Upper Lid Blepharoplasty
Often patients ask me how soon they can return to work after Blepharoplasty. We use several innovative techniques to decrease down time. This patient is now 8 days after Volumizing Upper Lid Blepharoplasty (VULB).
This lovely 53-year-old patient had Volumising Upper Lid Blepharoplasty (VULB) and minimally invasive Ptosis repair. She has maintained a full youthful upper lid contour and has a brighter rejuvenated appearance.
This 38-year-old patient had concerns about her increasingly droopy upper eyelids. She felt that she was looking tired. I performed an Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty. She did extremely well with a natural looking result.
70-year-old Asian woman had a mutliple previous Blepharoplasty surgeries causing hollowing, ptosis and asymmetrical eyelid creases. I performed a Volumising Upper Lid Blepharoplasty (V.U.L.B) with Closed Posterior Levator Advancement ptosis repair (C.P.L.A) to achieve better symmetry and lid shape.
Male Upper Lid Blepharoplasty
This 51-year-old man received advice from his optometrist to undertake blepharoplasty surgery to avoid issues at old age. He underwent Upper Lid Volumising Blepharoplasty (ULVB) and Internal Brow Lift using a minimally invasive approach. 3 months after the surgery he appears rested and yet still maintains masculine contours.
Minimally invasive Brow Lift surgery in combination with Upper Lid Blepharoplasty is a common procedure that I perform. It’s important in male patients to ensure subtlety and preservation of masculine features to give a natural rejuvenated look. With minimally invasive techniques, post-operative swelling and bruising is minimised and patients can return to work more quickly. This 59-year-old man is shown 4 weeks post-operatively.
This 52-year-old patient noticed that his vision was compromised by the excess skin on his upper eyelids. I performed an Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty and this achieved a much more youthful appearance and improved his visual field dramatically.
This 56 year old man felt he looked older than he saw himself. A common issue with many of our patients. I performed a Lower Lid Volumizing Blepharoplasty (VLLB) and treatment of his festoons. At 1 month post-op he is healing well and will continue to improve for the next 6 months. It is important in these complex patients to avoid aggressive excision of skin and fat as this will age the patient.
Upper and Lower Lid Blepharoplasty
Quadrilateral Blepharoplasty involves surgery to the Upper and Lower lids and is very useful if you are concerned by upper lid droopiness and lower lid bags. It’s important to maintain volume and sculpt normal full contours to give a natural youthful look. I often perform Volumising Upper Lid Blepharoplasty with a minimally invasive Lower Lid Volumising Repositioning Blepharoplasty. I term these procedures VULB and VLLB! This lovely 54-year-old patient wanted to maintain her youthful fuller lids and it is important to preserve aesthetics. The patient was happy in their youth rather than completely change what they look like.
This 60-year-old woman was concerned by her tired look. I performed a Volumising Quadrilateral Blepharoplasty with fat preservation, sculpting and transposition. She has done very well with a more refreshed appearance.
This 50-year-old woman came to see me with very heavy upper eyelids and puffy lower lids, which made her look tired. I performed a Quadrilateral Fat Volumising Blepharoplasty to achieve a refreshed, natural-looking result and a smooth eyelid contour.
This 65-year-old female patient was unhappy about her aged appearance. On the upper lids, I performed an Anterior Ptosis Repair with a Volumising Custom Upper Lid Blepharoplasty and on the lower lids, a Transconjunctival Fat Repositioning & Volumizing Blepharoplasty. She has done very well, and comments that her quality of life has increased greatly post-operatively.
Lower Lid Blepharoplasty
This 31 year old woman had familial lower lid bags. Surgery, not filler is the best management of this problem. I performed a Transconjunctival Volumizing Lower Lid Blepharoplasty (VLLB) with fat apron repositioning internally. This approach gives natural, long lasting results.
This 39 year old woman was troubled by “dark circles” and bags under her eyes. She had considered fillers but wanted a more permanent solution. This is taken 3 weeks after a Volumising Lower Lid Blepharoplasty (VLLB). Surgery involved an internal hidden incision and preservation and repositioning of the fat into the hollow internally. There are no good reasons to ever have an external incision for lower lid blepharoplasty in younger patients.
This 38 year old patient was concerned about looking tired. She had seen many doctors who kept suggesting fillers but she was concerned with potentila long term issues. I performed a lower lid transpositional volumizing blepharoplasty (VLLB) with autologous fat transfer to the cheeks. She has a lovely rejuvenated natural appearance at her 3 month postop visit and is delighted with the outcome. It’s important to consider surgery as an option for tear trough rejuvenation in younger patients.
53 year old woman who was troubled by dark circles. Had multiple attempts at filler which left her unhappy.Patients with deep set eyes and minimal fat prolapse are important to recognise in Lower lid Blepharoplasty to ensure that potential complications don’t arise. She underwent Volumizing lower lid Blepharoplasty (VLLB) with structural anatomic preservation techniques and volumizing of the midface with autologous fat.
The youthful 45 year old woman wanted a natural improvement to her lower lids. She had tried fillers and non-invasive options but was not satisfied with the results. I performed a Tran-conjuctival Lower Lid Volumising Blepharoplasty (VLLB) with fat repositioning internally to the tear through depression without any fat excision. I often see Lower Lid Blepharoplasty performed Trans-cutaneously in younger patients and I believe this is contraindicated when we can obtain great results without a scar on the skin.
35 woman who had tried fillers many times but was unhappy with the lumpiness and the fact they didnt last. I preformed a Lower Lid Trans- conjuctival fat repositioning and Voluming Blepharoplasty.
This 31-year-old female patient previously had Tear Trough Filler which had to be removed due to lumpiness and swelling. I performed a Fat Volumising Minimal Incision Lower Lid Blepharoplasty. (V.L.L.B) She has done very well and achieved a smooth eyelid contour and natural looking result.
This patient in her early 30s was concerned about lower eyelid bags on both sides, and I performed a Lower Eyelid Fat Volumizing and Repositioning Blepharoplasty. She has achieved a very beautiful eyelid contour and natural-looking result.
Its important to recognise different facial configurations and aesthetics when evaluation a patient for Blepharoplasty. This 33 year old patient had undergone a lower lid blepharoplasty where fat was excised in
her 20’s. Her dark circles are related to her deep set eye and bony structure and often removing fat makes this worse. She came to see me complaining of hollowed tired eyes. This is one of the few instances where judiciously placed filler below the tear trough may be of use. I often see problems with young patients who have had a reductive Blepharoplasty when young especially if its done via a skin incision.
This lovely young patient was troubled by her asymmetric upper lids. I performed minimally invasive aesthetic ptosis repair (CPLA) to improve her eyelid crease and lid position and harmonise her face.
This lovely 52-year-old lady felt she looked tired and wanted a more refreshed look. We discussed options for eyelid and brow surgery as she also wanted a higher crease and a more sculpted look. We performed a Volumising Upper Lid Blepharoplasty (VULB) with crease elevation and a hairline brow lift. She is now 2 months post-op and doing well. Her incisions will continue to improve but she looks great already!
31-year-old woman with severe left-sided ptosis. A minimally invasive ptosis repair (CPLA – Closed Posterior Levator Advancement) with no skin incision to decrease scarring was performed. In younger patients it is critical to discuss options for ptosis repair that don’t involve incisions on the upper lid skin. 1 month after surgery, the symmetry is excellent.
