Lower lid blepharoplasty, also known as ‘lower eyelid tuck’, has progressed far beyond the general public’s idea of an eyelid tuck – it is now a highly-customizable procedure. This 55-year-old woman had bulging fatty pads and extra skin beneath her lower lids, as well as hollowing caused by fat loss in other areas of her face.  Less noticeable, but still important, is the subtle downward sagging of the outside of her lower lid, a sign of aging that can be improved at the time of her surgery.  She underwent lower lid blepharoplasty to remove the extra skin beneath her eyes, and we also removed the bulging fat pads. She had some additional fat removed from beneath her lower lashes, and fat harvested from other areas of her body was injected into her cheeks and the neighboring areas to add youthful volume. Just as exciting as blepharoplasty and fat injections, although more subtle, is the further tightening of her lower lids through a canthopexy. This is a permanent suture that tightens the lower lid and takes away the sagging area beneath and to the outside of the eye.  Look carefully at the before and after pictures and you will see that she has a very subtle more youthful upsweep to the lower lid height as you look along the underside of her eye from her nose to her ear.

We are excited to announce our reopening as of May 1st. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: Our commitment to your safety.

Consultations are available in our office and we will continue to offer Virtual Consultations as well. You will be asked to complete your registration paperwork in our secure patient portal prior to your appointment and your consultation fee will be collected by phone to minimize contact.

Here are a few changes we have made as we transition to this new era:

  • Please reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well, have a fever, have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 or travelled internationally within the last month.
  • We will limit the number of people in the building and waiting area to maintain social distancing and our staff will be wearing masks until restrictions are eased.
  • Please wear a mask during your visit but do not wear gloves. You will be given hand sanitizer.
