Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

Blepharoplasty Eyelid SurgeryThe eyes are usually the most attractive facial feature. As the principal component of expression, the eyes communicate our mood and attitude to others. The eyes have a great deal to do with how people perceive us as they glance at our facial features because the eyes are what they first noticed. Changes related to the structures surrounding the eyes, including the eyelids and brows, can give a tired or aged expression.

In the upper lids, skin can sag and wrinkle and fat can bulge, particularly a fat pocket near the nose. In the lower eyelids similar changes of skin wrinkling and drooping are seen, but the fat pockets can be more pronounced. Whereas these changes frequently occur with aging, in some cases, younger people can also be affected as a result of heredity.

Blepharoplasty can address the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, to reverse some of the unfavorable features of the eyelids to provide a more refreshed and youthful appearance. In performing blepharoplasty, Dr. Samaha always aims to create a natural, "unoperated" look which regains the youthful glow of the eyes and the entire face. His technique emphasizes a minimally invasive approach to reduce bruising and allow a faster recovery. At our clinic, blepharoplasty is a painless procedure. Dr. Samaha favors local anesthesia with sedation for the surgery (see anesthesia).

Dr. Samaha performs blepharoplasty alone or in conjunction with a facelift or browlift as part of an overall facial rejuvenation. In our experience, blepharoplasty has a high success rate and the improvement can be significant and long lasting. It is therefore not surprising that it is associated with a very high degree of satisfaction.
