BEFORE & AFTERS
G, 59 year old, African American, New York, USA
G is a 59 year old lady who since childhood has been bothered by her puffy upper and lower eyelids. Her main concern was the baggy appearance under her lower lids, they often make her look tired and swollen as if she stayed up every night. After discussion and examining her skin, an approach inside the eyelid was done to avoid any incision on the skin outside. All the excess fat was taken out through the small incision. Notice the disappearance of her eyebags in all eye positions.
*Individual results may vary.
WHY LOWER EYELID BLEPHAROPLASTY?
People who desire a lower eyelid procedure often do so because of the appearance of eye bags. The appearance of an eye bag is mostly age related from the fat protrusion under the lower eyelid. In the Asian population, however, even young people can have this problem. This look not only gives a premature aging appearance but also a tired, lack of sleep look that can affect the individual in social situations.
HOW IS IT DONE?
Like upper eyelid procedures, there are many approaches to lower lid surgery. Most of the techniques involving removing the excess fat that is herniated to reduce the baggy appearance. Whether the optimal procedure involving an incision on the outside to remove skin or an incision inside the eyelid should cater to individual’s anatomy and need.
47, Russian/Israeli, Dental Office Manager, New York, USA
“I was very nervous when I arrived to my first consultation with Dr. Lao. I had never had plastic surgery before and didn’t know what to expect. I explained to him that I wasn’t interested in changing my appearance, but only in getting a “fresher” look. Dr Lao was very sweet and patient. He answered all of my questions in great detail, both during the consultation, as well as to the numerous emails I had sent him. After my surgery, Dr. Lao kept in touch with me daily- checking in to see how I was feeling and answering questions about post-op care. I am very happy with my results and am wholeheartedly recommending Dr. Lao to any prospective clients.”
