Gallery of Eyelid Surgery (blepharoplasty)
Plastic Surgeon Serving Indianapolis, Indiana
This 42 year-old woman with a long history of sun exposure had a loss of elasticity of her upper eyelids with sagging of the eyelid skin on to her lashes. She also had moderate bags under her lower eyelids due to prominence of the fat pads behind her eyelid muscles. She is shown before and 6 months after upper and lower blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery). Note the reappearance of a clean, youthful crease between her upper eyelids and eyebrows and improved contours of her lower eyelids.
This patient is a 26 year-old woman who had early prominence of her lower eyelid fat pads while her upper eyelids remained youthful. This problem, when seen at a young age as in this patient, usually is inherited. She had lower eyelid blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery) using an incision inside her eyelids so there was no visible scar. She is seen before and 3 months after surgery with complete correction of the bags and corresponding shadows under her eyes.
