Enlarged eye after upper and lower blepharoplasty

This is a question that regards a patient who had a bigger right eye after n upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty and was wondering if it is due to the surgery and whether it will get better.  This is a question that I answered for someone who had a procedure by another physician. This persons right eye was larger than the left. This can happen with lower eyelid blepharoplasty when this procedure entails taking skin and fat. The skin resection and the scar contracture is what can cause the lower eyelid to retract downwards revealing more eye in that particular eye.  This can take a while to resolve on its own.   Sometimes, steroid injections can help.

In the long run, it may require other procedures to improve the retraction in the skin of the lower eyelid when the scarring occurs after lower eyelid blepharoplasty. This is one reason why I don’t prefer thenullas a procedure and believe in restoring volume to the lower eyelid and cheek region. I also prefer fat injections for this area for a longer lasting effect and more natural looking results. Sometimes this takes up to a year for the tightness to get better and for things to look better. Patience can be a virtue during this transition after a lower eyelid blepharoplasty.

The YoungLift is an amazing procedure that uses a person’s own tissue to volumize the face.  I incorporate my theory of facial aesthetics to volumize the face in a unique way to make people look more younger in a more natural way.
