She has to raise her brows to see better. Upper lid ptosis surgery was performed using a minimally invasive technique. All the incisions on the upper lids were made internally so there are no visible scars. She also had lower lid revisional eyelid surgery using Alloderm graft and a canthoplasty.

    This 38 year-old femalewished to undergo upper eyelid surgery to help remove the excess kin in her upper lids. The excess skin was resulting in difficulty seeing and headaches. She also noticed some mild hollowing in her lower lid infraorbital rim area (tear trough area), which looked like mild lower lid dark circles.
