Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD
This patient, in his early 50’s, came away from his San Jose Cosmetic Surgery experience, with even more benefits than he had hoped for.
He came to see Dr. Lepore, at the recommendation of his eye doctor. He’d been complaining that his heavy eyelids were actually interfering with his ability to see. He even said that he’d developed a habit of lifting his forehead with his hand, just so he’d be able to see better!
Dr. Lepore explained what Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, might accomplish in his case. Removing an appropriate amount of fat from the upper lids, could indeed eliminate that “heaviness” the patient complained of, and with that volume gone from his lids, the patient could expect improvement with his upper, outward peripheral gaze.
The patient decided to proceed with surgery, on both his upper and lower eyelids. After the fat was removed, Dr. Lepore then tailored the remaining skin and fat, for a natural appearance.
The patient is now very pleased with his result, on several levels. He’s happy that his visual ability is improved, and that he no longer needs to lift his forehead to be able to see. But he’s also noting the cosmetic benefit of his surgery. His San Jose blepharoplasty took years off his appearance, and has given him a much more refreshed look. Today, many men are interested in this type of surgery, particularly in our highly competitive job market.
