Cosmetic eyelid surgery is about looking better and natural. This can only occur with an appropriate preoperative evaluation which identifies all aspects of the eyelids and adjacent structures which must be addressed during surgery. This approach will prevent patients from being unhappy after surgery. Patients don’t always know what about their eyelids make them look tired, worn or older. They just know they want an improvement. It is incumbent upon the cosmetic surgeon to inform and educate the patient regarding these issues so that the best outcome can be attained and realistic expectations are set in place.
What is the best way to do this? Well that is simple – Select the best surgeon for the job. This means a surgeon with the appropriate specialized training in surgery of the eyelids.
Below is an example of a patient before (left) and after (right) eyelid surgery which included an outer brow lift, ptosis repair, lower blepharoplasty with fat repositioning, canthopexy and slight lower lid skin excision. This example clearly demonstrates how many different procedures are needed to attain the best result possible. This could not have been attained without a surgeon with specific eyelid expertise.
