Blepharoplasty 101: Aging Eyelids

Posted by admin

In the second video of his series Blepharoplasty 101, Dr. Guy Massry discusses aging eyelids.

One of the easiest ways to understand the aging process of the eyelids is to compare our faces and eyelids to grapes that turn into raisins. As we age, our skin doesn't just sag, but we also lose volume. This loss of volume is why fillers and fat grafting have become so popular over the past few years.

When performing eyelid surgery for aging eyelids, Dr. Massry believes it is really important to look at photos of patients when they were younger to make sure he can restore not only their appearance but their volume too. So when you are preparing for a consultation with Dr. Massry, please pull out some photos from your memory box when you were younger to share with him.

Traditional blepharoplasty surgery has always been about subtraction (ie. taking tissue out). However, a full eyelid is more attractive than a hollow eyelid. So, Dr. Massry believes a better paradigm is to take out only what is necessary, and, more importantly,  leave what is critical to look and work great!

Blepharoplasty 101: Meeting Patient Expectations

Posted by admin

In his series Blepharoplasty 101, Beverly Hills oculoplastic surgeon, Dr. Guy Massry, will discuss everything you need to know before undergoing cosmetic eyelid surgery. In the first video of the series, Dr. Massry discusses the importance of having realistic expectations for your surgery.

Many people, both patients and surgeons, overlook the importance of establishing realistic expectations for blepharoplasty results. Every patient has a different idea in mind for how they want to look after cosmetic eyelid surgery, and it is critical that the patient clearly relays this vision to their surgeon in order to determine if the desired outcome is attainable. One of the most common reasons patients are not happy with their blepharoplasty results is because their expectations were not realistic.

At Dr. Massry's practice, he estimates that he only performs blepharoplasty on 3 out of every 10 patients who want the procedure. The reason is that he feels he cannot meet the expectations of 70% of patients. This happens for many reasons.

The eyes are the window to the soul; they are important for vision. A mistake in this area is not ok!

During a consultation with a surgeon, make sure that your expectations can be met so that you are happy with the results!
