PLASTIC AND RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY

Which Eyelid Cosmetic Treatment is Right for Me? Consult Dr. Brian Evans

The best lower eyelid surgery is customized for the individual and designed to meet his or her particular goals, medical needs, and circumstances. This means that the lower eyelid surgery ideal for one person may be a specialized type of blepharoplasty while for another it may be a midface liftdesigned to correct tissue descent and return it to its proper anatomical location in the lower eye area.

Beyond that, once you and your oculoplastic surgeon determine the best procedure, it must be customized even further to fit your features and obtain natural results. In short, of the various types of lower eyelid surgery, the one or ones best for you will need to be tailored. Conversely, the worst lower eyelid surgery takes a standardized, one-size-fits-all approach.
Let's look at a few lower eyelid procedures to get familiar with some options and what they mean.

 

Blepharoplasty
There are different kinds of lower blepharoplasty, including the transconjunctival blepharoplasty transcutaneous blepharoplasty, and transconjunctival arcus marginalis release. A blepharoplasty is plastic surgery on the eyelid that can be designed to address concerns ranging from eyelid ptosis, excess fat or "puffiness," and loose or hanging skin. The doctor performing your blepharoplasty must carefully consider the subtle details of your facial features in order to determine details like how much (if any) fat to remove and where, how tight the eyelid skin should lie, and so on.

 

Canthal Surgery
Canthoplasty and canthopexy can be effectively combined with other eyelid procedures when the lower eyelid needs to be tightened with great precision, the canthal angle needs to be adjusted, or the eyelid position should be reinforced.

 

Fixing Eyelid Surgery
If you have had prior surgery whether from a specialist or nonspecialist and are now dissatisfied with your eyelid results, there is hope. By carefully choosing an oculoplastic surgeon whose practice emphasizes fixing eyelid surgery, you can improve your appearance and your confidence. Be sure to find a doctor who specializes in your concern, has a prestigious educational and professional background, and demonstrates his or her ability through natural-looking before and after photos. If you communicate clearly with a qualified doctor who makes sense to you, you can usually prevent unsatisfactory results.

 

Eyelid Reconstruction
Perhaps you have had lower eyelid cancer, partial facial paralysis, eye loss, or other medical complications that make you a candidate for beneficial eyelid reconstruction even if your issue occur years ago. The key here is examining and understanding the damage, then designing a treatment that addresses the structural needs of your condition. This type of surgery should address underlying problems and the special needs of trauma reconstruction.

 

Midface Lift
The midface lift is not specifically an eyelid surgery, but rather a midface surgery, as the name suggests. Many people who seek treatment for their lower eye concerns are surprised to learn that the problem may not be localized to the eyelid, but a problem of tissue descent in the midface. Restoring these tissues to their natural positions can make your eyes appear more alert and beautiful.

 

Under Eye Restylane
Under eye Restylane is a nonsurgical procedure to improve the under eye hollows, bags, or dark circles. This is an excellent option for those who may not be ready for surgery due to personal reasons, or for those who simply have a milder issue that does not need surgery yet.

The goal of eyelid surgery is not to make you look like a different person, but to enhance your features through improved details and restoration that brings out your individual best. You can see why your best lower eyelid surgery is personal to you.
