Cosmetic eyelid surgery is not a “one size fits all” procedure. Our eyes are the most defining characteristics of our face and deserve to be treated with personalized and customized care. Dr. Guy Massry believes the best cosmetic eyelid surgery results are those that are tailored to the specific needs of the patient.

So how did Dr. Massry achieve the best cosmetic eyelid surgery results for this patient? He performed a customized outer brow lift with upper and lower blepharoplasty.
What is an Outer Brow Lift?
The outer brow lift is a very important component of natural looking eyelid rejuvenation results, but many patients have never heard of an outer brow lift. Most patients come to Dr. Massry for an upper blepharoplasty thinking that all that needs to be done is to correct the appearance of sagging upper eyelids. However, what they don’t realize is that the position of the outer brows often affects the upper lid fullness. So when the outer brow falls, which is a normal change due to aging, the upper lids become heavier. If the outer brow is not lifted during surgery, the root of the upper lid sagging is not addressed.
Please keep in mind that not everyone needs the outer brow lift. This is why it is so important to find an expert oculoplastic surgeon to evaluate your needs and determine the best course of surgery for YOU.
Rejuvenating the Lower Lid
A lower lid blepharoplasty gets rid of under eye bags and can be performed a variety of ways. As a seasoned expert in lower eyelid rejuvenation, Dr. Massry generally prefers to perform the surgery through an incision on the inside of the eyelid because it significantly reduces the risk of changing the shape of the eye and there is no visible scar. Furthermore, when necessary, Dr. Massry will perform fat repositioning to smooth out the hollows under the eyes. But again, each patient is unique and Dr. Massry utilizes other lower blepharoplasty techniques when necessary to provide each patient with the best results.
