I am looking for treatment options for these awful bags under my eyes. Would appreciate sug
Festoons
Jan 14, 2019
From your photo, it appears you have festoons.Festoons are fluid-filled appearing areas in the lower eyelid/cheek junction. They are notoriously difficult to treat, usually persisting to some degree after surgery. They represent any area of skin damage (i.e. from the sun) or perhaps abnormal lymphatics in the area. They can be directly excised, which may lead to some permanent scar. Other treatments could be a small dose of an oral dieuretic, injection of medication (tetracycline),…
Could this be strabismus from blepharoplasty?
Convergence issues
Jan 14, 2019
You have mentioned a few issues. Let me address each one individually. A small ampliture twitch in an eyelid is called myokymia and is very common. Typically it lasts for a few days to weeks, less commonly longer than that. It could be related to stress/changes in sleep habits/changes in caffeine intake. Persistent “swelling” under one eye is most likely not post-operative swelling this far from surgery. It is mostly likely an abnormal contour due to a fat pad. Problems with bringing the…
Are my different-sized eyes a result of swelling?
Allow for post-operatie swelling to subside
Jan 14, 2019
Post-operative swelling usually peaks at 1 week. The majority is typically gone by 2 weeks, but people heal at different rates. You should allow 1 month before you evaluate the post-operative result. If you think about how that eye looked 2 days post-operatively vesus at 1 week, I am sure you can see a difference. As long as you are seeing a little bit of improvement daily, you are on the road to recovery. I am confident that any difference in the size and shape of your eye are due to the…
Sclera show and lateral rounding after lower blepharoplasty (7 weeks post op) what will fix
Mild lower eyelid retraction
Apr 18, 2017
You do indeed have mild bilateral lower eyelid retraction after your blepharoplasty. This is not an uncommon occurrence and is due to some scarring in the middle layer of the eyelid. Massage the outer lower eyelid margin upward several times daily. With time, this mild post-operative change may be improve. Allow a minimum of six months to heal and re-evaluate. Reconstructive surgery may involve re-suspending the eyelid, releasing scar tissue and possibly placing a graft of tissue. It is…
I dont know my left eye has ptosis or excess skin?
Mild ptosis
Apr 18, 2017
You clearly have mild ptosis of that upper eyelid. The vertical aperture of that eye is smaller than the other and you can see that the light reflex on the cornea is closer to the edge of the upper eyelid on the droopy side. Removing skin will not correct this problem. The muscle in the eyelid needs to be tightened in order to raise the eyelid. You may be a good candidate for a procedure from the underside of the eyelid since you have no excess upper eyelid skin to remove. This would leave…
Is there an increased risk for a second blepharoplasty?
Repeat blepharoplasty
Sep 23, 2016
It is definitely possible to have a second blepharoplasty. A new incision is created adjacent to the old incision so that the old incision is excised. The risks of infection, scarring, bruising, etc. are the same as with primary surgery. The risks of repeat blepharoplasty are mainly excision of too much skin with subsequent impaired closure and/or blink and damage to the superficial muscle that closes your eyes which could result in impaired blinking and closure. Perhaps your…
Uneven eyelid post incisional blepharoplasty. Any other options in the future to correct th
Great result
Sep 22, 2016
I don’t think your incisions look uneven at all in the picture with your eyes closed, and your eyelids look terrific when open. Your mild asymmetry is from a little more skin on the left upper eyelid leading to more “fullness” above the crease. This could also be from the left eyelid crease being lower but it does not appear that way in the picture with your eyes closed. No two sides of the face are exactly identical. I think this is a good result. A pre-op photo would be…
What is going on with my right eye? Smaller and higher than right.
Change in eyelid position
Sep 22, 2016
I don’t think a neurologist will help you. I would see an oculoplastic surgeon – this is an ophthalmologist who specializes in the eyelids and orbit. In the pictures, it appears you have asymmetry between the two eyes with regards to eyelid position. This can be caused by thyroid disease or a change in the position of the actual eyeball (one eye either pushed out or sunken in). I would have your thyroid checked. I would also make sure they check that you don’t have a…
Follow-up Question – Tyndall or Injector?
Filler in tear troughs
Sep 22, 2016
It looks like either too much filler or too superficial under the skin. Tear trough injections are typically placed just under the muscle along the bony lining. After one year, most of the filler is likely broken down but I would still consider having it dissolved with hyaluronidase. The hyaluronidase will work instantly but I would give the swelling and the skin a few weeks to recover before having this area filled again. I would see someone who is very experienced in filling this…
Strong under eye lines and bags that mostly appear when smiling. Recommendations?
Under eye wrinkling with smiling
Sep 20, 2016
When you smile, the ring muscle around the eyes bunches up and that bunching gets transmitted to the overlying skin. This is what causes the strong lines under your eyes with smiling. You can try a small dose of Botox to the central lower eyelid to prevent the muscle from bunching as much. A longer lasting solution would be to have a lower eyelid blepharoplasty and have a conservative amount of skin and muscle resected so the area is less redundant. Good luck!
Can this lazy eye be fixed? What are the risks?
Congenital ptosis
Sep 20, 2016
From your picture, it appears you have bilateral ptosis (drooping), worse on the left side. If present since birth, the cause of this drooping is poor development of a muscle in your eyelid. There is surgery to raise up the eyelid but what exact technique will help depends largely on how severe your ptosis is and how well (or poorly) the eyelid muscle works. Surgery could certainly make things worse or introduce new problems for you. Adults generally tolerate ptosis surgery less well than…
Dry eye after ptosis surgery
Dry eye after ptosis surgery
Sep 20, 2016
Dry eye after ptosis surgery is quite common. The severity of dryness post-operatively will be influenced by how much dryness there was pre-operatively and how much more open your eyes are after surgery. Your surgeon should have assessed your dry eye symptoms and exam pre-operatively and counseled you accordingly. Dryness after ptosis surgery may last weeks to months. You should be aggressively lubricating the eyes with aritifial tears and using a gel drops or gel in the…
I think my Ptosis is worse after surgery. What do you think?
Ptosis after surgery
Sep 20, 2016
It would be helpful to see a pre-operative photo to see the comparison before and after surgery. It looks like the right upper eyelid is still a little low. At seven months post-operatively, there is no more swelling. This is an under correction of the ptosis, which happens. The contour and lid crease are nice. If you are not happy with the appearance and the vision is still being obstructed by the drooping, a revision can be considered. A revision may be approached from the skin…
My left eyelid is lower than my right. How do I fix it?
Mild ptosis
Sep 19, 2016
It appears from the photo that you have mild ptosis (drooping) of the left upper eyelid. This can be corrected by tightening the tendon of the muscle (levator) within the eyelid. This can be approached either from the front of the eyelid (lid crease incision) or from the underside of the eyelid. Your surgeon can test you with drops in the office to see if you are a candidate for the latter procedure. This condition will slowly worsen and affect your vision more. Good luck!
My eyes within the past 2-3 months have become extremely swollen underneath. What in the wo
Under eye swelling
Sep 13, 2016
Although your posted picture is of quite poor quality, it appears that you have some prolapse of lower eyelid fat. This happens with aging and can be worsened with fatigue, stress, other medical problems (like thyroid dysfunction). Given your age and good quality of lower eyelid skin, a transconjunctival (incision from within the lower eyelid) lower eyelid blepharoplasty with conservative excision of fat and possibly fat re-positioning would greatly improve the contour and…
