Before and After Photos

  • Before Photo-Ptosis Surgery Patient 63
    After Photo-Ptosis Surgery Patient 63

    This patient has significant excess skin in both upper lids (left worse than right), which was resulting in difficulty seeing well.  He also had a droopy left upper lid (ptosis), which needed to be repaired at the same time. He underwent upper lid blepharoplasty to remove the excess skin and a left lid ptosis repair. At the same time, a left external browpexy was performed to keep his left brow stabilized while he heals since his left brow position was lower than the right.  The incisions have healed well with little to no signs of surgery.  Note the improvement in his ability to see better and appear more rested from this surgery.

    Preoperative Diagnosis: Excess skin (dermatochalasia), upper lids. Ptosis, left upper lid.

    Procedure performed: Upper lid blepharoplasty, left ptosis repair, left external browpexy.

  • Before Photo-Ptosis Surgery Patient 62
    After Photo-Ptosis Surgery Patient 62

    This patient had droopy upper lids and excess skin, both of which together were resulting in her inability to see well and constantly appearing tired.  A skin-only blepharoplasty along with a minimally invasive ptosis repair (using the same incisions) was performed. The patient did well and was very happy with her results.
