Cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a very specialized form of facial surgery which requires the expertise of an eyelid surgery specialist. This is particularly true with lower lid blepharoplasty (surgery for lower eyelid bags). Lower eyelid bags impart a tired look and make a person look worn and older. Their surgical correction can be performed through the skin (which carries a high risk of complications), or through the inside of the lower lid (transconjunctival blepharoplasty), which is the more modern and contemporary style of surgery which reduces the risks of complications tremendously.
Dr. Massry has performed thousands of eyelid surgeries and is the kind of surgeon one should seek out for upper or lower eyelid blepharoplaty, eyelid lifts and eyelid bag removal. Below is an example of a lower eyelid bag removal performed by Dr. Massry. Many more examples can be seen on his web site at http://www.drmassry.com/#/1-3.
Cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a highly specialized part of aesthetic facial surgery. The eyelids are a very complex anatomic part of the face, and surgery on the eyelids (blepharoplasty – lower or upper) requires an experienced eyelid surgeon. Often times to avoid the potential recovery and complications from surgery patients prefer less invasive treatments to correct their eyelid bags. One such treatment is the injection of eyelid fillers (such as Restylane) to fill the hollows below the eyes and camouflage the eyelid bags (make them less apparent).
The injection of eyelid filler (Restylane, Juvederm) is still a procedure which requires an expert in this procedure. Dr. Guy Massry is one such expert. Dr. Massry has years of experience with cosmetic blepharoplasty (eyelid lift surgery) and eyelid filler treatment. He has recently published his second textbook on the subject http://www.springer.com/medicine/ophthalmology/book/978-1-4614-0066-0 . It is critical that you only see an eyelid specialist for filler (Restylane) around the eyelids to avoid potential complications.
Below is an example of lower eyelid filler (in this case Restylane) on a man. Note the improvement in lower lid bags and eyelid contour eyelid Restylane treatment. While surgery may have improved the eyelid bags more, this man was able to attain a substantial improvement without having to have surgery. This is the main benefit of eyelid filler for eyelid bags.
