Blepharoplasty is a procedure to correct the changes that occur in the area of the
eyelids over time: the puffiness, the fat herniation and wrinkling of the skin.

The area of the upper eyelids have a different anatomy than the lower eyelids, therefore,
their correction is going to be different.

I believe that the surgeon making the incisions accurately is the most important step. I
design the incisions in the area very carefully, and estimate the amount of skin and fat
that needs to be removed from each side. Skin and fat are resected one side at a
time in the same way. Symmetry of the eyelids is checked and the incisions are

For the lower eyelid of the Blepharoplasty, I frequently perform the fat resection through the inside
of the eyelid (transconjunctival incision). If there are significant wrinkles,
then resurfacing is performed using either chemical peeling or with a laser. The
groove between the lower eyelid and cheek can be filled with either fat or Restylane.
