Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD
One of the many examples of Blepharoplasty in San Jose.
This patient was bothered by signifigant drooping and sagging of the upper and lower eyelids, giving her eyes a somewhat hooded appearance which she didn't feel represented her true self.
The patient decided to have both an upper and lower blepharoplasty, or "eyelid lift." The surgery is done under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation and can be performed in approximately an hour to an hour and a half. The sutures are usually removed within a week, and the patient can return to regular activities within a week or two.
Following her surgery patient was pleased with the outcome and her more youthful, open look.
