A traditional lower eyelid blepharoplasty is performed by removing excess fat under the eye. This method left the appearance of the eyes to look aged over time by giving the eyes a hollow appearance. Dr. Dahiya’s approach repositions the fat rather than remove it, creating a more youthful appearance. Contouring the fat around the eyes allows Dr. Dahiya to sculpt an individualized, natural look for each patient that will be maintained for years to come.
In recent years plastic surgeons have recognized more the need to restore youthful fullness to the face as a whole in order to achieve great results. Dr. Dahiya’s technique of preserving and repositioning of fat during a blepharoplasty compliments this contemporary approach to facial rejuvenation.
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty involves removing the excess skin that tends to hang in the upper eyelid. One aspect of the upper eyelid blepharoplasty that Dr. Dahiya is very particular about is on the outer edges of the upper eyelid. Some doctors are reluctant to excise the skin on the outer parts of the lid but Dr. Dahiya hides the incision in fine lines and over time the incision is not visible at all. This additional maneuver opens up the eyes where the hanging is often actually at its worst.
