    This patient wished to have an upper and lower lid cosmetic blepharoplasty. He was unhappy about his asymmetric upper lids and “loose” skin in his lower lids. He had mild ptosis (droopy lid) of his left upper lid as well. He underwent upper lid ptosis (droopy lid surgery) repair as well as upper and lower lid blepharoplasty. He specifically underwent a lower lid orbicularis suspension flap (skin-muscle flap) blepharoplasty where the skin and muscle where re-suspended to allow for the removal of excess skin while tightening the underlying muscle layers. This is one of the types of techniques that Dr. Zoumalan uses when performing a lower lid blepharoplasty. The post-operative photo was taken four months after undergoing surgery. You can read more about this type of blepharoplasty technique at the PDF link below at the end of this page.

    Preoperative Diagnosis Above:Upper lid ptosis and upper and lower lid dermatochalasia.
