What sort of results can I expect from eyelid surgery?

I perform upper eyelid and lower eyelid surgery. The indications for upper eyelid surgery include laxity of upper lid skin resulting in a hooded appearance of the upper lids. Trimming of this excess skin can result in a brighter, more open, appearance to the eyes. When it comes to lower lid surgery, there are several factors that play into the type of surgery and the expectations. For example, some patients may present with fullness of the lower lids, a crease or hollowness between the cheeks and lower lids, and a loss of volume in the cheeks. In this setting, we perform surgery to remove some of the fat that causes the fullness in the lower lids, transpose or re-position some of the fat into the areas of hollowness, and lift the cheek, thus resulting in a more youthful contour between the lower lids and cheeks.
