Cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a highly specialized part of aesthetic facial surgery.  The eyelids are a very complex anatomic part of the face, and surgery on the eyelids (blepharoplasty – lower or upper) requires an experienced eyelid surgeon.  Often times to avoid the potential recovery and complications from surgery patients prefer less invasive treatments to correct their eyelid bags.  One such treatment is the injection of eyelid fillers (such as Restylane) to fill the hollows below the eyes and camouflage the eyelid bags (make them less apparent).

The injection of eyelid filler (Restylane, Juvederm) is still a procedure which requires an expert in this procedure.  Dr. Guy Massry is one such expert.  Dr. Massry has years of experience with cosmetic blepharoplasty (eyelid lift surgery) and eyelid filler treatment.  He has recently published his second textbook on the subject . It is critical that you only see an eyelid specialist for filler (Restylane) around the eyelids to avoid potential complications.

Below is an example of lower eyelid filler (in this case Restylane) on a man.  Note the improvement in lower lid bags and eyelid contour eyelid Restylane treatment.  While surgery may have improved the eyelid bags more, this man was able to attain a substantial improvement without having to have surgery.  This is the main benefit of eyelid filler for eyelid bags.  You can view many more examples of eyelid surgery at Dr. Massry’s web site .

If you live in Beverly Hills or Los Angeles, and are interested in a consultation for eyelid filler or  blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) surgery, you can contact Dr. Massry at his office (310) 453-8474 or through his web site .  Dr. Massry looks forward to seeing you soon.
