This patient could not see well because of his droopy upper eyelids and excess skin. His eyes were also drying out because of his lower eyelid laxity. He underwent ptosis repair and blepharoplasty of both upper eyelids, and canthoplasty ectropion repair of both lower eyelids, with wonderful results.
This patient’s severe dermatochalasis was weighing her eyelids down and affecting her ability to see superiorly, read for long periods of time, and apply makeup. She underwent bilateral upper eyelid functional blepharoplasties, with care taken to avoid excess skin removal given her prominent brows and deep-set eyes. Post-operatively she felt less tired and enjoyed the youthful look and contour of her eyelids.
