Surgeon: Steven Bates, M.D.
Sometimes, pictures do tell the story. This woman, in her early 60s, had severely drooping and hanging eyelids, and a dramatic surgical result. Her upper lids were draping over her eyes, affecting her vision. It was so severe, that she had developed headaches from constantly lifting her brows to see. Dr. Bates performed an upper eyelid blepharoplasty to remove the excess skin and improve her visual fields. For the lower eyelids, he performed an extended blepharoplasty with cheek soft tissue release, and redraping of her eyelid fat into the cheek. She is very happy with her natural, refreshed result, and her headaches are gone.
