During the pre-operative consultation, the surgeon will evaluate the condition of the patient’s upper and lower lids and recommend the most suitable blepharoplasty technique for them.

Muse Plastic Surgery, led by double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Wright Jones, provides blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta, GA, and surrounding communities in the glorious state of Georgia.

 

Upper Blepharoplasty

Upper eyelid lift surgery treats the puffiness, wrinkles, and droopiness in the upper eyelids. When a person ages, their upper eyelids can droop causing a partial obstruction in their vision. An upper eyelid surgery can address this condition. The surgeon will place tiny incision across the crease of the eyelid.

According to the patient’s needs, the surgeon may tighten the eye muscles through the incisions and remove exact amounts of excess skin creating a brighter, more youthful eye appearance.

They may also redistribute excess fat for more natural looking outcomes. Plastic surgeon to the stars Dr. Wright Jones provides upper eyelid lift surgery to appropriate candidates.

 

Lower Blepharoplasty

The muscles beneath the eyes may sag due to aging. This causes the fat to become protuberant leading to the appearance of under eye bags. This condition can cause the face to look tired and weary.

The misplaced fat can also cause the appearance of shadows or dark circles beneath the eyes. The tear troughs may also descend lower towards the cheeks.

A lower eyelid lift cosmetic surgery can correct these conditions. The plastic surgeon will place tiny incisions to eliminate excess skin, redistribute the fat pockets more evenly, and offer a smoother and more chiseled appearance from the lower lash line to the cheeks.

Patients can accomplish a more aesthetically appealing and balanced facial appearance with the lower eyelid lift procedure.

 

Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty

The plastic surgeon may recommend a transconjunctival lower eyelid surgery in case the under eye bags are not very prominent. This technique involves the excision of excess fatty deposits from the lower eyelids without removing any skin.

The surgeon can achieve this by placing many small incisions within the lower eyelid. This technique is less invasive and does not create any external scarring. Famous plastic surgeon Dr. Wright Jones will carefully assess whether the patient may benefit from a transconjunctival blepharoplasty.

 

Combination Blepharoplasty

Certain patients may need correction in the upper eyelids as well as the under eye area which may have fat pockets. For such patients, the plastic surgeon may undertake a combination blepharoplasty to treat both upper and lower parts of the eyes. This helps the patient attain more balanced and natural looking outcomes.

The eye surgeon will place tiny incisions within the eyelid lines or eye creases to eliminate sagging skin, redistribute fat deposits, and contour eye muscles. At times, a combination eyelid lift may be performed with a brow lift to address any loose skin above the eyes.

 

Outcomes

The outcomes of the eyelid lift procedure will vary among patients. However, most patients will find the results satisfactory and will experience an enhancement in their eye and upper face appearance. A majority of patients seek to accomplish a more youthful and alert eye appearance.

Others may experience relief when their vision obstruction is treated with the eyelid lift surgery. Celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Wright Jones receives patients from Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta, GA, and other towns and cities in The Peach State for eyelid surgery.
