East Asian Blepharoplasty ( upper eyelid surgery )

Procedure Details

Eyelid surgery or a blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the upper lids, lower lids or both. It can also be used to help with your vision if the upper eyelid is droopy. Sagging extra skin of the upper eyelid can disturb the contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision. Fat deposits can cause the upper eyelid to appear puffy. Bags and wrinkles on the lower eyelid can be treated with a lower eyelid blepharoplasty. Asian blepharoplasty is particularly challenging for the surgeon. The typical American blepharoplasty surgery can result in losing the upper Asian fold after blepharoplasty. Special attention to this attractive cosmetic feature must be taken to preserve the fold. This Harrisburg area patient is a 64-year-old Asian female who has had difficulty seeing. She noted excess skin on her upper drooping eyelids. She was seen by her ophthalmologist who performed visual field testing, showing an upper visual field deficit, better with elevation of the eyelids. She stated that she could not see many things due to the excess skin and droopy eyelids.
