Blepharoplasty is one of the most commonly performed facial procedure worldwide and the most common procedure Dr. Abboud performs. Cosmetic upper eyelid blepharoplasty involves the surgical removal of redundant eyelid skin and contouring the fat around the eyes. Cosmetic lower eyelid blepharoplasty (under eye bag surgery) involves the surgical removal and/or repositioning of the fat under the eyes and, if necessary, tightening of the lower eyelid skin. A blepharoplasty aims to rejuvenate the area surrounding the eyes and to give an overall more youthful and rested appearance to the face.
A customized blepharoplasty tailored to each patient's aesthetic desires and unique features is necessary to achieve the best cosmetic results. It requires that the surgeon have a keen artistic understanding of what a beautiful eye looks like, a consideration for ethnic and gender differences, expert knowledge of eyelid architecture and function, and the advanced surgical skills to remove, reposition, and/or tighten the eyelid fat, skin, and musculature. An expert eyelid surgeon (i.e., one with extensive training in oculoplastic surgery), must additionally have the foresight to recognize when to preserve and/or reposition fat, when and where to refashion an eyelid crease, and when to combine a blepharoplasty with other procedures, such as a brow lift, canthoplasty (tightening of the outer corner of the eyelids), and eyelid ptosis repair (eyelid lift) to achieve the best post-operative results.
