This patient is a fifty-five year old woman from west suburban Boston who came to my office interested in eyelid surgery. Her concern was the heaviness of her upper eyelids which actually impaired her line of vision and made her constantly look as though she was angry.
During her consultations we discussed eyelid rejuvenation. Her lower eyelid aging was not as advanced as was her upper eyelid aging. Therefore we choose to only perform an upper eyelid blepharoplasty. At surgery I removed excess skin and fat from the upper eyelids only. Her post operative photographs demonstrate the dramatic improvement possible with blepharoplasty. After surgery her eyes are a more youthful almond shape and she does not appear to be angry. Removing the excess skin from her upper eyelids also improved her line of vision.
