Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic or functional (to improve vision) eyelid surgery whose goal is to improve appearance or field of vision.  Blepharoplasty surgery can involve the upper or lower lids and can be performed under local anesthesia (patient awake with numbing shots), under twilight anesthesia (sedated) or under general anesthesia (patient completely out).  The key to successful surgery is not knowing when to do surgery, but rather when not to do surgery.

In the next series of blogs Dr. Guy Massry will review when it is not appropriate to perform blepharoplasty surgery.  This will include in cases when the eyes are in danger of complications, when added procedures (such as canthoplasty, canthopexy, ptosis repair, brow lifting, mid face lifting or fat grafting ) are required but not suggested, when there is a significant dry eye condition, when the patients’ medical health or medications they take limit proceeding, or when expectations cannot be met.

All information will be presented by Dr. Guy Massry, Beverly Hills oculoplastic surgeon.  Dr. Massry has years of experience and expertise is cosmetic and reconstructive brow lifting, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), mid face lifting, fat grafting, fat repositioning and revision (redo) surgery.  For more information on Dr. Massry, or to schedule a consultation to see Dr. Massry, he can be reached through his website, or at his office (310) 657-4302
