Blepharoplasty (eyelid) surgery is a unique kind of facial cosmetic or functional (to improve field of vision) surgery in which variable amounts of skin, muscle and fat are excised from the eyelids (both upper and lower eyelids). More modern advances have emphasized the need to preserve (rather than remove) one’s own eyelid fat (fat repositioning), or augment eyelid fat with transfer from another area of the body (fat grafting).
Blepharoplasty surgery, more than other kinds of plastic surgery, really requires an expert in this field. The eyes are our most important sensory organ (they allow us to see). No one but an eyelid surgical expert should perform this intricate form of cosmetic surgery.
Dr. Guy Massry, an ophthalmic plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, California is such a specialist. Dr. Massry has written numerous texts in the field, teaches around the country frequently, and publishes in scientific journals routinely. He has specific expertise and interest in performing revision (redo) surgery for cases that did not turn out well. Please contact Dr. Massry for more information if you are considering blepharoplasty.
Blepharoplasty surgery (cosmetic eyelid surgery) is a specialized form of facial surgery which is performed by general plastic, facial plastic and oculoplastic surgeons. While all specialists are qualified to perform such surgery only oculoplastic surgeons have specific and specialized training in blepharoplasty surgery.
Oculoplastic surgeons are certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology or AAO (eye surgery) and by the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery or ASOPRS. In other words they are dual certified in both surgery of the eyes themselves and the eyelids (blepharoplasty surgery).
The most common complications Dr. Massry sees after blepharoplasty include: a wide eyed appearance, a change in shape of the eyes, eyes that don't close, lower lids that are pulled down (retracted), eyelid scarring, dry eye issues, tearing, red eyes, irritated eyes, etc. It is critical to see only a blepharoplasty specialist such as Dr. Massry (Beverly Hills oculoplastic surgeon) to avoid these problematic issues. Why is this important? The reason is that oculoplastic surgeons have the best training in eyelid surgery!
