Cosmetic Concern: 46-year old woman with uneven upper eyelids and full lower eyelids.

Diagnosis: Mild dermatochlasis of the upper eyelids with greater heaviness in the left upper eyelid. The lower eyelids demonstrate herniated eyelid fat that creates the fullness in the lower eyelids

Treatment: Upper and lower blepharolplasty. The key here was to create as natural a look as possible. This was accomplished by balancing the work in the upper eyelids. Fat was removed from the lower eyelids with no skin incision. This type of eyelid surgery is called a tranconjunctival blepharoplasty. To avoid wrinkling in the lower eyelids after the removal of fat, a lower eyelid chemical peel was performed. The procedure is gentle and the work was accomplished in the office under local anesthetic.
