Cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a specialized surgery which can significantly enhance your appearance. However, it is important to understand that blepharoplasty, when performed by an inexperienced surgeon, can potentially lead to poor results with short term or permanent disability.
How can you avoid blepharoplasty complications?
Avoiding surgical complications requires the expertise of an eyelid specialist and expert, known as an oculoplastic surgeon. Dr. Guy Massry, MD is a Beverly Hills oculoplastic surgeon who performs cosmetic blepharoplasty routinely. He has over 20 years of experience with this surgery - having performed thousands of procedures. Oculoplastic surgeons, like Dr. Massry, are the most qualified surgeons to perform any sort of cosmetic eyelid surgery because they have dedicated their medical practice solely to procedures around the eyes. This precise practice means they perform more blepharoplasty surgeries than a general plastic surgeon, who is performing cosmetic procedure on the entire body. This focus not only helps them avoid surgical complications, but in the unfortunate chance that a complication does arise during a blepharoplasty procedure, they have the keen knowledge on how to minimize the risks.
Minimizing Lower Blepharoplasty Complications
Lower blepharoplasty is actually far more complex than upper eyelid surgery. The problem is that unless a surgeon is performing lower blepharoplasty procedures in high volume there is no way to develop the skills needed to attain consistent and predictable results with the surgery. For this reason you must understand that lower blepharoplasty is not simply a plastic surgical procedure – but rather an ophthalmic (eye related) plastic surgical procedure – BIG DIFFERENCE.
Dr. Massry performs many revision lower blepharoplasty procedures yearly. To avoid a revision surgery, it is imperative you see an expert like Dr. Massry the first time around!
Patient 1: Primary lower lid blepharoplasty with fat repositioning with Dr. Massry.
Patient 2: This woman was very unhappy with pulled down (retracted) lower lids from previous surgery by another doctor. After revisional surgery with Dr. Massry her appearance is significantly improved.
Non-Surgical Corrections For Unsatisfactory Results
In some cases, additional surgery is not the answer for patients who had poor results following a primary lower lid blepharoplasty. If surgery is not a patient's best option, Dr. Massry will recommend using dermal fillers to help improve the appearance. Below is a video of Dr. Massry performing filler injections on a patient who had surgery with another doctor that left him with drooping lower eyelids. The filler lifts the lower lids that are being pulled down and makes the eyes look less "buggy."
