A Total Rejuvenation of the Periorbital Region

Periorbital rejuvenation is a comprehensive approach to enhancing the appearance of the regions around the eyes, i.e., the periorbital area. This comprehensive procedure includes upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty with fat reduction or pinch blepharoplasty, lateral canthopexy, and strategic fat grafting to harmonize the lid and cheek junction. By addressing multiple aspects of the periorbital area, we make your eyes look alert and revitalized.

Periorbital Rejuvenation Corrects:

  • Drooping or sagging upper eyelids
  • Puffy bags and excess skin under the eyes
  • Hollow or sunken appearance around the eyes
  • Creases, wrinkles, and fine lines in the eye area
  • Uneven or asymmetrical eyelid contours
  • Loose or lax lower eyelid muscles
  • Prominent tear troughs or dark circles
  • Disproportionate eyelid-cheek junction
  • Overall signs of aging and fatigue in the periorbital region

Upper Blepharoplasty

Upper blepharoplasty rejuvenates the upper eyelids. It involves the removal of excess skin, muscle, and fat from the upper eyelid area. The surgery begins with incisions made along the natural creases of the upper eyelids, ensuring minimal scarring. Excess tissue is carefully excised, and the remaining skin is repositioned for a more youthful appearance. Upper blepharoplasty can address drooping eyelids and improve vision obstruction.

Lower Blepharoplasty

Lower blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure aimed at revitalizing the lower eyelid area. This procedure addresses common concerns such as under-eye bags, puffiness, and loose skin, which can contribute to a tired or aged appearance. A lower eyelid surgery can be performed using two techniques: fat reduction or pinch blepharoplasty. Pinch blepharoplasty and fat reduction are combined seamlessly to comprehensively enhance the lower eyelid area.

By strategically removing excess skin and reducing bulging fat pockets, this dual approach addresses sagging, and puffiness, and creates a harmonious contour for a more youthful appearance. The combined effects of pinch blepharoplasty and fat reduction offer a versatile and nuanced solution for those seeking personalized lower eyelid rejuvenation.

Fat Reduction Technique

Fat reduction during lower blepharoplasty involves the strategic removal or repositioning of excess fat deposits that accumulate beneath the eyes. Dr. Z makes subtle incisions on the inside of the lower eyelid (transconjunctival) to access and address the fat pockets. Once accessed, the surgeon can redistribute or excise the excess fat, smoothing out the under-eye contours for a more youthful and refreshed look.

Pinch Blepharoplasty

Pinch blepharoplasty is a variation of lower blepharoplasty to correct excess, crepey skin of the lower eyelid without causing the complications associated with the traditional skin/muscle flap approach. In this procedure, a complement to transconjunctival fat reduction, Dr. Z “pinches” the excess skin below the lash line before excising it and closing the incision. Dr Z harnesses this powerful technique, learned from Lorne Rosenfield, a pioneer and major proponent of pinch blepharoplasty, to provide subtle yet significant improvements in under-eye appearance.

Lateral Canthopexy

Lateral canthopexy is a surgical technique to address sagging or laxity in the outer corners of the eyes, known as the lateral canthal area. Dr. Z makes small incisions at the outer corners of the eyes. Through these incisions, he can access and tighten the canthal tendon, securing it in a more elevated position. This procedure effectively lifts the outer corners of the eyes, reducing the appearance of sagging and restoring a more alert and rejuvenated look.

Fat Grafting

Fat grafting is a specialized component of periorbital rejuvenation. This technique involves the transfer of a patient’s own fat from one area of the body to the junction between the lower eyelid and cheek. By carefully injecting purified fat cells into this region, Dr. Z restores volume and contour to create a smoother, more youthful transition between the lower eyelid and the cheek, ultimately enhancing the overall aesthetics of the eyes and face.
