When we read blogs and articles we always read about the things TO DO. We hardly ever read about what NOT TO DO. So today, Dr. Guy Massry wants to share his 5 DO NOT Rules of lower lid blepharoplasty. These 5 do not rules are just as important as any “to do” rules in ensuring a patient gets the best lower blepharoplasty results possible.

What is lower lid blepharoplasty?

When we talk about lower lid blepharoplasty we are talking specifically about the area under the eyes. With age people may develop under eye bags, under eye hollows, or dark circles. With a lower lid blepharoplasty, the goal is to reduce the appearance of eyelid bags, while also filling in any hollows or dark circles. When performed by an experienced oculoplastic surgeon, like Dr. Massry, rather than removing precious eyelid fat, the excess fat is instead transposed to reduce fatty pockets and fill in the hollows. This approach results in smooth, youthful under eye contours.

Dr. Massry’s 5 DO NOT Rules of Lower Lid Blepharoplasty

Below are the 5 DO NOT rules that Dr. Massry always follows when he performs lower lid blepharoplasty.

  1. Do not change eye shape
  2. Do not change the angle of the outer corner of the lids (canthus)
  3. Do not cause a droopy (retracted) lower lid
  4. Do not hollow the lower lid
  5. Do not shorten the eye opening

If a surgeon follows these 5 DO NOT rules, the results of a lower lid blepharoplasty will be phenomenal. Following these rules ensures that the results will look natural, which is the most important goal.
