This patient is a 65-75 year old female who didn't like the appearance of the extra skin crowding her eyes. She wanted an improvement that was natural and wouldn't change the shape of her eyes.
She underwent upper eyelid blepharoplasty that was covered by insurance as well as lower eyelid blepharoplasty with skin resurfacing. The after photograph is taken only 1 month after surgery.
This patient is a 55-65 year old male who was bothered by his upper eyelids "hooding" his vision. He also did not like the extra skin and wrinkles in his lower eyelids. It was important to him to not look overdone--he did not want to look like he had surgery and wanted to look his age, just more "refreshed."
This patient is a 40-50 year old female who felt her upper eyelids looked "droopy" and sad. She underwent a combination of blepharoplasty and ptosis repair. It was very important to her to keep the hispanic appearance and shape of her eyelids. She was very pleased with the final result.
This patient is a 40-50 year old Hispanic male who wanted to minimize his lower eyelid "bags". He felt the "bags" made him look older than his actual age.
The patient underwent trans-conjunctival transposition lower eyelid blepharoplasty. This minimally-invasive and advanced technique can be performed without a skin incision. This after photograph was taken at 1 month.
Learn More About Blepharoplasty
Also known as an “eyelid lift,” upper blepharoplasty can help to prove a more rested, happy, and open look.
As we age, the skin in our upper eyelids starts to stretch and wrinkle. Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is a surgery designed to remove the extra eyelid skin in a careful way. Dr. Vrcek prides himself on achieving natural results and never a “surprised” or sunken appearance of the eyes.
Dr. Vrcek uses minimally invasive techniques to hide the incision from upper blepharoplasty in a eyelid fold or wrinkle so that once fully healed, the incision virtually disappears.
