As you age, fat deposits around the eyes at sites where there is loss of tissue elasticity which causes the brows and cheek fat pads to droop, creating bags under the eyes.
That is why, Blepharoplasty has become one of the most requested surgeries. Dr. Abi Akl performs upper and lower blepharoplasty and corrects excessive eyelid skin and drooping. Pros of this simple procedure are local anesthesia and short recovery time. This procedure takes 1-2 hours and you can resume your daily activities in 3-5 days. Revision rate is very low.
During your first consultation, Dr. Abi Akl will assess the position of your eyelids and brows, and the presence of excess fat and skin. In case of excessive fat removal due to previous surgery, Dr. Abi Akl is also an expert in revision surgery and can perform an upper eyelid fat transposition.
In almost every case, Dr. Abi Akl adds to this procedure a lower eyelid fat transposition to ensure a long-lasting outcome. Sometimes he may add a canthoplasty, canthopexy or tarsal strip.
In this procedure, fat is released from under the eye and repositioned in the tear trough.
