it tend to make people look less tired and a little bit more natural. In addition, if you have any issues with the skin and skin quality for example if you are exposed to a lot more of incidental sun exposure, people who tend to live in very hot climates in the United States such as Florida, California, they tend to have a lot of incidental sun exposure than those of us who live in the north east and spend a lot of time inside. Skin quality can be an issue so, a good sun block, under eye moisturizing cream, even something in the retinol family to help with cell turnover can help refresh the skin. A lot of times, the skin luster when it gets dull makes someone also look tired.

Again, you are young. You don’t wanna do many things that are very invasive. So you may take some little steps and get to the point where maybe you’ll be satisfied and something that can last for several months so that you don’t have to require a lot of maintenance. My suggestion is that you meet with a couple of cosmetic medical specialists who can assist you in this area. You may want to lean to someone who has a lot of experience with eyes because this is a delicate area and you certainly don’t want to look like you’ve had a procedure. So usually experience and background training and aesthetic sense helps a lot with that.

So I hope that was helpful and thank you for your question.
