- Dr. Inessa Fishman
This 70-year-old woman felt she looked aged and tired after going through several difficult and stressful years. She had had a previous facelift surgery many years ago, and was bothered by jowling and loose skin in her neck. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman treated her with a revision deep plane facelift and deep plane neck lift, lower blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and an upper lip lift. The lower blepharoplasty/ eyelid surgery was performed through the inside of the lower eyelid, with no visible scar. The fat bags under the eyes were contoured and repositioned into the upper cheeks, to create a smooth transition between the eyelids and cheeks. The patient is shown with excellent healing at just 3 weeks after surgery. Her scars and outcome will continue to soften and improve over the next 6 months.
About Blepharoplasty / Eyelid Surgery Procedure
Some individuals may have excess fat (“eye bags”) and skin at their upper and lower eyelids due to genetics or the aging process. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a form of surgical facial rejuvenation that helps patients reduce the appearance of aging by removing and repositioning excess skin, muscle and fat from the eyelids. Eyelid surgery helps patients enjoy a more youthful, alert appearance with a relatively minor treatment. Our facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman commonly performs eyelid surgery as a standalone procedure, or in combination with rhinoplasty or facelift surgery.
